It’s hard to be Christian in unapproving world

Zach Garner, News Editor

   “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…”

   As we look into the future, may it be filled with believers and truth followers to the one most high. Amen.

   Being a Christian in this day and age, you always have to be prepared for what comes your way.

   That might mean people who want nothing to do with you, those who hate you, and people who think you are right.

   School can be one of the hardest places to show your faith. People are just so judgmental, always wanting to say words against us, which is why many are afraid to take part.

   I see so many people who say they are Christians but live completely different from what the Bible says.

   I do the same things at times, but I am always trying to work on it, bettering myself. However, it can be hard when people are always doing and saying things that make Christians feel unwanted.

   So, most people hide their faith at school, although a few actually show their true selves. As the school year has gone by, my eyes have been opened to how rude and terrible of a person I was, so I am digging deeper in my life and finding where I am destined to be.

   I plan to attend Ozark Christian College and pursue a career in music ministry.

   I feel that the Lord has called me into this and has a great plan for my life, wherever that may lead.

   So as the school year is coming to a close, think about what your faith is , if you have one or would like to, and ask this question:  Am I living my life for God?

   And if you don’t want to take part in religion, I would ask you to highly consider looking into a church family; they would be willing to take you in and love on you. I would suggest the Christian Church of Burlington to begin.
