GLORIOUS PC MASTER RACE FOO!

Good questions, you ask alot of good questions.

When i read scriptures its like reading a history book, but not as boring. Just not very special or spiritual.

Sometimes i pray just because i am worried or really want help with something, like for my job interview, or right before a test.

At this point it isn't really forced to believe it, i might have been earlier, but now its more of i don't really. Going to church is most commonly whats forced. But to be honest sometimes i don't know why i don't believe or want to and i can only justify it as being forced cause that's how it started.

I don't mind you asking these questions, I enjoy it. Its actually quite helping. Plus, since I don't know you in real life it isn't gonna cause any issues. Like if i told you I watch rated R movies everyday and am not a virgin (i am a virgin and haven't seen those movies as of now) it isn't gonna make a difference if i like go to church, cause i wont see you there.

If you dont mind me asking, how old are you? I'm curious, cause you seem to have your stuff together.
#44 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
That's a very intelligent answer.

Someone taught me something pretty cool. Say a prayer, and don't ask for anything. Just say a prayer of sincere thanks to Heavenly Father for all of the wonderful blessings that you have in your life.

It provides a wonder feeling, I promise

Haha that makes sense, but even if I did know you irl, I wouldn't say anything. That jjat starts stuff that's unnecessary. People should be able to confide in someone and be confident that their information is safe.

I am 21. And thanks, I try to keep my stuff together lol.

A big issue i had with going to church for awhile was I would show up, they would ask me a question like "what do you do when something goes bad and the situation doesn't seem holy". I would give a completely not real (at least i thought it was obviously dumb) response like (if bad things happen i ignore everything and think about the BoM". Everyone agreed and told an experience where they did that. I stopped going to young mens and church to see if anyone would notice, see that i was not really believing and stuff, no one noticed or cared.

I was curious to see if God would do anything about it you know, have someone i'm alone with at church come up and say something like "did you mean what you said". idk why but for the longest time i have wanted my teacher to come up and ask that so i could say to her "no, i did not mean that at all, i dont really even believe this". For a stint my motivation to read the BoM and go to church was so that people would feel very spiritual around me and i would tell them i dont believe it.

It sounds weird i know, but this was how I thought about stuff, sometimes still do.
#42 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
That's understandable. A lot of us have been in the same situation.

So, if you don't mind me asking, how do you feel when you read the scriptures, or pray, or go to church? Do you truly believe it? Or do you just feel forced to believe?
User avatar #39 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Well it's nice to see another down to earth mormon, I get tired of the one's who bear their testimony for 20 minutes crying (not saying there is anything wrong with that, not at all, just making a point) or always answer questions with something like "so he started talking about weed and I just got up and left". It's just unrealistic, that's what the world is, don't turn the other cheek and ignore life.

Mormon Joke:
This dude in my ward i know went in for an interview at BYU after high school to try to get in with long hair. After telling the guy "i plan on getting it cut next week" the dude turned to him and said "do you think that hairstyle is appropriate ?". He pointed at a picture of Jesus and said "that dude's hair was pretty crazy"
He didn't make it in.
#40 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
I agree. The Lord doesn't ask us to shy away from the world, or from people.

Just because you talk to someone that doesn't have the same standards as you do, doesn't mean you're going to Hell because of it. People like that drive me crazy. lol

Haha That's fantastic.

Well last night I argued with my dad cause he forced me to come into his room and mark my scriptures for seminary (5am every day, not implemented into school like lucky shmucks out in utah). I was very busy before but he made me drop everything and come in. I had to share a scripture marker with my brother and he was watching TV. it doesn't sound like much, and I cannot explain why i felt so frustrated and annoyed at that moment, but he flipped when i wanted to leave to find my own marker. Wouldn't leave me alone.

I think it's funny how you ask me that now seeing how last night I told my dad "every time i envision my future it has never been at church". Not saying I hate the church and all, and it was true, but I wasn't meaning i wanted to leave the church.
#38 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
I don't live in UT, so I had 5 am Seminary, too.

