I Wish the Prosperity Gospel was Real

I wish the Prosperity Gospel was real. I really do. For those who do not know what that is, it is a false theology/belief system within Christian doctrine that says "God wants—and even promises! —health, wealth, happiness, and whatever my heart desires." Of course, the ends to the means is on the part of the … Continue reading I Wish the Prosperity Gospel was Real

Musings of a Wanderer

I don't think I've ever really explained my site title or domain. So, I want to take some time to do that. When I started this blog, back in February 2017, it was during a time where I was doubting God and questioning/abhorring Christianity. I know, what a terrible thing for me, a Christian, to … Continue reading Musings of a Wanderer

Humanizing Judas Iscariot

I woke up this morning thinking about Judas Iscariot, you know, the guy history remembers as the "son of hell"? The one who betrayed Jesus to the Pharisees for 30 pieces of silver (roughly $250 in today's money, but that number varies depending on which scholar you ask). Most of us know the story: Jesus … Continue reading Humanizing Judas Iscariot

The Traumatic Nature of Deconversion

Memory is unreliable when recounting old wounds, but I do know that the beginning of the end started with an email to an old professor in which I expressed: "I don't think I believe in the God of Christianity anymore," and ended with a Facebook post about deconversion, and an awkward, hard conversation at the … Continue reading The Traumatic Nature of Deconversion

The Doctrine of “YOLO”

If the only things that matter in life are eternal then why is it that so much of our focus is spent on the temporary, the here and now? What have we to gain from this culture of “YOLO”? As we all know, contrary to popular believe, we do not live just once. The book … Continue reading The Doctrine of “YOLO”

And Jesus Asked, “Who Do You Say That I Am?”

He asked His disciples, "13Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" 14And they said, "Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15"But you," He asked them, "who do you say that I am?" 16Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the … Continue reading And Jesus Asked, “Who Do You Say That I Am?”

Having a Form of Godliness… (The External Christian)

Dear Lovelies, I'm following a Facebook post by my friend in which he questions "what is the line between 'merriment' and 'sin' when it comes to Christians drinking?" This is an important question because there's a lot of discussion around this topic and many Christians disagree (and it's my personal opinion that Michael likes to … Continue reading Having a Form of Godliness… (The External Christian)

The Siren Song of Self-Harm

These past few weeks have been hard, especially Tuesday. Tuesday was a hellish day because it marked 4 years of dealing with the Beast that is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. You would think that after some time, especially with the introduction and implementation of coping mechanisms and breathing techniques, the Beast would get bored and go … Continue reading The Siren Song of Self-Harm
