There is a fine line between a passion and an idol, and as a Christian, I try to have the self-awareness to know the difference. One way to find out is by asking the question, "How would I feel if this was taken from me?" Whether it is your evening hobby, weekend entertainment, nine-to-five job, … Continue reading A taste of true freedom.
The cure to culture’s identity crisis.
I watch a good amount of YouTube while doing my daily cardio. I watch a lot of fitness YouTubers, but I am willing to bet that this extends far greater than the fitness industry and our content-creating industry. This applies to me as much as it applies to you.
