because many Bibles contain different interpretantion or translation of the psalms and I am using a hebrew Bible but I should if I should pray the Jewish version of the Bible or a christian version of the Bible in my language in order to tell the psalms?

I am agnostic and I have attended Christian schools all my life (because there are no others in the area). Here in South Africa (or at least in my area) there are more churches than restaurants, and many different denominations. Religion is very delicate, and all schools here have at least one morning assembly per week in which there is invariably a prayer. Sometimes there are more, for instance during morning announcements (important information for the day).

In primary school, not really understanding what a prayer was, I bowed my head and said “amen” along with the others. In middle school, I still bowed my head by respect but kept my eyes open and didn’t say “amen”. Now, in high school, I see lots of people who are clearly not Christian keep their heads high during the prayer.

What is the respectful thing to do? I don’t want to be a hypocrite and pray with them, but I don’t want to stick out as a black sheep. Should I keep bowing my head but not praying?

i am president of the Christian club at my school and we have had guest speakers come and give sermons every week so far this year.
got any ideas for a fun activity that can be done with a group of high school students to get them thinking about God
this has to be something we can do in our lunch period, just something quick and fun.
were not trying to convert non believers. our purpose is to give those Christians at the school, and anyone who is not, but is just curious, a place they can go to discuss and learn about God

I live in one of the most Christian towns in the world. try to guess where it is based on this:
-Has 63 churches
– Has more churches per capita than any other town in the U.S.
– Has over 10 Christian private schools
– Has one of the most prestigious Christian colleges in the U.S.
– Many famous pastors/speakers have graduated from that college

Maybe I’m crazy but see if you can guess.
