Hey there,

It's 'that' time of the year again, people are talking about celebrating Christmas again. How do you celebrate it and why. 
This time it was someone dear to me who asked me why I didn't celebrate it with christmas gifts and what it was like being raised as a Christian... . 

As I kind of explained myself in a long comment, I think I can tell you guys my story aswell... 
I think my story might startle some die hard Christians, so don't read if you are one of those.

~

"Why don't you Celebrate Christmas with gifts?"
Because according to my parents, Christmas presents are from Santa, and santa is a 'figure' who has been brought to life, so people only cared for presents and forgot about the 'real' thought of christmas... That Jesus was born... .
So we dont have any christmas gifts... none under the tree, none anywhere. We don't celebrate it with gifts... My parents sing songs to the Lord, pray, Thank God for comming to the earth, and go the to church.

-I told her my parents were against hanging angels in the christmas trees, so they broke off the wings so it were 'normal' humans, and that was allowed in the tree...- She commented with "And hanging dead people in the tree is okay?!"
HAHAHAHAHA I know, I know. We as young adults now, laugh about that and annoy my parents with that "REMEMBER WHAT YOU DID WITH THE ANGELS BACK THEN?" we know it's horrible and weird, so we taunt them with it now.
I mean, I dont cooperate with my parents thoughts on it. Some are just natural to me, others I can not understand for myself. Like; I totally like the idea of Santa, the chimney, the gifts, the nice celebration... we don't do that and I would love to.

Christian?
So no, you dont got me offended. Since I totally got your point. I am raised as a Christian, I believe in God and how the earth has been made... I belief there is a God (yet I have doubts since why does he make some people such a living hell?) and he died for us living creatures on this planet... but I'm not one of those people who do all that is written in the Bible. Heck if I would, I totally would go to hell now. As people tell me I do anyway since I'm bisexual.

I believe in how it is started, and basically that's it. I believe we are here to be good to each other, and try to help each other if we can. I Think that if there is a God (since it has never been proven) he wouldn't care LESS if we pray every day and sit in the church every sunday. If he is really up there, I think he would be way happier if he sees we try to help each other as human beings. Acting well and taking care of each other. I dont think he would be to me like: 'I see you are kind to your surroundings and try to help those in need, yet you are bisexual and don't pray every day?! Oh no, HELL FOR YOU MATE!'
And later there is this dude, 'Oh I see you have been an ass to about everyone around you and you paid all your employees a bad salery so you could have a better life yourself, anyway; they were non-christians anyway. Yet I see here you read the bible and go to church, so be welcome!'

If that's who God is, he can keep his heaven and then hell it is for me; sounds like a better place anyway if people like that are in heaven.

I would call it; I have my own beliefs.

~

Any questions left?

No kidding... but really guys... Maybe I can put this on paper quite simple and think this black and white.. . But isn't it how the Bible is written? You either go to hell if you don't live by the 12 rules or you go to heaven if you do?

That heaven must be empty as heck in that case, since we all sin.
And I do know there is said: "If you ask for forgiveness God will provide", do you really think, you can kill people and say: "Oops sorry God!" And you go to heaven, and be good to everyone around you but DON'T Pray, you go to hell?

Really... ?!

Yeah I know all the stories in the Bible, (there is a Vicar very close to me, so please, Ive been thrown dead with the stories.), and yes I know there was this guy on the crosses who was a murderer and asked for forgiveness aswell.
But isn't it just weird? When you think about it?
Or am I the only one doubting all this?

I know, I don't often write serious things, and I look more or less without a person without a brain... the way I act at least.
It's simplier to go through life like that, people don't expect things from you... But for this once, here are my real thoughts.

So, what are your thoughts on this subject??
What do you think of the way I believe?
What do you believe on your own?

And don't tell me I go to hell or heaven; since the Bible says: "Only God can judge." Thanks mate. ;)

Xoxo~

aww, I'm sorry to hear that. Good luck with it
I hope everything goes smoothly for you. I hope it's nothing too serious.

I know, he was too silly to not add to the message. 

Don't worry about it. I was just returning the favour, I hadn't heard from you in a 
while so I thought I'd check in.

I'm very well thank you :) all's going good.
