In my Sunday school class, we have been studying the book of John. We talked about Judas. Judas was not just a disciple of Jesus, he was an apostle. He is known as the one who betrayed Jesus, but that’s not always how he was seen by others. In Matthew 10, Jesus sends out his 12 apostles to “drive...

Honest and Inspirational. About the book: You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces tells the story of how God through Jesus Christ transformed my life and gave me the strength to overcome a less than desirable childhood, the regrets of becoming a teen mother, anger, immaturity, poor...

Why is your religion and/or religious belief powerless to change you? Powerless to change the world? This might explain it… In Voice of Reason, a book shared with me by my Facebook friend, Bill Butler, author Bryant McGill writes: “Take any concept you believe in deeply and say...

I wish I knew in high school and college what I know now. If I could go back in time, there's a lot I would say to myself. I know I'm not that old, but I have had some serious life altering experiences that have given me wisdom that I wouldn't otherwise have. I still have more learning to do, but...

I had absolutely no idea that protestant came from the word protest. I've heard the word all my life and never thought to ask what it meant. As a child it meant... "not Catholic." That was good enough for me. Not that Catholic was a bad thing, my best friend was a Catholic and I thank my protestant...

Without going into King Henry VIII's desire to have his marriage annulled, which the Pope would not consent to, we'll skip to the political maneuvering the jolly king did to get his way. The king cut off English tithes to the Pope and ruled that church disputes would be taken up in England's courts...

I've been thinking a lot recently about changes in people, or the lack of changes.    I look at myself, and most of my core values are still the same as they were in high school. Minus my "wild" moments of course. However, I think that I am a drastically different person than who I was...

Could there ever be a way for us as thinking individuals to truly understand the wisdom of God? What truths are effectively conveyed through the espousal of religious principles around the world? Is there something missing? If you have ever thought seriously about the depth and significance of...

  I'm pretty sure there is a God.  I'm also confident Jesus was a special person that had a huge impact on humankind.  He seems to have lived a noble life we can learn from. That's my take on the institution that is religion, those three sentences. I don't go to church, I'm not...

I have tried Christianity many ways over the years. I tried living a split life, with God being in only the parts of my life that I felt comfortable with. Then lived my own life separate. I had my Christian friends and my other friends. I was a different person depending on who I hung out with. I...
