The Truth is Out There

Ask me anything   My name is Curran. 18 years old. I love my Lord and Savior Jesus more than anything. I really enjoy politics, and I'm super excited to vote for Mitt Romney this year! No big deal or anything, I've just been looking forward to this election my whole life :) Other things in life that make me happy are my family, my puppies, anything written by C.S. Lewis, coffee, photography, country and Christian music, traveling, world history, etc. Feel free to ask me about anything and I'll answer as best as I can :)


Oh, and my blog is named after one of my favorite quotes. "The truth is out there, but so are the lies" -Dana Scully (character on the X- Files). It's beautiful not because it's deep, but rather because it is a simple yet powerful truth!

"Here’s the thing you gotta love and respect about the Bible. The Scriptures do not protect the sins of the heroes of the Bible. They lay it all out for you to see their failures, their shortcomings, their rebellion. When they really blow it, it’s right there on the page. The Bible does not try to make men and women in the Bible look lovelier than they are."

One of my favorite verses! I’ve been struggling to determine how involved and how distanced I should be from this fallen world. Today in church I heard an excellent sermon about how to walk that fine line, how we’re called to lives that are actively engaged in this world. As Christians there are two mistakes we can make in how we go about this. Either we err on the side of isolationism and withdraw from the sinners we’re called to love because Jesus loves them (and as were before we found Him), or we immerse ourselves so much in the world that we end up being destroyed by sin. Both are terrible but there is so much hope to found here too. The hope is this- we have a God who became a man and wrestled with all this Himself. He walked among men and loved them fearlessly. Despite their sin He never sinned. He is here with us to, and so is the Spirit that raised Him from the dead. He is with us every step of the way and only by Him can we walk that fine line between isolationism and over immersion. There is no other religion on earth where God loves us so much that He called us into a loving relationship with Himself, sending His Son to die so that we could be free. This is a radical, powerful love and presence that enables us to do all things through Christ. All we have to do us surrender and follow Jesus. Only when He is the center of our lives can we find joy.

I encourage everyone to not just reblog or like this but copy and paste it into a new post, and tag the heck out of it (relevant tags of course, nothing random). Let’s do that thing the liberals hate, you know, use facts.

Thanks to young-republican-and-free for the original link.

This is the…

Probably going to have half my followers unfollow me, but this is the truth. I am not sorry if it offends. We cannot afford this man getting back in office.
