Diasporado: On the new kind of Christians →
Uplifting and insightful. “Christians often know what they are against but are clueless about what they truly stand for.” diasporado: USA Today reports, “Not that the evangelical old guard hasn’t cared, or hasn’t served others, but we are seeing a seismic shift in emphasis — from an emphasis on assenting to the right theological ideas and getting to heaven, to one where it’s all...
Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it...– C. S. Lewis (via theclivestaples)
Speaking the Truth
There are many things that may “hit us in the face” when reading God’s word; seem harsh, leave a bitter taste in anticipation of how our fellow church mates might interpret our intentions.
