So, yea, I do believe in all of those things which is why I can state I am Christian. Also, again, I am not confused and that is why I put the "sorta." I know I'm not fully but I believe in about 75% of the Christian faith the other 25% being my own beliefs. Also, I have a religious mother and have attended church before so don't feel or think you're my pastor.

that's not what you originally said though, and i take it the way it's meant to be taken. there is so much to the Bible that not even believers who have believed for so many years don't know everything about the Bible. it's history and a lesson on morals. everything from from the creation of the world to the birth of Jesus to Revelation is true and either See More▼

Ok, let me put this in a different way: I believe in the Bible. I just don't follow word-for-word what it says because i follow the big-picture moral and obligations and rules of the story. So,, you just take it literally while I just take out the theme.

okay. it says "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." faith alone doesn't mean you're saved, and works doesn't save you either. Faith comes first, then the works. Not works then faith.

faith is not the same as obedience. God clearly states through the Bible that it is his word and is the truth. having faith would mean you'd take God at his word.

in several verses, like 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and Hebrews 4:12, that the Bible (or God's word) is God-breathed, for one. also, the Bible also says in James 2:24 that (i'm not directly quoting this, but i will give a summary) faith alone doesn't save you. if you read 1 John (the whole book), you will see several characteristics that "true believers" are supposed See More▼
