Archive for the ‘Too Conservative’ Category

Recently someone told me the saying “God is the Santa Clause for adults.” In the conversation I was in and at that moment, I felt lead more to listen than talk so I didn’t respond to the statement.

Here’s a retro blog of mine that got some upset with me. Homosexuality is a tough topic sometimes in the Christian community but a conversation that must be had. If you disagree with me on of these points, first take a breather, pray it through and see if it is you emotions or the Holy Spirit talking to you. That being said, I am more than happy to talk with you more no matter what your thoughts are on the topic.
