What is True?

“The Bible isn’t true.”

Okay. Then what is true?

Your individual feelings on a subject?

Well that won’t work. Everyone has feelings, and they’re not the same.

Maybe the way you were raised? The particular paradigm you ascribe to in order to process the world.

But there‘s a mixed bag of paradigms, some the complete antitheses of others.

Maybe everyone’s right. Maybe morality is relative.

Fair enough. Can I borrow your purse? I’d like to swipe a twenty.

What?? Morally, it’s all relative, man. Chill out.

A lot needs to change. We’re all in agreement with that. But I what I think needs changing are the hearts of those who keep fighting against Christ.

Because deep down, the electric undercurrent that keeps our eyes focused up and collectively structures all of us within an authoritative realm is absolutely no mistake.

God is the head of all things. He has hierarchically organized law and order to keep the ones we love safe and to bring consequence to wrong action.

It’s people who bastardize that initiative. It’s people who allow their own rotten hearts to beat.

Heart change. It only comes when you humble yourself and submit completely, giving every ounce of yourself to Christ.

Heart change.

The hardest choice you’ll ever have to make.

“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

Romans 13:1 (NIV)

A Violent Hope is now available on Amazon.

Hey, I'm Ericka! I'm a traditionally (and self) published novelist, former atheist, and current Christian. I know. I just finished writing my super gritty novel, a Violent Hope, that isn't your typical, cavity-inducing Christian fiction. So I currently find myself between a rock and a hard place when trying to find a publisher. What’s a girl to do? Publish the book herself! Come learn more about my process and my novel, A Violent Hope, at erickaclay.com. And don't forget to say "hey" when you see me on Twitter (@ecauthor) and Facebook (@ecauthorpage).
