struggles and weaknesses (aka scary stuff)

I wanted to talk about something that I don't feel like is talked about enough. It's easier for me to get my thoughts out through writing, but I decided to go with a little more of a scarier route -- a video. So here's a video where I talk about some things I've struggled with. One specifically was hard for me to talk about, because I don't talk about it with other people much. But I want to be more open and honest so here I am. Sorry if it's a long video, I didn't even feel like I time to talk about everything.

If you watched the video, I want to say that yes, I do think that to being a Christian involves believing. I also think that to fully live life you've got to be able to believe. While believing is a part of this Christian faith, it's not only belief. There's scientific evidence that a creator made the world.  I've seen evidence of people's lives changed because of Jesus. One of the biggest evidences has been in my own personal journey with God -- I know that I'm not lying about the changes in my heart, and so I'm either crazy or Jesus is working in my life.

There's a lot of things I struggle with besides doubt. Just sayin'. I'm not exactly sure if doubting is considered a sin or not, but if it isn't, I do sin. I'm not proud of it and it's ugly, so doubting isn't my only weakness.

And lastly, I wanna say that I'm 17 years old and I don't know everything. My ideas or beliefs could change, but I always want to be looking for truth. So if you don't agree with everything or even anything that I said, that's okay because I'm not saying that I'm 100% sure I'm right. I've still got a lot more to explore and learn.
