It took me almost two-weeks to address this, but better late than never I guess. I mean, there’s been so much breaking news within the last couple weeks…the newest sensation is the Bill Cosby admission story; I’m wondering if it’s a mute point now. But, since I’m a woman of my word, I’m going to do what I said. Here goes…
The problem w/ Christians… why we look so wishy-washy and non-credible, is because we fail to get worked up about SIN across the board like we do about sins that BOTHER US MOST!!!!
Whether you accept it or not; it is the law of the land in 2015. The way I see it… it’s all prophesy being revealed. No worldly thing(s) snuck up on God. If you say you believe HIM…why the debates? Why the hatefulness & negativity? Jesus is still Lord & His will WILL be done in this earth regardless. The Word hasn’t changed. If we don’t read it or if we choose to manipulate it for our own selfishness… we will be judged accordingly. But here’s the kicker…
This doesn’t apply to one group of people!!!!!
When is the last time you gossiped about your sister? When is the last time you lied… stretched the truth to get more back on your taxes or something equally “harmless”? When is the last time you had sex out of wedlock? When is the last time you used God’s HOLY NAME in vain? I could throw out questions all day. So instead of bashing something you don’t identify with… remember you have struggles and areas of your life that still need working on. Pray for ALL SINNERS to get to a point of REPENTANCE before Christ returns. Period. Our focus needs to be on HIM because He does HIS JOB oh so well.
Nowhere in this post have you seen me say, not to speak up on God’s behalf. As believers, it is US who are His mouthpiece in this earth for those who aren’t connected to the vine. So, absolutely…don’t be passive when it comes to telling the World of the TRUTH. Just remember that while you’re on the Gospel SoapBox, you aren’t wrongly directing your personal hatred for a group of people. There is NO HATE in LOVE!!!
I can’t help but to chuckle at the #LoveWins moniker that the gay community has adopted based on the marriage equality decision. I remember using the hashtag almost a year ago on Facebook to express how happy I was to make it to 18-years of marriage.
When I think even deeper…
I am forever grateful and no law of this land is bad or good enough, to ever make me lose sight of that fact! Jesus NEVER operated in arrogance and negativity to get His point across. He simply LOVED and SHOWED the people what a holy life looked like by LEADING BY EXAMPLE. We all must strive to do the same.
