  Description: A couple in bed. The husband says to his wife, "The bible compares the relationship between a husband and his wife to the relationship between Christ and his Church but since you're deconstructing your beliefs you're nothing like the Church and how can I have sex with that?" We were young Pentecostals madly in love when we got married.  I remember the moment I first laid eyes on her.  I wasn't drawn to her beliefs. What I first noticed was her beauty. Then, when I got to know her, I fell in love with her person.  She fell...

Backsliding or Growing Cartoon Description: A woman leaves a church full of people. All the people are thinking, "She's backsliding!" She's thinking, "I'm growing!" (I drew one very similar to this before, but this is an improvement. I can do this since I'm the artist LOL.) This actually happened to me. There was no animosity. It was just time for me to leave because I didn't have the freedom to grow there anymore as I felt I needed to. So I left.  And I was the pastor! It was the perfect thing to do.

You were trained to confess your spiritual...

Cartoon Description: A woman lies in bed. Her main though bubble says, "My beliefs are deconstructing!" But this main though bubble is having its own thought bubbles, like, "Once you reject Christ you can never go back." "The fool has said in her heart there is no God." "Definitely going to Hell now!" "You're being so selfish." "Deconstructing is just a fancy word for backsliding." "No, you're betraying God." "How dare you question God." "Why are you turning away from the Lord?" Been there? Done that? I have. But I promise... it passes. Now... there may be people outside of...

Description: A man and woman sit at a table. Man says, “I believe but sometimes I don’t. Woman responds, “That’s weird because I don’t believe but sometimes I do!” I love the vast diversity of people like you in my life. But our differences are ripples on the surface of the deeper current of reality: our fundamental connection. I work for unity in diversity, not only between ourselves (we acknowledge our differences while still loving one another), but within ourselves (you acknowledge the differences within yourself while still loving yourself). Someone messaged me: “I was raised without any religious upbringing...
