I feel its time i make this post as a way to bring the community together. there's only one way for me to do this an its to be brutally honest.

I was raised christian, my grandfather a reverend. so i know as well as anyone the ins and outs of church. from a young age, maybe 7 or 8 i started to have a skeptical streak. i noticed the way people would change away from church, i realized certain things in scripture that just made no sense. i was told to just accept them on faith, and for a while, till i was 17 and chose to be baptized for the first time with my best friend who i had brought into the faith. when i came out of that water and looked at the faces of the church congregation,the pastor, and my best friend in my whole life and realized that it was a lie.

now i don't need the bible to know that lying is bad, my parents taught me this. and life taught me this even harder. but what had become the lie? was the lie that i believed because i wanted to be saved? or because i wanted to please my family, my friends and community? when i became an adult my parents no longer pressured me to attend church. and im very fortunate that they have been so accepting of me still and we will discuss faith and argue over the subject. it doesn't stop my love for them. i understand their concern, after all they want to see all of their children go to heaven, what loving parent wouldn't.

i understand most of this community is christian faith based, and you want to believe that our nation is a christian one, but the founding fathers knew specifically that religion was always a contention amongst those who seek freedoms and rights from our constitution, "The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. " our country is not a christian one, but made up of all religions and non belief. all men made equally by "their" creator. means you have the right to believe what you want. the bible sure does espouse moral truth, but its not the only one. and its not perfect. non of them are. divinely inspired or not. i trust that most of you wouldn't just murder me for being atheist because god prevents you. you know that its bad because that's what it is.

for the final part, we all know the deep state is bad, we can all see it, Q has made it clear this is a world wide movement, its not about religion, its not about skin color, its about TRUTH. i just hope you walk away from reading this with the outlook that amongst you are people who may feel jaded, outcasts, not welcome, or straight up discriminated against. but still have faith in the plan, still want truth and still want to stop the lies and the bad things that happen. i know you all are looking forward to Christs return, looking forward to the afterlife, i would love to see my brother again, but i have to accept that it may never be a possibility, even if i am perfect in every way. i'm going to do my best to make this world what my brother talked about, and Jesus talked about. not because i believe he was gods son, or that his sacrifice was for me. but because he was good. good wins.

thank you.

Good deeds do not get you a place in heaven. Only believing that Jesus was the Son of God and he died for our sins in the only way to heaven.
Please youtube Ron Wyatt and the Ark of the Covenant. Ron found the ark of the Covenant which Jeremiah hid 600 years prior to Jesus's death. It was found 20 ft below where Jesus was crusified. There was an earthquake right after he died, which opened up a huge crack in the earth and when the centurion pierced his side and his blood ran down the crack and on to the ark of the covenant. The priest use to sprinkle animal blood on one side of the ark once a year to have people's sins forgiven. Our Savior's blood ran down than crack in the earth after an earthquake and hit the other side of the ark which had been hidden for 600 years exactly 20 feet below where he was crusified. Ron had the blood analyzed. The blood should have been dead. It was 2000 year old dried blood. When they analyzed the blood it only had 24 chromosomes. Which we all have 46 chromosomes. 23 from your mother 23 from your father. This blood had 23 from the mother and only 1 Y chromosome from the Father. The scientist said it was not a human father. The significance of this is huge! There are no coincidences! I am praying for you my friend! Please watch this short clip of Ron Wyatt telling people about Jesus's blood analysis.

Demands we believe but offers no evidence. Doesn't judge people based on their deeds. Are you sure you're worshipping a good guy here? Seems like a really dirty trick.

Jesus was supposedly here once, so we know it's ok for him to come around. A weekly appearance would be a big help if he cared at all about saving people!

“but the founding fathers knew specifically that religion was always a contention amongst those who seek freedoms and rights from our constitution, "The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. " our country is not a christian one, but made up of all religions and non belief. all men made equally by "their" creator. means you have the right to believe what you want. the bible sure does espouse moral truth, but its not the only one. and its not perfect. non of them are.”

The reason for not making the church and state one and the same was to prevent the government from telling Christians how to worship. In England the king was also the head of the church. People coming to America wanted the freedom to worship on their own terms. The early settlers of America were Christian. It was not building a pantheistic paradise of Buddhists and Hindus and Christians in America. The Founders were actually very clear about their dislike of Islam and it’s incompatibility with American ideas. They never would have allowed them to immigrate. The ideas of America come from Christianity.

Islam is a political religion that requires you to submit or be executed. Today this is what Islam produced today: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/04/tunisia-mother-explodes-herself-and-her-baby-in-jihad-suicide-attack

Around the world Christians are often kidnapped, raped, and slaughtered by Islamists. It happens frequently in Africa. Whole villages.

All religions are Not the same. They do not believe the same things or produce the same cultures or morality.

The Bible is the one that provides the Way, the Truth, and the Life. This nation was blessed when it followed that collectively and individually.

“now i don't need the bible to know that lying is bad, my parents taught me this”

Your parents are Christians and taught you that and they learned it from the Bible.

The Bible is not a book for moral living, it’s a record of history that invites one into a relationship with the Creator God. While the human condition is broken, God wasn’t just interested in helping us right that, but wished to commune with His creation again that rejected Him. The morality of God is reflection of the character of God. If you like His attributes than that should lend to a respect and even worship of the Source, God Himself.

Being a Christian reflects the character of God to respect personal dignity and free will, that is why as long as non-Christians aren’t harming us we generally respect their choices of beliefs even if we disagree with them. That is why atheists and even other religions can exist around us. However that is breaking down in America now, because non-Christians (secularists, Islamists, etc) do not value traditional American culture or politics that stems from Godly ideas. When Christian ideas become the minority, you have situations like girls being kidnapped in Sweden or Africa.

