Joyful Decisions About the Future

Earlier about a week or two ago, a friend of mine and I were talking about the future. We were reflecting about how friends around us are growing up and moving on in some ways, while we are just kinda supposed to stay put where we are for right now. It seemed kinda depressing at…

On Phil Robertson

The DD, “scandal” is becoming absurd. Now people are criticizing him for being a, “meaningless rich hunter?” Get over yourself. First, the Robertson’s legally made their own money, they don’t live above their means, and they donate large portions of their money to the Church and charity.

As people followed their instincts and ran away from the blasts, brave firefighters, National Guard troops, and police officers, as well as several amazing people who were justly standers, ran towards the blasts, knowing there…

You Can’t Get Away With It

Some say that it’s only against the law if you aren’t caught. Uh, no. Just because you weren’t caught doesn’t mean you aren’t a law breaker. And because God has given the government His blessing to govern as an extension of His authority and power (not saying don’t question the man, just saying that government,…
