Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. 1 Peter 2:12
I suspect that most of the individuals who have religious faith are content with blind faith. They feel no obligation to understand what they believe. They may even wish not to have their beliefs disturbed by thought. But if God in whom they believe created them with intellectual and rational powers, that imposes upon them the duty to try to understand the creed of their religion. Not to do so is to verge on superstition. - Mortimer J. Adler

From A Closet of Sin to Hope In Christ"We gays can't help that we're born as we are" I’ve heard it said. We humans can't help that we're born into a fallen world any more that we can help the bullying environment of sin that’s forced onto us. Sin is like a spiritual cancer; that if not dealt with in time, will kill us. Yet in the same instance it’s so pleasing to indulge we don’t even know we’re dying.From A Closet of Sin to Hope In Christ by The1Enchantress
All sin, no matter the form it's in, is addictive, and if we choose to submit to it, it becomes our addiction. And often we find ourselves submitting to it; sometimes purposefully, sometimes without even realizing it till it’s too late.
I will gladly admit that I'm addicted to it just as everyone else is, because I’m human. But because I’m human, because I’m made in the image of Christ, I don’t want to be addicted to sin. I want freedom; I want Christ.
That said, there is a contrast between the LORD’s followers and the followers of the world. The Christian's g
StrongerI'll stand there and hear you outStronger by DaraBlack
Your words are like daggers that pierce my skin
I see the gleam in your eye, your hope that I will doubt
With my silence you feel that you will win
Mocking my faith isn't enough for you
You have to judge the way I live
You take up your weapon aimed at me anew
I just smile and remember to forgive
I see the smug smile on your face...you think you have won
But in truth your words have made me stronger
Now run along, you've had your fun
I won't listen to you any longer
A poem written about an incident that happened between a co-worker and myself. He calls himself a "realist". I don't have an issue with him...but he makes it very clear he has an issue with me and my family being Christian. He made it a point to mock us....one thing you DO NOT DO is mess with my family. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own belief/opinion...or lack thereof...but why go to the point of mocking and being intolerant? His words just brought a smile to my face and made me
Where Art Thou, Purity? (A Thought on Good Friday)Where Art Thou, Purity? (A Thought on Good Friday) by CarrierNovels
As I sit here at 2:50 AM on April 18, 2014— the morning of Good Friday— I am called to remember Jesus Christ's sacrifice for us. That He bled and died so that when each of us faced our Judgment Day, we could hear the Almighty Judge hand down a verdict of "not guilty" for all of the sins that we have committed is simply overwhelming. No man comes to the Father except through the sacrifice and blood of Christ, but it seems that much— in fact, most— of the world has turned their backs on Him. The fact of the matter is that people enjoy reveling in their sin and they enjoy not having an eternal authority figure to answer to. They are of the mindset that if they don't believe in any "God," then they don't have to pay any eternal consequences because if God doesn't exist, then neither do said consequences. That could not be further from the truth. The truth is that whether or not you believe in or submit to the Will of God, the consequences of such b

I’m living for the Lord
I’m dying for the Lord
I’ll suffer for the Lord
Because He said:
”My God and your God,
My Father and your Father””*
Jesus adopted us into the Family of God
Jesus, our Brother
He did it all for us
He loved God perfectly,
loving us perfectly
and dying to save
Like we deserved to die for our sins
and He took our place on the cross
He took our place in our death
Jesus died for us!
Do you get it?
He really did
“Now even though you die
You will live”**
Just like Jesus did
Just like Jesus did
Cause He had the perfect trust
Christ had the perfect FAITH
God the Father whom the Son came out of His bosom
HE WAS GOD

Happy Early Good Friday! I post this sooner because I might be away from the internet a lot tomorrow and tonight.Happy Early Good Friday! by Jessica-Rae-3
(I usually don't celebrate this day, but I remember it. The day I truly celebrate is Resurrection Day or what others call Easter.)
Ya know, I love Veggietales! :iconlarrythecucumberplz: Usually if something needs to be put delicately or nicely, I trust them to make great movies for children.
This is by far my favorite song by them and its even performed by Rebecca St. James.
I especially love the last lyrics. So lovely.
This is something that those that are Christians need to remember and those that are not need to remember. Christians shouldn't be about being morally sound. That's nice, but we all know (if we're honest) that we'd fail in some area in our life. We're not perfect. Christians aren't meant for telling people all of their wrongs. Sure, we know what is wrong, but we shouldn't be shocked when a corrupt world accepts something other than God. We can't c

Knockin' BootsI cannot believe I just saw an add for "dating site" for married people to have affairs...It saddens me that debauchery and lust have become so commonplace in our society. Just about everything has become sexualized, even shows meant for families have characters that are either hardly wearing anything, wearing an obscene amount of makeup, or acting trashy. Everything has to have some sort of sexuality involved, and what makes it even worse is that it's almost always for a bloody paycheck. Whether it's porn, or cable tv, or cinema, more often than not, you can't go 10 minutes without having to be reminded of the human anatomy. And on top of that, whenever sex is portrayed in the media, it's hardly ever about love as much as it's just knocking boots because either somebody can't keep it in their pants, or because everyone else is doing it, and you'd become a social outcast otherwise. Love, sex and the human body are beautiful, sacred things that ought to be respected if not cherished. IKnockin' Boots by GrubbsWriting
'God is Love' and the TrinityENGLISH:'God is Love' and the Trinity by ll-Bisto-ll
Everybody says that "God is love".
I say, if you don't believe in an eternal, co-existent Holy Trinity,
Implying an eternal Son and an eternal Spirit with the eternal Father,
The phrase would lose some meaning:
All that God is, He ever was, and He ever shall be,
For it is written,
"I the LORD do not change",
"Who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty",
And to Moses He said,
"I Am that I Am".
What the LORD is, He ever was, for He is whom He is.
Would you say God always was Almighty, and always shall be?
I would say it firmly, for it is written,
"By faith we understand the universe was created by the word of God,
So that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible".
Would you say God always knew it all, and always shall know?
I would, with certainty, for it is written,
"Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely".
Now, would you say God will always love us?
Yeah, for it is written,
"Who shall separate us from the love
Finding Faith Through ScienceRocket scientist Jim Bradford says that science has always affirmed his faith.Finding Faith Through Science by Allendra3
Jim sees science as the study of what God made. And he defines science in this way: Science is an endeavor to explore and understand. Scientism is a philosophy that starts by saying that nothing supernatural exists. Jim points out that this viewpoint is unable to answer the question of where the matter and energy came from that supposedly started the Big Bang, according to the theory.
With a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, among Jim’s many accomplishments is working with Boeing on space shuttles. Up until college he was too shy to do any sort of Christian leadership. But he overcame this during college by inadvertently leading a Christian student group each week. Now, along with his rocket science career he also talks to people about the relationship between science and religion.
According to Jim, this viewpoint that we were not Created is one of despair. It’s saying that you are an
