What Does It Mean to Be Grateful?

Traveling from a poor, third-world country back to the United States is arguably the quickest way to become grateful. Within mere moments of landing, you, the American, realize just blessed you are, and vow to never forget to thank God for what He has blessed you with. Then, two weeks later, you find yourself back …

Monday Q&A 6: God and Man

In our past three Q&A's, we have discussed three highly important topics: the character of God, foundations of Christianity, and Scripture. Yet so far, none of these topics have been as important as the one to be discussed today. God and man. Deus et Hominum. Theós kai ánthropos. The center of Christianity. So why, exactly, …

Monday Q&A 4: Foundations of Christianity pt.2

Hey, and welcome back to another Monday Q&A! Today's topic is "The Foundations of Christianity", the second and last discussion here.

What Does a God-Focused Marriage Look Like?

Today is my parents' 19th anniversary. Since their wedding day on June 29th, 2001, they have constantly fought for each other, focusing their full and complete hearts on God and their marriage. Through this time, they have inspired many couples to live out a God-focused marriage, keeping the literal Center of the universe at the …

3 Ways Christ Helps Us Combat Depression (Guest Post)

Panic sets in. Heart racing, your eyes dart around frantically. You gasp desperately for breath, and your entirety trembles. There is no escape. The darkness has imprisoned you, and from within there is no way out.  Depression is the seemingly inescapable, wall-less prison that confines and cripples teens today. The cycle of fears feeding fears …

Monday Q&A 2: The Character of God pt.2

We're back again, continuing our series on the character of God. To cap it off, I am answering the last 7 questions from Stoa Apologetics' worksheet questions on the character and being of God. In last week's post, I answered the first seven, mainly talking about the importance of God's power and how it plays …

Lex Luthor’s Guide to the Goodness and Power of God

Inspiration can come from the strangest of places. I have, in my three years as a blogger, been inspired by a bagel, a cup of coffee, and other, non food-related objects. In this case, our inspiration comes from the badly-received movie "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice". The movie was quite predictable and, to nobody's …

The Glory of God in a Bagel

Have you ever had a bagel? You know, a nice fat one with extra bread, maybe with a little fried banana or a roasted ant on top? Yeah, me neither. I prefer a normal bagel, thank you very much. A little peanut butter or apple butter, and I'm set for the afternoon. Throw in some …

Why 2020 Has Been the Best and Worst Year of My Life

On January 2nd, 2020, I published the most ironic blog post of my life. Titled "Why 2020 Will Be the Best Year of My Life", the post outlined my plans for the year and detailed how I thought the year would go. Boy, was I wrong. In fact, I was so far off, it's rather …

Christ, the God of Fulfillment

Even in the darkest of times, God is good. It seems cliche, doesn't it? Yet over the last eight weeks, this has become my mantra. I have repeated it over and over again, and the words still haven't lost their meaning. We all suffer. It's part of being human. Some suffer more than others, leaving …

What Does “Yahweh” Really Mean?

These words were sung by popular 90’s band U2. At the time, nobody knew what Yahweh even meant. The song seemed rather random, as many of U2’s works were at the time. And, while many of U2’s fans did not understand the song’s meaning, the writers did. They were referencing God, and only the Christians and Jews recognized it.

Success In Christ- Guest Post by Ian Fischer

It’s in our nature to work and aspire. Some of us are loud and outspoken, while others are quiet and reserved. Ambition and aspiration are in all of us -adults, teens, Christians, and non-Christians. Many share common goals such as: 1.     Desiring a certain job/career.  2.     Aiming to be popular. 3.     Gaining wealth. If you asked a random …

Does God Hear Me When I Pray?

Prayer is one of the key foundations of Faith. Much of our Faith, as Christians, hinges upon it, and without it, we are rendered completely unable to grow in relationship with Christ. Many would describe such a man as a "dead Christian", having Faith but lacking fruit. A Christian's spiritual walk involves prayer from the …

Throwing Yourself In the River of God’s Grace

Sometimes, it just feels like the whole world is against you. Your friends think you're weird, your siblings think you're a dork, your parents are disappointed in your grades, and your best friend just moved to Montana. The only thing you want to do is run away from home. Is this you? I hope it's …

What We Learned From Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge is the most brutal, gory, bloody, and redemptive movie I have seen in my entire life. Rated R for "intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images," the film is quite possibly the most gory movie to be made, and yet it does justice to the story it was based …
