    This was a good, encouraging article. I do find myself often trying to conquer sin and be perfect, almost to the point of it becoming an idol in cases. God has been teaching me over the last few weeks that, while I should strive to follow Him in everything I do, I can only change at the pace the Holy Spirit sets. He also has been reminding me, which has been very humbling, that I am an adopted son of God, and that I can't earn His love, and nothing I can do will impress Him. So instead of trying to impress Him I should seek to simply love Him. It was definitely an encouraging reminder to be filled with and fueled by the Bread of Life!
    • Following Jesus Is About Much More Than Killing Sin
    • If you are someone with a lot of junk (like me!) who is trying to follow Jesus faithfully, you probably spend a lot of time focusing on self-discipline, putting sin to death, and training your heart to hate what God hates. And that's good!

    Male politicians can pontificate all they want about reasons to allow abortion. In the real (civilized) world, as long as the fetus is not yet viable, it is the pregnant woman in consultation with her doctor who will decide what is going to grow or not grow inside HER body. Her reasons for doing whatever she decides are HER business and HERS alone! End of story.

    2theotherside - Comments like yours, disturbing and cruel as they are, remind me of how happy I am to know that Jesus is loving to all and that my denomination along with the United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Presbyterian Church USA, American Baptist Churches USA, United Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, and Unitarians all ordain transgender pastors.

    Godisgood1 - and what about XXY, XXX, or XYY? You realize there are more than two combinations right? Your gender binary is all artificially perpetuated through transphobia.

    No, they are not. This was the right thing to do and trans* women have the same hormones as cisgender women and are often of similar build. They will have to pass the same qualifications as other women and that is fair. Trans* men will also be allowed to compete as men fully. I think this is another step toward equality and acceptance. Even many churches like the United Methodist Church ordains trans* people.

    If people want to learn about "god's infallible word", they can go to a seminary. Colleges are for learning facts and debating ideas.

    AndrewWA - Christianity is a religion according to your government, n'est-ce-pas? Why wouldn't Hindus and others be able to hold similar events?

    Love TGW! I've already made my peace concerning the show wrapping up soon, but a girl can hope! The writers should finally release Alicia from Peter--STAT! This move will do wonders for the show, increasing ratings, automatically increasing original cast members screen time and awards, for seasons to come!
