...when you first truly believed in God/Gods/FREEDO?
...when you first went to a religious event? (like church, temple, FREEDO's house)

Does the discrepancy between the two give you pause?

Both were too early for me to remember. They had me drinking that kool-aid from my sippy cup.

Didn't.

A wedding probably.

At about 7:30 pm on December 8th, 1979, God let me know he was my creator. From that time on, I knew Him everytime He came into my mind to work on my flesh.

A random deity? Probably 10 or 11. My God? 14.

First religious event? I was actually baptized BEFORE I really was I Christian, so I'm saying 7.

I first truly believed in God when I was 13. My first religious event was when I was 6.
I don't pause between the 7 year gap becuase church is not what saves you; Jesus does.

Been Christian all my life, first time I actually thought about it and legitimately believed in God instead of being "Yup I'm Christian and I guess I believe this this and this" without truly meaning it, was probably when I was about 13-14.

My first religious experiences were certainly at home.

I probably went to church / Sunday school before I learned to walk & talk.

I was always curious, and loved to explore the world.

- I was probably 11 when I chose faith / discipleship for myself.
- 13 when I was baptized
- 21 when I had my first call to pastoral work
- 22 when I left med school to train to be a pastor

There have been lots of milestones along the way.

Every year gets better than the one before.

1) 4, stopped shortly before 5

2) Never.
I can manage my anger if people can manage their stupidity.

As in I was religious for about 8-10 months.

And unless weddings count, none.

What god are you talking about? The god of Abraham such as the one the Jews worshiped or the false god, Jesus, the one that Christians worship. Both are just names that are worshiped because sinners are blocked from the true invisible Christ. The Jews were waiting for their physical "messiah" and now Christians are waiting for their physical "messiah".

The true "messiah" will never be seen by the human flesh because it's invisible and will always be invisible to man.

Probably around 13 or 14. Then I reconsidered that and decided that there was probably no old man with a flowing white beard in the sky.

Then around 16 or 17 I decided that there was indeed an old man with a flowing white beard in the sky, and here I am arguing for His existence on a debate site in which I am gradually losing interest.
