I am the Senior Minister for the Garden Valley Church of Christ in Roseburg, Oregon. I am a Christian, a husband, and a father of four incredible teenagers. I have a degree in Bible and Youth Ministry.
The Bible and the answers that I find in it. I am also passionate of sharing the news of Christ with the world.
I believe people confuse Religion with Christianity. There are a lot of things about religion that I believe have become corrupted and twisted in our society today. Christianity is a belief that "GOD" sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins so that we have hope of the right to live in heaven when our life on earth is done. But in order for this to happen, we have to live a life worthy of the calling. This life is one embedded in principles of love and compassion for God as well as for our neighbor. Religious practices have corrupted what God truly asked from His people. Christianity is not about hate. It is not about abusiveness, critisism, or condemnation. Only God is the Judge of who gets to make it to Heaven. Our job as Christians is to show the Love of Christ through our lives. Anything that is taught other than that is religion, but it is not Christianity.
Anything. I welcome questions, comments, and even debate, provided it is done with respect. I offer the same consideration in my responses.
