    Alpha Class

    I'm taking this class called Alpha at a church.   I used to be an agnostic - I believe in God now, but "The Bible" and Jesus is hard to figure out.   If you have any ideas on these topics or would like to engage in a dialog with me,  I would be...

    Sexist Ways Of God

    I feel absolutely terrible for posting this story. I do! I might get my head bit off. And it may seem like I'm Speaking FOR God as in who He is how He acts. But this is MY point-of-view, and things I've had TONS of trouble with over the past three years. God seems to give the...

    Since I Started Reading It

    Before my wedding my mother gave me a Bible to read while we travel and my husband is out at work. I started reading it after we got back from our honeymoon, and I admit getting some help online translating some passages, but the more i read it the more absurd it seems. Some of...

    This is only my opinion,

    I don't mean to offend anyone. I feel like the Bible is simply a guideline. A very outdated guideline. The Bible says so many things that don't apply to the world as it is today. Times have changed so much. It just confuses me how people can put their entire faith into a book...
