Well... is is church to protestants? Don't know.
Only because there is food involved afterwards. And I am not participating, just chilling out in the kiddies room.

Still planning Europa trip. It is taking waaay too long. But I got some CS offers, which is good and I also secured some places to stay along the way. I am getting there.

I also went for the first time to an Ikea. Now I want a house to decorate it with Ikea stuff.
Instead got some pastry sh*t and then my crazy aunt (who tagged along) gave me the money I spent there as a "birthday gift because you weren't back home last year".
Let me give you some background on this woman: she was not talking to either one of her kids, they hated her, she got divorced and made her ex's life impossible, she met her gandson when he was about 6 months old, she managed to get on no speaking terms with my mom. She managed to get in a fight with

My grandma JUST when she got out of the hospital and needed help with EVERYTHING (was it casual? I think not).
The woman is seriously cray-cray.
I was a bit weary when I heard she was going to be visitng at the same time as me, but she has been managable.
I hope it is because she realized that at this pace she was going to be left alone and not because she has an angle. And that she is not trying to buy me off.
I feel wierd.


In other news: the internship is done. He didn't pay me but he gave me a bix of chocolates. And then I wold him if he needed reinforcements for Christmas, I was happy to work there. Lets hope he understood that I expected to get paid for my work this time around.

I've got no idea if the term might change.
And I used to be protestant.
But then I decided I didn't believe in a conscious God that let bad things happen and not intervene. And I don't trust the church.
And my dad is atheist and my mom goes every once in a while to church

I was raised Methodist; that's why I thought that was funny.

i was raised catholic, but went to a variety of Christian churches.

one of the main differences is that some protestant churches believe certain people are predetermined to be saved, while others believe in a second baptism. it's all over the place, really.

Sooo... you can do evil and still be saved because that is your destiny?

I think it's more along the lines of you might as well do evil, because your destiny is an eternity of Hell...

Yes- - if one doesn't make it onto the 'saved' list, they may as well do evil, because there's no way they are going to be saved...

Baptist churches are supposed to be famous for their after service feasts, but how come every time I'm dragged to one, they are convieniently out of the feastdom.
What kind of hoodwinking...

My mother's church does that as well. But they go a step further with doughnuts, and pasteries and giant Snicker bars and sodas. Its not a small congregation, their brunch budget must be insane.

Ive been predestined to bop cowdung upside the head.

Yeah, I was raised in a Calvinist denomination (Presbyterian) and precisely what "predestination" means in the context of being saved or not is STILL a huge debate.

Even with old-school preachers (visiting ones, etc.) I've never heard "you might as well do evil because you're destined for Hell anyway."
Though I have some extended family who are Primitive Baptist, and I can't say the same for them.

In any case, that particular interpretation of predestination is pretty rare these days.

(Also the entire predestination/free will paradox in general is part of what started my questioning of church doctrine when I was a teenager. So. For whatever that's worth, I guess.)
