Goodbye, 2017. Goodbye to all the confusion and frustration I’ve felt. Goodbye to all the mistakes I’ve made and all the many times I messed up.

It’s coming face to face with … Continue reading Why Am I Even a Christian
“The Bible doesn’t actually say it’s wrong!” I get this excuse over and over again. “You can’t show me a verse saying it’s a sin, so it must be okay!” People expect all the answers to be in black and white.
