Finding "Faith" outside the walls of a church

The Honest Faith: Dismounting the High Horse

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: How to be Kind

Surprisingly, maybe I should wipe that word from my vocabulary, I received a lot of negative feedback from last week’s article. I’m not sure why kindness rubs people the wrong way. I think it’s primarily due to the fact that if other people are mean why can’t I be mean back? Regardless, there was one…

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 question was this “Despite all of our differences and the things that deeply divide us, do you think that the Church can ever one day be united and…

The Honest Faith: Why Christians should care about Politics.

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…

The Honest Faith: Why Don’t You Care?

::Disclaimer:: I am not addressing this to anyone in particular. I do this because we are all guilty. I don’t aim to make anyone feel bad or guilty either, we have enough voices doing that. I write this to maybe, just maybe, open your eyes to a new perspective. As always I ask that you…

The Honest Faith: Shut Up and Get to Work

Remember how I said that I would probably not write any more controversial posts a while ago, yeah, I think I lied. The thing is when you stand for what is right or kneel for what is right, there will always be controversy. I have made a new friend recently. This was through the journey…

The Honest Faith: Theory as Truth

(okay, okay I know I should have titled it hypothesis as truth but it didn’t have the same alliterative┬áring to it. ) Lately, Cathy (my wife) and I have been watching Bill Nye’s new tv series on Netflix “Bill Nye Saves the World.” A few nights ago was an episode on pseudo-science. On his panel…

The Honest Faith: What is Hate?

Last week a friend of mine asked me, regarding a meme I posted on my facebook page, “What is hate?” She asked this to get clarification on the context of my position regarding that particular post. She went on to clarify that she doesn’t particularly like the use of the word “hate” when it pertains…
