I’m a woman who loves God, who reads the bible and very much believes it. I think it has value today and is still the best wisdom around. Politically I’m kind of unique in that I am NOT a conservative Republican Right Wing Christian. I’m very firmly Independent but lean to the left. I very much believe in taking Christianity back from the religious right who hijacked it from Jesus Christ, including the things He and God said within the bible.
Initially when I created this blog, I was leaning to the right and my postings reflect that for the first few years of the blog. What I have found over these last years, though, is that I am correct to hang onto the name “Bible warrior.” A warrior is necessary to stand up to those who are deceived and blinded regarding what the bible actually says. There are Christians who are twisting biblical words and teachings. They have added and taken away from what was originally written within those pages. I am keeping them honest, or attempting to, at any rate. I am not afraid to confront the religious right and those of their ilk, who follow behind them lockstep.
I have already discovered one thing that is certain: If it doesn’t sound like Jesus Christ, it isn’t Jesus Christ! Consider me a watchman over the angry fundamentalist zealot, who preaches legalism, hellfire and brimstone, and a false gospel without love.
After spending a lot of precious time sharing my thoughts with a few on a small blogging site, I found myself sabotaged and shackled, without the ability to freely express myself. I realized that it was time I graduated to a real blogging site where more people would be exposed to my writings, that was less heavy handed in the moderation of its bloggers. I also wanted to document my journey in spirituality, sharing my experience with Christianity in daily living, with as many as are drawn to read my writings.
I’m intrigued by politics, current events, and am drawn to theology discussions and debates, though I’m not usually into angry argument. I do enjoy discussion and andexchanging thought with others.
The current state of our country, America, worries me greatly, and I believe we are on a downward spiral that may not end well for this country I adore.
