Not a Christian Nation

September 22, 2011

Many believe that our nation is known for Christianity. I find this rather interesting considering every time I turn on the news or read newspaper, I see that there are not Christian values.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.  – Mark Twain Fear is something God has given us (2 Timothy 1:7) but it something we struggle with daily. We may fear losing our job, our health or even our life, but we have to learn to trust God because we know [...]
