Hello everyone, My name is Ronda and I am new around here, it looks promising though. I am not at all a seasoned chat roomer, if that tells you anything, but one night I was up late and didnt have anyone to talk to. I have a myspace account, and use it to keep in touch with some old highschool freinds that have moved out of the state. So I went to see if anyone else was up as late as I was and saw that no one was, down the side of my page I noticed a community bar with different options, and decided to check out the chat room button. Now Im not so uneducated about the internet to know that there are some bad things that go along with chat rooms, but it was topical so I selected religion, and Christian. I was hoping to go into a room and meet brothers and sisters in the body of Christ, and fellowship, but what i saw was terrible. there where a lot of people there for one thing, so it was hard to follow, but the general ambiance of the place was not what I expected, there was horrible language, disgusting conversations about private parts, blasphemous talk about the Holy Spirit, and everyone but just a few of the 30-40 people where trying to discredit the existence of God. What are these people doing here? was one of my biggest questions, I found myself conflicted what am I doing here? this obviously isnt where I belong, or is it? What could I do, if anything to change the mood of the room and possibly share some light in all of that darkness. I began to speak boldly of how disparaging the conversation was, then to tell everyone of what God has done for me, I gave my testimony and prayed for all of the people in the room, thats kinda the short version, but it left me feeling insufficient, and also opened my eyes to the Myspace majority's thoughts on God. I stayed up even later that night just praying for God to show me what to do, and to help all who went into that Christian chat room. The next day a thought popped into my head. If perhaps a few or more true believers went into that room together and where unified in there objectives of sharing the message of Jesus then maybe there would be a change of the sort of people that go in to the chat room, if people went there seeking answers then they would find them, if people went there hurting they could find comfort, and the people who went there to deliberately sabotage and destroy the peace of the place, talking smack about God or just trying to make everyone angry by typing various names of certain private parts over and over and over again, (just trying to prepare you for the worst, not that that truly touches on what is there but im sure you get the picture) will get discouraged and leave or maybe, just maybe get real and ask the right questions. I hope that those of you who read this who are members of the body will consider standing in a united front for Jesus, but I wouldn't ask anyone who wasn't sure about the Bible, as a matter of fact if you dont know the Bible and read it on a regular basis, then your going to get stumped and end up looking like you don't know anything and cant explain simply why you trust in Jesus. That said let me know if you plan on going and lets all see if we can meet there togeather, without judgment or persecution, but love and joy and truth, and the peace of God. let it reign in our hearts and God will do the rest for those we encounter.
