Inspirational posters at Steve Henderson Fine Art capture the joy and freedom that true Christianity offers.
I’m a Christian, but I try to be a sensible one — a person who listens before speaking, who thinks twice before mouthing off, who is accepting of human beings without believing everything I am told.
21st century Christianity has its issues, and often, what people interpret as Christ’s message is human agenda. My articles on Christianity explore the adventures and challenges of living this life in the 21st century. If you’re not a Christian, I’m not out to convert you; if you are a Christian, I’m ready to dialogue. The articles are located both within this site and at my BeliefNet blog, Commonsense Christianity.
