Golden, all i want to do is pray... Wherever you are, watch out and see the turn around in your life. I'm not perfect at all. But i believe there can be a change.

I usually come here to write when I think..
.. what do you guys do in bad times.

I'm currently feeling down.. life wise..

It pains me that I don't have someone somewhere I believe I am talking to, and who I can receive comfort from..
It also pains me I cannot really have the serious conversation with my parents.. the other day, I was thinking how I'll eventually tell my yoruba mother I probably won't be marrying in a church.. lol.. still looks so unreal to me..cannot imagine how I'll tell her that.


.. I don't really see the point being honest at school... The thing is at the end of the day we are social animals, and we need people.. and people have preferences.. if you and a believer are equally qualified for a job, we are automatically disadvantaged for that opportunity..

Swing as I'm someone who fundamentally understands I have one life, and I'm not necessarily inclined to ruin it before it begins, I don't see the point putting myself at a disadvantage.. sorry but if I have to lie to my blood family, why shouldn't I do that to anyone else?..it's not like I believe in anyone that teaches all lie is bad, no matter the situation.
I'm always quick to throw away suicide too.. I can't even break even.. lol.. to where ..nothing??.. that's a loss to me..I'll just be throwing away whichever opportunity I have to actually make it..
.. how do you see your future.. do you see yourselves raising kids in Nigeria?..
If you have any advice for me please share..
Christians, I don't want to see any bible verse unless you begin with an explanation to
Exodus 12:29
Exodus 32:26-28
Numbers 16:49
1kings 20:35..
...lol.. ohh, you have an explanation?

Please download drunk with blood and start documenting your explanation. There are literally over 150 seperate events of god assuring murders, or committing them himself.. it's going to be a long night..

...the power of personal experience is very mad .. people believe their situation was turned around by a spirit, and automatically turn a blind eye to all the evil it also allegedly did. Wow.

Yet you would expect thatarket woman to not vote the politician who gave her a bag of rice. Leeemaoooo.

..didn't read this again for fear I wouldn't post eventually.. peace.
Do you have a diary? If not, use this downtime to consider cultivating the habit of writing your thoughts and daily issues down in a book somewhere. That way, when you go back and read sometime later, you can be reminded of the errors of your past so you not make them again.

Also, try to consider accepting yourself for who you are regardless of what people/family thinks of you. You will have less "badtimes" that way too.

As for life, you still have school and parents...wait till you move in fulltime into the real deal and if you still comeback attacking Christians for their beliefs even then, then you have officially become a loser for life. undecided

Rather than looking for folks to attack /putdown when you are depressed, please try to channel your energy instead into maybe self-reflection or improvement. Something to make you seem less like the same breed of people you complain about here. undecided

This, is one of the best I've read from you yet, and I am very impressed.

Personally, I'd tell op to go find God (I doubt he'd get the irony of that coming from buda), and it sounds like he thinks he's done that already, though the text he says Christians should explain show he definitely does not know about the Gods at all and thinks he need not know about the Gods at all though he does contradict himself some when he says, "if you and a believer are equally qualified for a job, we are automatically disadvantaged for that opportunity", but he "don't see the point putting myself at a disadvantage", so why not just lie that you believe, op? Though do they ask about your beliefs at job interviews these days? And what job are you looking for if you are still at school? Are you just saying what you believe and have zero experience to back up your claim?

I think you got a lot of learning to do op, but you unfortunately think you already know enough though you very obviously do not. And I am afraid you will suffer until you begin to learn.

Regarding the verses you mentioned.

Since you are not God, I'll disobey you and quote from Luke 4 and hope you are intelligent enough to wonder.

"It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve”' and not the text you do not understand but just read in a book!

All the alleged Genocides in the bible God commanded.

Are you sure you don't mean, "All the Genocides in the bible God allegedly commanded"?
Re: For Atheists. by MozB: 3:03am On Mar 23, 2021
If you dont mind, we can talk on phone. 09054285264. That is my number. You can drop yours if you want me to do the calling. I dropped mine for you to call because not everybody love to drop their numbers in public spaces, i usually dont drop mine as well but i'm breaking my protocols because i really want to talk to you. Its not about criticism or arguments.. I'm not here to do that. I'm only here because i sincerely care about you.

I am certain you know all the other answers leading to my present answer which is, surely you do know that in Every Challenge of Might and Power, the Winner is the One who Crushes his Challenger, right?

Therefore, crushing first born sons is even kindness, for if it was me, when I fight a challenger I desire to crush him utterly!

Golden6:

Exodus 32:26-28

The Explanation starts from verse 7
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, HAVE CORRUPTED THEMSELVES:

8 THEY HAVE TURNED ASIDE QUICKLY OUT OF THE WAY WHICH I COMMANDED THEM: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, AND SAID, THESE BE THY GODS, O ISRAEL, WHICH HAVE BROUGHT THEE UP OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.


Surely you must know The Fury of when a certain person transferred your due to another person and in this case, it was not even another person but a certain iron chair.

So I ask, would you be peaceful if a chair is raised up and proclaimed to be better than you by a person who you saved from trouble eg giving a job to certain person who then expressly declates in your face that you did nothing but that it was the chair a carpenter made which gave him the job? angry

Golden6:

Numbers 16:49

Starts from Verse 1, particularly verses 2 & 3 "250 People (an event centre of Big people like Tinubu, Buhari, Lie Mu!) gathered themselves together AGAINST MOSES.

They Made Pharaoh's Mistake!

Golden6:

1kings 20:35...

As the Centurion said to The Lord "I am a man Under Authority! I say to one, Go! and he goes and to another, Come! And he comes "

Woe to him that does not hearken to The Word of Authority for the Smited Prophet had informed the prophet that it Was The Word of The Lord, but he disobeyed and did not listen!

Words come to us and we write them down. We think they are our words, saying with them what we mean them to say to whosoever we throw them out to, but then we read the words we wrote down and are like, 'did I write that?' 'That's not what I thought I was saying!' 'That was thrown out to me!'

I'd wonder if that ever happens to you, but since you "didn't re-read it.. just wanted to throw it out..", I guess you'd wouldn't know.

Someone advised you keep a diary. Its so you can hear your messages to yourself in a "my Lord said to my Lord" sort of way, but I doubt you will get it since it's a quoted verse.
