Spiritual Journey Memoir: I’ve heard stories about people making wagers with the devil for their lives. Growing up in the world of Protestant fundamentalism, a Bible banging, ‘hell fire and brimstone preachin’ tradition, I was taught God hated gambling. But I decided to make wagers with God for my life anyway. What could I possibly lose?
It’s been one hell of a ride so far because I’ve had to unlearn the god of my youth. Not to mention everything I thought was so certain about the Bible, Salvation, the Church, and what it means to be an authentic person who can not not believe in God.
