I’m not angry.
I’m passionate 🙂
I’m passionate about truth.

I’m passionate about showing others
what God showed me.
That being said, you are NOT broken. Let’s define the word broken since there are at least two types when it comes to the topic of recovery. For example, this popular statement, “I believe great churches are built by broken people, ministering to other broken people.” can read two ways.
If you claim to be a “believer” and that you need to be fixed (broken), then someone has grossly misinformed you.
If you claim to be a “believer” and you think you can abandon your pride (broken), your pretensions, and your self-righteous posturing, you can’t! That’s why you’re prideful. It’s not YOU who does this.
I don’t believe anyone will ever fully understand what Jesus was saying in the Gospels. His “eight principles” were not God’s road to recovery, wholeness, growth, and spiritual maturity. Jesus wasn’t talking about recovery. Read it for yourself in context, and without peeking at some guy’s commentary.
Also, I don’t believe people “receive Jesus.” I can’t find this way of thinking anywhere in the Gospels (and that one sentence in the tenth chapter of Romans isn’t what many think it is). Those who deny themselves, take up the challenge, and follow Him (daily, continually) are the ones who know and love Him. And, those who endure until the end will be saved.
As for you, if you claim to be a believer, know and believe that you are NOT broken (need to be fixed). Download my book below and look at each verse on the bottom of every page. You will be amazed at who God says you are. Meaning who you are right NOW! You are NOT broken; you are COMPLETE in Christ (Colossians 2:9-10). True transformation can’t be undone. Once a caterpillar turns into a butterfly, it’ will always be a butterfly. The only thing a butterfly can do is choose not to fly.
Now, you get to choose believe or not!
