Your statement clearly implied the present, not the past. So it is a lie.You did. Therefore it's not a lie. Just saying. Seem to recall you wearing it like a badge of honour in the past.
Money, job, sex, hobbies, etc...Anyway. I'm intrigued. What religion do I have that I don't admit to as you're so good at mind reading ?
They can all become gods...and everyone has one or more. Where you put your time/treasure is your god. Everyone worships something.
You have missed one key element...sincerity. Praying doesn't make anyone a Christian or save your soul. Someone who has truly accepted Christ is changed such that they would never consider stealing a bike. And if you start out with a premeditated plan of stealing believing that all you have to do is pray for forgiveness then you haven't been changed. Just like Baptism is not what saves, one has to be Baptized in the heart/soul first.Religion in a nut shell:
BTW, God answers every prayer...but God is interested in what you need rather than what you want. So, sometimes the answer is no.
