faith

Jesus Christ - Lord on High

So faith then, isn't that one of those key topics that you never bring up in polite conversation?

Well quite probably, but this isn't polite conversation and anyway, why follow rules?

Friends

You might be of no faith what-so-ever, believe completely that God is a myth, that Jesus never existed (though you'd have trouble backing that particular chessnut). You might not want to ever contemplate the notion of faith, cirtainly not faith in an invisible being/power.

But to you I say why not just read on, it might surprise you to read some of the things I write, some of the struggles I face, some of the passion with which I have in my sole and just what real faith is.

(Not saying that I'm a good example, just a sinner full of crap like everyone else)

Get the Passion

Matthew 5:43-48

Love your Enemies

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbour and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
