Many times at school, work and even when I just switch on the television. I feel as though Christian values are just, well i dunno, presented as uncool or even crazy.
At school I kids, day after day, just mocking religion, but Christianity especially. I see them, I say nothing. I don’t know why, I think it’s because I’m a little scared. I feel as though I’m the only one who has these views. Who’s waiting to get married before having sex. Imagine, the amount of hands that would go up? Just one, over there in the corner, yep only me. I started to read a little bit of the bible everyday, it has given me more confidence so I’ve started to speak up but only in the presence of certain individuals who I feel would kinda already understand my stance. But, most of the time I change the subject
Other times, I feel like I REALLY REALLY want to say things, especially when it comes to science and religion and just basic biblical misconceptions… oh there are so many misconceptions that I would just love to set straight in philosophy class. Moses and Noah are not the same person.But, I get nervous. Writing my arguments down in paper is great, it’s easy for me. I could spend hours just reading around apologetics and witting in support of God: I’m the only kid who bothers to read the religious apologetics wider reading texts. If I can write about my support of a God and other Christian ideals, why can’t I just say it?

Well I struggle with this too. I’m more of a writer and texting is something I feel way safer but I know as Christians we are called to stand out and speak out. I am in the same boat as you. I’m trying to learn too…my dad and other family in Christ tells me to pray and ask God for courage, get into God’s word so I can answer questions people try throwing at me. (Struggling with all of this too -_-lll) and if they don’t believe or slander me for it, then I shouldn’t let it get to me because at least we do our job. Like I said: I’m in the same boat as you so no sweat. God’s gonna stretch the both of us to make us strong.
