    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...

    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 A very outdated guideline.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...
