    Religious ENFP party! :D C'mon in, fellow believers...

    Come out, come out, wherever you are, fellow believers! Bring your Bibles (or other religious text you subscribe to) if you're so inclined. I have cookies. :D *holds up platter*

    I'm a cradle Catholic and have matured a lot in my faith, growing closer to God over the past few years. Prayer and a diverse faith community of super genuine, supportive friends have made dealing with all the worries and feelings of uncertainty and self doubt stemming from my sensitive, overly analytical ENFP brain SO much easier. It feels so good to know that God is always there, lovin' you unconditionally, no matter how badly you screw up. Can anyone relate?

    Some cool passages (share your faves, please, if you have 'em!)-

    "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
    (Jeremiah 29:11)

    “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me."
    (John 14:1)

    "If God is for us, who can ever be against us?"
    (Romans 8:31)

    "Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.' "
    (Matthew 19:26)

    "Cast your cares on the LORD
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never let the righteous fall."
    (Psalm 55:22)

    "An anxious heart weighs a man down,
    but a kind word cheers him up."
    (Proverbs 12:25)

    "Trust in the LORD and do good;
    Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
    Delight yourself in the LORD;
    And He will give you the desires of your heart."
    (Psalm 37:3-5)


    -----------------------------
    My questions for you guys-
    1. How do you feel God in your life? How do you know he's there for you?
    2. Why is your faith important to you?
    2. How does your ENFP-ness jive with your faith (i.e. it gives you feelings of strength, it conflicts with it, does it feel weird talking to a deity who doesn't immediately talk back, etc.)?

    2. Why is your faith important to you?

    Because existence makes no sense and the mystery is fun to discover?

    3. How does your ENFP-ness jive with your faith (i.e. it gives you feelings of strength, it conflicts with it, does it feel weird talking to a deity who doesn't immediately talk back, etc.)?

    It'll take me awhile to compile my favourites (Because it starts at Genesis 1:1 and ends at Revelation 22:21).

    But 2 great ones are Romans 15 and Matthew 7 ^^

    ENFP - The Inspirers

    I'm a religious nut and my dad is a preacher. I wouldn't call myself a cradle Christian though.

    1. How do I feel God in my life. I do believe the Holy Spirit leads me plus when I do something I know I'm suppose to do I feel a sorta overwhelming peace.
    2. Faith is where all of life's meaning ultimately comes from. If there is no God our life has no more meaning the any other animal's.
    3. I tinker with my faith a lot. I don't like to just accept everything and I'm always trying to dig deeper to understand God, truth and Christianity better. I do tend to tinker with my faith, but stay fairly true the the main tenets. For instance, I believe in the traditional view of Jesus, but I have a lot of doubts about the idea of experiencing Hell eternally. I'm always looking for some underlying truth or principle that I can apply to my own life and help those around me. Actually, the more I understand the better I am at helping people so that has actually been a surprise for me.

    1. How do you feel God in your life? How do you know he's there for you?
    Like Pizal stated, the Holy Spirit lets me know God's near. There is this great sense of inner peace. He revels himself in the people around me and the events that follow.

    2. Why is my faith important to you?
    My faith keeps me going with a strong,grounded purpose from day to day. Without it, what would be the reason to carry on? It gives me a relationship that will last, a goal I can strive toward (spreading healing to others), and a peace in the chaos that is my mind.


    3. How does your ENFP-ness jive with your faith (i.e. it gives you feelings of strength, it conflicts with it, does it feel weird talking to a deity who doesn't immediately talk back, etc.)?

    I feel that being an ENFP has made me want to know more and more about God (curiosity). He/She talks back,but not always in ways that are obvious at first. I've lived through enough hardships to understand that. When I was younger I remember going through a dry spell in my faith where I felt like I was completely abandon. I never was alone, thank God.

    Romans 5:3-4

    Tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance, character, and character, hope.


    Not religious, just like the quote.

    1. How do you feel God in your life? How do you know he's there for you?

    Now, my attachment to Christianity itself is more oriented toward the teachings of Christ and the lessons within the New Testament, though I myself am a deist. God is always there, He's always present and always watching over his creation... creating more, exploring more and giving us the ability to continue to explore such things. There's so much out there that is just magnificent to witness. He's always there, He's always reliable and always truthful in His love and justice.

    2. Why is your faith important to you?

    It is that final step toward really becoming something more than yourself. It breaks out of what's in front of us and what we perceive as life itself, when in reality, faith can give us strength when none is found and logic itself cannot bring you to where you ought to be. It is one of the most powerful gifts we have and to not intelligently exercise it is to ignore such a brilliant gift.

    2. How does your ENFP-ness jive with your faith (i.e. it gives you feelings of strength, it conflicts with it, does it feel weird talking to a deity who doesn't immediately talk back, etc.)?

    I get excited talking about my faith and my beliefs. Many I know disagree with me, but that's okay. God speaks to others in different ways, and I won't try to make them speak to Him in different ways. If He doesn't respond, there's a reason for it. If He does, there's a reason. As an ENFP, I could talk for hours without signs of stopping all about my beliefs and my morals, for they're exceedingly important to me. Being around those that are intolerant of them can be demoralizing and tiring, but it certainly doesn't stop me. It's hard to shake what cannot be shook by mortals alone.

    1. How do you feel God in your life? How do you know he's there for you?
    This is really hard to put into words I think.. I could try to give specific examples but the easiest way to put it is by quoting the Bible:
    1 John 4:7-8 "Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love."
    That pretty much sums it up for me. I see and experience God through love. In all the individual examples of times I've felt closest to God, that is what it comes down to.

    2. Why is your faith important to you?
    Well because it has to be, really. I'll quote C.S. Lewis. "Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important."

    2. How does your ENFP-ness jive with your faith (i.e. it gives you feelings of strength, it conflicts with it, does it feel weird talking to a deity who doesn't immediately talk back, etc.)?
    Fairly well, mostly. But it is mentally exhausting. I remember when I was very young (probably 3rd grade-ish), I cursed myself "for being smart" because I had begun questioning christianity and the existence of God and it frightened me at the time. I've always been a firm believer in Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." I believe that questioning my faith has been very beneficial because I did ask and I did find. My faith was only ever reaffirmed and strengthened when I questioned.
    "does it feel weird talking to a deity who doesn't immediately talk back?" Yes it really does, actually. I wish it didn't and it's something I've wanted to work on. It's a matter of humility towards God that I truly wish I didn't lack.
