I am an ENTP and a Christian. I was initially raised Catholic but drifted away from the religion to go off and explore my own theories on life around age 17. At age 21, I attended a non-denominational Christian church with my mother and was pleasantly surprised by the message—it was so different from whatContinue reading “An ENTP’s Experience with Spirituality & Religion”

I heard a teaching by Charles Stanley called “Living Clean in a Dirty World.” It was a wonderful message, so great that I ordered it on CD and have listened to it multiple times and have even given some of you a copy of it. I wanted further insight into it, so I emailed PastorContinue reading “1 Corinthians 5 – Accountability”
I was raised in the Catholic Church. I’m from New England, should that be a surprise? When I say, “raised” I mean I was there three or four times a week! My mother ran the Jr. High and Sr. High Youth Groups, taught CCD, and for fun cleaned the church. I sang in the choir,Continue reading “My Journey from Catholicism to Evangelical Christianity”
