    My Cousin Shared This With Me

    When I say.... "I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I'm clean living." I'm whispering "I was lost," Now I'm found and forgiven. When I say..."I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need CHRIST...

    I Feel Liberated

    I grew up in a Christian sect with fundamentalist values.  I was homophobic, I believed the separation of church and state was a misinterpretation of the Constitution, and worse of all, I believed that my loving God was going to condemn the majority of those who...

    I Am a Straight Christian, and I Support Homosexuality

    I have been a Christian all my life.  I have always deeply believed in God, and though there were moments where I questioned if my religion was right or wrong, I never doubted God's existence.  As a child I believed everything my minister and my mother told me.  I...

    The Liberal Ideal Vs Conservative Ideas

    The Liberal Ideal By: By Udo W. Middelmann "The modern liberal sees himself far more free from the form of the universe, from agreed definitions as well as from practical and moral limitations. He starts from the image of a future world of his own making and then works backwards...

    Didn't Mean to Cause a Commotion

    Good to Find People With Common Experiences.

    I often find it difficult to be a liberal christian in today's american society.  With Liberal frequently designated as Atheist and Christian labeled Conservative, I feel stretched at both ends and with little feeling of having a home.  Neither group do I want to attack...

    I became a member of the Church of England today.  Hadn't planned anything but it was the annual meeting of the Church I have attended since I moved to England and they asked if I wanted to be on the Electoral Roll.  I said I was a Roman Catholic.  They said it...

    Just, What Is Liberal Christian Theology Anyway?

    I am a liberal person, I am liberal with my time, and talent, and treasure that God has given me. I think we all should be liberal in our love for one another, service to others in need, be it physical, mental, emotional, spiritual issues. But in liberal Christian teaching...

    An Average, Everyday, Conversation With An Average Person.

    If I were to be quarrelsome and light-minded like you, Trypho, I would no longer continue to converse with you, since you are prepared not to understand what has been said, but only to return some captious answer; but now, since I fear the judgment of God, I do not state an...

    Growing up I was told Jesus promised no one was

    going to be sent to hell by god. Nothing you could do to make god hate you. That god and Jesus are the same person but he was 100% human and God. Hell is a darkness you go to by yourself when you live with hate. Lucifer showed us the path to live without god. God is seen as...

    Hmmm...Liberals Are

    So to understand the background of this story, you must know two things about me. 1) I go to a Christian high school (ultra conservative is the norm) and 2) I am a liberal Christian, who strongly believes in gay rights. So needless to say, I'm one of a very, very, very small...

    I've Got My Own Bag Of Junk

    When it comes to be a christian I believe there is only one way to define it, a Christian is a person who tries to love other like Jesus Christ. They try to live a life close to him. One thing Jesus didn't do was judge people or set unlivable expectations on them, expect them...

    I'm Christian, proud to be, and will tell anyone who asks me that that's what I am. I think its a fundamental part of my character. And it speaks for who I am as a person. What frustrates me is that some how (not the people who know me, I hope) but many people I meet have...

    How Is That More Than 50% Of Christian Have It All Wrong?

    What part about "God is love" is so hard understand? I am so sick of all the condemnation in so many churches I have attended throughout my life. Because of those churches, I have been slowly losing my faith in all of humanity and in God. Come to think of it, EVERY time I...

    For me, it's simple. God is love.

    This is the central message of the Bible, and of Jesus. God loves in a way that is bigger than we can understand. I don't believe God worries about rules. I don't believe God worries about who's going to heaven or hell. I do believe God worries about the poor. I do believe God...

    Tired of republican conservative Christians

    slandering our God's word. God loves EVERYONE, no matter their gender identity, sexual preference, or skin colour. God was a man of PEACE, LOVE, FAIRNESS, MERCY and UNDERSTANDING. Shame on these republican Christians trying to control what women do with their bodies, shame on...

    Whatever I Do, I Turn Away From My God.

    I've gone through some real ups and downs in faith and theology and just everything. But throughout I have always at heart shared the views I believe define liberal Christianity. I believe in God and Jesus but I don't believe I know all the details, all their motives. I...
