I can tell this thread is gonna bomb with 0 replies but ill try anyway

This is beyond the shit I had as a teenager. I am in an extreme religious crisis. Born and raised Muslim (Egyptian which is 15%Christian. Living in the US). I. I start seriously thinking about converting to Christianity. Yet I still hang on to Islam. I probably read the Quran and the Bible more than 3 times each. On top of that I cant consult with any family members because of obvious reasons.(Extreme tension among me and my parents ruining my relationship indefinitly). If I become Christian. How will I tell them? It will ruin the family. Do I just lie my whole life? Religion or not, how can I live a life cut off from my parents socially? I have no idea where to go from here.

If you become a christian, you cannot lie about it. The bible specifically highlights people who die for their religion, who suffer, who are made slaves, ect.. Self sacrifice is VERY important. If you lie about being a Christian, you will be spitting in the face of God.

That said, if you abstain from converting just because you don't want your family mad at you, you are once again spitting in the face of God.

There are few good options here. Personally, I recommend you convert to orthodoxy. It's the most true to the bible, and unlike Catholicism, its doesn't believe in Papal supremacy (whatever the pope says is law). This way you can be a christian without having to believe that animals have souls, that gay people should marry, ect.

Good luck, anon. Sending prayers. Know that God is by your side, dude.

Pray that the Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will be with you and give you strength. Have an open heart and lay all your worries before God, He will be with you so have faith in Him.

I'd suggest converting at a supportive congregation that you trust and which embodies the holy spirit (has the fruits of the spirit). From there have faith that God will be the bulwark in your life against any hardships that might come. Your parents depending on who they are may seek to prosecute you, so having the support of your brothers and sisters in christ, and God on your side, should help you to withstand that storm when it comes. Know that the world may hate you because it hated Christ first. Its better to have lived a life of earnest faithfulness to God than to have lived a lie. It will be hard, your family might hate you, there will be hardship. Pull through, thousands of your brothers and sisters in christ have suffered worse hardships for loving God than familial excommunication. Things may get extreme or violent so be prepared to find an ex-muslim group or other places to find safety and shelter if it gets very bad.

Pray to God, find christians to pray for you, and have faith that God will be with you in all things. Trust in the Lord.

I hope this helped.
God be with you.

"Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." - Matt 5:10-12

Why shouldn't gay people be allowed to mary each other? I'm not talking about a religious, but a strictly legal marriage, no church involved.
People just want to be happy, it does not affect your life personally.

I take the pantheistic view, so an animal has just as much soul as I do. And just as much as a rock or a cloud does. Doesn't this seem like a much more liberating notion than the human species being the only thing in the cosmos having a soul?

I would convert and not tell them anything. I was also born and raised Muslim (I'm Libyan though not Egyptian) but I didn't really believe in any of it so became Agnostic. I haven't told my mom or dad and don't plan to, there's really no reason. As for whether or not you should become Christian, it's really a question on why you prefer Christianity to Islam or why you believe one is truer then the other. Get out a notepad and write what you agree with, what you disagree with, the differences, and why you think Christianity is what you'd rather be then Muslim. I gope you find your answer though.

Why be Christian over Muslim. I would do my research before becoming or claiming to be anything. Also I would tell my parents to btfo. Coming from a Egyptian American too

Marriage is religious, though. The government tried to offer homosexuals the same thing as married couples but under the name "civil union" instead of "marriage", but the homosexual community rejected it.

The homosexual community wants to destroy Christianity because it condemns them for indulging in sinful acts and forces them to face this reality. So instead of changing themselves to get closer to God, they instead decide to subvert and destroy anything that confronts them with the truth.

Homosexuals on average have many more sexual partners than straight people. It's because their lifestyle is one of bodily pleasure, not one of building a natural relationship. Because of this, they also suffer heavily from a higher suicide rate and a significantly higher probability of catching and spreading STDs. See the book "The Health Hazards of Homosexuality" by Mass Resistance for more (pic related, though this book has been banned by many major retailers. How interesting.)

The point of marriage isn't just to commit to living with someone for the rest of your life. It's to form a spiritual bond between you and your partner. Through God, a married couple is bonded and are of one flesh. It's the example set out by Adam and Eve, who originally were a single entity.

Together, a married couple is able to create life. This is something that a homosexual couple will never be able to do. In this way, even though the married couple will grow old and die, they will still be able to live on through their children, their grandchildren and so on.

The whole "people just want to be happy" and "love is love" are the results of pro-homosexual propaganda that has been pumped through the populace via pop culture since the 90s. See the book "After The Ball" for more information on how this propaganda had been planned out and executed. (Also notice how people who say "love is love" never seem to understand that God is love and that acting through God's will is acting in love.)

No, because it's false and nonsensical. How is that "liberating"?

Humans are the only species that have received the breath of life from God Himself. This granted us our consciousness which emanates from our souls. In the garden, God also granted humans (Adam) dominion over all of nature. So even though we are a part of it, we are encouraged to use it and shape it.

Simply put, out of the three major so-called Abrahamic religions, Christianity is the only one that is in favor of the truth. Remember that Satan is the father of lies. Judaism and Islam both encourage its believers to lie. See "Kol Nidre" and "Taqiyyah" for some examples respective of each.
