I received a letter from a reader, which I will as always keep confidential. However, as I was replying I thought that my reply could be of benefit to others in a similar situation. I will not post the reader’s letter but a part of it will be beneficial so as to put my response in context.
My question to you is how can I move forward as a man given my past? I would like help from maybe a priest or a pastor but the left has shut down all churches and places of worship in the United States essentially, and I believe I need to be guided in the right direction. I know if you have committed one sin in the eyes of God, you have committed all sin and you merely have to ask for forgiveness since that’s the reason Jesus died for us, but I feel there is something missing. So far I have been hitting the gym and lifting weights, and focusing on my job to pay for school and my school work. Do you think there is anything more I can be doing to better myself than I am already attempting to do?
My response to him below the cut.
