Do you talk about your faith or being a Christian on FB or other sites?

Most definitely. I tend to make other Christian friends that way, as well as being available to minister to those that may be hurting and need someone to pray with.

I used to be, but after kinda losing my faith last year and pretty much hating God, this is all kinda fresh and new to me again so I don't really say much on FB atm. It's not because I don't want people to know, it's because I'm not ready yet to either defend myself and my faith or to hear other opinions. I'm still "weak" if that makes sense. Hearing from someone else about alternative theories is not something I am ready for quite yet.

I do mention things about going to church, etc - but anything deeper than that I don't tend to talk about.

Yes, def!!! Most of my friends on FB are my church family anyway so it's easy but even if they weren't, I'd still be very open.

Liza, I def understand where you are coming from. It may help to add a lot of Christian friends (maybe your church family) as a support system so if that EVER did come up... it just might make it easier on you & make you more comfortable. Just a thought.

I talked to my sister about it at dinner a couple nights ago. I have been trying so hard to really change my life and become the person I feel should represent Christians and although I've made some good strides I've got a long way to go. I do have some friends from church but they rarely are on FB. I don't really know anyone else from church personally - one of the drawbacks of going to a mega church - it's not a small "family" the people I know were the ones from my small group and we disbanded a few months ago b/c of a misunderstanding...we really kinda just split down the middle And Chris and I lived 30 minutes away from everyone else and it was really hard for us to go to every group meeting especially during the winter.

Yes I am very open about it, I wont hide my thoughts or feelings on my beliefs. I figure if someone doesnt like my thoughts or beliefs they are just not on the right path and I pray for them to find the path. I try not to get into debates about my beliefs, to me its not a debatable topic, theres no grey area, you either believe or you dont and with that they know the rest of the story.

I am getting there but not open on facebook as much as I could be. It does come up in Love and sex sometimes but not on my playroom board.

I don't hide it and am not afraid to post what I feel on FB...but usually my posts are about the kids and life in general.

Yes! All of my friends on FB are friends in real life. And I hope that I always walk the walk so that they never question if I am a Christian. Most of them are Christians as well. I have been very blessed to have such wonderful people to call friends.
