Steps to Peace with God (CBN)
"Do NOT conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."-Romans 12:2
When you become a Christian, you want to do the best (w/God's help-you're not alone anymore) to shine His light to the rest of this world. How do we become His light? We have to change or old ways of life. Christian can also be define as "Christ like". Here are some ways in this world that we can renew our mind:
You've made a decision to commit (or rededicate) your life to Jesus Christ--that is just AWESOME! This is the most important decision you will ever make in life, and one that should radically change everything you think and do--in fact, it will turn your whole world upside down!
But your relationship with God involves much more than asking Him into your life--that's just the starting point. Now comes the prime stuff, like getting to know more about God...learning what He has to say to you in His Word...learning how to walk with Him in prayer. No matter who you're close to, getting to know them takes time--it just doesn't happen overnight. That's the way it is with God, too. He created you to have a relationship with Him--to know about Him, not just know who He is. In fact, you're now family with Him--tight, close, together! And now that you've taken the first step He will patiently help you to know Him better and better.
This 14-day follow-up will help you to develop that relationship with Jesus using four key words from the acronym GROW:
Go--Just pray it! Get connected with God everyday in prayer.
Read--Just read it! Get connected with the One who wrote the Book and the One the Book is written about--the Bible.
Obey--Just obey it! Get connected with the only way God wants you live the life through wholehearted obedience to His Word.
Write--Just journal it! Get connected to His work in your life and your prayers by jotting down answers and important moments when He has spoken through His word.

What then does this say of the situational truths of secular humanism?
-Of the separation of church and state?
-Are we as a nation lost in the confusion of double standards?
-If we are in a state of moral decay, as the author believes, how advanced is it?