See, that's what I mean. Something so small, and he turns it into a big deal. I'm sure that if he had requested you to join him, instead of demanding it, you would have had a different feeling about joining.
#35 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Dang man, it's like you were here last night.

Yeah, it's causing some issues. You know how the church is all about how it's your chose and we are lucky to be able to and stuff. Well, come temple trips it doesn't matter if i want to go or not i have to, gets me out of the mood and it doesn't feel special. I'm also a very realistic person, most people view it as a downer or something, so in classes when people talk about always separating ourselves from smokers or walking away in scenarios that are unholy, it just seems kinda dumb to me. idk where you live but in Wisconsin it isn't like utah so everyone i know out here (non-memebers) some and do bad stuff, so its what they say sounds feeble.

You could say it raises doubts for me, but my parents always pushing it gave me the distant view of that stuff. Why did you ask?
#36 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Why? What was last night?

I completely understand what you mean.

I ask because that seems to be what happens when Mormon (and any other religious) parents push it on their children. They push it so hard, and make it a "my way or nothing at all" scenario, it tends to make kids want to rebel. And it's sad, because I've seen people that wholeheartedly believed in the church, believed every part of it, but left because their parents forced it upon them. It's so counter-productive.

Just know that it all ultimately comes down to YOU. Do you believe in the church? Do you believe that the BoM is true? Yeah? Well that's fantastic, and be thankful that you've found what you believe in. Be thankful that it's right there for you.

But if you don't believe it, don't feel bad. Don't feel ashamed. You are who you are, and you will believe what YOU need to believe in. Don't let anyone force it on you. Yeah, you're underage, but not for long. You'll be an adult soon, and can finally make your own decisions (on a wider scale).

tl;dr Don't let them force something on you. You need to believe what you feel is right.
#33 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Yeah, my mom was a convert and she pushes it alot. Get's angry when I don't want to go to young men's (FJ says i'm 23, that's just what i put for every site i use like steam so i don't have issues with things ever, i'm actually only 16).

She flipped when i got my job and told them i could work wednesdays which is when young men's at the church is.
#34 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Ouch! My mom was a convert, but she's really cool. When I was growing up she always let me decide whether or not I wanted to go. She even let me investigate other churches. It helped a lot.

So, do you see yourself falling away from the church because of her pushing it on you so hard?

Good questions, you ask alot of good questions.

When i read scriptures its like reading a history book, but not as boring. Just not very special or spiritual.

Sometimes i pray just because i am worried or really want help with something, like for my job interview, or right before a test.

At this point it isn't really forced to believe it, i might have been earlier, but now its more of i don't really. Going to church is most commonly whats forced. But to be honest sometimes i don't know why i don't believe or want to and i can only justify it as being forced cause that's how it started.

I don't mind you asking these questions, I enjoy it. Its actually quite helping. Plus, since I don't know you in real life it isn't gonna cause any issues. Like if i told you I watch rated R movies everyday and am not a virgin (i am a virgin and haven't seen those movies as of now) it isn't gonna make a difference if i like go to church, cause i wont see you there.

A big issue i had with going to church for awhile was I would show up, they would ask me a question like "what do you do when something goes bad and the situation doesn't seem holy". I would give a completely not real (at least i thought it was obviously dumb) response like (if bad things happen i ignore everything and think about the BoM". Everyone agreed and told an experience where they did that. I stopped going to young mens and church to see if anyone would notice, see that i was not really believing and stuff, no one noticed or cared.

I was curious to see if God would do anything about it you know, have someone i'm alone with at church come up and say something like "did you mean what you said". idk why but for the longest time i have wanted my teacher to come up and ask that so i could say to her "no, i did not mean that at all, i dont really even believe this". For a stint my motivation to read the BoM and go to church was so that people would feel very spiritual around me and i would tell them i dont believe it.

Well last night I argued with my dad cause he forced me to come into his room and mark my scriptures for seminary (5am every day, not implemented into school like lucky shmucks out in utah). I was very busy before but he made me drop everything and come in. I had to share a scripture marker with my brother and he was watching TV. it doesn't sound like much, and I cannot explain why i felt so frustrated and annoyed at that moment, but he flipped when i wanted to leave to find my own marker. Wouldn't leave me alone.

