    I am 3 months along and looking into adoption! Some things I know I'm looking for are a married straight couple, but I don't know what I should look for when looking for a couple. Also I have a soon to be 2 year old daughter but I was wondering if I should try for open. Adoption? I know its not forcable but just should I try for her? Last thing should I tell my mom about this pregnancy? I kinda don't want to cause she'll want me to keep the baby we aren't that close but I still care about her opinion. Basically What do I look for in couples? Try for open adoption? Should I even tell my mom about this pregnancy? I'm almost 18 and can't support a second before people start to judge and btw they have the same dad I'm just asking for opinions and ideas cause I don't have anyone to talk to about this at the moment

  • Is fasting and prayer just none stop prayer for 'x' amount of days?

    ... Only stopping to sleep and use the restroom? Or is it more of an off and on prayer but still going on with daily activities?

    -I was born and raised a Christian. -I later became interested in learning about the other religions, they were there and people were happy worshiping in those faiths. -I started my learning by reading about Buddhism and i found it absolutely amazing! Its beautiful ideas and texts changed my life for the better. -Next, Hinduism. I was once again stunned by the beauty, peace, and unity of its teachings. -Now, I'm working my way through the Qur'an and I find it to be a beautiful text, comparable to the Gita, Upanishads, Bible, and Dharmapada. -Today, I consider myself a Baha'i because I feel that all the Prophets are messengers of one God, each of them delivering a new chapter of a long book of God, to different peoples and at different times to fit specifically to those peoples needs. After reading all these texts they have changed my life for the better MY QUESTION: Why don't more people try to look outside of the tiny box that they grew up with, and learn about all the other faiths. Too often do I see people vehemently defending a religion they were raised with, and bashing/condemning all the other Faiths And yes I have read the Bible, twice as a matter of fact.

    I never really understood God, religion, heaven, hell and judgment say so I became an atheist. I have a few questions because I dont want to burn in hell for eternity, so please help me out so I can get into heaven 1) If an atheist lives a clean and good life would he/she go to heaven or are they still sent to hell? 2) If the christian God is the true God then does that mean 66% of the world is going to hell? 3) Does God recognize every religion? if so would he recognize atheism? 4) If I go to hell is there a way to get into heaven after I served some time? 5) Whats heaven like? Do we just walk around naked all day and eat fruits, or would we be sent back to earth with lots of riches? 6) Can you do illegal things in hell like kill people and use drugs? or would Satan tell God on you? 7) Are there really virgins in heaven? If so do other religions get to have fun with them?, or are they only for Muslim men? 8) can Muslims women wear their hijabs in heaven or would God make them take it off? Thanks for reading my questions, please answer them to your best of knowledge because I really wanna go to heave. I would hate to have the flesh burnt off my body for eternity.....it doesn't sound too nice

  • What does the Bible really say about Hell?

    I am being told that it is a place of eternal torment or that it is where the soul dies. I also heard that Hell was a mistranslation in the Bible. Can someone tell me the truth about Hell? Plz give bible verses if possible
