the fact is
i cant prove anything
so i have to have faith and trust
in science
that what i'm told is true IS indeed true

so i guess i was living a sad life to begin with

just the opposite was true for me, Unfan

i didn't realize my potential until i became a Christian

i'm not sure how much more freedom you could gain without Him
since God gives us all free will

i was thinking about the homeless people the other day
and about how they are truly free
but its a freedom that leaves them less
in their lives and in their spirits

thats what i was before becoming a Christian
and believe me when i tell you

THAT is the saddest way to live life