I think it's funny how you ask me that now seeing how last night I told my dad "every time i envision my future it has never been at church". Not saying I hate the church and all, and it was true, but I wasn't meaning i wanted to leave the church.

I don't live in UT, so I had 5 am Seminary, too.

See, that's what I mean. Something so small, and he turns it into a big deal. I'm sure that if he had requested you to join him, instead of demanding it, you would have had a different feeling about joining.
#35 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Dang man, it's like you were here last night.

Yeah, it's causing some issues. You know how the church is all about how it's your chose and we are lucky to be able to and stuff. Well, come temple trips it doesn't matter if i want to go or not i have to, gets me out of the mood and it doesn't feel special. I'm also a very realistic person, most people view it as a downer or something, so in classes when people talk about always separating ourselves from smokers or walking away in scenarios that are unholy, it just seems kinda dumb to me. idk where you live but in Wisconsin it isn't like utah so everyone i know out here (non-memebers) some and do bad stuff, so its what they say sounds feeble.

You could say it raises doubts for me, but my parents always pushing it gave me the distant view of that stuff. Why did you ask?
#36 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Why? What was last night?

I completely understand what you mean.

I ask because that seems to be what happens when Mormon (and any other religious) parents push it on their children. They push it so hard, and make it a "my way or nothing at all" scenario, it tends to make kids want to rebel. And it's sad, because I've seen people that wholeheartedly believed in the church, believed every part of it, but left because their parents forced it upon them. It's so counter-productive.

Just know that it all ultimately comes down to YOU. Do you believe in the church? Do you believe that the BoM is true? Yeah? Well that's fantastic, and be thankful that you've found what you believe in. Be thankful that it's right there for you.

But if you don't believe it, don't feel bad. Don't feel ashamed. You are who you are, and you will believe what YOU need to believe in. Don't let anyone force it on you. Yeah, you're underage, but not for long. You'll be an adult soon, and can finally make your own decisions (on a wider scale).

tl;dr Don't let them force something on you. You need to believe what you feel is right.

See, that's what I mean. Something so small, and he turns it into a big deal. I'm sure that if he had requested you to join him, instead of demanding it, you would have had a different feeling about joining.
#35 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Dang man, it's like you were here last night.

Yeah, it's causing some issues. You know how the church is all about how it's your chose and we are lucky to be able to and stuff. Well, come temple trips it doesn't matter if i want to go or not i have to, gets me out of the mood and it doesn't feel special. I'm also a very realistic person, most people view it as a downer or something, so in classes when people talk about always separating ourselves from smokers or walking away in scenarios that are unholy, it just seems kinda dumb to me. idk where you live but in Wisconsin it isn't like utah so everyone i know out here (non-memebers) some and do bad stuff, so its what they say sounds feeble.

You could say it raises doubts for me, but my parents always pushing it gave me the distant view of that stuff. Why did you ask?
#36 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Why? What was last night?

I completely understand what you mean.

I ask because that seems to be what happens when Mormon (and any other religious) parents push it on their children. They push it so hard, and make it a "my way or nothing at all" scenario, it tends to make kids want to rebel. And it's sad, because I've seen people that wholeheartedly believed in the church, believed every part of it, but left because their parents forced it upon them. It's so counter-productive.

Just know that it all ultimately comes down to YOU. Do you believe in the church? Do you believe that the BoM is true? Yeah? Well that's fantastic, and be thankful that you've found what you believe in. Be thankful that it's right there for you.

But if you don't believe it, don't feel bad. Don't feel ashamed. You are who you are, and you will believe what YOU need to believe in. Don't let anyone force it on you. Yeah, you're underage, but not for long. You'll be an adult soon, and can finally make your own decisions (on a wider scale).

tl;dr Don't let them force something on you. You need to believe what you feel is right.

Yeah, my mom was a convert and she pushes it alot. Get's angry when I don't want to go to young men's (FJ says i'm 23, that's just what i put for every site i use like steam so i don't have issues with things ever, i'm actually only 16).

