Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. Campaigns are projects we are currently working on.

Sin May Not Be As Big of a Deal As It Is To You

What do you think God is more "concerned" about? His children sinning or his children not having a close relationship with Him? Man, talk about a heavy hitting question! Recently, the guys at BadChristian opened this question up to readers and listeners to gauge what folks thought was really, really important to God. In this weeks post, Joey shares some responses and whether he thinks sin is really a "big deal" or not.
