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”

A Prisoner’s Review: The Right Person
More of the Montgomery Lake High books were read in an Atlanta prison. Here is the review of The Right Person:
The Aftermath: Prologue & Chapter 1 (Reading of the Week)
Jason Davids glanced at his bedroom clock. Seven nineteen. Twenty-four hours had passed since one of the darkest moments of his life. He sighed and fell back on his unmade bed. He curled into the fetal position and tried with all of his might to will the horrifying image out of his mind.
He had not slept a wink in thirty-seven hours. He glanced at his clock again. Seven twenty. You can do this Jason, he urged himself silently. Just get up and go. Go tell them the truth. Tell everyone at Alyssa’s party that you found Andy’s body. Tell them that he looked dead. Tell them about the horror in Chantal’s eyes when she came rushing up the stairs. Make sure you tell them that it is entirely your fault.
The Path of Life & Illusion of Time
My philosophy is that the world was created by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit—God in three forms. God also created time, as a way for humans to experience his creation. Before he invented time, it did not exist and, therefore, God is not subject to time. I believe God experiences things eternally; he seesContinue reading “The Path of Life & Illusion of Time”
Commentary on Mark 12
Mark 12:28-34 -The Most Important Commandment 28 One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord ourContinue reading “Commentary on Mark 12”
Remembering America’s Foundation
As American citizens it is only just and fair to link the birth of our nation with the American Revolution. A nation of independence, with a balance of freedom and security. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and so many other American Constitutional rights are taken for granted every day. For many of us, weContinue reading “Remembering America’s Foundation”
1 Corinthians 5 – Accountability
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.

A Threatening Illness Yields a Positive Lesson
April 2000 “If you do not let us treat your daughter immediately, she could slip into a comma, or even die,” the doctor warned, staring sternly at my mother with concerned eyes. “You do not understand!” My mother exclaimed with tears streaming from her eyes. “She can not take that medication, it nearly paralyzed her!”Continue reading “A Threatening Illness Yields a Positive Lesson”
The Hammer & The Screwdriver: Being Who You Were Created to Be
We are all crafted differently and specifically for intended purposes. If a carpenter has a hammer that he uses often, manufactured to uphold many blows of everyday carpentry, is it doing its job better than the specially designed screwdriver, formed to only disengage the daintiest of screws, that he only uses once a month? AreContinue reading “The Hammer & The Screwdriver: Being Who You Were Created to Be”
My Journey from Catholicism to Evangelical Christianity
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”
