i have been on for about 3 yrs.  i used high doses for 2 months during this time, but mostly a very stable and mid range level.  ussually around 250-500mg test every 8 days or tren 75mg eod.  its just been so freakin long im afraid everything has shut down.  bbing sucks you in and keeps you on.  now that im out i wanna clean up.  i know i would probably need tons of PCT maybe for months.  i am just debating taking the long road to normality or just maintaining my own test therapy.

does anyone else feel like they have no voice?
i have written to my reps and heard nothing. 
vote A or B and you still get the same old shit.
i hate the direction this country is going and i cant do a damn thing about it. 
cant stop the machine. 
does anyone know of any forums or websites that point in this direction? 

i realize government is needed and should be set-up to serve its citizens, but i feel far from that. 
congress cant decide what to do with war or illigals, but they can quickly decide on a 8 million $ gym upgrade!!!!  wtf!!!!

loco- i disagree
i think athiests need to share what they believe because it is rational and it urks them to see people blindly follow fairy tales.  its like seeing an idiot in the gym doing 1/4 squats with x5 too much weight.  you want to share what you know is right. 

now, i still dont know what i believe, but im not athiest.

homer77, have you tried getting on your knees and sincerely praying to God that you want to feel the presence of HIs Holy Spirit?   Do you usually feel the Holy Spirit when you pray?  If not, have you ever?
 especially if there is no interpreter.  But I have a good friend whose husband says he has a "prayer language" and I have no reason to doubt him.  It's interesting.  We shouldn't "put God in a box" but I guess I just need to learn more about it.


yes i have.  i have always felt like i was doing something wrong.  as i said i was raised in a christian house.  church 3 times a week!  never felt the holy spirit.  i have felt bthe A/C turn on during convienient times during service.  and the whole prayer language thing is crap.  doubt it!  i have learned more than most people learn about christianity.  not only have i learned the doctrine, but the stupid social aspects as well.

religion seems to be the backbone of most societies around the world.  but they all differ.  still i say - who is right and who is wrong?  i keep digging into this topic and what i mostly find is one sect or religion trying to disprove the other.  the basics are that historical data is not 100% sound. 
i believe in G-d.  i had a very long dispute about it in a college philosophy class.  the philisophical writtings both for and against a G-d were both very deep and well thought, but reading about st. thomas aquinas and his "unmoved mover" made things clear to me. 
so, how do we pray or follow this G-d? 
i have also been looking at the athiest views.  they try to disprove everything with science.  they make valid points, but remember we cant comprehend everything.  we exist in time and space.  There could be so much more to existance than that.  i hae trouble understanding that the universe never ends?Huh  G-d is infinant and has no relation to time.  we are stuck in our little minds way of experiencing life. 
anyway,  the quest for truth continues.....

loco-  i agree with the agenda in the movie, but they do bring up some insightful things.  i am going to continue to research all the ideas in the movie on my own.  i am perticularly interested in the astrology related to different historical saviors and prophets.  i do find it hard to believe the inside job thing.  what happened to the family members who died that day on the flights?  were they made up?  i do think that the powers that be have an agenda to better themselves.  imperialism- the dark side!!!!
anyway that was not the purpose of this thread.  its faith.
so i started from the beginning of the bible.  i already have questions.  in ch 1 god created everything and on the 6th he made man.  later in ch2 it goes into adam.  now was man made 1st and then adam made to tend the garden?  cause that would make sense.  later after cain killed able cain said he could not wonder the earth because people would kill or harm him.  now if adam was first what people would harm him?!!!!!!   any bible scholars out there? 

and i do fu@# enough!!!!  my wife is very giving  Smiley

i had a fairly long phone conversation with my wifes jewish friend last night.  she shared her faith and their pov with me.  it was refreshing to hear.  she shared one point that was very nice.  i said i could not stand how people push their religion and how they kill over it.  if you are not one of us you need to die or change!!!  the jews do not accept convert (orthadox).  they dont push or force their religion because they are suppose to be a guide to the world who were chosen by God (in which i do believe).  we we talked about the differnt way we were raised and differences in our faiths (or my new lack of).  it was funny how i knew much about the new test and some of the old, but she was tearing me up on the old test.  anyway i learned alot and i may be researching their faith more.  i actually stayed up until 2am last night thinking.  things like...if i deny religion (or jesus) how can i possibly celebrate christmas?  could i really take such a great childhood event away from my son?  actually it is a great time of year, but i guess its the feeling of family and fun?

Questioning my faith........thats something ive been doing for a while, Homer, im on the same exact page as you when you talk about "SPEAKING IN TONGUES", that just makes no sense to me either. But the one thing, that just caught my attention that you said was '' The teachings of the bible or any book of faith was written by man". MAN, YOU STOLE THAT SAME BELIEVE OUT OF MY HEAD. i absolutely agree with you on that. and just too let everyone know, I WAS RAISED CATHOLIC, I WENT TO A CATHOLIC GRADE SCHOOL FOR 9 YEARS, AND WENT TO CHURCH 2 TIMES A WEEK.
good to know there are others like me out there.  i think making this thread has just made me even more confused?!  i really dont know what to think.  i wanna talk with my pastor, but thats a bias view.  God, i know your out there someowhere.  just tell me how to live and whats the deal with the afterlife!   and loco, im not attacking you or telling you you are wrong.  i dont know who is right or wrong and i dont think anyone has the authority to say who is. 
loco- i ahve wanted the power of god to lay me out on revival days and not once.  i felt the pastor push to take me down, but no power of god.

