Hello and Happy Saturday!

Thank you Vincent Enlund/VikingJack for your very interesting and unique interview last week. I really enjoyed learning more about the Asatru faith. Thanks for sharing with us Vincent!

Today we have a new interview so please welcome Malwina.
Malwina is a Christian and I think you'll enjoy her interview as well!

1) What religion do you practice?
I am a christian

2) Are you a convert/revert or were you raised within this religion? If you converted, what did you need to do to convert? And what did you practice prior to converting?
I was a catholic but now I am in the protestant church.
When I was a catholic I never really believed in God, I was just practicing a religion- rituals, ceremonies but I met people who told me about the living real God interested in my life and I believed in Jesus

3)Within your religion are there degrees of observance (ie. Orthodox,conservative, moderate, liberal)? What are the defining differences between the degrees of observance?
God is not religion. God is a living Person and He wants to have a close relationshp with His children, He wants us to know HIM-
people who don't know God - they make up religion and all kinds of rituals, bows and ceremonies

4)Within your religion what degree of observance are you ((ie. Orthodox,conservative, moderate, liberal)? Why did you choose this degree of observance?
the answer is the same as in number 3

5)What is the Afterlife within your religion? For example: what happens when a person dies? Are there places for reward/punishment? (such as a Heaven/Hell concept)
here on the earth we have the only chance to choose where we will spend our eternity.
There are only 2 ways: you either believe in Jesus and in what He did for us on the Cross or you reject Him.
The Bible says in John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"
God sent Jesus to save us. We all were given salvation, but the salvation is ONLY in Jesus.
Acts 4:12 says: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
There is no one else who can save us but Jesus
for muslims Cross is a symbol of death and failure but for christians the cross is the place of VICTORY because there on the Cross Jesus defeated the devil, death, sin and curse and He was raised from the dead and all those who believe in Him and in what He did will be saved, because God placed salvation in His Son - in Jesus Christ.

Look what the Bible says: "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

God manifest in flesh. Who manifest in flesh? Jesus Christ,
that is why all other religions are false and they only want to destruct people and deceive them (influenced by the devil) because salvation is only in Jesus, the Son of God.

6) In your opinion, does everyone make it into heaven/paradise? If they do not, why?
everyone CAN go to heaven because God gave this chance to everyone but only those who follow Jesus and believe in His atonement will be saved

7) What makes your religion a good fit for you?
because all others are false religions and what is MOST IMPORTANT: in all religion people try to save themselves by good works
but christianity is the only to believe we have a Savior. Jesus came to save us, He already died for us, He already saved us but this salvation is not automatic - it has to be accepted and received-
also only in christianity God is a living God,
allah is dead and not interested in people (he is above that)
but God the true God LOVES us, He cares for us, He heals us: our emotions, our sicknesses, He comforts us, He gives us solutions to problems, He wants to bless us in every practical way

8) What are your holy days and what do you do to celebrate them?
every day is for God

9) Do you consider people of other faiths to be your friends?
Jesus taught that we should not only love those who love us but we should love even our enemies.
God is love and we should love everyone.
People from other religions are not my enemies, they simply are deceived and they dont know the truth

10) Would you ever join people of another faith to celebrate one of their holy days? Please explain why?
why waste time for something that you know is false and deception?
I can visit people from other religions at home but being a part of what is not from God? What for? But that doesn't mean I don't like them

11) What are your thoughts on the burka, and Shariah Law?
I think that the devil hates women more than men and that is why he chose mohamed who despised women to write quran and there he abased women to the max.
In the times of Jesus only prostitutes covered themselves for shame and
besides, it is nonsense because all evil thoughts and behavior come from the heart and there is no covering.
You can have a dress code but if you don't change the nature and the heart then you focus only on the external.
A sinful man will "undress" a woman with his eyes even is she is all covered up, but a man changed in the heart will turn his eyes away from the sight that offends him.
Jesus changed our nature, our hearts which is the source of our heart's motives and actions based only on the external thing is lies and deception and doesn't really deal with the core of the problems which is the heart
and moreover, muslim women cover themselves not to be a slave of men (which is complete nonsense and absurd) BUT they wear make-up in order to look pretty and be attractive and THAT is hypocrisy.
Mohamed despised women - and that is why he gave all rights to men - men can have 4 wives, can beat them, reject them, close them at home for disobedience,
women are to have plenty of children and to be obedient to their boss - the husband - as slaves.
I will not mention how mohamed created the paradise for muslims - and it plainly shows that he was a man with great problems....

12) Are women allowed to hold religious office (priest, minister, rabbi, iman etc) in your religion and how do you feel about it?
yes, women can be leaders, can teach and preach.
God (the true God) loves all people alike.
He loves women just as much as He loves men.
Jesus died for all - for men and women and He has no favorites

13) Does your place of worship segregate? If yes, how does this make you feel?

14) How much does your religion affect your daily life and how much thought do you give it when making a decision? Does it affect in any way your decision on abortion, gay marriage, etc?
God is my everything and I look to Him in every area of my life

15) How would you react/feel if your child wished to marry outside your religion?
if it depends on me - I would never allow it
but the person who really encounters God in a living way- would never want to leave a good living God for a dead religion

16) In your opinion, if someone is not of your faith, will they go to hell?
religion does not save anyone, only Jesus saves us-
all those who believe in Jesus and in what He did on the cross will go to heaven for eternity with Him, all others who rejected Him will go to hell

17) Who do you think is not a practicing ----- in your religion and why? ie who in the public domain claims to speak for your religion? Do you agree with them or not?
there are millions of reasons why

18) Have you ever been the target of a hate crime? Please explain.

19) Do you ever feel like your religion devalues you?

20) Does your religion give you peace of mind?

21) Do you believe in reincarnation? Why or why not?
there is no such thing
