Tuesday, Today was a boring and very uncomfortable day for me. Everyone know my last day here at Grace Christian Center is tomorrow so everyone is telling me that they’re sorry that I’m leaving. I’m not sure if its true or not , but its nice to hear. When I walked through the doors of GCC I went straight back to my seat and started cleaning out my desk. I don’t have much in there but I want to make sure that I leave it in better shape than when I got it. Just because I’m leaving doesn’t mean that I have to leave my work area cluttered. After cleaning up my area I decided that I was going to go downstairs to eat lunch with the rest of the staff member, which was odd because that’s something that I normally run away from. Me and the staff ate
I lived in Barriere most of my life since 1998 .. I lived in a family with three sisters and a brother named Shilo, Jessica, Moriah, and Thomas. Moved to a 5 bedroom house, my room was downstairs. I lived in a teachers subdivision in Barriere. Back then my home church is Pentacostal Christian Life Assembly I still attend there today. My family had been going there since was about 4 years old. At that time I had been going to youth run by a guy named Cliff Millar at the PCLA. I had lots of friends in Barriere and surrounding places. I hanged with my crew in that youth group. I was just hanging with them to feel like I belonged somewhere. But really I was empty inside I felt as if I needed to act out or showoff to become cooler and or better
I attend Gospel Light Freewill Independent Baptist Church in Thomasville, NC. It’s a relatively small church, with about 50-70 people on a Sunday morning. My grandmother, my aunt, and my uncle attend this church as well. I consider myself to be a child of God and a true “born again” Christian. Being “born again” means that one has accepted God into their heart and has been changed on the inside. I accepted him into my heart on October 9th, 2012. Growing up strictly in an independent Baptist church, I didn’t know that other churches were different, at least not until I visited my boyfriend’s church which is Southern Baptist. My pastor preaches heavily on hell-fire and brimstone. He walks up and down the altar, yelling and jumping. There are
Since I was a child, I loved making friends. Whenever I saw someone new, I would run up to them and immediately become best friends with them. As I grew up, I recall some occasions when I felt left out. I remember being so sad that they wouldn't include
I am an atheist, but it wasn't always that way. My entire life there was a constant pressure on me to accept that there was a supreme being that created all. Even at a young age I couldn’t bring myself to fully believe this. I continued grasping for straws because, just like every other religious person, I was scared of the “consequences” that would come with not believing. My Non-Denominational Christian Church promoted telling this to everyone, even children.
I became a Christian in 1982 while in high school. I had never attended church prior to Easter 1982. I found something interesting in the whole of the service and decided to read a Bible. The Bible made some sense to me. I had a few questions about some of the stuff that had happened and was given Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell. Well that answered most of my questions. I was also given Mere Christianity which answered more questions. I felt convicted by the Holy Spirit and asked G-d to come into my life and forgive me of my sins.
Not realizing I've fallen into a deep paralyzing sleep until the next morning. Sliding out of the foot of the bed with the inability to stop. This vision stuck with me. Talking with a church member, Jeff Hanson, a lean guy jolly with dark circles under his eyes, and
"Hidden in plain sight in hundreds of judicial opinions is an extraordinary principle-love your neighbor as yourself. At first blush the idea of its application to our legal relations seems odd: This is a matter of morality, not legality. But the biblical command to love neighbor as self has exerted
Reading was very diffuclt to me. The pronouncing and putting two-three letters together was discouraging. “Th” or “et”, made me feel like I was illiteric.
“The other important skill is empowering people by way of letting the biblical narratives ask their own questions of our social context…the discussion was wonderful, and people started to get this idea of dwelling in scripture before plunging into a meeting, in order to hear God.”. (A. Roxburgh/F. Romanuk,176) After
Boom, I wake up in the morning and see my mom opening her mouth over and over again. I was as slow as a sloth, I could barely move. Oh my gosh, I completely forgot that I had a religious event in Chicago today. My mom asked me if I

Essay 1 After creating humans God wanted to partner with them to work creating a perfect world. But yet, humanity as a whole rejected this partnership and turned away from God. God then set apart a smaller nation, Israel to form a partnership or a covenant with him. God makes promises to them, in return the Israelites have to live up to God's standards and accept the terms of the covenant. Besides being holy God asks the Israelites to be ambassadors representing God not only through holiness abut by also sharing the true God with the other nations who did not now. There are four main covenants God has made with the Israelites, and each can be found in the first four books or the Torah. He made one with Noah, Abraham, Israel as a whole
In my version, I would like to improve the religious structure by eliminating the hatred from nonbelievers to be free to continue worshipping who we want. Then if some individuals don’t feel like a certain religion is for them they are free to transfer without hatred. There wouldn’t be anyone
Think of the best thing you have ever done, the thing that just makes you feel happy inside for doing it. Maybe you went on a mission trip and helped someone struggling in another country, or you secretly gave someone struggling some money to help them out, and you didn't do it for the recognition, or maybe you just did something as simple as making someone who was sad smile, and feel a little better. Regardless of what it is you made a big impact on that person or people. Some people do these things on their own, but if you are a Christian you probably did it because the Holy Spirit inside of you moved you to do it. The Holy Spirit, or also referred to as Christianity, is a powerful force that will always bring good to those who accept
