Agnostic - 18 years
Christian - 17 years

Of those 17 years, the first 5 were spent as a Charismaniac (a fundy charismatic)


Just out of curiosity, are you a cessationist now?

If you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and you're not ashamed, put this in your signature.

What I learned that after Confirmation people dive sometimes, because there is an assumption that they know it all, whatever all is. Such a big mistake, when getting Holy Spirit at Confirmation, this is a perfect time to to really build up the faith...

I was an apathetic atheist growing up, with a small interest in Wicca that developed in high school. Became a Christian when I was 24 and joined a non-denominational charismatic church that I stayed at for 5 years. Over time I found myself having more and more theological disagreements with that church, so I sampled a few other denominations to see what they were about. I attended a Baptist church for about 2 years, but left there over disagreements as well. Finally I attended and joined the Catholic church and have been a devoted Catholic for almost 3 years now.

No. Very much so a Continuationist.

Just now, I'm just not so hung up on health, wealth, and chandelier-swinging.

Secular Childhood > Few short periods 'practicing' Islam, Christianity, and Shintoism (11-12) > Angstheist because of a direct rejection of Christianity > Interest in Taoism & practiced Buddhism, became a theist believing in a Tao-like entity > Became involved in the Baha'i Faith and absorbed some wisdom > Sorted out all of this knowledge & wisdom, and drew a conclusion to a sorta pantheistic God

Been an atheist my entire life. The greatest gift my parents ever gave me was not bringing me to church when I was younger. I like to think that because of this I never closed my mind to all the possibilities out there and I demand evidence for every world view.
