Hey everyone. Some of you already knew that I was going through a dark time of questioning and was even an agnostic for a while. After really thinking about what I do know and having some providential things happen, I would like to say that I am a Christian and will remain that way. Thank you all for praying for me.

I spoke with my priest and he said that since I didn't join another religion that I need to come to confession and don't need to be rechrismated. I will do that soon.

Awesome news! I thank God for your decision. I just want you to know that there will probably be future challenges to your faith, but I have found them easier and easier to defeat, I pray you do to.

I hope (and believe) you will find that your time of difficulty has given you more strength and confidence in God.

Real faith begins when it is tested. Questioning can be very good and healthy in my experience. God wants us to know him and love him ever more deeply and confidently and that often comes about through some forms of suffering or dark night of the soul.

I KNEW somebody would make the false assumption that the fourth item was directly connected to the first. :glare:

When I cook Chicken Diablo, there's bacon all around, and nobody thinks bacon comes from CHICKEN! :rant::mob::rant:

You didn't just kill the chicken - you just killed the calf and the first meat you mention is bacon, not beef. :tongue:


Now you know we really love you, TSN - we're derailing your thread! :hug:

And here I thought that the reason he wouldn't dissect that frog in Mrs. Tottlemyer's biology class was because he was just being squeamish.

I can only have two pieces of bacon. Any more and my BP will skyrocket. ;)

I only eat two pieces of bacon too. The first one and the last one. The ones in between just seem to jump into my belly on their own.
