Jesus Shows Us The Way

I believe that Jesus shows us how to live fully human. Many people will emphasize Jesus’ divine side to the detriment of his human side.

I believe In The Resurrection

This is something I need to answer for myself as well as my readers. If this helps good, if not you can dismiss it. After all, I am merely another believer in Jesus Christ. My hope is to express my genuine belief that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is what saves and …
