I remember a time in high school when I felt overlooked by the Christian club at my school.

When atheists use the phrase “religion vs. science” they are implying that religion is incompatible with science, as if the two disagree. However, religion is not incompatible with science. Quite contrarily, what we’re really dealing with here is … Continue reading Religion vs. Science
Is perfectionism good or bad according to the Bible? So be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:48 Whoa, wait a second. Is that verse even from the Bible? It seems to go against everything society, even Christian culture, is screaming in my ears! I’ve heard so often that perfectionism is a bad thing that I’ve started to believe it. But is pursuing perfection … Continue reading Perfectionism: Good or Bad?
