Dear God,If Calvinism is at least partly true,Then we live in a paradox-like world of free will and predetermination. If Calvinism if at least partly true,Then we have free will, that you judge us on how we use it.But you laid out the world's events before the world began.Truly, I am moving toward Reformed theology.I … Continue reading Poem: If Calvinism if at least partly true…
Once, I was being evicted from my apartment. It was a horrible time. But I knew that God had a plan of good in my life, and that this could very well be part of the plan. I also knew that God used bad times for good, and might have even allowed them to use … Continue reading God’s plan and our free will: A Disclosure
EDIT: I asked my pastor yesterday, and realized all beliefs are welcome, including Arminian. I even asked my pastor if she was Calvinist, and she said no!! She said she follows mostly Wesleyan beliefs, and that she takes comfort from each church in Christianity - United Methodist, Presbyterian, all. I misunderstood everything for York FCC! … Continue reading A Testimony of the Unknown: The Future Faith for Me
I hate it when the same church that preaches "love all" and "love God" also talks crap on minority groups, immigrants, and queer folks. This isn't how church is supposed to be. Church is where the minority are elevated, because Jesus cared for the poor, the outsiders, the weak. Who are the outsiders in our … Continue reading The Priority of the Church: A Testimony
A Testimony,Of God and How GOOD He is. God is good,Not because he loves me because I am good,But because He IS GOOD. Nothing, as we learned in church today,Is by coincidence.All is planned about by the Lord. The good is a perfect gift from above.The bad are consequences from our actions and others' actions.The … Continue reading God Is Good: A Poem
A Tiny note: We are forgiven, from a past, present, and future sins. This does not give us an excuse to do wrong, but to use our freedom wisely. To do good for all. What does being forgiven mean for progressive Christians? It means all the hate we've spewed, whether on purpose or by accident, … Continue reading Tiny Testimony: What Does Easter Have to do with Progressive Christians?
Hi everyone,If you haven't read in my last blog post, I've decided to CANCEL my break from the blog. Amidst needing to post about Easter and still wanting to be Unitarian, I know that I can stay strong in this faith journey and have decided to keep the blog OPEN. ONE thing that stuck out … Continue reading Jesus: The Mouthpiece of God, a Testimony
Dear everyone,Thanks for reading my post from a couple days ago about me trying out the Trinity. One thing I didn't consider, though: I need to post life updates and an Easter sermon!!! So, the blog is still up and going. While I'm growing in my relationship with Jesus as Son of God, I've been … Continue reading Who Am I Kidding? A Struggle
Hi everyone,Today, with class being done, I'm recuperating and thinking of God, Heavenly Father. I am a Unitarian Christian. This means I place more emphasis on God than Jesus, but do include Jesus in my faith story and love him with all my heart. For so long in my short time as a Christian, I … Continue reading The Aftermath of a Faith Crisis: A Testimony of God
Hi everyone,I hope your week is going well, and if you live up north, that you're driving through the snowstorms safely! I just wanted to give a tiny testimony of the Almighty Father: God is there. He might be in Heaven with Jesus, but his Spirit roams the Earth, covering us like a blanket. His … Continue reading Tiny Testimony: A God Always There
As a Unitarian Christian, my biggest aim is to be just like Jesus. Jesus is our ultimate teacher, and we can learn a lot from his in the Gospels. For one, he was self-sacrificing. He gave up his life in love. He carried all our sins with us to that cross, so that we can … Continue reading Aim to be just like Son!
Hi y'all. Sorry I haven't been very active this past month. It's been crazy with working at Walmart (as the only female cart-pusher) and being a distance student at United. For a tiny update on my life, I bought adult health insurance today. HEALTH INSURANCE! And on top of that, dental insurance too! Now I'm … Continue reading Tiny Testimony: Praying to an Unseen God
