Went to a Forum ...

On Thursday evening I went to a question - and - answer forum called "Why do Catholics?," which was a forum where people could ask questions about why Catholics believe or do something. I decided to go to this forum because I was raised as a Protestant, and I did not know much about Catholicism. I wanted to learn about Catholicism, so that I had better understanding of it.

While I was sitting and listening to the speakers, I realized just how narrow-minded I am at times. I later realized that I must have thought that I had God neatly pegged into a hole. And that is wrong. God is infinitely more than I can imagine, and I think he used this forum to point out my errors. (It does take a lot of courage to write that. Sometimes we don't want to admit when we are wrong.)

So, as you can imagine, I came away from the forum with a profoundly different view of myself and how wrong I was.

Blog Changes

Today, I changed the name of this blog from Jessica's Conservative Christian Views to Jessica's Christian Views. I feel as though I shouldn't be mixing religion and politics together, so I'll just create another blog where I'll post my political opinions.

Bible Verse of the Week 13

It's that time of the week again. Here is this week's verse:
" 'Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.'" (NIV Proverbs 30:5-6)

Iranian President to Speak at Columbia University

The Iranian president is suppose to speak at Columbia University tomorrow. I'm disgusted, and I believe letting him speak at the university is a mistake. I would not be surprised if he was not challenged while he gives his speech; I'm afraid that people will be more polite to him than to a conservative speaker.
