Religion in society is deemed almost taboo to talk about in certain places here in American Society. School and the work place, are the best examples. To talk about ones religion openly in these public places, just seems to open a can of worms. So for the most part the majority just refuses to talk them and avoids the subject fervently.  Why are we afraid of the controversy? Why are we ashamed to say I believe in Christ? Why should I be ashamed to talk about my faith in Jesus? This is what I believe. I don’t want to shove my beliefs down your throat like some Christians, but if you were to ask me about it, I would gladly share my views. I also know many refuse to believe there could be a God if there is so much evil and suffering in the world. All I can say to that is that God gave mankind the freedom of choice, and it is human choices that has led the world to the place it is now. Now I know some Christians give my religion a bad taste in your mouth. You know who I am talking about the bible thumping, your going to hell unless you repent, screaming in your face “Christians.”  I do not stand with them, I strive to love like Jesus loved. NO I am no where near perfect, and yes I am sinner and I struggle with my demons daily, but that doesn’t change my faith or belief. My personal belief is that we are here to love each other and help others when you can and sometimes when you think you really can’t. I don’t condemn people for who they love, or the things they have done. If that is the way the good Lord made you, so be it. I have no place to judge another, for I am not the judge. I am not afraid and I am not ashamed to say I am a Christian.
