    religion: agnostic-Christian/ non-devotional(basically I believe the existance of god cannot be known for certain, but it can be reasonably believed)
    World view: naturalist (There is only the natural and the unknown soon to be natural) Non-literalist (much of the old testament, in my opinion, is meant to be taken non literally. I do not hold a position that it is inherently reliable and historically accurate) *I understand these views seem contradictory, but I can assure you that they are not*
    Testimony:
    I grew up in a Christian home and was a "christian". I don't even know if I can say that because I wasn't that religious at all. It was more of a cultural feeling kinda like being a Se-hawks fan. I was bullied in middle school so my mother decided to home-school me for two years. She set me up for a Christian homeschooling program which I enjoyed and learned a lot. Faith through learning really helped me find my way. Unfortunately all that changed when I went back to public school. I got dumber, lost my way, and got addicted to some-stuff.(think what do teenagers like?) This perpetual cycle continued until I was 17 and I asked "what is it all about". I recalled the time when I was 12-13ish and I asked the same question. Both times I affirmed god's existence and decided to follow the faith. The only difference was when I was 17 and I chose a slightly different route. I also had many questions about my religion that were brought up by my atheist friend. Oh ya I also went through a "the Illuminati is real phase" which was brought on by "thevigilantchristian". He was a nice guy...just wrong on some things. Anyway everything changed when I went to college. I realized that my current mostly faith based and conspiracy theory position was not reasonable. There were also so many questions that my ancient history teacher brought up. So I decided to rationalize my faith and I was successful. Now I'm 20 I've been able to logically answer many of the objections to Christianity.
