What if?

I feel like the world is trying to live in a paradox. One where everybody wants to be loved for who they are, but only love certain parts of themselves. One where people are hurt when they are not accepted, but do not accept others. One where we are all striving for something- we may... Continue Reading →

The Christian Feminist

Do you believe that women should be equal to men? If you said yes, you're a feminist.  [Sorry if you were getting ready to fight me, it's actually quite a simple principle.] Feminism isn't like a meringue- with precise measurements, and needing a lot of whipping into the perfect white shape. It's more like being... Continue Reading →

Rubbish

I began this year with   51 Shirts 18 Pants 12 Skirts 18 Dresses  15 Coats 6 pairs of Shoes 11 Jumpers       Before you judge me, maybe you should start by counting your own clothes. It's kind of scary. I’m sorry to admit that about a quarter of that was accumulated just over... Continue Reading →

Eloi, Eloi, lama sabacthani 

If you've swum in Christian circles for long enough, you would have heard the question or asked it yourself - "if God is so good, why does that happen?" Covering everything from why do wars start to why do babies die, from good people encountering hardships to bad people living great lives, and the overwhelming... Continue Reading →

Throw The First Stone

   I recently heard Stephen Fry's opinion of Gods justice based on the verse where Jesus defends an adulterer with the words "that of you which has not sinned, throw the first stone." I don't often listen to Fry as he is one of those people who will express his opinion in such a way... Continue Reading →

I had a few empty books lying around the house as people know I'm a... Continue Reading →

Blame

So the question asked to me to write on was "Why does god blame us for the causes of suffering although he created us sinful beings?" A very, very loaded question which I will attempt to slowly unpack. If you disagree or have anything to comment or ask, feel free to do so in the... Continue Reading →

The Love Song of Us

Don’t dismiss the messages of old as ones meant for those in times gone by. Don’t ignore the warnings of the writers and poets who were trying to communicate something to the wide audience of humanity. Humanity has not changed all that much. And so, when I look at men such as T.S. Eliot and... Continue Reading →

The Gay Marriage Thing

Before you read this, I'd like to point out I've attempted to express my opinions with as much grace as possible. If you read this, I'd love to hear your opinions, but not if they're filled with hate simply for outlining what I believe. At this point in time, I don’t know where I stand... Continue Reading →
