Jesus, Zombieland, and The Walking Dead

Zombie movies and shows fascinate me. I’m honestly not sure the allure, but I enjoy them for some odd reason. I enjoy comedies so I saw Zombieland several times. I was hooked on The Walking Dead for quite a while. The one that really freaked me out was World War Z. When you take Zombies and make them fast then you have a truly scary combination…

Saved from Birth

We often talk about being sinners from birth. We inherit our sinful nature from our parents—it’s part of being human. Ultimately, we inherit it from Adam and Eve.

May Christ receive all glory, honor, and praise!

I Got Saved Again

I recently got into a discussion on Twitter with a pastor in Georgia that I don't know about a topic that can bother me at times.

I, however, do not agree with him.
