    I want to be a better Christian,

    so I can love others without even questioning it, or thinking about it. I've always judged people before I actually met them, and in certain I was wrong; I learned from my mistakes. My mistakes are what make me a better person. I'm learning everyday, but as I do so I realize God...

    For the past few months,

    I've been losing sight of what it means to be a Christian. I feel like a hypocrite when I sit in church knowing that I haven't been living for God. I've been selfish and doing only what makes me happy. That ends today. A new year is about to begin and I'm determined to become a...

    I am currently a "re-believer"

    or a "new-believer" and through the gospel, good news, of God I have learned some things that I would like to share. There are two simple mindsets that you must accept, realize and truly believe to be a "better Christian". You are a sinner and you are broken, but God's love for...

    If anybody sees this,

    please answer. It's a very serious question concerning my current "relationship" with the supposed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am not a Christian. I feel that as much as I should give my life to him, to serve him for all the days of my life, two things concern me. One is...

    For the past few months,

    I've really gone down hill. I don't pray every night like I used to, I don't ask for forgiveness when it comes to sins and sometimes I do bad, even though I know it's wrong and I hate it. There is not excuse to why I am not abiding by God's way. I would say "I don't have enough...

    I feel like in recent years,

    I've drifted away from my closeness to God. I put more focus into certain things than I did with Him. I know it's not too late to get that closeness back. It's of utmost importance to do so this year.
