Sin is a part of every person's life, to varying degrees. Many think that it is just part of life and does not impact us at all. Sin is extremely damaging to our psyche. The more we give in, the more our sensitivity to it diminishes greatly, making the next sin even easier to give into. Satan knows this and tempts that us with small things at first and then pushes towards worse and worse things. Repentance is the only thing that can lead us back to God and the plan he has for our lives.

People often say that science and the Bible are polar opposites; that science disproves the Word of God. In many ways, science and the Bible actually help prove each other. Much of the scriptures is a history book that can be verified by scientific research. Also, a lot of science proves the existence of God in how there would have to be a designer for things to have worked out like they did.

Some people believe that faith is specific to the individual and that organized religion is unnecessary. Jesus did preach individual relationships with God, but also in the context of the church being a body. We are all connected and need each other to survive spiritually. For those that try to "go it alone", Satan is just waiting to pick them off because they don't have the support and structure that is needed. God always planned for the church to be a family and support each other on our path to Heaven.

Many people have preconceived notions about who Jesus is. Many pictures display him as pale-skinned, blue eyed, ultra gentle person. Jesus was indeed loving and focused on helping people, but he was not afraid to tell it as needed. He often challenged the authority of the day and was willing to be rough verbally when needed. He was willing to stand up for what was right, even if others did not like it.

America was founded on the notion of religious freedom. Most of those coming here were of a Judeo-Christian faith. However there are many other religions practiced by it citizens. Additionally, Christianity is practiced all over the world. God's plan was to save all humanity through Jesus. America may be largely christian, but God cannot be contained within a specific country.

We can often think of God as a cosmic cop that is always looking to spool our fun and make us overly focused on the duties of being a Christian. God really wants us to live a full life that allows us the freedom to do all that we want with our lives in this world. He has given us free will, but given us rules on how we are to enact that will.
