    Love is slow to anger, it holds no record of wrongs. It forgives instantly, it goes the extra mile. Love can bloom flowers just from the source, it's tender, kind, and merciful. It accepts with no questions pondered. Love is open arms with a true spirit reaching out to this lost...

    Christianity is not a jacket you try on

    and if it's too tight or too big or even too hot you take off from experimentation. It's a life long commitment that you don't actually initiate, but God does. It's the only religion that involves a regeneration of the heart. a change God starts that sculpts the Christian more...
