I’ve worked so hard and so consistently in understanding the whole Jesus Truth because I have believed that things of this world can provide temporary peace/joy, but not consistently like my soul needs. I’m not just trying to be a “good Christian”. I’m trying to survive and even flourish. I consider the Jesus Story my only hope. I have not hoped in vain. Woohoooooooooo!
I know the other “stories”, too. In some cases, other religions. None of them have given me the answers I have needed desperately.
