Around months ago I decided I needed to get out of my depression state of mind. But sometimes I catch myself doing bad habits that I used to when I was depressed such as the scary thoughts and feeling bad for myself. While you were gaining recovery from that dark time in your life, what kept you going to stay positive? Please help me I'm dying to know!

Knowing that Jesus died on a cross so I may be FREE from all that darkness. The king of ALL kings died a gruesome death thinking about ME and all the sins I would produce. It’s crazy. So now I live in complete surrender to him. When the thoughts and urges come back to me, I quickly lay them down at his feet and PRAY PRAY PRAY that God strengthens me to never go back.

Hey Josh, I love how optimistic and confident you are towards your religion! but out of curiosity I was wondering if you'd be open to marrying/ dating someone who doesn't share the same belief? I know you mentioned how you respect anyone who has different beliefs and I personally want to thank you for that ("If someone's going to hate on me.. I'm just going to love on them!" haha. I am just curious if you'd be open to being with someone that doesn't share your belief or even a belief at all! x

Hey! Thanks for the kind words :) 

I love Jesus. And my love for Jesus comes FIRST before anyone else. So when I think about getting married someday, I would love to marry somebody who loves Jesus more than they love me, because he’s God and deserves all the praise. If somebody would love me more than Jesus, than that person is not in the right place. (especially because it’s me and I’m a mess lol :p) 

So to answer the question, I would not. I want to marry someone who could build me up and motivate me to be more and more like Jesus. 

Have a great day :)

What can someone do to be saved from their sins?

Hey! 

It’s easy. Jesus wants to forgive and save you because he LOVES you so dearly! 

"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

Give it all up to God. Tell him all your sins. Don’t be afraid. He wants you to confess this all to him. Ask him to forgive you of them all and he will! And once you do, don’t return to that sin. Continue living in the freedom you now have in Christ. 

"if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

I'm a Christian and I constantly am getting hated on for my beliefs by believers and non believers. I guess people get annoyed by how I'm not ashamed to talk about God and that he's pretty much all I talk about, but it's hard dealing with them hating on me all of the time. Do you have any advice or any scriptures I could study that would help me? It would mean a lot!

"And you will be HATED by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved" Matthew10:22

Keep pushing, Seeking God, And loving your neighbor. God will never leave your side.

Do you believe that if you are a Christian that you can just like listen to whatever you want to (like unchristian music) and live any way you want to and still glorify God by living that way? Because ,for example,if someone tht isn't a Christian sees that you are living exactly like them,(by dressing like them, listening to the same music, and acting like them) how will they know tht u r a Christian if there isn't anything different between you and them?

Your example is 100% true. As Christians, we must stand out and live fully in obedience to Jesus. Everything we do must be worship unto him. If we don’t live our lives trying to imitate Jesus, then we surely cannot call ourselves Christians. 

Now, do I listen to non-christian music? Yes I do! Some of my favorite artists currently include Toro y Moi, Sufjan Stevens, Texas in July, Foals, Mac Demarco, and Tame Impala. All great artists, all non christian. I listen to them here and there. Great music! They don’t take me away from living that Christ centered lifestyle. If they begin to, I will cut it out right away. I do try my “best” to stay away from is music that talks about sex, drugs, alcohol, and stuff with lots of cursing in it. That stuff is garbage and just pollutes my mind. I can’t be listening to that stuff while saying I want to grow in Christ. They’re just complete opposites. haha Whatever causes you to sin, cut it out of your life. That’s the way I see it.

Hey Josh thanks, I love your vidoes. I recently watched the what do you believe in video, you made powerful points. People at school think I am weird, I used to care about what people think about me and it bothered me, I got hurt easy. In the past year or two I realized I shouldn't care what people think or say because well why should I. That is one reason I watched your vidoes, because you aren't afraid to be you. I am also a believer in Christ and God. It makes me happy to see other believers

Hey there! Stoked for you! keep doing your thing and don’t let anyone put you down. You’re awesome!
