I started writing this as a satirical piece. I've never done it before, but thought it would be fun after I had an idea. I recently saw a clip from Colbert about the increase in Anxiety and how all fingers were pointing to Trump. My wife and I are staying at a hotel and for … Continue reading Alarm Clock Anxiety
Like most people, I've been hurt by church. When I went off to college, I was just starting to pursue God. I had always considered myself a Christian, but I didn't really know what that meant besides the good ol' truth of, Jesus died for me.

This is a question that has been argued about from across the aisle. The left says the right isn't pro-life because they don't care about the baby after they are born.

If you've been a part of the Christian world for any sort of time you've heard the term "The Gospel". This has actually become sort of a buzz word. We all say it, but we all don't mean the same thing. Usually I hear it used in the context of spreading the gospel/getting people saved. … Continue reading The Problem With Today’s Gospel
I recently saw someone post this thought: “I’m still an alcoholic and will remain one until I die.” Have you ever said something like this before?How about any of these? “I’m just a sinner saved by grace.” “I’m broken but God still loves me.” “I’m worthless but Jesus died for me.” “My flesh is so … Continue reading Alcoholic, Broken, Sinner, Evil, Worthless… Jesus?
