Persecution.. It Comes With The Job

Good afternoon readers! Today was a beautiful day. I hoped you enjoyed it.

Today was a weird day for me. I am on day two of my job, and I got hit with every issue known to man by my co-workers today.

So I am sitting there, reading The Christian Atheist in between customers, and the topic of religion comes up. I was straight up told by at least 5 of my co-workers today, that they don’t believe in Christ, don’t go to church, and think that all religion is complete stupidity (that was the clean version of that phrase). I was asked about tithing, and building funds and mission funds, etc. For the first time in the 10+ years I have been a Christian, I have never felt to be persecuted, or to be an outcast for my beliefs. Don’t get me wrong, I like my job but this will be tough. As the title of this post states, persecution does come with being a Christian, I just didn’t know that I would experience it this way.

Any suggestions readers? I would really appreciate them.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

The Christian Atheist

Good afternoon readers. It is Friday, which is always a good thing.

So, after writing the last blog post, I decided to go purchase a book. I have been thinking about this book for a week or so, to the point of even having a dream about it.

The book I have decided to start reading is The Christian Atheist by Craig Groeschel. The sub-title caught my eye and hasn’t let go.

“Believing in God but Living as If He Doesn’t Exist.”

Here is what the inside front cover has to say.

Are you putting your whole faith in God but living as if everything is up to you?

Craig Groeschel’s personal journey toward an authentic, God honoring life and the lessons he learned along the way are more relevant than ever. From his family and his upbringing, to the lackluster and even diametrically opposed expressions of faith he encountered, Groeschel’s frank and raw conversation about our Christian Atheist tendencies and habits is a convicting and life-changing read.

This honest, hard-hitting, and eye-opening look into the ways people believe in God but live as if he doesn’t exist is a classic in the making.

So readers, I am going to read this, maybe blog about it, etc. If it sounds like a good book to you, pick it up and we can read it together.

Until next time readers, God Bless!
