bible-believer

Yes, I am a Christian. I believe the Bible. I do not support homosexuality or homosexual marriage. Yes, I still love you. Yes, we are still friends. No, I’m not judging you. No, I’m not condemning you to hell but realize that name calling and stereotyping those of us who stand up for what we believe is exactly what you don’t won’t done to you. We have a right to speak what we believe, same as you have a right to speak what you believe.
At first Peter didn’t consider the wind and the waves at all; he simply recognized his Lord, stepped out, and ‘walked on the water.’ Then he began to take those things around him into account, and instantly, down he went. The things surrounding you are real, but when you look at them you are immediately overwhelmed. Let your actual circumstances be what they may, but keep recognizing Jesus, maintaining complete reliance upon Him.
—  Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest.

I honestly feel sorry for the Christians who don’t understand how entwined Christ’s message is with politics.

All of the Jesus-saved, God-believing, bible-reading people who don’t actively seek to uproot oppression and racism and sexism and homophobia wherever they see it, who don’t feel the call from above for a liberation of people. Who don’t understand that Jesus flipped tables and chased out the tax-collector and accepted people as they were.

I’m sorry for everyone enthralled in a meagre, passive Christianity, a capitalist faith void of the active liberation of Jesus Christ who died for it.

🇺🇸 Gay marriage 🇺🇸

*First of all, no hate, if you send hate, you’re getting blocked. this is my opinion. You have yours, i have mine. If this post offend you, then stop reading and move on to another post or blog.*

Today the supreme court legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. I don’t agree with the legalizing because i believe man and female are the only ones that should get married. Why? The Bible of course. God created a man, next created a women from the man’s rib. I know times are changing. unfortunately…we’re changing things without God’s permission. God is the ruler, we need HIS permission to make changes. Doing actions without hearing God first isnt right.

Think about it: a man and a man cant create a kid. A woman and a woman cant create a kid. A man and a woman CAN create a kid. If the same gender marriages keep happening, there will be no more kids, we’ll become extinct.

People are saying Christians are hating on gays. The statement is somewhat false. Im a christian. Hear me out clearly: i dont hate gays, dont hate anyone matter of fact. I talk with gays, i don’t beat or insult them, i talk to them regularly.

By the way: All of us dont force others to become a christian. I dont force, i inform. If you dont care about my info, dont worry, i wont be all up on you, i’ll move on to the next person to INFORM. I already KNOW forcing isnt going to help anything. I mean, i dislike being forced, so why would someone else?

Some reminders for today...

There’s a lot of huge things happening around the world today, especially in America. It’s easy, as bible-believing Christ followers to get upset about what has happened today. And I write this post with love in mind, and a heart that wants nothing more than to see people come to know Jesus - regardless of who they are. My mind is kind of all over the place right now - and please don’t jump to assumptions about why. I can’t really sum it all up, but here are some thoughts I have today, which I write and put out there for others who are trying to process their own thoughts…

  • Jesus is our focus.

- This should be obvious, but I too, forget it often. As Christ-followers, our ultimate responsibility is to lead people to Him. We are all sheep that have gone astray. At the end of the day, He is the only message that truly needs to be heard.

  • The Bible stands true.

- God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. His Word is flawless, and remains truth regardless of what the world wants to do with it. Stick to the Word, always. And don’t only pick the parts you want out of it. Know what it says, and learn how to love people by studying it (this goes with my next point).

  • When Jesus said, “Love your neighbor,” He meant it.

- Jesus said this, and He meant it. He calls us to love people differently than you and me, and people who are different are not far. Everyone is different from you, therefore we are called to love EVERYONE. Our sins differ, but God sees them the same. We all need to be saved. We all need love, and Jesus wants you to get past your differences and LOVE like Him.

  • Don’t be “that guy.”

- Hate is not of God. “-Phobias” are not of God. Don’t be the guy on the corner shouting that God hates people. That’s not healthy for anyone - and it isn’t true either. You may feel frustrated, and unsure of how to cope with stuff that’s happening in our world but you need to fall down on your knees and ask Him what to do. It only takes one Christ follower to lead people astray, and turn them off from God altogether. Jesus loves you unconditionally and died for you, and I pray that THAT truth humbles you to see why each person (no matter who they are or what they believe) needs Him in their life.

Last but not least,

  • We are called to be a reflection of our Father.

- We have strong beliefs, and the world will shake them all the time. But those who are in Christ, are God’s kids. We need to think, speak, and act like Him. We are flawed, and nowhere close to being exactly like Him - but why not strive for that? Why not wake up every morning and ask Him, “Lord, make me more like You.” God shapes us ya’ll… He is the reason we breathe. Lets make sure that every breath we take honors Him, reflects Him, so people may come to know Him better.

I wish you ALL the very best, may today be a happy day for you - because God is on the throne and He loves you so much. :) xox - Linds

Your argumentative strategies are weak and you will be destroyed

If you’re Catholic (or any denomination) and hate gay or trans or actually any people you are doing this religion very, very wrong and I do not want to be associated with you.
