You also wore a "Jesus Freak" T-shirt (in public), paired with chain ball necklaces, JNKOS, and "sun-in" hair-spray.

9. While everyone else was watching the Power Rangers, you were watching The Adventures of McGee and Me! The American Christian Television series that featured a wee little caucasian troll-man who challenges the faith of young, impressionable, hunky boy-stud Nick. A stud, by the way, who you would grow up to be.

7. Bible Drill! A drill, by the way, that you are most grateful for now; because even with the tragic weight of homosexuality, you still find the books of the bible faster than any of your heterosexual counterparts.

3. You are not weirded out by Sunday School teachers that use felt boards (though you totally understand why you should be):

2. You watched and probably participated in something like a Christian Praise Dance/Mime piece at some point:

1. And last, but not least:

... You Know You Were a Christian Kid in the 90s if...

You either cried to this song or learned it in sign language but probably both at the same time:

These are the only 10 signs that you were a Christian kid in the 90s. This list is all conclusive, final, and unfortunately, not up for additions.

Until next time!
