Hello everyone! I'd just like to introduce myself and where I stand with my faith currently.
I will try my best to make it brief and not sound like this is a online-dating service lol.
I am a serb born in Croatia, but we left our wonderful country at my age of 3. As a serb, my traditions and religion will be centered heavily on Orthodox christianity, though I was not christened at a young age . However, with many reasons (too much to explain now) my family and I are not what you'd call active orthodox, but rather attend an apostolic church (even though my parents taught me to cross myself after prayer etc) With much of this protestant way of thinking put into my head, I thought I was saved at the start of this year. The whole time I felt insecure and not at home with this idea of salvation and the way a *protestant* christian should live, think and breathe. I went to a baptist church a few times, and most recently I attended a pentocostal church for 2-3 months with my friend. Seeing much of this new age worship and way of praising/living for God, I just never felt I could connect to this and strongly disagreed to much of what I see in these churches. To make it short, with much thought, prayer and study of the orthodox church and faith,I recently realised I cannot at all call myself a protestant christian. The most simple reason I feel this way is the whole time I thought I was saved etc. I had this small desire and interest for the orthodox church. I will be attending an serbian orthodox church with my father and his friend in two weeks on a saturday night and sunday morning, I really hope I have an awesome experience and this is where God wants me.
Im looking forward to posting and getting to know everyone here!Â
