My name is J and I am 23. I recently graduated from a private Christian college with a degree in Mass Communications-Electronic Media, minor in marketing. I am working a part time job at a movie theater running booth projections for very little pay, but by night I am a video editor. Im hoping to pursue this full time in the very near future or at least something dealing with music or film- maybe in the field of promotions, seeing as its what I love to do. I have a three legged cat whom I rescued from outside and I have a LapShepHusky whom I adopted in 2009. I have a Godson, Jake. He is four years old. My uncle is a children's pastor for a non-denominational church. I am a HUGE movie fan and love music. I listen to a bit of everything but I mainly dig Tooth and Nail type bands. I am always up for talking and Id love to make some more friends. When I graduated high school I ditched my friends because of what they were into and when I graduated college I did the same thing. Now it is pretty much me and Tux.
I have a relationship with Christ.
This is who I am now. This is where I want to be.
Always looking for new friends in Christ- hit me up!
Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you,plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

tylerhey. i saw you forum on homosexual. i think anyone has a place in church. im not gonna sit here and say that your a sinner and all that bull crap but i will tell you a story from the bible. you may have heard this story before. but here it is. there used to be a city called Sodom and Gomorrah. what happened was. God burn this hole city down because of all the sin in it. one of the sins was homosexual.God was angry with this city. and all the sinners in that city. soo he burned it. and everyone in it. im sorry i dont have the verse. but you can find it on google. lol and heres something else you can cheek out.corinthians 3:10 threw to 6:14. i think you might find what your looking for. please let me know if this helped at all. and i love to study the bible too!!!!!! and its cool that you do CD reviews. have you ever done any on christian metal bands? like impending doom? or for today?
The only close friend I have from college is a pothead and only wants to hang out and drink. She always brings her boyfriend along which wouldnt bother me but hes the one that always wants to smoke weed. I need prayer for strength to remain strong during this time.
Original Prayer Request (posted 2 Years Ago): My moms best friends daughter has been having seizures out of nowhere. Shes blacked out a few times but the doctors cant seem to find anything wrong. Shes worried about driving and the rest of us are equally worried. Prayers needed.
I just wanted to ask any of you if you ever felt like you couldn't be the same person in all ares of your life. You may realize this from the way we communicate and act towards certain people: most of us tend to be a different person in some parts of our lives, almost like we wear a mask. This includes me; I am tired of wearing this mask. Some brothers and sisters have closer relationships with the family in Christ than natural family, who may not be walking with Christ and understand him or her.
I feel like I can only be myself when I am with my family in Christ. I try not to be, but I am a different person at home. As someone once told me,"Your family is the hardest people because they think they know you." I long to be the one He has created me to be with my family and other people, but I need to know how to take off this mask.
I've felt like this - and do at times. Mainly because I am in a very difficult situation. I was raised in the church. However, I have never felt like myself. I am a girl. I identify with boys. I don't consider myself gay; because I feel like I am in the wrong body. I know, it's probably hard for most to understand. It's impossible to explain. I struggle with my beliefs and faith... and who I am. I have never been with anyone. I have dated long distance. You only get one life so you need to love who you are. I keep going back and forth on whether to just stay by myself and do things that way - to honor God in that way.
I have never felt like I've needed anyone else. So I guess that's an option.
My family thinks I'm gay, however.
So yes, I understand. That mask is a hard obstacle to overcome.
Hey guys, I'm officially leaving Monday for training. I'll be going to the Air Force Special Operations Schoolhouse, Survival School, Ranger School, Army Airborne School, H.A.L.O., Sniper School, Air Assault School, Pathfinder, and Navy SEAL BUDs. It'll take about 2 years of training and then I'll be an active duty special forces soldier. Keep me in your prayers please! It was great talking with all of you and I'll try to come on here as much as I can.
Good luck in your future endeavors. I hope your training is everything you hoped it would be and that you come out a stronger person. I know you've got great things ahead of you and I look forward to hearing about how things turn out. Keep us updated!
I'm back again. Some of you may remember me from back when I was really active. I missed the community we had here so I decided to come back. Hope to get to know everyone again! God Bless!
If a Christian girl and non-Christian guy date, does it mean it's not going to work out? What could possible go wrong? There may be a little difference but what if they both are interested in other things?
If you're genuine in your beliefs, then you shouldn't be falling for someone with completely different ones. If your God is first, then you can't put someone else in that place. That's how I see it anyway. If you're against things that the person you're dating is in favor of, you will stumble. You won't be happy.
Alright so I discovered this website. The majority of the artists are Christian. All you do is put in your email. The artists themselves decide to throw their albums up for free download to get the word out about their music...or to self-promote. You can 'tip' them if you love the music and want to pay...but otherwise every download is free.
www.noisetrade.com << Albums change from time to time...but I just got Andy Minneo's Formerly Known and Pro's PSA Volume 2... good stuff! Highly recommend this website.
The Bible says homosexuality is wrong, so this topic is not to debate whether it is or not. This is to debate whether is should be legalized or not. The question is: Should Christians fight against the legalization of same sex marriages?
Yeah Thirst- I believe there are those who aren't but convince themselves they are...like the ones who go through that 'spell' in high school or college. Clearly it's not true. But what if you feel the same way from a very young age and none of it's changed? If we're made in His image, however, and you honestly can't help how you feel... then it's hard to believe you're not born a certain way. It's harder to understand when you aren't that way. People are born with mental disabilities. Can't say that was a choice. So what if there is something in the mentality of those of homosexual nature? What if there's a chemical imbalance they're born with that causes them to think a certain way? Can't say it's impossible. And if this is so- then is it a choice...?? No. It's not.
Lately I've been having an issue with praying. I love God with all my heart and would die for Jesus' name without hesitation. I read my Word, know my Word and try my best to live by it. I really don't have any Christian friends whatsoever so I come here and sometimes Facebook to talk to Christians but without the computer, all I have is my Bible. Whenever I pray, I feel I'm just talking to myself. I KNOW God is real, I love Him with all that I am and I can't even express how much I want to have a strong relationship with Him, but prayer just doesn't work for me. I never pray for myself, only others, and still nothing has been working lately. Besides my prayers being denied or just not answered at the time I want, I feel I lost connection with God. I don't feel anything when I pray anymore and it's like He's not there even though I know He is. I feel like such a fool for writing this as I don't normally talk about things like this on here but since I have no other Christians to talk to, I thought maybe someone on here could help. Thanks in advanced for any replies or advice.
I definitely have no Christian friends here- so i get exactly where you're coming from. It is hard to surrender your needs when you feel you have no one to surrender them to. I've been distanced myself, personally..for a lot of reasons. Working on trying to get my way back. It's not always easy believing what you believe... especially since everyone believes in certain things... what one likes, the other doesn't. I need to get back into praying... get rid of things that distract me. I'll be praying for you too, man.
Just saw this shirt on C28 and wanted to know what you guys thought about it:
Maybe I'm looking too far into this, but it seems kind of irreverent. It kind of reminds me of these types of shirts (mentioned in a blog post by the awesome Ephraim Clothing:
