    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

So Confused...

Discussion in 'Teen Hangout' started by if confusion was a human, Sep 2, 2017.

  1. Here's a little back story so you all can help me with my problems.

    I attended an extremely Christian School during the first few years in my life (Kindergarten to 5th grade), worshiped Jesus and took him as my savior in 4th grade. After 5th grade, I changed to a different school (which was Christian but not as religious as my previous school), in which I took part in things that I look back on and laugh. I began to use profanity, masturbate, but never really committed what I felt was a "bad sin:" I neglected Jesus and God for quite a bit, and a few weeks ago, I decided to give him another chance. I TRY to pray to God every night, but i always doubt myself (Is my prayer long enough? Am I saying the right things? etc.f). I realized that my old habits (swearing, masturbating,etc.) were obsolete and were against the new faith I had been reborn into. So I began "taming:" my old habits, making my profanity less vulgar and masturbating less. I was very scared and confused because I didn't know if God looked down on me and frowned or if he was happy that I was changing in order to please him.

    I have read many articles about how the bibles says "Do not lust" and therefore "do not masturbate," but it is a way of stress relief that I am used to. Do you think God is happy that I am trying my best to solve my problems or is God unhappy with what I am doing?
