I believe it's possible, at least for some people.

Are you more likely to read Christian books or secular ones?

If there were more well written Christian fiction books. I would choose Christian. Unfortunately many Christian writers are so busy putting in morals and scripture that they forget the story. I do spend a lot of time reading my bible and devotionals.

Do you think the devotionals written years ago are relative for today?

I think some of the devotionals written years ago are still relevant, so long as the style isn't too harsh (I've come across ones like that).

Do you find it easy to find pens that write well or do you have the problem I do of having ones that stop and start or go too pale?

I have a couple good pens in my purse, and some in my desk. I always make sure that there are good pens beside the phones. Dan complains about the phone downstairs but since I can't go down there, her is the only one that moves it.

Do you buy your meat at a butcher or at the grocery store?

Grocery store.

In your attempts to be authentic, are your generally held in good esteem, or reviled?

It varies depending on the other person and the situation.

Have you been sleeping well or not?

Mostly well.

Do you believe in penal substitution or not?

I do believe in penal substitution but I had to look it up on Google, since I hadn't heard that Jesus' sacrifice for our sins is called that.

Have you studied theology or not?

I have studied the Bible and read several commentaries and other books regarding my faith, but mostly I depend on the Holy Spirit to direct me to understand w what I need to know when reading the bible.
I've also done some research in other religions. I've read The Book of Mormon (don't recommend it) and a lot of the Koran, also the history of Mohammed. It's interesting but what's important is you personal relationship with our triune God.

Do you find yourself pulling closer to God in times of trouble?

Sometimes I do and sometimes not.

Were you a trusting person growing up or not?
