  1. Onward Christian Soldiers Part Two

    This leads me to say and believe many reject Christ because it means giving up control and following your desires. God did lay down laws and rules for following Him. This is not because heís a hard-nosed tyrant, but because He cares for our well-being and wants to protect us. It proves you have faith and commitment to honor Him, just as you would a spouse. Like a parent that sets boundaries, so does God govern rules for Christian life. God gave humans the ability to control and rise above their ...

  2. Onward Christian Soldiers Part One

    This is part of the essay I wrote on Christ and Christianity. I hope to shed some light on it:

  5. Do you "read the Bible LITERALLY?" Or do you "Literally READ the Bible"?

    I've had my own personal struggles with this issue over the past couple years.
    I was always taught that we should interpret the Bible "literally"... meaning; "If the literal makes good sense, then seek no other sense".

    The problem I had in being able to understand scripture using that model of interpretation was; there were too many things that DIDN'T make sense.... Mainly being, that "rule" isn't followed in a consistent manner.
