    What a ridiculous claim brought up by

    so called atheists that all believers are brainwashed. They have no clue at all what brainwashing means or requires. What a helpless and futile attempt to discredit the Christian faith. Like a dog barking at the moon. That is their problem, they cant explain why educated...

    I thank my Father through Jesus Christ,

    all knowing, full of mercy, kind-hearted, ready to forgive at all-times, he stretched out his mighty hand upon me and led me away from death and sorrows, he has set me upon a Rock, where streams of waters flow towards Eastward for all mankind as well, his voice is like many...

    “To all the wayward,

    
wandering souls—
those with no hope,
no joy, no goals.
To those who walk
carrying stones of regret—
come to the cross;
you’re not lost yet.
Jesus has given you
a new name;
no longer hang 
your head in shame.
May you give up yourself
and give in...

    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...

    Leviticus 18:22-23New American Bible (Revised

    Edition) (NABRE) 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination. 23 You shall not have sexual relations with an animal, defiling yourself with it; nor shall a woman set herself in front of an animal to mate with it; that is perverse.

    I am getting sick of people claiming I should

    accept the burden of proof to explain or prove my God 's existence , were they so knowledgeable wouldn't they accept the burden of disproof and be it on them to prove I am wrong to believe what I do ? I can not see oxygen but I am pretty sure it's around me , disprove that !

    When the individual answers questions about

    why we are here and what is our destiny it activates the God consciousness within us all. That in itself poses the question can the God of the Bible be the answer to happiness and for a few of us the answer is yes.

    I am one, but I'll never tell you about my faith

    unless you ask me. Real Christians do not get boastful and full of pride. Being a believer in Christ is not the easy life, that's for sure. Everything is a test of faith. Follow God's word the best you can.
