Text here, if relevant. Otherwise hide.

Sometimes when I hear that someone is Christian, I get nervous.

I expect them to judge me - my language, my tattoos, all sorts of things.

Somehow, Christianity in the United States (and possibly elsewhere) has turned into a “behavior code” instead of way of belief.

Even Christ himself was harshly judged by the religious at the time - what can that do for us today?

I choose to see it as a call to action - a call to be a Christian who leads (as best as I can, I am human after all) with LOVE instead of judgement.

And lucky for me, there is forgiveness for when I fail.
