Okay, sure I'll join.

As far as denomination, I'm Church of Christ. The label doesn't mean much to me personally, though.

I'm not a Christian, so obviously can't join. But I find religious discussions to be almost always beneficial. Especially in today's day and age.

I would not post, but will be keeping up with what is said in this thread if God wills.

But you do believe in God? So if you do believe in Him, you can of course join!

Ok you're added. And yeah, I'm Catholic cos my parents decided; but still I don't always 100% agree with it, e.g. that priests can't get married. But still I don't like the Protestant church; just only Catholic.

Haha I was also surprised nothing was made yet. xD

Everything is updated! And new question;

What do you think of the Vatican?
Myself I think they just need to shut up with their condom things and stuff; cos that just doesnt make any sense. For the rest, I think they're ok.

Edit: lol, this is post Nr 6699999! xD

Hi, I'm a christian, and I am very proud of it! I would like to join as well!

I am a baptist.

And I'm also competing in the Bible bee. It's like a spelling bee, but you have to memorize 500 verses, and get tested on the book of 1 Peter. It's so much fun!

The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.
Exodus 14:14

If that's the criterion for joining, I'll be more than willing to join. No point missing out on religion.

However, just the mere belief in God doesn't make someone a Christian now does it? I believe in God, and I believe in the fact that a man by the name of Jesus (peace be upon him) came to Nazareth as a messenger from God to show them the straight path. As far as Im concerned though, to be a Christian you have to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior i.e. that he died for our sins. I don't believe that. If you're still willing to take me in, I will of course join.

From what I get out of your words you do believe in God only you don't believe that Jesus died to save us. Well, if that is, you can join I guess. I was first like that too; I didn't know what was the truth. But now I believe in God with everything I got :D

Really? :o But still if it was why would there be so many people who play pokémon believe in God; I mean just look at the SPPf Christian Alliance, there are thousands of posts there and hundreds of members. xD I think your pastor had it wrong this time.

And I'll update the Member section later when I get time.

What do you think of the Vatican?

As I am not very familiar with differences between different sects of christianity, I am not sure what the people over there talk abt . What I do think abt it tho is that the pope has some wierd laws. Why shouldn't priests marry? Peter (the first pope?) married...

I'm a Christian.

I believe:
- the bible is the inspired word of God.
- in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as one God.
- if you truly seek Jesus with all your heart he will reveal himself to you.
- in the Gifts of the Spirit.
- that Jesus died and rose physically.
- that through Jesus I can have relationship with God.

Sounds like he needs to read 1 Corinthians 10:23:
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.[NKJV]

As long as it does not take your attention off Christ leading you to drift away you're fine. That is unless the Holy Spirit specifically tells you not to be involved with such things.

I'm Roman Catholic over here!
I'd love to join this club :D
My family attends church once a week, at whatever time we can. Sometimes it is 7:30 on Sunday, others 4:00, 5:00, or 6:00 Saturday/Sunday, just depending on when we don't have anything conflicting.

I am not Christian, but I do enjoy Religious Debate. I don't want to join, but I might keep an eye on the thread if I get bored. I don't bash on Christians, but I WOULD like to have debates/discussion. Feel free to say no and I will go away.

It is not my right to question your salvation, but does this mean that you personally accepted Jesus Christ into your life as soon as you left your mothers womb?

You're either a Christian or not a Christian, there aren’t different types.

Non-denominational Christian who prefers to go by the values set forth by the reformers themselves rather than any set by modern churches. Of course I'd like to join!

Anyway, I've been raised as a Christian my entire life, went through the whole doubt period at a rather early age (10-11, as opposed to the usual 14+). Been through a lot of "little miracles" myself, causing my faith to be that much stronger in our Lord and Savior ~

Like this dude said.
But I live with my GRANDparents, since my mom made some bad choices.
& I can't remember ever doubting the existence of God...
