  • Hello

    Hi Everyone
    I'm Erica, a southern Georgia girl who has a very small and very new business. I was raised in the church and went to a Christian school but I wasn't truly saved until Jan of 2015 when I left New Age beliefs in the rear view in a hurry.
    I'm not entirely new to Christianity, I had the head knowledge and basics growing up but as I grow now, in true faith and love, I'm really looking forward to getting to know new brothers and sisters, enjoying conversation and even the moments of iron sharpening iron.

          Welcome to the forum, Tuesday ! I live in Alabama, so not a long ways from Georgia. I have been a Christian all of my life; but lately, I have been trying hard to re-study some of the things we were taught in church, that I didn't really understand all that well, like the endtime prophecies.
          I just noticed that you have started some posts about that same topic, and I will see if I can contribute anything, and also maybe learn a bit more about how other people understand these seemingly obscurely worded messages.

            Hi!

            Thank you so much for writing to me. I was raised in the church and also went to a Christian school for a few years in high school but while I had knowledge of it all I never really accepted until my early 30's

            I came out of the new age movement (much to my surprise upon research that I'd even fallen into it) and I became a fully born again at that point in time. I was so upset by just how easily deceived I was even though I'd been raised and taught the bible. The Spirit, since being born again and justified, continues to work in me and God is faithfully gentle and loving as I read the scriptures with "fresh eyes" if you will.

            This has lead me to really study, go deeper and to question things that needed further answers. I've found that, while I respect so many pastors and elders and teachers, that a few things just didn't seem to add up for me. So I'm letting God lead me in scripture and really really reflecting on it. I don't always come to the same "worldly" conclusion.

            I saw your post on the sun vs earth rotation and I'm fairly certain we could very well have further things to discuss which I would love. I have found myself leaning more and more on geocentricity (just one example of what I'm reading and learning about) which is something I never expected...but...it just gels. So I'd love to hear more about the things you're reexamining of you'd ever like to share :)

              Hi Tuesday, WELCOME TO CF :) Mine is a similar story to yours. I was baptized as an infant, regularly attended church and Sunday School until college, and always believed myself a Christian (until the day I finally became one that is, at age 30).

              Looking forward to getting to know you and growing in Christ together with you.

              God bless you! (Numbers 6:24-26)
