Messy Christianity

I grew up in a church that was boring. I’m sorry, but that’s the truth. It was so boring that church was the best place to get an hour nap at the beginning of every week.

Hebrews 4: 12“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” I woke up today with this verse on myContinue reading “The Power You Use”

Fearful or Fearless

When you ask an average Christian whether they live in fear or faith, the answer will always be: “Well I live in faith!” But as you can clearly see from the last post, everyone has to deal with fear. It is the universal factor of life. It doesn’t matter whether you are Christian or non-Christian,Continue reading “Fearful or Fearless”
