American Christians like being safe, but they don't like being safe. They like being protected physically, legally, and emotionally, but they don't want to offer those things to others.

And that saddens me because while Christianity is NOT … Continue reading I am a S.A.F.E. Christian
I woke up at 4am today and knew I was in trouble. 4am is, in my body's stupid opinion, late enough.
