I Am Christian

    I grew up in a very traditional Christian home.

    When I was little, the only music played at home were hymns. I guess that's where my love of hymns come from. I enjoyed listening to them growing up, it was probably the only music I loved to listen to. The hymn "Abide With Me" has always been my favourite. I never knew why, it...

    I thought the divorce of my parents was going

    to ruin my life. I hated how much life changed. I went through depression and struggled with suicidal thoughts. I cried myself to sleep almost every night. A few weeks ago, I found a church that accepted me. They welcomed me with open arms. I've never felt so much love. I felt...

    We, as Christians, should live in a state of

    celebration. As a society, we have forgotten how to celebrate things. We are happy and satisfied for a few moments when something good happens to us, but we quickly forget and move on. Things that were awesome blessings two weeks ago become just a normal part of our lives, and...

    Happiness and a fulfilled life is

    for those who respect and value the word of God and what God says about love and sex. Today we are very tolerant in matters of morality. However, this tolerance is more an expression of indifference and uncertainty as genuine respect for others. The indifference to moral issues...

    Our lives glorify God

    whether we live for Christ or in sin - Rom 11:36 (NLT). Living for Christ allows the "sunny, bright, happy" side of God to be displayed. It also expresses His holiness because we are becoming more like Him. In other words, we are becoming pure as He is pure (1 John 3:3 NLT...

    Here are the "5 Rules of Life": 1.

    God exists. Love the Lord, your God with your all. Either you believe in God and/or serve Jesus Christ or you serve Satan, the god of this world. 2. If you deny His existence, then you are "saying", by default, that you are god. You can war against this truth all you want but...
