I am conservative – both politically and scripturally.

The Lord has seen me through some very difficult circumstances in the past decade (and longer) and He is continuously working in my heart and growing a love for others.  I’ve always been a ‘rule follower’, so I very easily slipped into a pattern of following rules and judging others for breaking rules that I felt should be kept.  God is gracious and He has shown me that while I am to stand up for Truth, I must leave the conviction up to Him.  He has also opened my eyes to the condemnation that I constantly lived under while in the grips of legalism and reminded me that “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2.

I have fallen.  I have failed.  But thank you Jesus, for your forgiveness.
