Lost in the Darkness
Old World Underground
I wasn't raised Christian, my country is mostly all atheist, and the churches here are all liberal, "refugees welcome" and "give us money for starving blacks" types and so on. On top of that my mother is likely a witch, and in both my family lines I have great grandfathers who were high ranking Freemasons. If I understand things correctly, that means I've inherited a number of generational curses.
So, I'm not exactly in the best position in terms of proper understanding of the fundamentals of Christianity.
I'd like you guys to explain things from the ground up for me, how to pray, repent, confess, and generally I need to know what I'm supposed to be doing.
Which Bible I'm supposed to read would also be helpful, because I've seen you guys mention that the ones common in the West are heretical.
I'll give a little background here so you're not totally in the dark as to where I stand.
I've no doubt whatsoever about the divinity of Christ, His resurrection and sacrifice. But I don't know any of the history and so on. I have a very strong pull in me that causes me to hate anti-Christians and defend Christians and Christianity even though I don't know how to practice it. I became this way in my teens as I learned that the incessant sleep paralysis, hallucinations and lucid nightmares I suffered since my first memories were demonic attacks. I asked a Christian, he told me they were demons and explained how to end the attacks. The demons fled with the name of Christ, I was sold on the existence of God, and that I was in His debt for saving me. No doubts whatsoever.
(If any of you experience demonic attacks (sleep paralysis is one of the most common) simply command the demon(s) to leave by invoking the name of Jesus Christ. They are terrified of Him.
I hope that helps one of you like it did for me.)
Since then I've been mostly picking up bits and pieces as time goes on, but seeing as how we might actually be hunted down and murdered in the Fall; I want to at least be able to ask for forgiveness and make my peace with God before I die. I saw hell in those nightmares, I don't want to end up there.
So long story short.
I would like to be saved, but I don't know how.
Sorry for writing about my problems to all of you. I know you don't know me, and this isn't a great thing to be doing, but I can't think of anyone else to ask with the churches around me being closed and them being boomer-liberal even if they weren't.
I also think that what I've asked from you guys should be general enough to make this an unofficial "Learning Christianity For Dummies" thread so that the thread doesn't run afoul of the moderation rules. That is to say that this thread can be used to post any introduction to Christianity content ignore me to you hearts content if my talking about my problems to strangers thing is too repulsive for you.
All right, that all.
Please help me out bros.
