Can you imagine.

You did all this and some of these theists will say you lost ur faith cos you werent a proper Christian to begin with undecided

Well no Christian is ever a good Christian to another Christian. Even the guy on this thread is accusing other Christians of not been good christians - this problem is sort of inherent in Christendom.

My own was believing my mom was a witch because a stupid prophetess told me. I started fasting and praying for God to deliver the innocent woman. I even remember going to the mountain for 21days fasting and putting all my money in tithes and offering to an imaginary God but think you God that there is no God.

Faith and work go hand in hand. So many examples in the Bible. Like Joseph helped the people of Egypt saved food for rainy days. I think that was strategic planning. Free your heart.
obisco4u:



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.

My mumu was on point sha.

I attended lots of Go-a-fishing event, an evangelization
program by that criminal organization RCCG. Was a worker(asst. leader embarassed) of the media department. Had to set up most of the audio equipment and stuff.

My water baptism was another crazy one. Woke up one morning to go get soaked in someone's swimming pool.. Was expecting dove to land on my head so that I would speak in tongue.. For where....almost choked to death while speaking in bubbles.

Then that little matter of tithe also. Though I stopped that while I was still Christian.

Fasting for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Spent most of my data downloading messages of Oledepo, Adeboye and other annointed crooks of God. ADEBOYE is very boring, OYEDEPO has a way of saying nonsense in a smooth way (case in point - overheard during one miracle service 'Your fibroid will turn to fine boy')

Please. Forgive me my people. I once was really really stupid but now I can boldly declare.

No matter how hard you try to deny it or lie to yourselves, or how intelligent you see yourself to be... The truth you all know is GOD EXISTS.
I might have questions for you atheists, coz in as much as I respect your choice of faith, I am sure you all are deceiving yourselves...
1. Who created man? You probably believe the Big Bang theory, if that holds to be true then who orchestrated the mighty explosion and how come it has never happened again? Why are matters and energies not forming in our very own eyes today to create a world like ours.
2. You do not believe in miracles, how come the blind suddenly regain their sights after prayers or numerous other scientifically impossible cases? Cancer patients proclaimed terminal by doctors suddenly get healed miraculously Who is the doer of these great things?
3. If man was not created by God and the universe created man, then who created the universe?
4. So, the sun stands in the sky without falling down, knows when to let the moon come in, and stars sprawl over the vast black sky, and the rivers and oceans know just where to stop, and nature is so orderly and nobody made it so? It just happened
5. If really, the big bang theory is the plausible creation story, why did it not continue?
6. Humans have so many languages, where did they ever learn them? Something cannot emanate from nothing, so from whence did these various languages come from?
7. How and why do people die? Their hearts stop beating right, and then they don't suddenly explode? What happened to matter can neither be created nor destroyed?

No matter how hard you try to justify your claims, God is not dead. Its true there are many schisms in the church today and so many Christians don't live up to the name... That doesn't lay credence to the assumption that God doesn't exist.

Some of you have deep sitted traumatic experiences e.g the death of a loved one...and you think God does not exist because things did not go as you planned.
My conviction of God is not just based on my religious beliefs, I have a personal conviction that God lives, Jesus lives, the Holy spirit is true.

Now, go back to History, History tells us of A.D and B.C... After the Death of Christ and Before the Birth of Christ... The life activities of Jesus, his death, resurrection are recorded in history books order than the Bible. So those people were hallucinating too? Jesus did not come? Or simply his father God does not exist

You talk of many grey areas in the Bible. There is no book on earth that has no grey areas, most of the original documents of the Bible were lost or manhandled by the Catholic Church.

I'll pray for you, to know the light of truth before it is too late.

Mr. Man, one thing you should know is that making a case for a creator god is one thing and making a case that the creator god is the christian god is another thing entirely. Both require two sets of evidences. Let us assume the creator god exists, how do you know it's your god? The same set of evidences used to verify a creator god will be utilised by all religions. Evidences and common sense show that all religious gods are man-made.

How do you know in the first place that deep down our hearts we believe in god?

Well no Christian is ever a good Christian to another Christian. Even the guy on this thread is accusing other Christians of not been good christians - this problem is sort of inherent in Christendom.
That is why pretense and hypocrisy is rife in Christianity. An ultra, totalitarian standard of goodness is set up to which everyone must measure up to. Thing is no one quite measures up to it but everybody keeps trying to and expecting others to do same and this produces what I call the epidemic of righteousness where people are sick, spiritually and psychologically sick because of trying to meet up with an abstract, inhuman notion of goodness. It causes so much choking. This creates a deathly staleness in Christian circles, a kind of brass like coldness.

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

Craziest things:

1. Confessing my "sins" to a fellow human (a priest).

2. Fasting 6-12pm sometimes 6-6pm. Thank Goodness, I survived that. (Dry Fasting)

3. Celibacy: minimal association with the opposite sex cheesy (Chai, Na dis dey vex me pass) in order to achieve saint hood.

4. Donating offerings to be sent back to Rome for whatever reason. I didn't know then catholic church was the richest institution in the world. (oops!)

5. Going too vigil and wasting my time and sound sleep.


N.B. I love the coporal works of mercy. That's the only thing I don't regret. I also love block Rosary. It give me a perfect coverage to play with other kids as much as I wanted since my people no dey gree me waka as I like.
