    I Like Your Christ, I Do Not Like Your Christians ~ Gandhi

    Love One Another

    Above all, have fervent love for one another, for love will cover a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. -- 1 Peter 4:8-9 If Christians could just remember this and take it to heart, I think all would be fixed.

    Christian To Reality

    I was a pretty committed christian up until a year and a half ago - now I am agnostic. I was reading the bible one day until the question of what is truth came out of no where. At this point I could not just throw faith at this as I originally done in the past. This was much...

    You know... Yeah, I think it has some serious problems but pretty much everything has serious problems. Hate on Christianity but recognize it's not the only religion that's screwed up.
