About

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Listening B & W
For many years I've listened to what others believe, and never had come to any real deep convictions about what I personally thought and believed. In fact, I was trapped in the land of "What will other people think" for much of my life. That kept me trom reaching outside of the "norm" and also kept me from thinking deeply about anything or saying anything about what was inside me. I was too concerned about being accepted. And yet, even with that, I never felt accepted. for much of my life I've felt like an outsider, never really fitting in, wanting to be accepted, but never feeling accepted. However, over the last 20 plus years I have went through some intense trials and had to rethink much of what I thought that I believed.

Updated 2018: This website is a chronical view of my thoughts and ideas and about life, God, religion, character and the like. (To see all the articles in chronological order, click here.) Over many years I have been thinking and journaling and then putting my thoughts on this website, I have been transitioning from the idea that  "God is in total control" to where I am now.

Unproven Christian Assertions

This morning as I was reading an Internet article I came across this phrase

"Those under 40 tend to be like the student I quoted above. They have had some weird experience of Jesus that changed their life. They left behind aspiring careers in law or media or medicine or whatever and took up ministry, which promises far less money and social prestige, but far more satisfaction, both in this world and the next.

Not Normal

Submitted by Stephen Winters
Blogs: 

I feel like I am a damaged mixed up sojourner who is just struggling to make it through this life. I have been through so much that has caused me to be "different" than the normal that so many people seem to live in. Yet, I have no desire to be that kind of normal. Even though it is painful to be alone (yet I'm not truly alone) and to be different, to not have people understand, I like who I am and where I am in life. I would not change who I am for anything.
