If you are stubborn or don't want to read 'crap' on religion, I suggest you go back
to the home menu. Any comments arguing against this or saying stupid things will be
ignored and deleted.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.






























So, I noticed there's a common misunderstanding about Christianity. People say that
we ''stuff religion down their throats saying ' Believe in God or you'll go to
hell.'''

That's not the truth.
It's not the believing in God part that separates us from him and sends us to hell.
It's sin that does that. As soon as we sin, there is a huuuuge gap between us and
God. Nobody alone could cross that gap. Not even the greatest Christian in the world.
You could be the greatest Christian in history, and only make about 1000th of the
way. God then sent his son, Jesus to save us from out sins. He died on the cross,
(Even though I think that was wrong of us...)  and was buried in the tomb. 3 days
later, on Sunday, he rose to heaven. If you accept Jesus as our savior, and ask him
to forgive your sins, you will be saved. Jesus then acts like a bridge and allows us
to cross him and get to heaven. (And of course, we're going to sin again, but we can
always ask for forgiveness. You just have to mean it.)

Also, I just want to clear something up.
If someone were to ask me why I deserve to go to heaven, let me answer that.
I don't.
I don't deserve to go to heaven. I'm a sinner, just like everyone else. But Jesus is
so loving, and he wants me to go to heaven, just like he wants everyone else, so he
allows me to go to heaven. (I sort of think of it as heaven as a clubhouse, and you
have to say a password to get in, only instead of a password, you have to ask for
forgiveness from God.)

Also, Jesus and God are the same person. Just to clear things up.

Hope you found my rant on the misunderstanding of Christianity interesting.

wow, sam, i had no idea you were a christian too!

i'm one, and i really wanna get baptised, but my dad won't let me!
 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   17 March 2009   956578  
Your dad won't let you get baptized?? Madness!

Actually, I haven't been baptized yet, but I want to badly!!
Yay! I'm not alone!
 
‹SqueeneyTodd› says:   17 March 2009   258542  
I agree. I don't stuff my religion down people's throats. That's even
worse for me because I'm Catholic, and Catholics are said to be the
worst when it comes to stuffing beliefs down other's throats. D:

How could he send his only son if we're all gods children?

... Yes and he was a carpenter, born of a virgin, and walked on water.
I know about Jesus. The reason i wrote those comments isn't because
have anything against any religion, but because people will make these
stupid diaries with titles that don't tell you their about
religion at all,  and inside it says that unless you accept God by
passing it on then your unholy or whatever. And there's always
something about how the reader passes on dirty messages on Myspace.
(The worst example of these entries is "Don't read if your under 13"
but there are countless other, and there all stupid and prejudice.)
 
Kirti says:   17 March 2009   129927  
This diary is fine- it says right in the title that it's about
Christianity. If the title was "I bet no one will read this" then it
would be under handed and shoving religion down your throut.

I thought I was the only one on Kupika that wanted baptised! Woo!
Dunno why he won't let me, he wants me to wait a few months, but I'm
not going anywhere near August!
 
‹Funn_size› says:   18 March 2009   756572  
that is so true and i am proud to be a christian! yays

That clubhouse metaphor was excellent! That's exactly how I pictured
a 'heaven' to look like.
 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   19 March 2009   362383  
>.> wow.

Really? ( I thought it sounded a bit weird. xD )
 
Kirti says:   19 March 2009   369723  
I thought heaven was just the garden of eden though.

and the garden of eden matches old pagan descriptions of the
summerlands exactly. which is something I've always liked- when two
opposing sources come to the same conclusion then it's much more
likely to be an accurate reflection of reality.
 
Kirti says:   19 March 2009   344547  
*reads other comments more closey*

Hm? Baptisism, eh? Why do you want that so badly? (While the idea of
spirtiual cleansing is both appealing and multi-cultural, I can't see
why you would want lots of people there watching it -at our age
at any rate- just seems awkward. I'd much rather dunk my head under
water in private. But that's just me, and as I may have said before, I
haven't got a full grasp of Christianity. Or so I'm told. I'll just
end this extensive parenthesi thing though.)
 
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   20 March 2009   132189  
i want to do it in front of all my friends, as proof i've given my
life to Him!
 
Kirti says:   20 March 2009   147651  
*horrified* Why would God want to take your life?!
 
kell39 says:   20 March 2009   148914  
wow thats really entense
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   21 March 2009   376152  
Kirti: God doesn't want your life. He doesn't need you, he just wants
you. He loves you, and he wants you to come to heaven when you die,
and not join Satan the prat the devil in hell
 
‹[DAHNANANA..BATMAN!!]› says:   26 April 2009   155188  
uhm.. Tamer.. I don't really understand..

