Reasons, Regrets, and Rocks

Reasons, Regrets, and Rocks

For every Christian, you’ll find 37 different reasons why they believe in salvation through Jesus. I’m certainly no exception, as I’ve found several reasons of my own in my faith journey. Some of those deal with apologetics, the proof of Christianity through logic. On the other hand, several reasons are much harder to define or describe, falling more into the realm of something I just feel.
