If you think the essence of Christianity is fighting for what you think you are entitled to instead of serving, you might have missed how Jesus did royalty as the Son.
If you hate people that are full of hate then you have just become what you were against.
I wonder how many breakthroughs would come quicker if Christians didn't take credit (or discounted it) in the past for how God had previously answered prayers.
When one's prayer life gets past all of the regular things they say, ask God for, and/or ask forgiveness for - after that is the place that real relationship of getting to know someOne starts.
Lying and stealing epitomize the orphan spirit of distrust.
