Who am I and why am I here?

Date: 09/29/2014

Back in the 1960s - 19870s there was this "youth revolution". Young people were questioning authority, rejecting authority...many of these youth we labeled, "hippies". They  threw over the conventional and traditional to come up with their own "relative" truth. I suppose each generation has their own form of the same transition into adulthood. But this particular one altered our culture. It wasn't ...

Date: 09/03/2014

Saint and sinner Bruce writes:  You know I respect you and appreciate your writing, but I think this is a pride issue, not an evangelical issue.
