I do not believe that all things are relative.
I believe that everything in the Bible ( meaning the original Hebrew and Greek texts of the Old and New Testaments, and not including the book of Mormon or any other such religious text) is completely true in everything it writes, and because of that I believe: I believe the entire universe was created out of nothing in six literal days by an infinitely powerful and perfect God ( the only God that exists) who planned EVERYTHING that has ever happened.
I believe we ( humans )were formed out of the dust of ground, perfect, with immortal souls, in the image of this same God, by this same God, for the purpose of glorifying God by enjoying him forever.
I believe that humans fell in a great tragedy from this perfect state to be completely soiled, wicked, and ruined beings, having nothing good whatsoever in them.
I believe that in our fallen and sinful state we are disgusting to this God I believe that this God is composed of three almighty, all knowing, and infinitely intelligent, and sinless persons, and yet somehow is only one God.
I believe that we are incapable of truly comprehending how it is possible that one God exists in three persons.
I believe that one of these three persons became a true man, came to earth, did several things that literally defy the laws of physics, and died to take the punishment that the humans he had chosen deserved for their sins.
I believe that this man rose from the dead, and is now in a place known as heaven.
I believe that this man will return to earth one day, whether in my lifetime or not.
I believe that your sins will only be forgiven, thereby saving you from eternal judgment in a place called hell, if you put your trust entirely in Gods substitution for you, meaning that you believe that Jesus (the person of god who came to earth) has born your judgment on his shoulders of his own free will.
I believe that only the people that God has chosen to trust in his death will do it (trust in his redeeming death, that is)
I believe that am one of the chosen, and therefore I will one day, whether because I die or whether Jesus returns to earth before then, go up into heaven to join the three persons of the one true God and exist eternally in rapturous praise of this amazing, incredible, extraordinary, awesome God.
I believe that heaven will be a perfect existence with no pain or sorrow.
I believe that we are to worship this God now, and despise sin.
I believe that the Mosaic law shows what sin is. The text that records God giving the law is listed in a translated version here:
Exodus 20:2 "I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you were slaves. Exodus 20:3 "Worship no god but me. Exodus 20:4 "Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Exodus 20:5 Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the LORD your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. Exodus 20:6 But I show my love to thousands of generations of those who love me and obey my laws. Exodus 20:7 "Do not use my name for evil purposes, for I, the LORD your God, will punish anyone who misuses my name. Exodus 20:8 "Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy. Exodus 20:9 You have six days in which to do your work, Exodus 20:10 but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me. On that day no one is to work---neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country. Exodus 20:11 In six days I, the LORD, made the earth, the sky, the seas, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested. That is why I, the LORD, blessed the Sabbath and made it holy. Exodus 20:12 "Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you. Exodus 20:13 "Do not commit murder. Exodus 20:14 "Do not commit adultery. Exodus 20:15 "Do not steal. Exodus 20:16 "Do not accuse anyone falsely. Exodus 20:17 "Do not desire another man's house; do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns." also listed in other places in the Bible as sins are homosexuality and hate.
I believe that abortion is murder. I believe that marriage is an institution of God, not of the state, and therefore the government has no right whatsoever to decide what qualifies as a marriage, and they have no right to break up (referring to divorce). I believe that only the joining of a man and a woman counts as a marriage.
I believe that Roman Catholicism, Mormonism, and other religions that don't truly and completely follow the Bible are not true Christians
I believe that praying a prayer doesn't necessarily mean you are saved.
I am inclined to get in minor trouble through mistakes or ignorance, I've done this several times, and have been rebuked by several people, including at least one administrator, so HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Adopt me please! I have been adopted!
My world motto:
Let God be thought to be true, even if it means every man is a liar.

Thats it on that.
My political views:
I would like to point out here that I am only supportive of any political movement for as long as it battles for justice and morality.
Thats it on that.
