Good afternoon friends. Not feeling real well and wants to reach out for prayers. I hate feeling sick especially when its like this halfway point of half sick half not. So thank you for your prayers and I hope my blog posts are making an impact slowly but surely. Heck, might even be another one coming tonight.
Good morning! Oh man I never knew so much was involved with promoting a blog. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, wow so much to do but definitely worth it. Worth it because I feel that I have a real purpose in my writing; not just to gain followers and possibly even a new livelihood but because I feel I have a real message for people. A message that things are not as they should be and we need to change them and fast….
So, you might be wondering about the picture above and why I led with that; glad you asked! Well, this past week my middle son asked me what he should say to someone that insists if you are gay you are going to hell.? I have heard this viewpoint before but the fact that my son was asking about it showed me that Houston, we have a problem. We have a problem because once again, the church and its followers (notice I did not say Jesus and His followers) have created their own Bible and their own Gospel. My response was simple; ask them if they think liars go to hell, if people that lust go to hell, if adulterers go to hell, if people that get angry go to hell. And if they say no then explain to them that being gay is no more or no less a sin than anything else. There is only ONE way you send yourself to hell; rejecting the Messiah. Period! That’s it, that’s all, show is over, end of story. God does not judge our sin, He did that by sending His Son to the Cross. What He judges us on is whether or not you snubbed your nose at His free gift.
Does God want us living a homosexual lifestyle? Of course not, He is very clear about that. The point people continually miss is that He also does not wanting us to lie, or cheat, or lust, or (insert your sin of choice here). We are not judged on some mystery scale like other false religions but instead by His Grace. Now of course once we come to TRULY follow Jesus, we should repent (turn away) from our sin and start heading the other direction and this topic is no exception. But by listening to some folks, by their gospel, if you die in your “gayness” you will go to hell. This folks is why the world is what it is; too many people playing God and not enough people loving others regardless of where they are at.
I have the same argument with folks on tattoos. “Hey, don’t you know the Bible condemns tattoos?” My response is, “Hey, don’t you know the Bible condemns cutting your beard or hair?” ITS IN THE SAME VERSE PEOPLE!!! Context is always key folks, but alas we pick apart God’s Word to suit our agenda or heck even create a new one altogether. Just another way in which a veil has been placed over our eyes folks…Are you willing to lift it? Are you willing to see what God really wants from us? I think I have some of those answers; would love for you to continue the journey with me 😉

Peace and Love,
Just a quick entry this morning. Mind is all over the place so I pray for clarity, direction, and peace.
Love and Blessings,
Hello friends. You know, the day started out good enough, that should have been my notice that things were going to happen. I can’t really get into specifics because I would be digging my own grave so to speak; with that said I will have to speak in more general terms. Another post that, for the most part is simply my own version of therapy I guess. Not many people can understand how I process things so at least writing it down helps I guess. Maybe someone can relate, not sure.
So in very general terms, I guess I’m just tired of being screwed over. Every time I turn around people are achieving things and obtaining their goals all the while being as fake as a 3.00 bill. I know that I could be a better person, I know I could go to church more, blah blah blah. I also could shout from the rooftops all the good things I do but, oh wait, Jesus told us not to that. So, which is it; be fake and get what you want or be real and get screwed over? Just another battle I know but one that I am increasingly getting tired of fighting. I wish I could be more specific but alas I can only speak in general terms today I’m afraid. Just needed a forum to vent with. I’m not the easiest person to understand; most people don’t, heck most people don’t even try. Maybe someone out there can relate….Maybe that is why I go through this crap so people know they aren’t alone. Right now I have no idea but if you are reading this; thank you.
Peace and Love,
