Christians blog out of love simply because we want everyone to be in heaven reaping the rewards of faithfulness. We want everyone to understand what it means and how fulfilling it is to take up the Cross and follow Jesus to a worthwhile life. I do not understand why some reject Him and I do not understand why they insist on vilifying us on our sites. The irreligious and unbelievers can forget converting me so, please, spend time in God’s Word rather than finding fault with those who choose to share the joy.
John 5:24~ “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life”.
Visitors have been leaving heated comments regarding my stand against homosexuality and The Golden Compass. Ironically, they have sent others here to “investigate” and I had to close comments and set them to “awaiting moderation” in order to watch out for those who may be hindered by such poison. I am quite sure they would not appreciate me visiting their site to leave contentious remarks.
Romans 10:17~ “So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that satan promotes human logic and intelligence way above God’s Holiness. I am not averse to expounding on anything I’ve said and I am open to discussion but when someone approaches dialogue with an attitude of “dumbing me down”, beginning with what an idiot I am for believing scripture and how ignorant Christians are, I see nothing except problems that I am not required to babysit.
Matthew 10:14~”And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet“.
I cannot tell you everything that I have experienced and learned over the years; I can only encourage you to seek and support Godliness.
1 Corinthians 15:2~”It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you-unless, of course, you never believed it in the first place”.
That is not to say that God cannot change any and every heart, but one must be willing and receptive to begin change. It is not my place to debate or beg someone in to believing in Jesus Christ as our Savior, nor is it up to me to coerce or cajole anyone who has access to so much good information, yet they seek darkness. Way before the internet, we had the privilege of owning Bibles and it’s a shock how many do not know what it contains and the marvel of the peace that comes with understanding God’s promises.
1 Peter 1:23‑25~ “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever”. And this is the word that was preached to you”.
You can find those who will expend time and energy arguing with you, but I am not one. I have prayed for you, and will continue to pray.
Note: One of the inflammatory commentors contends that if we had to follow through with all that’s in 1Corinthians 6:9-10, why not just give up? God is alive and listening. He will forgive if we ask and repent. To repent in this case means not only being remorseful, but changing what we know is sinful behavior or thinking. Pridefulness must be set aside.
1Corinthians 6:9-10~”Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God”.
Please, seek Him before it’s too late!
I love you but, more importantly, God loves You!
