My name is Keith Giles. I love to write so that people can know Jesus and experience His life in their own.
So, I started this blog to help people understand who Jesus is, and how He reveals what the Father is really like.
This is a safe place to talk about all those questions you've had about the Bible, and Christianity. It's also a place to learn how to put the words of Jesus into practice.

Thus shall I strip you naked, America and give your wealth
to another nation,
for your sins of injustice upon the poor of this earth.
The cries against you have reached my ears
from the workers at Foxconn you have devoured whole;
from the families in Kenya you have stolen resources from;
from the men, women, and children working as slaves in
China, Africa, India, and Mexico who make your clothing,
shoes, and luxuries.
Night and day they beg for mercy from you, but you will not
They stand barefoot and naked while they make your shoes and
The Sins of Sodom are heaped upon you. The Sins of Laodicea
are tattooed upon your heart.
I will show no mercy to the nation that wears my Name as they rape
the weak and exploit the innocent.
With your lips you speak praises to my Name, but your hearts
are far from me.
On the day of your Judgment - which I will bring swiftly
upon you - you will say to me,
"Did we not invade nations in your Name and drop bombs
on our enemies?"
And I will reply, "Depart from me, you workers of
iniquity. I never knew you."
Surely you will say to me, "We have grown rich and rise
to power because the Lord our God has blessed our wars, our guns, our exploitation
of the poor."
