As a Christian, I basically believe in three core principles. First, I am imperfect and have committed moral wrong in my life. Second, God loved me so much that He died for me so I don't have to pay for my moral wrong with permanent death. And finally, God was resurrected so I can live with Him forever.

I don't think belief and science contradict one another, nor do I think my faith hinders my sense of rationality. Rather, having this belief has given me a great sense of purpose, and as a Christian I want nothing more than to reflect the love God has shown me to others.
