One which I regret was believing my grandma was a witch. A pastor told my mum and dad that my grandma was a witch angry. This led to a quarrel between my parents and my grandma (whom my parents asked to leave the house and go back to the village) cry cry. I still remember how heartbroken my grandma was when parking her stuff out of the house. cry cry cry cry cry

Right now, she has diabetes and is suffering from leg pain. She is in the village. My uncle thinks she is a witch and doesn't even near her. Grandma, I love you cry

Cc. Proudgorgeousga

So Sad damn cry

Typical.

Deceiving myself that some spirit was making me speak in tongues when I was really just spitting random words vowel and consonant sounds. Chai. If I can have a video from the past I'll probably die from how cringy it is. Screaming along with everyone else hoping that some invisible daddy who created the universe is there appreciating my screams and wails. Lol

I get your point but there is a verse in bible that says we should be wise like serpent but be harmless as dove. I think God also wants us to approach our daily activities intelligently.

Still, Thomas was derided for seeking evidence in the same Bible.

Well, personally I feel you don't have to pay your 10% to your immediate church all the time provided it's an already established one. There are some churches with almost no chairs, you can pay to their account. Giving is an attitude.

I had my pastor anoint my phone displaying one of my graphic designs I was expecting to be a hit.
I set up my closet as my war room for prayers to gain admission study computer engineering in the university.

Sowed my last card N1000 one Sunday expecting a miracle that never came.

I regret doing all these things and more.

To my knowledge, mostly through fasting and prayers. The more you get closer to God, the more revelation you will have.

Those ones are just wicked. Being a good christian is an attitude/character. Like "No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house" Whatever you are made of will be revealed in your actions and attitude to others. Fake pastors can't be hidden. Shows in their preaching, what they endorse, their lifestyle and the rest. Be the christian you wish to see in others. Change begins with you. smiley

through out the history of man, there have never been a verified case of prayer and faith healing cancer, hiv or restoring an amputee. Never has the dead been raised. Why is that?
Re: Ex-christians Now Atheists, What Was The Craziest Thing You Did Out Of Faith? by Ayo001: 11:28pm On Sep 11
I'm not here to argue with you. Just because someone says he's a christian doesn't mean he really is. If their attitude does not portray that of Christ, such fellow is not genuinely one. Jesus already said you shall know them by their fruit. And if those people are not following the teaching of Christ the right way, nothing stops you from being the good christian you wish to see in others. If you can't do that, you have no right to judge them because you yourself know what is right but not doing it.

Wrote 'Mohammed is a liar. Only Jesus saves' on a cardboard sheet, went into the biggest mosque in town, went up front and held it up. I was waiting to be slashed with a machete. I had made up my mind to be a martyr that day. Instead, all the moslems in the mosque ignored me. Held up the sign for like 5 minutes, then said to myself 'u are not dying today' and got the fvck out of dodge.

chastity and i'd go to church as early as 5am in the morning, on saturdays i'd go home as late as 8 - 10pm. I literally live in the church, went to the seminary [had crazy thoughts of being a catholic priest] though i like that i went to the seminary, it reformed me.

I lived with a priest for years, never fasted though i had a slim figure so i no fit fast join my lepkanes.

said 20 decades of rosary almost everyday, i still like that prayer though, it's meditative and profound. I don't appreciate the banging and shouting of new age unorthodox pentecostal christianity.

And i'd récite the prayers of the angel of fatima every day

"My God i believe, i adore, i love. And i ask your pardon for those who do not believe, who do not adore or do not love"
U actually went to d seminary!!Wow.. . .little wonder ur tots n write ups r always so deep n profound. .

Am a Catholic too, yes I still identify as one grin..I Neva made it to d seminary bt I came pretty close. .Many people in my parish den actually had a one on one talk with me about going to d seminary Bt by some chance of events I Neva did make it dere ..

I still tink Abt ma Christian days wit overwhelming nostalgia.. Sometimes I find it hard to believe dt me dt used to believe so strongly in ma faith as a Catholic n a Christian laugh at same tins I used to do wen I see some pple doin dem 2day grin
I Neva prayed 20decades like u Boss.. Only on 1st Saturday adorations bt I prayed 5decades everyday wit divine mercy prayers at 3pm.. .used to pray 3hrly 6am, 9am, 12noon (angelus) ,3pm divine mercy n rosary, 6pm angelus, den nyt prayers after returning from Block Rosary. . grin..
i went to church every oda day except on Thursdays,i was a member of all d major societies n ministries in d church except d choir.. Let's jst say ma voice isnt one to die 4!! grin

Neva was in2 mornin masses ,I too like sleep grin
Bt Evenin masses.. U can bet ur life savings I'll b dere. .I clean up d Marian grotto n spent hours praying both written n unwritten prayers.. grin..


I swear anytime I think bak at doz days tears sort of well up in ma eyes.. I truly believed in Wat I was doing den... Sometimes I wish I Neva rily discovered d truth n jst stayed a devout Catholic. . grin

Believing that "God" is imaginary has made me more confident, aware and more in control of what happens to me. Whenever am faced with a challenge, I seek practical and/or professional solutions to it and receive immediate feedback and/or solutions, that aid further decision making. I do not go on my kneels and pray myself to stupor and wait a thousand years for faith to work.
This is the real world. We make opportunities and not pray for them to come.
