By classifying Christianity as a 'RELIGION', the WORLD is able to compartmentalize it and move it off to the side, so that it can be … Continue reading Relationship NOT Religion
A couple of nights ago, I had this really intense dream, but could only remember a few parts. Upon awakening, I pondered at what I had seen and heard. In the dream, I was having a conversation with someone. That person was explaining the importance of FAITH. This person said that "the Law" will only … Continue reading Faith is pleasing to God

As nice as New Year's Resolutions are, they are difficult to maintain AND they generally put the focus squarely on ourselves. Now, there's nothing at all wrong with getting in … Continue reading Christ centered Resolutions
