Four-time Grammy-nominated Christian singer Matthew West says living for Jesus is countercultural and Christians must not straddle the fence.


West released his new album, All In, on Sept. 22 and the musical project is being pegged "the most personal project he's done in years." The theme of the album is centered around what it looks like to devote one's life completely to the areas of faith, marriage, family and the world.


Since its release, All In has landed on multiple Billboard charts. It came in at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and No. 20 on the Billboard Top Albums chart. The success of the album comes shortly after West received his second award for ASCAP Christian Music Songwriter of the Year.


Below is an edited transcript of The Christian Post's interview with West in which he discusses nominal Christianity, the Vegas shooting and what it means to really be a Christian in this day and age.

Christian Post: During these times in the world, why is it important for Christians to go "all in" for Jesus?

West: Well, we are certainly living in uncertain times. In a world where peace seems to be in short supply, I feel like the world is desperate to see an example of "peace that passes understanding." When someone goes "all in" for God, committing their whole life to Him, peace is one of the gifts we are promised. Someone who is all in for God can take to heart that even though we will have trouble in this world, our lives are in the hands of the one who has overcome this world. When we've been filled with God's peace, only then can we turn around and become instruments of His peace to a hurting world.

When shopping it is imperative to shop around and fake watches the many options that online shopping provides. You can buy a Bulova men's diamond watch online and pay less than virtually all retail jewelry stores. Many tag heuer replica uk are now becoming online jewelers meaning they are doing all of their sales solely online. Consequently, they are able to offer consumers brand new authentic items at rolex replica. The caveat is not all online jewelers can offer discounts. The key is knowing which replica watches sale have the best deals. Conventional thinking says go to sites like eBay and Bidz. However, you need to be warned many of the offers and replica watches sale that display unbelievable prices is not genuine authentic jewelry. You literally have to read the fine print to see if the company is hublot replica watches. Failure to do so could cost you some major hard earned money.

Compared to many other watches out there Panerai watches are simple, but the devil is in the polish and the details. The refined designs are flattering to the wearer and function well as timepieces. Replica Panerai watches smooth sides of the square Santos are enhanced by screws on the rubber coated black bezel and on the segmented rubber strap.My personal favorite line in the Replica Panerai Watches collection is the Santos. The Replica Panerai Watches100 XL is their larger version of the watch, the standard model is a bit small for my tastes.In a route one way, this influence makes a lot of sense - the purpose of both sets of images is to create striking pictures that put Valentino handbags in the centre.
