For those of you seeing the re-design of the website for the first time, welcome! What do you think? Lately, I’ve been thinking about the absurdity that is religion. Stay with me! I’m not saying that we should throw it out all together or that religion is bad. I’m saying that many organized religions have…

The Honest Faith: Christianity 2.NO

I want to take a moment to talk about something I’m finding to be an alarming trend. This has a little to do with things I brought up 2 weeks ago with the unity, should have used the word harmony instead, post on kindness. Then there was last week when I talked about how to…

The Honest Faith: Kill Em’ With Kindness

This past week, I again submitted a controversial question to the Christian subreddit page. I didn’t think it would have been controversial, but apparently it is.

The Honest Faith: A Father’s Love

Putting aside the historical validity of the birth narrative from Matthew and Luke. One of the things that I have always wondered about is Joseph’s story.

This isn’t what you think. I’m not going to go off about religion in politics, maybe a bit of vise versa. I’m not going to go into the whole Republican V. Democrat thing. If you are just looking for a reason to be angry at me, be angry for the right reasons. This post is…

The Honest Faith: Join the Resistance

I’ve been focusing a lot on the problems recently. I haven’t provided a lot of answers, well, aside from my 95 theses. I think we are well aware of the problems, however. Things are getting worse, yes, but as a wise person once said, “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” The outlook for our American…

The Honest Faith: Grinding

Recently my car has been making a grinding sound from the rear wheels. I know it’s not healthy for my vehicle to continue to drive like that, as it may be the brakes rusting over. My car is old. Well 12 years old, but in car years that’s almost an eternity. I’m going to get…