She flipped when i got my job and told them i could work wednesdays which is when young men's at the church is.
#34 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Ouch! My mom was a convert, but she's really cool. When I was growing up she always let me decide whether or not I wanted to go. She even let me investigate other churches. It helped a lot.

Good questions, you ask alot of good questions.

When i read scriptures its like reading a history book, but not as boring. Just not very special or spiritual.

Sometimes i pray just because i am worried or really want help with something, like for my job interview, or right before a test.

At this point it isn't really forced to believe it, i might have been earlier, but now its more of i don't really. Going to church is most commonly whats forced. But to be honest sometimes i don't know why i don't believe or want to and i can only justify it as being forced cause that's how it started.

I don't mind you asking these questions, I enjoy it. Its actually quite helping. Plus, since I don't know you in real life it isn't gonna cause any issues. Like if i told you I watch rated R movies everyday and am not a virgin (i am a virgin and haven't seen those movies as of now) it isn't gonna make a difference if i like go to church, cause i wont see you there.

If you dont mind me asking, how old are you? I'm curious, cause you seem to have your stuff together.
#44 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
That's a very intelligent answer.

Someone taught me something pretty cool. Say a prayer, and don't ask for anything. Just say a prayer of sincere thanks to Heavenly Father for all of the wonderful blessings that you have in your life.

It provides a wonder feeling, I promise

Haha that makes sense, but even if I did know you irl, I wouldn't say anything. That jjat starts stuff that's unnecessary. People should be able to confide in someone and be confident that their information is safe.

I am 21. And thanks, I try to keep my stuff together lol.
User avatar #41 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
A big issue i had with going to church for awhile was I would show up, they would ask me a question like "what do you do when something goes bad and the situation doesn't seem holy". I would give a completely not real (at least i thought it was obviously dumb) response like (if bad things happen i ignore everything and think about the BoM". Everyone agreed and told an experience where they did that. I stopped going to young mens and church to see if anyone would notice, see that i was not really believing and stuff, no one noticed or cared.

I was curious to see if God would do anything about it you know, have someone i'm alone with at church come up and say something like "did you mean what you said". idk why but for the longest time i have wanted my teacher to come up and ask that so i could say to her "no, i did not mean that at all, i dont really even believe this". For a stint my motivation to read the BoM and go to church was so that people would feel very spiritual around me and i would tell them i dont believe it.

It sounds weird i know, but this was how I thought about stuff, sometimes still do.
#42 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
That's understandable. A lot of us have been in the same situation.

So, if you don't mind me asking, how do you feel when you read the scriptures, or pray, or go to church? Do you truly believe it? Or do you just feel forced to believe?
User avatar #39 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Well it's nice to see another down to earth mormon, I get tired of the one's who bear their testimony for 20 minutes crying (not saying there is anything wrong with that, not at all, just making a point) or always answer questions with something like "so he started talking about weed and I just got up and left". It's just unrealistic, that's what the world is, don't turn the other cheek and ignore life.

Mormon Joke:
This dude in my ward i know went in for an interview at BYU after high school to try to get in with long hair. After telling the guy "i plan on getting it cut next week" the dude turned to him and said "do you think that hairstyle is appropriate ?". He pointed at a picture of Jesus and said "that dude's hair was pretty crazy"
He didn't make it in.
#40 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
I agree. The Lord doesn't ask us to shy away from the world, or from people.

Just because you talk to someone that doesn't have the same standards as you do, doesn't mean you're going to Hell because of it. People like that drive me crazy. lol

Haha That's fantastic.
User avatar #37 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Well last night I argued with my dad cause he forced me to come into his room and mark my scriptures for seminary (5am every day, not implemented into school like lucky shmucks out in utah). I was very busy before but he made me drop everything and come in. I had to share a scripture marker with my brother and he was watching TV. it doesn't sound like much, and I cannot explain why i felt so frustrated and annoyed at that moment, but he flipped when i wanted to leave to find my own marker. Wouldn't leave me alone.

I think it's funny how you ask me that now seeing how last night I told my dad "every time i envision my future it has never been at church". Not saying I hate the church and all, and it was true, but I wasn't meaning i wanted to leave the church.

