I'm driving home from work and I see a sign for "Little Lambs Sunday School" in front of a nice big baptist church. ::facepalm:: They refer to themselves as sheep! I mean, come on! Sheep? Really? And…Continue

Thrive or just survive?

I've noticed in at least a few A/N posts people mentioning that there is a difference between surviving and thriving. No one has stated what that difference is but it seems a common idea that there…Continue

"Definitely the use of biblical glasses for looking at the world. If it doesn't fit with the bible, or any other religion, then it isn't true.    Oh, and also, the constant use of end world arguments. Telling people the world is…"
