    The death of Leelah Alcorn - A few hours ago,

    I learned of another victim of suicide. Her name was Leelah Alcorn, and she was just seventeen years old when she took her life. I'm not blaming her for what she did. Suicide is a product of despair. She saw death as her only way out. The only thing that could stop the pain. I...

    Xian Truth and Love

    I searched long and hard for the truth. I didn't completely believe years ago. I was too busy in life, worrying about every little thing, thinking of where I am going in life and how I'm going to get there, focusing on the trials and tribulations that came before me in the...

    The common argument that Christians aren't

    supposed to judge. But what does that really mean? Atheist commonly try to use this as a defense but do they truly get what it means? This is an issue that has confused many people. On one hand, we are commanded by the Lord Jesus, "Do not judge, or you too will be judged...

    One of Satan's ways of deceiving Christians

    today is getting them to think the Bible is not relevant or should not be taken literally. Says who?!!! Man! We are a sinful creation. Do not trust man; trust God! "For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul...

    "The pain you feel now can't compare to the joy

    that is coming." I use this verse a lot in order to remind myself that there is something greater than this coming. There will be a time where all of this pain would have been worth it. Where I'd experience a joy greater than any pain or burden in my heart.
