Steps in Teenage Christianity By America Alitzel Figueroa “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” - Matthew 10:28 I have been going to church since I was five years old. I was baptized before I even knew how to speak. My mom later found Jesus and switched our religion to Christianity. I grew up knowing that the bible was the only truth. My mother, so young, reserved, and quiet taught me what it would be like to be a follower of Christ. I entered high school, a Christian girl who met an atheist. I didn’t know I could be hated for believing in God or judged because I didn’t know being gay was right. The church has said that throughout life someone will judge and ignore me, but we must go on and keep talking about how great God is. I then asked these questions to myself: What if I began to make my own decisions without God’s approval? Will I be a sinner then? I came to the realization that I’d have to make decisions on my own at some point.
