I remember when I was about seven years old and I was on the school bus, headed home. One of my classmates kept staring at me. Finally, she asked me, "Are you a Christian?" I responded, "What's a Christian?" She laughed. I had no idea what a Christian was, and would not, for many years after this conversation.
Fast forward to around 16, and I was experiencing a new life and hope. At age 17, I began to go (at times unwillingly) to church. Around this time, I witnessed a lot of godliness. But I also experienced a lot of misrepresentation of what it means to be a Christian. This ranged from hypocrisy and the hatred of people to the lack of allowing people to truly exercise their creativity, personality, and faith. I believe this behavior was due to people, some of which were leaders, not fully understanding scripture. I am still healing from a lot of what I have negatively experienced at churches. I am learning how to be myself, love God and love others, whether I agree with them or not.
On the song Blind Faith, I attempt to show fellow believers that we have to love as God loves. And He loves all, despite our sins. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. I also challenge people who don't believe in God to trust and turn to Him. Although it may seem foolish to follow a God we cannot see, I still believe. I know what kind of person I was before Jesus entered in, and I know I am completely changed. This is what God does. He changes us from the inside out.
