I'm just a Christian and am glad,
orthodox, creationist; so what?
a Trinitarian, lover of Divine,
a serious interpreter of the Guide.

I search of science, art, religion
& all the truth of these dominions.
You must have true citations
or you'll be judged, you'll need corrections.

The main reason why I edit,
or change or verify here:
I love the Truth, and hate the false
deceitful stories that are found.

Woe to you who misunderstand!
Woe to you wo misrepresent!
Better would be if you would cut
the little fingers of your hand!

I may sometimes edit some things
with which I don't agree,
Let it be told just as it is,
and not as you want it to be.

Of those who have the faith in God,
do not forget to make it clear
That they are closer to belief
than to the folly of unbelief

Do not invent your "
own" truth.
The Truth is what It is.
Look for the whole, dig deep
you will find it, if you just seek.

Jesus calls us Now to seek
Righteousness primarily
to love you, love them and love me
regardless of identities

He's the One who you will see
Will make you be, if you believe
Come and follow Christ's path,
Let us do His Holy Will.

Favorite Quotes[edit]

Sin has its being and origin in the fact that man wants to be his own judge. And in wanting to be that, and thinking and acting accordingly, he and his whole world is in conflict with God. It is an unreconciled world, and therefore a suffering world, a world given up to destruction

— Karl Barth

"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
