Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

It happened when I was young. I was in middle school, I think. My memories of my youth are faded and patchy at best but what I can recall tells me I was somewhere around middle school age. We moved in with my mother's good friend and he became our step-father, if not in the legal sense but for all ...

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

I'm not angry at God. What's He ever done to me? People may have mislead me when it comes to religion, but even then they're just as misguided as I was, so I don't get too upset at them either. The crucifixion story never made sense to me even when I was a Christian. It's not justice to punish some...

Mormonism

As a somewhat new Christian, I have heard so much about the varying denominations in the church, but Mormonism is one that I have little to no knowledge about. I was wondering if there is anyone here who is Mormon that could explain their beliefs and how we can believe those beliefs above other deno...

Re: Wanted to introduce myself

Welcome to the site! I've been around for a few years, but am just recently starting to write reviews for the site. Likewise, I am also a senior and enjoy watching anime on a casual basis. I took the time to read some of the posts on your blog, and am impressed. Looking forward to reading some of y...

Re: Wanted to introduce myself

Hey there! I too am a high school senior, but I live in Texas. Since you introduced yourself by your real name, then I guess I will too. :) My real name is Emory Walker (Emwok is a sort of abbreviation). I'm in the scouting program (though not for much longer), so I love hiking, camping and the lik...

Re: Spiritual Gifts

I love this subject! So glad someone brought it up! Something to know is that some spiritual gifts have passed away, such as healings and speaking and interpreting tongues and some others, Paul tells us this in 1st Corinthians, we do not need those gifts because they were used to show others that G...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

I'd like to throw a small aside in here if possible. I think that a lot of the arguments related to cultural issues have been driven by art such as film, TV, books, and music. I was watching some videos on the topic when I found one that summed up my feelings on arts driving culture. https://youtu....

Re: Spiritual Gifts

What about personal experiences? Personal experiences definitely are allowed! I just didn't want someone to say, "Well spiritual gifts don't exist because I feel like they aren't real," or other wishy-washy arguments like that. You can read more about it here, if you'd like. Do you have any sources...

Re: Spiritual Gifts

We all have different spiritual gifts though talking in tongues isn't really practiced at my church. I am good with kids and have been serving as an Awana leader for 5 years now. I also consider this site a ministry and feel that it's been blessed by God as well. Yes I definitely understand those t...

Spiritual Gifts

I wanted to leave this discussion as open-ended as I possibly could, so I don't want to insert a large blog of scriptures and text just yet! Anyways, one topic that has driven me crazy lately has been the spiritual gifts that are talked about in the New Testament: speaking in tongues, interpreting t...

Re: Tony Campolo and Homosexuality

I actually have some homosexual friends, one in particular who has overcome his sinful lifestyle who attends my local church, so I am not completely ignorant in this subject. Honestly, I feel that homosexuality is the same as every other sin and should be treated as such. Of course people do not hav...

Wanted to introduce myself

Hey guys! So in case you have not met me before (I have only been here a day now so I doubt anyone has), my name is Micah Marshall, also known on the internet as neighborhoodotaku, and I am a high school senior in Knoxville, Tennessee. Among other things, I have recently joined the staff and writing...