God is real. Have you ever tried praying. Sincerely praying?

my contention isnt really with the idea of god, so much as the bible. and any other religious text. i cant prove god exists. i dont deny that it can, i dont claim to know its name or its ways, i just know that its not anything humans have ever thought of. at that point why bother pleasing it, or asking it for forgiveness. i just want to do good, and i hope that whatever higher power is out there, wants the same thing. my prayers go out constantly. for direction, for truth, for my loved ones to be safe and for people to try to understand the darkness we live in.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make. So you don't believe. Okay. Lots of people don't believe. Why is that worthy of a lengthy post. Are you sure you're not trying to be persuaded? Regardless, If Jesus was good, as you say, then He wouldn't lie and Jesus asserted His deity many times. Read the Gospel of John. Just one example is the famous John 3:16. "For in such manner did God love the world, insomuch that His Son, the uniquely begotten One, He gave, in order that everyone who places his trust in Him may not perish but may be having life eternal."

Jesus said that. About Himself. Either He was telling the truth, lying, or was a lunatic. Which one is it? You can find out very easily by humbling yourself and saying a simple prayer like this, "God, I don't even believe you exist. But if you do exist, I want to know the truth. If you really do exist, please reveal yourself to me."

As long as you are sincere, and not mocking or flippant, and you say something along those lines, that is literally all it takes to get your answer.

Are you ready for the ultimate red pill?

I was raised without religion. With time I prayed as you indicated above. I got answered fairly quickly, with signs and evidence. But proof and personal revelation took over ten years.

I've come to understand the Bible to be true, but easily misunderstood. Sometimes dangerously misinterpreted, like Saul of Tarsus murderously, zealously, dangerous.

Fuck it. You're thinking about it too hard.

Find the people you vibe with within the anonymous bunch. Thats all.

You can't change anyone, you can only change yourself.

Q has many connections to Christianity. It simply cannot be divorced. You either accept this fact, or you struggle with it.

My advice: Let it be, and observe.

Our fight is one and failure is not an option. What we leave behind our loved ones will have to live with and under.

Thanks for the post. I never go to church anymore, never been baptized. But I’m convinced Jesus existed and had complete faith he was the Son of God. If he didn’t he would not have gone through what he did in his life and his execution. I almost let people who claim to be Christian steal my faith from me. What they did, the way they treated me was very out of line with what they professed to believe.

I chose to make my faith a private matter and live it externally without talking about it. The only time I make a public statement of faith is when someone asks me how I manage to stay positive regardless of what is happening in my life. Or when someone makes fun of people of faith. In both cases people are surprised to hear my perspective on faith in Jesus.

Having said that, it isn’t my place to force my beliefs on others. Anyone who lives as Jesus taught, regardless of personal beliefs gets my respect. Same goes for anyone trusting the plan and wanting to see the NWO-DS brought down.Jst because your personal faith doesn’t match mine does not caus me to reject you.

This is the second time where I have recently thought about Mark 9:38-41

“Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.” “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, for whoever is not against us is for us. Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.“

Just reading through your post, and then the replies, illustrates the diversity among us - but that doesn’t mean we are not the same, or that one is better than another. As someone who 50 years ago accepted Who Jesus said He is, and what He says He did for me, I need to say that I honestly don’t give any more credence or credibility to what one person here thinks/feels/says over another based on their “religion”. The majority of the time I don’t pay attention to who posted what - I am here for knowledge, not to compare “religious” beliefs. I believe I have a relationship with a higher power or intelligence that I know as “God”. That said, it’s nice to find like-minded people here, but my Faith isn’t why I’m here. I’m here because I want to be aware and awake about what is happening in our world. Do I believe there is a plan that is influenced by this “higher power”? Of course I do, but I believe that about everything else in my life as well. It is part of my life experience and who I’ve been for the past 50 years. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I don’t think any of us has to make judgments here about what anybody thinks or feels based on their perceived “religious” leanings, but you are doing exactly that and whether you mean to or not, it comes across as an attack. On the one hand it seems you are saying you feel judged simply because you don’t believe, while on the other you decree that (in your opinion) “Christianity” (specifically) is all a lie, and you lecture us about the beliefs of the founding fathers and proclaim that America was never a Christian nation. So who is being judgmental? I disagree with those who have tried to persuade you that your beliefs are wrong - even your family members. They should not be trying to convince you of a Truth you don’t want to even consider. What I would say is this - just as you would not be judged because you don’t believe, extend the same courtesy to those of us who do. We are united here in a common quest for America and our world. We all come from different backgrounds and belief systems and if we are being honest about our quest to be free, that absolutely includes affording each one here the freedom to express (or not) their own belief about God, Who He is, why Jesus came and how much that plays into what is happening in our world today. I think what stands in your way is not God Himself, Jesus Christ and His claims, or even the Bible’s validity. What stands in your way is an attitude that says if you don’t understand it, it’s automatically bad. That closed mind is what the enemy will continue to use to keep you from being really free. In the end, the Truth will come out. What will Believers have lost if we are wrong? What will non-believers have lost if we are not wrong?

I'm so sorry you lost your brother. I know that has to be such a rough thing to deal with. <3

Your post really laid on my heart. As everything unfolds, I hope you find the truth that brings you the most comfort.

God has revealed a lot of things to me about the Bible that I didn't know. If you wanted to discuss it, my username is the same on Telegram if you wanted to look me up. <3