I don't believe in any God, so I've never asked for any kind of
forgiveness.

If I'm wrong and there really is a God, does this mean I'll go to hell
for my sins because I havent been forgiven?
 
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   26 April 2009   558871  
Well, that's the general idea, Dinosawr...
 
HNB180 says:   26 April 2009   483657  
I AM PROUD TO BE A CHRISTIAN
 
‹[DAHNANANA..BATMAN!!]› says:   26 April 2009   833378  
WAIT! SO IF I'M WRONG I GO TO HELL!?!? NOW I'M SCARED!!

*Deletes WA's comments*
:D
 
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   27 April 2009   826383  
woo! go sam!

no, if you're a good person, dino, you'll go to heaven 
 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   27 April 2009   441769  
Actually, that's a common misunderstanding.
Catholics seem to believe that, but that's not completely true.
 
‹[DAHNANANA..BATMAN!!]› says:   27 April 2009   151125  
Sooo if I be a real good person and if god is real I might go to
heaven?
 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   27 April 2009   425161  
I just said, it's not being a good person that get's you into Heaven.
V_V''
 
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   27 April 2009   978913  
yeah, i guess it's about knowing that you did wring with your sins
and getting them forgiven and doing good, right?
 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   27 April 2009   781671  
Well, the first part is right, but you don't really need to do good
to get into heaven. But then again, you're not really suppose to sin a
lot either. If you have The Holy Spirit (A part of God) In you, you
can feel guilt for sin, and that in turn allows you to ask for
forgiveness. :]
 
‹[DAHNANANA..BATMAN!!]› says:   27 April 2009   211823  
Okay. I'm sorry but I have to say this.

The God you worshipp seems like a bit of a meany.

So, good people who help others and are just darn right good people
that don't believe in this 'God' will go to hell?

I find that just wrong.

And I will not worship a God that thinks that way.

I don't believe there can be a heaven. I think even that could turn to
hell eventually if you're stuck there for a long time. True happiness
is with those you love, so in heaven, you would just have to wait for
your loved ones to die!?
 
‹[DAHNANANA..BATMAN!!]› says:   27 April 2009   912928  
Also, I will not beg for forgiveness just to get into this 'heaven'.

It sorta defeats the point. Using God for yourself. I will beg for
forgiveness when I feel that I want this 'God's forgiveness.

But from your veiws of him, I don't want much to do with him.
 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   27 April 2009   728524  
*sigh* This is a bit difficult to explain.
Why don't you just go to a sermon at a church near you (Maybe the one
JoJo goes to, if she does) and ask about it. It's easier then me
trying to explain. :]
 
‹[DAHNANANA..BATMAN!!]› says:   27 April 2009   998524  
I have no clue what a sermon church is and where the closest one is
:P

Plus, I wouldn't be allowed. No one but my Grandparents believe in a
God.

I find it near enough impossible to believe in a God. (Then why am I
so worried about this? XD ) And science near enough proves against
it.

I'd rather trust science.

But I would like to believe in some kind of God...

But, when I die, I'd rather not to go heaven or hell. I'd rather just
die. Who really wants eternity..?
 
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   27 April 2009   525917  
of course i go to church, sam!

well, eternity isn't everything, but i'd prefer heaven.
sermon church is just church.
i'm sure you'd be allowed. there's one down in irvine!
science sucks,
oh, it's possible to believe in a god.

@XxXxANIME4EVAxXxX 
I think that, if people were brought up differently and never knew
about Christianity or had the chance to experience it, you get into
Heaven simply on knowing that you made mistakes and feeling sorry for
them, whether or not you directly ask for God's forgiveness.
Also, I personally don't believe in Hell, but whatever.  That's just
me. 
 
Breakthrough says:   18 July 2010   978731  
@tiggerlemon101 
I respect your beliefs. (: I'm a Christian, but I believe in much
deeper things than simply the bible. I believe in souls and space. I
think that the Gods of whatever, whichever one exists, thought our
world was so cool and meaningful that they ad to put life on it. I'm
not against suicide becaue Christianity hates it, I'm against it
because I don't really have much respect for people who didn't live on
to even find out why the Gods of whatever put life on this planet -
they just kind of ended it before they could even try and overcome
their sorrow. I mean, the reason I'm so happy now is because I've
overcome sorrow, and there's no better feeling than that. And seeing
as I'm in this life for a long time before I find out the meaning of
it all, I might as well enjoy it.
Sorry for boring you with my opinion. I have a habit of rambling. xD 
 
tiggerlemon101 says :   25 July 2010   553556  
@Breakthrough 
I'm against suicide cause it's the dumbest concept ever, really- for
the reasons you said and many others...
but this tends to ensue much anger from others, so I'm gonna drop it
there.
