I was just having a conversation with my fiancée, and I asked her if she thought I was “the one.” I have never asked her this before.

What Does it Mean To Be a Christian?

A Christian is someone who has accepted what Jesus did for them on the cross. They then decide to go on this lifelong journey with Him, as he reveals to them what their purpose is, what he has created them to do, and most importantly, make disciples of all men.

The Sacrificial Lamb

Today is Good Friday, many years ago on this day, Jesus was led to the cross, to give up his life for humanity. The Bible says about this—like sheep, he was led to be slaughtered, and he did not retaliate. The old way of doing things was going to be done away with forever.

The Disciples are Just Like Us

Who remembers when US Weekly (a US magazine) had a segment that was titled —the stars are just like us?

Human Nature Or Racism?

For someone to hate another person, for the color of their skin, is only a display of disdain against their self Racism has been a hot topic for the past few years, which was reignited as United States President, Donald Trump was elected into office. Minorities feared what the US would become, as their president is infamously known for dealing with illegal immigrants. Racism is also an issue that dates back to when the United States was founded.
