    Fighting With Low Numbers

    As I've grown older, and so have my friends, being Christian has become less of an occurance. Over the last few years each of my friends has seemed to come up with reasons to leave God, and I'm left with only a few who struggle to spread His word with me. It used to be everyone...

    Morality

    Morality is not just an obligation equal in importance to the cult or religious obligations of Israel, but that morality is perhaps superior to the cult. The crimes that are denounced as being utterly unacceptable to Yahweh, infuriating Yahweh to the point of destruction of the...

    Is it bad for a Christian to get tattoos?

    I know that my body is the temple of Christ and all. But some of the most Godly people I know have tattoos. And I can't loose my salvation, and it's not like I'd put anything that would offend him. So idk. But there are some people that think getting a tattoo is some of the...

    I love having a relationship with God!

    He's my best friend! You can tell him anything, ask him questions and you know he loves you! Going to church and being Christian is the best decision ever made!

    Say It. Out Loud. Jesus Freak!

    That's right, I used a Twilight line and morphed it into something that tells how much I love Jesus. It didn't always used to be this way though. When I was really young, my mom used to take me to church every Sunday, so I can't say I'd never heard of it before. As I grew up, I...

    Born And Raised :)

    I was born into a Christian family, and I am still a Christian today. By no way am I perfect. I cuss, I mess up a lot, and I don't read my Bible every day. But I know God loves me no matter what, and I'm proud to call him my Daddy :) I have a lot of non-Christian friends and...

    Beautiful.

    I feel that being strong enough, as a teenager, to be open about our faith is one of the greatest things we can do. It's so hard to be a Christian in high school because of the negative influences that surround us, and the pressure of taking the easy way out. None of my friends...

    Christianity In The Schools

    I think one of the hardest places to bring your faith is into the High School. Sometimes it seems easier to leave it waiting outside the door and pick it back up on your way out, but it doesn't work that way. If you want Jesus to protect and be with you, you're going to need to...
