Agape Love

Growing up, I was taught about the kind of love God the Father has for his children; it was called "agape love." I understood it as the kind of love that allows a parent to forgive their children for wrongdoing, and the sort of love that allows God to forgive humankind for sin. It was something to take comfort in. The message that we had "fallen short" was pounded into my head, and God's love had to be extremely powerful to…

Not again...Father guns down 6-daughters in Islamic "honor killing"

While the tragedy in Norway happened by a lone wolf - let's not forget the true horrors of Islam. Please tell me people - when does something like this happen among Christians?

To Be(lieve) or not to Be(lieve)?

I've some ideas lately that have taken me deeper into the rational world. Before I go on I'd like to acknowledge that 5 years ago today I was diagnosed with Bipolar type 2. It's been a wild 5 years, it's only been within the last 2 years that I've had a working treatment that has kept me stable. It is the use of the scientific method that has allowed people like me to be treated for biochemical mood disorders with pharmaceuticals.
