Debunked: Put Guilt in Its Place
by Katie Hill on September 25th, 2020
Nobody likes to feel guilty. We do all sorts of things to dodge it. We distract ourselves with entertainment, food, friends. Or we try to make up for whatever it is we think we're guilty of. As sinful creatures, we have a way of twisting guilt into something of an overwhelming burden. How often we forget that Christ has already borne our guilt!

It may surprise you to know that there is actually a pattern in the Scriptures that shows us how lamentation can be a constructive process, strengthening our reliance on our Father and bringing us the comfort found only in Christ.

Debunked: Enough Isn't Enough
by Katie Hill on July 3rd, 2020
"You are enough" is meant to empower you but actually serves to pull the rug out from under you. That's because deep down you know the truth.

by Katie Hill on June 19th, 2020

Debunked!: The Unreachable Carrot
by Katie Hill on June 5th, 2020
I spent several years of my life trying to chase God in this way so that I would receive the blessings of God that the speakers promised. I tried to pray enough. Tried to read my Bible enough.
