    I Am Christian! I Am Not Ashamed!

    Tolerance?  I don't much see it in this part of the USA.  I will not be ashamed to love God.  I admit I do not share my passion everyday.  I don't not share my love all the time because I am afraid that my imperfections will not honor...

    It Will Never Happen

    No Christian should be ashamed unless they fail to be the Christian that God wants them to be. But they should never be ashamed because society does not approve of all of our beliefs. Abortion is murder. Homosexuality is a choice and a sin. Major issues that are becoming more and...

    I Don't Care.

    I'm not ashamed. Jesus made my life better. Who knows? Maybe, He'll improve somebody else's life. You never know, unless you try. What's so scary about a change for the better, anyway?

    Expected To..

    But I could give a crap less about your expectations and, not sorry to disappoint everyone, but I love Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.  I do not push my religion on people at all.  But, I refuse to let someone make me feel wrong for what I believe in.
