Happy Thanksgiving, Friends! Thanks for joining us for my Christian short story, “Aren’t you Listening?” Regardless of the divisions the media promotes throughout America, the Bible divides people into only two categories: believers and non-believers. Everyone who is now with Christ used to be against Christ, but by the grace of God, we are now with Christ. God wants those who are against Him to be with Him, and that should be our priority as well. I hope the side you take in the conversations of today is simply what Christ would want, even if that view is unpopular. Here’s a little story that I think relates to what’s playing out across America right now. This also relates in some ways to The Steadfast Series: America’s Last Days.