Hi  homer77!  It's okay to question your faith.  I see that you were raised in church and in a Christian home.  So was I.  So when did you become a Christian? 

I was raised like you, but it wasn't until I was about 15 that I truly believed in Jesus Christ and thus became a Christian.  At that point, Jesus changed my life.  Before that, I was mean, angry, self centered, bitter and not very good to other people, including my parents.  I didn't mind being like that and I did not feel guilty about it.  But when I believed in Jesus, He changed me and made me a new person.  Though I am far from perfect now, everyone who new me before then noticed the difference, that I had become a new person.  I wasn't even trying to change and I was not expecting to change, but Jesus changed me. 

Not only that, but since then, I have experienced many hardships in my life.  I have lost loved ones who were very good people.  I have had loved ones close to me get very sick.  I have experienced financial uncertainty.  I have been laughed at, ridiculed and insulted for my faith in Jesus.  But through it all, Jesus was there, giving me peace, joy, hope and strength.  Jesus has always been there helping me grow spiritually. 

I have also seen Jesus in the life of other Christians around me.  People are quick to point out the bad Christians, or the so called "Christians" who are not Christians at all, or they are quick to point out the faults of good Christians.  But I am thankful that I have experienced the life of very good Christians in my life, including my parents.  They all have been role models and good examples to me.

I suggest you pray and ask God to strengthen your faith.  After that, I suggest that you continue to study the Bible, it's origins and history.  Read about the dead sea scrolls, Bible archeology, fulfilled Bible prophecy, the historicity of Jesus, the accuracy of the Gospels, the history of Israel, America's founding fathers, etc.  It all comes down to faith, but the more you study, the more you'll find out that history, archeology and science all support our faith in the God of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob, and in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died for our sins.

homer77,
I have been praying for you since I first read your post.  There are other Christians on this board who are praying for you too.  God bless you and may Jesus Christ strengthen your faith!

ok,
i immidiatly noticed that you said at 15yrs old you became christian.  im not trying to be negative, but at 15 i was the same way.  most kids are.  its just the age.  i was baptised in 4th grade, but didnt really make the adult decision until about 21.  twice since then i have had my faith truely tested.  im now 29.  this time being the worst.  i do believe in God.  the philosopher st thomas aquinas solidified that with the "unmoved mover" who started the universe.  i just took a step back and said who is right and who is wrong.  most religions seem to have the same moral basics and ways to live.  ALL writtings are by man.  and why hasnt anything been added?  why do great stories not exist today.  just because this is what was introduced to me as a child - does it mean i blindly follow?  i think this all started when my wife was telling me about her orthadox jew friend at nursing school.  i looked up the basic principals of their faith and started wondering these things.

that was some movie!  watched the whole thing.  i want to research the sources now. 
15  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Religious Debates & Threads / Re: questioning my faith on: June 29, 2007, 03:58:31 PM
thanks,
i agree with the idea that almost all religions are basically the same.  why cant people get over their petty differences and try to see that.  i was amazed that someone acyually agreed with my views on the bible. 
16  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Religious Debates & Threads / questioning my faith on: June 28, 2007, 06:00:49 PM
hi,
i have been dealing with this issue for some time now.   i was raised "born again" christian since the age of 2.  I have learned much throught the years.  I have watched how the church is run, how people act, the teachings of the bible, and the whole social interaction/ production of the church.  i enjoy learning and sharing all points of view.  i see that there are many faiths of the world and everyone thinks they are right mostly because they were raised that way.  there are converts who are trying to find their way or faith too. who's to say who is right and who is wrong?!  why do people die everyday in the name of faith?!  i do believe that there is an allmighty power or god who created everything- the unmoved mover (st thomas aquinas).  maybe god is just an engraved part of my personality or subconsious that my parents put there.  they would freakin flip if they heard this.  then again i have been sticking them with tough faith questions for years.  the toughest one was speaking in tongues.  evry week i got to church and immidiatly there are people speaking in tongues.  in the bible it says thjat the holy spirit consumed them and they were actually speaking real languages.  what i hear each week is mubbling and tongue twisting blaber.  its non sense.  is the holy spirit really making them do that as soon as they walk into service.  my parents responce was "its just our prayer language".  and what exact language is that?!  ohh shatabababa ba da - umcomadadadada.  sorry- i have watched and learned how people fall into the act and group think. 
the teachings of the vivle or any book of faith was written by man.  how do we really know they were inspired by god?  the creator of the mormon faith was inspired.  have you ever heard that story?! 
the bible- old testament- i truely feel they are tall tales.  they were not written until hundreds to thousands of years later.  over they years stories get greater and greater.  and who knows what the catholic church did to the bible during the middle ages and the reformation.  they were to power in europe and people in power would do any thing to make things go their way. 

wow, i am ranting now.  any one else share my frustration? 
dont go attacking me now.  its just whats been battling in my head.

you had a strain.  i have had many strains.  a tear literally feels like you are tearing raw meat.  it feels quite disturbing.  mine tore 3 weeks back.  there is a big difference.  i am up to 5lbs DB's now.  is that light enough for you?  MRI shows all the scar tissue forming.  and yes, i was black and purple all over my pits and pec.  nasty looking!  you'll be fine.  just ice and rest it for 2 weeks.  since you didntr do that at first.
