Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
I am not ashamed. Do you know what that means? What is the Gospel? The Gospel is many things, salvation, christ, God’s love to man, etc… In essence the core beliefs of christianity. The only problem is that too often we are ashamed. Too often we don’t want to talk about christ with others. Often courage is lacking in such a big way that we can’t even begin to turn a conversation to God. It is as if christ doesn’t totally empower us to do all things. Christians so often lack backbone, they laugh at That’s what she said jokes, they endure lockerroom talk, they enjoy crude talk. Speak up! Pick up your trembling heart and say something. Christians don’t need to be goody two shoes, but they ought to stand up to wrong, even when that wrong comes from a friend. Think of a friend, any friend, and make a mental note of correcting them next time they say something inappropriate. And then do it. If your friend is christian then he or she will appretiate it, but if he or she is not a christian, then why are you with them? The time to act is now, not later. You’ve got one life, and one judging session with God, act now and speak up.

    This is a message to the webmaster. I came to your “Courage Christian Teen Lifestyle” page via Google but it was hard to find as you were not on the front page of search results. I see you could have more visitors because there are not many comments on your website yet. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your website: I managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors from search engines than you have now. Their free trial and brought significantly more traffic to my site. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.

  2. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today..

      Thank you Arron! This is not a paid theme, surprisingly! One of our administrators, Daniel, found this theme ad we stuck to it. Thanks for reading!

  3. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
