Default Re: Christians

Not been christened, never been brought up to believe. Only started going to church about 6 months ago. Sort of yes and sort of no. I get on well with the people at church and they are kind and welcoming and iits important to me but they say it smore than going to church you need to "make a commitment". They don't pressure me at all but don't reckon I am what they call a Christian yet.

Then are you going to church to meet nice people? Or because you do believe in something?

I guess it sounds a bit like it....but its not.
Yes they are nice people and that encourages me to go but its more than that.
Most weeks i can say the creed" i believe in God the Father..." as i believe it.
Sometimes i am not so sure. My dad thinks its a phase that is good for me and will grow out of and most people at school dont believe any of it either so sometimes its tough to know what to think.
I think it must be easier to grow up in a Christian family and work out for yourself how far you want to go with it but for me its all new and a bit like everything in a package......all or nothing.
So i pray and sometimes read my Bible and though it may have been a coincidence some of my prayers seem to have been answered so really think there is something in it.
It also helps me get things more right than wrong which maybe is a miracle by itself.
So i guess lots of people would say i am a Christian and thats fine by me but....but my church says you need to make a definite decision to follow Jesus and that means he is the boss of your life and he gets to call the shots and have to check out everything with the Bible etc.....and the Lords prayer says forgive us as we forgive other people and i still can't forgive my birth dad so maybe cant be a proper Christian.
So thats why i said i wasn't sure.
Guess this is too long and not sure it makes sense but its the
kind of messy truth.
