Hi guys. This question has always been bothering me so I thought I should share my thoughts.

When I'm at school all my friends either are baptists or they don't go to church at all or they thing God isn't even real.

Here's the question: Don't you feel like there's almost no one that is a christian at your school? I mean if you go to a Seven day Adventist school, GREAT!! But I go to a public school so usually when there is school events like a talent show it's on Saturday and I can't go!

So i'm just wonder-in' If you are in a public school don't you notice that people who aren't seven day Adventists probably think we are weird? and don't you think that electronics and other stuff is taking over people's faith? I do. I really wish that people weren't going to the tattoo shop and that they got all their other tattoos removed. Don't you think SDA (seven day Adventist) are becoming.. I dunno extinct? Just somethin for you to think 'bout.

well there are lots of Christians in public schools as the term Christian can be used for any church or person who believes in Christ(Catholics, Baptists etc.) of which there are many but as for others thinking us to be weird maybe we are quite different and as for electronics taking over peoples faith well electronics can be used to strengthen or weaken faith it depends on how much you use them and what you use them for and as for SDA's going extinct I don't think so in fact I recently read a statistic that said that the seventh day Adventist church was one of the fastest growing churches in the USA

i've heard the whole fast growing of sda's. my question is: where are they?

like seriously, outside (and even inside sometimes) church it doesnt seem like there is any evidence of sda's. i think that most of them are in, like foreign countries like india and stuff.

My friends don't think I'm weird exactly but they find me... different, they make jokes about it but in friendly banter, like not eating pork and not going to parties. And I'm definitely sure that I'm probably like the only Adventist in my school

I go to a public school and my so called friends think I am really weird and if I try to explain our religion then they just laugh or smirk and sometimes say okay and change the subject. :unsure:

Well, I've definitely heard statistics that kids who go to an Adventist school have a larger chance of staying in the church.

It's sad that so many Christians are leaving the church, I've noticed that in especially young people. We need to pray for people more that they will rely on God more!

IKR! When I pray before I eat lunch they find it kinda weird and when they have birthday parties on Sabbath I can never go.

Here's a list of synonyms for weird: Bizzare, unconventional, crazy, unorthodox, outlandish. We are weird. We go against the customs and all the unspoken "rules" people around us have. You follow someone higher who is totally weird according to the world. Be proud of being weird!

I’ll still be on my knees with my hands lifted ...
... If saying I believe is out of line
If I’m judged cause I’m gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be Guilty ...

I went to A Baptist School for Years!! I loved it and I'm gonna go back soon :woohoo: Anyway, even though I am seventh day Adventist, everyone was nice to me and my friends treated me the same as them!! And Even sometimes they would ask questions about my religion and they didn't think I was weird at all :)

I mean, like I've gone to SDA school all my life... And it's pretty cool. I used to go to a somewhat large SDA school (Considering most SDA schools in my confrence are quite small), and the Non-christian friends I have say that most christians are okay. I mean, they say that some have strict rules and they think that we sometimes waste our time... But I keep telling them it has its perks and is pretty good.
It's mainly one friend that I have that doesn't like christianity as much... But she's working on it, and contributing to our deep Bible conversations quite well ^O^
I remember when I was in grade 3 or 4, I insulted my friend and classmate cause she said she was Catholic. I said "Catholic?! I can't believe I made friends with a Catholic!!" And I made a disgusted face. I feel really terrible for saying that... I shouldn't have said it. I'm really guilty to this day about it... T~T

One of the fastest growing church in the world actually.
Sometimes we worry,
Sometimes we fret.
Sometimes we feel like
We can't move a step.

But God is still with us.
Keep Him in mind.
Trust in Him alway.
He is ever so kind.
