My online journal provides news with a Christian worldview. My emphasis is providing news of interest to Christians in Tennessee, but I provide national and world news as well. I ALSO PROVIDE NEWS ON CHRISTIAN BOOKS, MOVIES AND MUSIC. Posts do not necessarily constitute endorsement; they mean I think you will find the topic interesting.

I started this Christian news site to fill a need I perceived to be missing — applying journalistic reporting to the Christian scene around the state. I pray for God to bless this ministry.

I am starting a new blog to focus exclusively on Christian entertainment (movies, music, books etc.): Followers of the Cross


I was baptized in June 2009 after knowing about Jesus but not knowing Jesus. As a messed up person following a perfect creator, I am still on a quest to learn about my savior and to become more like Him. I am nondenominational, although I attend a Methodist church.

I believe in the Trinity. I believe in the Nicene Creed. Jesus is the co-creator, the son of God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He was fully man and fully God. Jesus is the only way to salvation. That is what He said.

I believe God is love. He loved the world so much He gave His only son up to be crucified for my sins, for everyone’s sins, as an atonement. I love everyone. God created them and they are made in God’s image. All people have worth for this reason, whether they are an unborn child, a convicted murderer, gay, an evangelical Christian, a Muslim, and so on.

I’m a reporter at a Middle Tennessee newspaper. I love writing, the art of crafting words together in unique ways to make beautiful stories that people want to consume.

  2. Steven Damon Coburn for Governor of Tennessee 2014 NOVEMBER
    Tennessee can fix today’s problems by applying Christian values. It’s been tried the other way and has failed miserably. WE are the Volunteer State; let’s volunteer to fix today’s problems so our children and grandchildren have a fighting chance for a life not in bondage and up to their ears in corruption, debt and immorality.
    Steven Damon Coburn if elected will ask Tennesseans every two months to use the voting booth to vote upon 10-15 items and if a high percentage agrees than it is the Governors job to make it happen because it was the will of the People of Tennessee. You will be giving us ideas for future problem solving, this is a Christian and diplomatic method of strengthening America starting with Tennessee. If done correctly, other States will follow. Washington D.C. can once again become a place of respect and trust.
    Issues such as :
    Vote to teach biblical values in schools again.
    Vote to fire and imprison any and all government officials that voted to dip into social security fund.
    Vote to fire and imprison any and all government official that bundled good with bad legislature so it would be
    passed, and if they received any financial compensation for doing such, sell their possessions to repay our Government for acts of subversion.
    Vote to imprison any government official that voted for NAFTA. on grounds of subversion.
    Vote to disbar any Lawyer that has used loopholes to get a criminal off or ask for excessive continuances.
    Vote to build quanset huts in every county to hold criminals until their court date and after they are found guilty. It is good enough for our military.
    Vote that all death row inmates be placed in quanset huts just like our military and if a fight brakes out and one dies they died at the hands of their equal.
    Vote that all courts are held 24 hours a day for due justice. No more years dragging it out.
    Vote that the Veterans get quality healthcare due them.
    Vote to demand 80% of the products on Tennessee shelves so jobs in Tennessee and America will be created.
    Vote to reduce welfare recipients and amounts by 80%. They need to be asked with their disabilities what job can
    they do to make a living for their family?
    Vote that next to the electronic voting booth there will be a paper ballot for accuracy. and no body votes without
    proper identification, United States citizen, and registered to vote in that precinct and our military has the
    opportunity to vote and be counted.
    Vote to eliminate special interest, excessive government spending, lavish and excessive vacations.
    Vote that 100% of illegals be deported for economical, financial and moral reasons.(I believe in humanitarian help
    but illegals are being taken care of better than our veterans.)
    Vote to sell the Governor’s mansion, elected officials are servants not kings. This dollar can go to veterans medical,
    quanset huts and catastrophic portion of the health insurance.
    Vote to demand with respect, that the Federal Budget gets balanced and reduced by 40% within two months without touching the military or Senior Citizen benefits. If it is not done I will ask Tennesseans to start a class action lawsuit against all government officials both Democrats and Republicans that are not doing their job and if found guilty have their possessions sold to repay the United States of America. AND vote to withhold 100% of Tennessee taxes until it is done.

    What if all young men and maybe women that grades are below B should do a six week basic training from the Tennessee National Guard between their Sophomore & Junior and Junior & Senior years in High School. This will install honor, pride, self discipline, unity, and physical fitness. Since they are under age drinking will not be a problem. They will be trained to fire weapons with respect and learn the skills needed if our future security is threatened. If they decide to enlist into the armed forces after High School than the GI bill will help them with College cost. This might sound excessive but this is only an idea for Tennesseans to consider.
    I would also love to prove that an election can be won without fundraising and without owing any favors so that faith in government is restored.
    I will be on the NOVEMBER ballot as an Independent candidate for Governor of Tennessee. I pray you have read the whole letter; the future of our children and grandchildren are at stake. SEND NO MONEY, word of mouth, Internet, Face book and Emails cost nothing and is better than owing favors, so let’s take this viral, tell fifty people and ask them to tell fifty that lives in Tennessee and those not in Tennessee, it will spread like wild fire without costing millions like most candidates spend.

    STEVEN DAMON COBURN if given a chance is that person. Thank you and GOD BLESS