Well it's cool to know straight up another mormon, but here's something you don't know. Cause I have the name "mormon" i see every post when someone talks about mormons, you can guess that most are jokes or jeers, but i've seen reply's to them tons of times from other mormons.

I've seen at lest 30 openly mormon FJ users on here that back up the LDS in arguments. We're not alone.

Yeah, much less on Steam that I know of, but there might be a Mormon group there, i've never actually checked. I found a mormon while playing TF2 once. Nice girl, was funny when she raged cause she was all:
"oh mah friggin frig, stop alre- *dies* NOOOOOO gosh freakin darnit"

Computer died before i could send a friend request. I was quite depressed for awhile after that. Forgot her name....

Aww.. Maybe post a missed connection on Craig's List... hahaha!

But seriously, that sucks.

Good questions, you ask alot of good questions.

When i read scriptures its like reading a history book, but not as boring. Just not very special or spiritual.

Sometimes i pray just because i am worried or really want help with something, like for my job interview, or right before a test.

At this point it isn't really forced to believe it, i might have been earlier, but now its more of i don't really. Going to church is most commonly whats forced. But to be honest sometimes i don't know why i don't believe or want to and i can only justify it as being forced cause that's how it started.

I don't mind you asking these questions, I enjoy it. Its actually quite helping. Plus, since I don't know you in real life it isn't gonna cause any issues. Like if i told you I watch rated R movies everyday and am not a virgin (i am a virgin and haven't seen those movies as of now) it isn't gonna make a difference if i like go to church, cause i wont see you there.

If you dont mind me asking, how old are you? I'm curious, cause you seem to have your stuff together.
#44 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
That's a very intelligent answer.

Someone taught me something pretty cool. Say a prayer, and don't ask for anything. Just say a prayer of sincere thanks to Heavenly Father for all of the wonderful blessings that you have in your life.

It provides a wonder feeling, I promise

Haha that makes sense, but even if I did know you irl, I wouldn't say anything. That jjat starts stuff that's unnecessary. People should be able to confide in someone and be confident that their information is safe.

I am 21. And thanks, I try to keep my stuff together lol.
User avatar #41 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
A big issue i had with going to church for awhile was I would show up, they would ask me a question like "what do you do when something goes bad and the situation doesn't seem holy". I would give a completely not real (at least i thought it was obviously dumb) response like (if bad things happen i ignore everything and think about the BoM". Everyone agreed and told an experience where they did that. I stopped going to young mens and church to see if anyone would notice, see that i was not really believing and stuff, no one noticed or cared.

I was curious to see if God would do anything about it you know, have someone i'm alone with at church come up and say something like "did you mean what you said". idk why but for the longest time i have wanted my teacher to come up and ask that so i could say to her "no, i did not mean that at all, i dont really even believe this". For a stint my motivation to read the BoM and go to church was so that people would feel very spiritual around me and i would tell them i dont believe it.

It sounds weird i know, but this was how I thought about stuff, sometimes still do.
#42 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
That's understandable. A lot of us have been in the same situation.

So, if you don't mind me asking, how do you feel when you read the scriptures, or pray, or go to church? Do you truly believe it? Or do you just feel forced to believe?
User avatar #39 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Well it's nice to see another down to earth mormon, I get tired of the one's who bear their testimony for 20 minutes crying (not saying there is anything wrong with that, not at all, just making a point) or always answer questions with something like "so he started talking about weed and I just got up and left". It's just unrealistic, that's what the world is, don't turn the other cheek and ignore life.

Mormon Joke:
This dude in my ward i know went in for an interview at BYU after high school to try to get in with long hair. After telling the guy "i plan on getting it cut next week" the dude turned to him and said "do you think that hairstyle is appropriate ?". He pointed at a picture of Jesus and said "that dude's hair was pretty crazy"
He didn't make it in.
#40 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
I agree. The Lord doesn't ask us to shy away from the world, or from people.

