I hear the two older generations say "America was Christian back then". But the older I get, the more I believe it wasn't.

I'm thinking about starting a topic in the Debate section on this...if it doesn't already exist.

Faith and society have both changed. Historically it’s probably fair to say that faith influenced society more than the reverse, but we definitely see the opposite now.

Christian faith, where it even exists, is often a watered-down mishmash of beliefs that is pretty hollow at best, or outright heretical at worst.

There’s seemingly very little conviction anymore. I think the idea of faith and Christianity are appealing to many because they get a sense of belonging, but that’s often accompanied by nonsense like universalism and other warm fuzzy feeling theology that are completely at odds with scripture.

I was a fan ever since she appeared on the last two seasons of Are You Afraid of the Dark, which occurred around the turn of the millennium. Of the five members of The Midnight Society on that show at the time, she and actress Elisha Cuthbert were the only two women present. But I liked Vanessa's character's stories on the show better than Elisha's overall. ^-^

Anyways, you know me; always find any excuse to bring up some lady I find cute. All you had to do was post
Jeez! How have I never heard of this girl? She's awesome!
... and there I go, without even a hint as to who you were talking about, Miss Chelsea. ^_^

Oh yeah! I know who she is now. I used to watch that show when I was young. It's all good. You made me smile, so I appreciate that!

I'm going to do a bread & water fast in the time before this.
It's going okay. I still drink coffee & eat nuts & crackers. But both sparingly & have been good avoiding other foods & drinks.
I like eating a wide variety of good & delicious food, especially meat, so even what I"m doing is helping, I think.

That's exciting! You'll have to share here!

We pray for Saucy & his finals. They are not always easy. We ask that he does well, & he does not stress over it & can find peace & wisdom. We know he is on the path you want him to be as your child, that it will lead him to where he can glorify you fuller.

"Are You Afraid of the Dark" is on Paramount Plus! I watched it a lot during my college years. lol

I liked watching that show when I was growing up. My favorite episode was the one where the high school girl was haunted by a teenager from the 70s. The ghost was having the girl travel back in time to stop her death from happening.

I don’t think I’ve seen that episode!
