My TestimonyMy name is Jazzy, and I am an unashamed born-again Christian.More Like This
I was aware of the existence of God since I was a child, but I wasn't so familiar with the concept of Christianity. I couldn't truly say for sure if I really was a Christianor rather, I wasn't living life like a follower of Christ. After all, I didn't really know what a Christian was; back then, all I knew was that (a.) it had something to do with believing that God exists, and (b.) it was something that my parents and some of my relatives followed. I didn't really know much beyond that. When it came to what I knew about my family, following the faith felt more to me like an expectation than a real choice. I didn't even know why I attended church. Because of this, even though I believed in God, I could not truly call myself a Christian then.
Honestly, my parents made a ton of mistakes raising me in a Christian-like manner. I barely knew what being a Christian was all about, and my parents didn't pu

The Body of Christ: On Protestants, Christians, and their Ideologies
The weaknesses and failings on the Catholic Church are well focused on. Far be it from me to deny or cover up the faults of my Body. Rather I recognize them and yet, through it all, love it. Though I would like to reflect on this I would rather like my reader to consider two things: 1) that same Body which we call the Church, specifically what that means, and 2) the general view(s) of my Protestant brothers and sisters regarding this issue. If we, believers in Christ, are also called the Body of Christ, do you know what that Body looks like? Below I shall examine those communities known as Protestant and Christian as well as those people who call themselves followers of Christ. I ask my readers, Catholic and Protestant alike, to examine their own communit
Only Christians Go to Heaven?￼Q: If only Christians go to Heaven then does that mean more than 3 quarters of the world go to ‘hell’? I think it must be pretty crowded at this point.....and what about animals? They don’t know Jesus from a blade of grass to munch on........so does that mean heaven is a huge church that sings hymms, has bar-b-ques (guess that answers the animal part of my question), on Easter Sunday with Jesus as the guest of honor and never a sorry word is ever said??More Like This
These are great questions. I have decided to break them down and address them one at a time.
>>”If only Christians go to heaven....?”
That depends on what is meant by the term Christian. To be a true Christian is to be one who has received forgiveness of sins by the Grace of God through repentance and faith in Christ and are following Christ as Lord of his/her life..
