#GodinMe.Faith

Stories and Viewpoints on Faith

Would you deny your family, friends, and significant other? If not, why would you deny God by saying your relationship is a private matter? Would he say, “we have a private relationship?” I don't think so

The content you are reading in GodinMe.Faith centers around stories and opinions shared by contributors. We realize that some of the content is controversial, and may offend some of our readers.  Our goal is not to alienate you, but to cause you to dig deeper into your beliefs. We want to challenge you to open your mind to helping others to come and know Christ as we do.  We’re certainly not saying you have to believe as we believe, quite to the contrary. We are saying let’s engage in different views so that we can better develop our faith along with others.  Look for more contributors to participate in GodinMe.Faith, who will have different viewpoints, and understanding of scripture.  We hope you like what we’re doing so far, and are looking forward to connecting with you on GodinMe.Faith.

Watering Down the Bible

There was not much watering down of the Bible when I was growing up.  The "grey" area, as they say, was nonexistent.  Everything I learned was laid out in black and white for me.  You were either going to heaven or hell.  It was a sin, or it wasn't.  You were breaking...

What is a Bobble Head Christian?
