Why I Cannot Hate My LGBTQ Brothers and Sisters

This piece has been a long time coming.  The issues that the Christian community has faced and will continue to face surrounding the growing influence of the LGBTQ community and their activism cannot be circumvented.  The days are gone when one could say publicly their heartfelt views on same-sex couples with no major backlash; that…

Relieved on My 1st Father’s Day (#FathersDay2017)

I had not necessarily looked forward to Father’s Day 2017 because holidays (outside of Christmas and Thanksgiving and maybe Veterans Day) are just not that big of a deal for me any more.  However, the holiday was just a reminder (that comes yearly, but I try not to wait for) that I should be grateful…

Prayer Should Not Be An Afterthought (But Action Should Not Be Either)

The Decline of Christianity in America

[This is the “paper” that I delivered to a group of students (from South Georgia State College) and other citizens from the community of Coffee County, Georgia.  I did not go into every point in depth (due to time restraints), but hopefully it will encourage readers to think.] On the topic of the decline of Christianity…

The New Atheists Have Nothing to Worry About

Whenever I see pictures of billboards from atheistic organizations or other advertisements from them, I tend to snicker a little to myself.  It is not at the beliefs of atheists because some atheists are sincere in their objections towards God and the Christian faith (besides other religions), which actually helps me to be rational about…
