What happened to Christian transformation? You know – becoming more Christ-like? It used to be important. But now, does it mean anything more than switching to a church that we like better? One that supports our view of God, the way we created Him? That’s as opposed to a church that teaches and helps us to become more like Jesus. The Jesus Christ who’s the namesake of the Christianity.
The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven - Matthew
Ours Is Not To Reason Why. Remember that saying? Ours is not to reason why, ours is but to do or die. I was pretty sure I remembered it –

And then there’s our own brains that also get involved in what we consider knowledge, as opposed to something less than knowledge.
Can you believe that someone is using Mary and Joseph to defend relationships with underage girls? While the title from msn.com is misleading, the idea of using Jesus, or Mary and Joseph to defend someone accused of having a sexual relationship with an underage girl is nothing short of disgusting.
