Hello from a seeker :)

Hi all :) My name is Sarah and I'm new here, and new to seeking to gain faith. I wasn't raised in a church and have been a hard atheist for the past 7 or 8 years, so this journey is a long, hard one for me, dealing with the doubts and old ways of thinking that I am accustomed to.

I'd love to get to know people on this board and feel some companionship, as very few people around me are church-going and even fewer are the kind of Christians that I would want to be.

Hi Sarah,

Welcome to the forum! I just joined myself a couple of days ago.

Concerning gaining faith: Hebrews 11 tells us that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. It also says that faith is "...the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for." It is extremely noteworthy, and a surprise to newbies, that the Bible at no time and in no way asks believers to practice a blind faith. This concept is critical to grasp. Primary substance is the Bible itself which has proven itself trustworthy.

Science has benefited from knowledge in the Bible. For example, the ocean streams enabling ships to traverse the oceans quickly were discovered because of a passage in the Bible talking about "...the pathways of the seas."

Just take your new walk with the Lord one step at a time recognizing what the apostle wrote in an epistle that "...He is able to save that which has been entrusted to Him."
