The purpose of this page is to get people to Christ. That's it.

My Time As An Atheist

I was "raised Catholic". Like many suburban Catholics, this is almost meaningless. It amounts to attending Mass and being Confirmed. Our religious education does not prepare us to defend our faith. It barely teaches us to memorize traditions.

After highschool I somehow ended up watching an episode of The Atheist Experience and found myself agreeing with basically everything that was being said. Fast forward, and I'm watching it weekly, watching TheAmazingAtheist and other "skeptics", reading Dawkins(The God Delusion) and Hitchens(God is Not Great) and Russell(Why I Am Not a Christian), etc. Oh man, I think I-- yeah, I read Sam Harris too. Cringe. What was the book... "The End of Faith" Ohhohohoho man. Okay, I'm sorry. I don't regret any of it, because it's good to expose yourself to ideas. I definitely regret acting like a jackass, though.

No-one was more of a hardcore atheist than I was. I annoyed the everloving shit out of everyone around me. I knew all the arguments, I understood all the logical fallacies. I debated countless people online over the course of a few years, just racking up theist scalps like such a total badass.

A favorite line of mine, and many atheists, was "Well I'd LOVE to believe in God, but I just CAN'T because I'm not convinced."

We don't know it when we say it, but this isn't true.

How I Became a Christian

The year was 2016.

I don't want to make this too long. Basically, after Bernie Sanders had his cuck soul spirit cooked from his body, I started supporting Donald Trump as a joke. Many of us said we'd sooner go to him than Hildawg, and I did it. But it quickly stopped being a joke when I realized how fucking feeble the aruguments against him were. (Around this time I also accquired a disdain for journalists, weaselly language, and the word "horrifying") Sure, he wasn't promising me free shit, but so what? He wanted to build us a Big, Beautiful Wall, and the pearl clutching about "racism" for being realistic about our immigration issues no-longer affected me.

The night of the election, I watched on the New York Times website as the gauge sloooooowly moved from "HILLARY CLINTON 99%" all the way over to Trump. It was the funniest thing that ever happened, and it made me realize that miracles could happen. In half a year I went from an atheist Bernie Bro to a Semi-ironic Trump Supporting "Christian".

It started half-hearted and ironic. But I wanted to be sincere. And eventually, it became sincere. Because if you really want to identify as something, you just will.

That might not sound like such a great idea if you're still hung up on "logic". But you can't learn anything if you don't want to learn it. Imagine how hard it'd be to learn math if you'd already convinced yourself that math was wrong.

Why You Should Become a Christian

I could just post a bunch of cruel memes here, right? But I won't. (maybe just one, idk)

Really think about the kind of people who reject and hate Christianity. They list their mental illnesses so you don't even have to play armchair psychologist. They're depressed, they're weak, their relationships fall apart because they're based entirely on sex and there's nothing tying them together. They don't have children because children cost money and they need their money to buy plastic crap for their plastic lives. Their entire lives are just excuses to reject tradition and embrace the path of what they perceive to be the least resistance.

It's all petty, trivial, meaningless shit.

I know. #NotAll. You can totally "reason" your way into a secular good(Christian) life. Accepting Christianity from the start just happens to make it about 100x easier.

I'm not going to argue against other religions. I'm only arguing for Christianity.

How You Can Become a Christian

1- Choose to be. You literally just have to want it. That's step 1. This involves swallowing your pride. For me, it was easy (I'm so very very modest) But that's it. Pride is sin, and it's so obviously evil that even if Christianity were completely wrong, pride would still be transparently demonic. Accepting that you're not perfect is one of the healthiest things a person can do. A lot of people would accept that previous sentence in a casual talk-- but if you add the religious context to it, they'll get very defensive. That's probably because while we might own up to some faults, there's plenty of sins that we don't want to face--typically ones named by religion. This, of course, comes from pride.

2- Get comfortable with the idea of faith. Get over the idea of "proof" and accept that everything ultimately amounts to Christian faith or Atheist solipsism. If you're a redditbrain, you'll never be "satisfied" with the "evidence" for why you should be a Christian instead of someone who believes we're aliens living in a simulation. It's really just your choice. You could also just be a nihilist, but nihilists are frankly subhuman.

3- Accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior-- his sacrifice saves you from what you deserve for being such an idiot loser.

4- That's it, congrats.

Extra Tips

Christianity is not about "love" and doing anything you want because God will always love you, it is about obediance to the Lord of the Universe. "Churches" that worship "love" are cults that should be ignored. They are not actual Christians. Anyone or anything that teaches you to be prideful is Anti-Christian. "No true Christian" isn't a fallacy-- you are not a Christian if you are on Tiktok dancing like a clown and telling autistic boys to have their genitals eviscerated. Simple as.

Catholics and Protestants hate each other for pretty valid reasons. The Catholic Church is compromised and Protestantism allows for people to pretend to be pastors on TikTok. "Conservative" branches of either are pretty solid, but there's really tons of little things everyone disagrees about.

Read C.S. Lewis.

Get over the "bloo hoo whence cometh evil" thinking. I know it's hard. Just get over it. Christianity has never taught "bad stuff will never happen." The "but why then" is something you'll be able to address in time. Everything ultimately glorifies God.

Apologia Church has pretty good sermons, but my Catholicbros would say nah. But that's the fun of the infighting.

this page will probably always be a work in progress, I'll update it uhhhh, whenever.

Feel free to reach out, but since I went through my atheist phase already, I'm not interested in whatever you think I haven't seen before. Other Christians/wannabe-Christians/Muslims welcome. Suggestions welcome.
