My Christian School

Most of the time its just that people don't understand where I'm coming from. I'm a pretty open person, and I don't hold back much of who I am. I like to be true and real. But sometimes its as if no matter how much I explain what I mean or what I believe people look at me weird. They consider me a extremist, or someone that takes things just a tad too seriously.

The number of people who COMPLETELY understand me, inside and out, can be counted with the 10 fingers on my hands. Which is probably why I've learned to withhold personal, theological, or deeply spiritual matters from most people. So I suppose you could say that I'm not being 100% myself 100% of the time. And that's where we get back to the fact that people don't understand me.

If I can be completely honest with you I feel most misunderstood at my school. I go to a Christian school, but even in the midst of the Christian atmosphere I still feel like I'm on a completely different page spiritually.

  • Why at my Christian school is the bible looked on as "boring"
  • Why at my Christian school is Worship Team close to the bottom of the priority list
  • Why at my Christian school is prayer group considered totally lame, and why are we praying in a room at the back corner hidden away from the rest of the school?
  • Why at my Christian school is Youth Group the last place you want to spend your time?
  • Why at my Christian school do people dislike Church?
  • Why is Harry Potter OK, but The Left Behind Series is not?
  • Why at my Christian school was "See you at the pole" not even planned while other Public schools in the G.T.A. have been getting their Christian students together for some serious praying?

These are basically just some questions I have because I am totally confused sometimes.
