The label "Christian" can put a target on your back 🎯

People know who I am in that regard, and no secret about it. But I do understand, although I don't agree with it necessarily, I do understand why some content creators and musical artists don't like to lead with I am a Christian, blah, blah, blah. Fill in the blank after that. And it is because people will put a target on your back and warn people about you using the whole she's a Christian as if now people have to conduct themselves differently

But now I'm to the point where I don't care if someone's had a bad experience with a Christian, if they've written off all folks that are Christians because what happened to them personally, I'm not going to walk on tippy toes trying to defend what other people have done. I'm Anngela

You being a Christian doesn't necessarily mean you're going to perform my work at a higher level of skill or that you're going to be more honest than the person who may not be a Christian, because that comes down to professionalism and integrity, more so than your spirituality. So I don't care about that stuff either. And I don't go to christian businesses just because they are christian businesses. I don't look for that. That's not important to me. It's an added bonus

First time I ever went to therapy I was like 32. And so at that point it wasn't me seeking him out. But as I've sought out therapists over the years, it really hasn't been a big issue for me because, well, if somebody's really talking crazy, if they're coming up with something witchcraft, satanic, the occult, I'm out of there

But more so, we know that our time is coming where we're going to be judged and even rewarded for what we've done once we get to the big upper room, which is heaven. But again, it is putting a target on your back when you let people know that you're christian. Because I think life gets a little more challenging after that

Hey, Al, thank you so much for your response. And you are so right. People believe that you're no longer human when you say you're a Christian. So that means that everybody is watching how you react and respond to everything
