Am I a Christian?

I’ll admit, I’m definitely no super-Christian if I am one. But sometimes, I wonder if I am a Christian. I know someone who might call this pre-Christian. I’m not certain if the Church I am in is the right one … Continue reading

I saw a baby baptism yesterday…

I’ve never seen a baby baptism before. Even though Jesus had revealed himself to babies (Matt. 11:25-26), a baby being enlightened to know Jesus was simply unthinkable among the Evangelical Protestantism I grew up with. They did baptise infants at … Continue reading

The Bible is a Simple Book

Theophiletos said in a comment… Although I would hesitate to use the term “contradiction” of any parts of the Bible, whenever two passages don’t line up, I find that to be a productive tension which teaches me a lot more … Continue reading

8 Reasons why the feminist debate in the Church deteriorates the Gospel

Talking to My Deacon and Resting on My Friend’s Shoulder

Why I Just Want to Blow Off Any And All Catechetical Instruction

Distress in Faith

I tend to have a lot of struggles with faith. I wasn’t born into the proper religion, I was taught instead that being a Christian meant that someone made an affirmation of their faith internally. That is, that being a … Continue reading
