    How I Came Back

    I was raised as a strong Christian. After moving many times, my family quit going to Church. I started to be not so Christian in my life and decisions. As I returned as a sophomore in High School, I returned to the Christian Faith through the Christian clubs offered.

    Only In Times of Need

    Why is it that we as human beings only realize that we are ONLY human beings when things go south? We think that everything is peachy and that we have all the answers when things are good. We seem to only remember that there is God up there when we need his help and guidance. I...

    Not Exactly

    I grew up in a Christian home. I actually have nothing against Christianity per se. But, at the moment, I consider myself a deist. I just find organized, institutionalized religion stifling. And it segregates people and just makes you categorize your fellow humans for no good...
