The Best Part About Christianity

I secretly think the very best part about Christianity (and possibly other religions as well) is that it gives you an ‘excuse’ to be on your best behavior and for the best possible motives. If you want to be nice, … Continue reading

Above the Law

I don’t think people who find things in the Old Testament and say, “Looky here, that’s a sin” fully understand what it means to be Christian. What’s in the Old Testament is just a bunch old Jewish laws. Christians are … Continue reading

Is Knowing Christ Essential?

I wonder sometimes if someone really has to know Christ to be a Christian. I mean, a bird doesn’t know aerodynamics yet he still seems to fly pretty well. Is someone who intuitively follows Jesus’ commandments without knowing them a … Continue reading