Just because you talk to someone that doesn't have the same standards as you do, doesn't mean you're going to Hell because of it. People like that drive me crazy. lol

Haha That's fantastic.
User avatar #37 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Well last night I argued with my dad cause he forced me to come into his room and mark my scriptures for seminary (5am every day, not implemented into school like lucky shmucks out in utah). I was very busy before but he made me drop everything and come in. I had to share a scripture marker with my brother and he was watching TV. it doesn't sound like much, and I cannot explain why i felt so frustrated and annoyed at that moment, but he flipped when i wanted to leave to find my own marker. Wouldn't leave me alone.

I think it's funny how you ask me that now seeing how last night I told my dad "every time i envision my future it has never been at church". Not saying I hate the church and all, and it was true, but I wasn't meaning i wanted to leave the church.
#38 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
I don't live in UT, so I had 5 am Seminary, too.

See, that's what I mean. Something so small, and he turns it into a big deal. I'm sure that if he had requested you to join him, instead of demanding it, you would have had a different feeling about joining.
#35 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Dang man, it's like you were here last night.

Yeah, it's causing some issues. You know how the church is all about how it's your chose and we are lucky to be able to and stuff. Well, come temple trips it doesn't matter if i want to go or not i have to, gets me out of the mood and it doesn't feel special. I'm also a very realistic person, most people view it as a downer or something, so in classes when people talk about always separating ourselves from smokers or walking away in scenarios that are unholy, it just seems kinda dumb to me. idk where you live but in Wisconsin it isn't like utah so everyone i know out here (non-memebers) some and do bad stuff, so its what they say sounds feeble.

You could say it raises doubts for me, but my parents always pushing it gave me the distant view of that stuff. Why did you ask?
#36 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Why? What was last night?

I completely understand what you mean.

I ask because that seems to be what happens when Mormon (and any other religious) parents push it on their children. They push it so hard, and make it a "my way or nothing at all" scenario, it tends to make kids want to rebel. And it's sad, because I've seen people that wholeheartedly believed in the church, believed every part of it, but left because their parents forced it upon them. It's so counter-productive.

Just know that it all ultimately comes down to YOU. Do you believe in the church? Do you believe that the BoM is true? Yeah? Well that's fantastic, and be thankful that you've found what you believe in. Be thankful that it's right there for you.

But if you don't believe it, don't feel bad. Don't feel ashamed. You are who you are, and you will believe what YOU need to believe in. Don't let anyone force it on you. Yeah, you're underage, but not for long. You'll be an adult soon, and can finally make your own decisions (on a wider scale).

tl;dr Don't let them force something on you. You need to believe what you feel is right.
#33 - mormon (08/27/2013) [-]
Yeah, my mom was a convert and she pushes it alot. Get's angry when I don't want to go to young men's (FJ says i'm 23, that's just what i put for every site i use like steam so i don't have issues with things ever, i'm actually only 16).

She flipped when i got my job and told them i could work wednesdays which is when young men's at the church is.
#34 - notaboss (08/27/2013) [-]
Ouch! My mom was a convert, but she's really cool. When I was growing up she always let me decide whether or not I wanted to go. She even let me investigate other churches. It helped a lot.

So, do you see yourself falling away from the church because of her pushing it on you so hard?

Don't worry, mate. Love can be hard, but be glad this happened to you. You now know that the feelings weren't equal, you don't have to go trough a divorce, you have a new chance at finding the one and you're still hella young. Hell, for all you know the next person you get together with might even give you stronger feelings than what you've had for her! I've been where you were, for three years I stuck to someone who cheated on me twice and the first time she didn't tell me before half a year had passed. I loved her with all my heart, hell, I still miss her a year later. (Perhaps because she's my fap material now, so it might only be sexual for all I know.) But I realise that someone that can do something like that to you isn't the one for you, all it took was a month of not being close to her, hard, but it opened my eyes. So matey, take it easy, get over her and go on. You've got it all going for you. Hope you're more lucky than me next time.

Been there, felt that. My first girlfriend cheated on me twice. We got along great and then in the end it's just like she didn't care at all as if everything was just my imagination. Much of my life I've spent by myself, you could say, so I say fuck it. I graduate high school in under a year and I'm joining the military when I get out.

TL;DR? Fuck everybody, everyone screws you over in the end anyways.
