I now passionately despise all forms of organised, religions, that contradict themselves. They are deluded !!! They have no love, and they have no GOD. Mercy. #MercyfulGrace :: I rather sit in a brothel, with whores, and sing to them about – the love of Jesus. Ok 🙂 Each to their own I know my heart :: and so does he.
The funny thing is that, she is THE XTAIN, extending out, the loving hand, unlike most of the rest; extending out the condemning hand in the name of Christ. A thing, he never did! Christ preached Love. The Love of God! The Redemption of his Amazing Grace. How, Where, Why – to find it! So, you my friend – focus on the shenanigans, in your life – and worry about, your own redemption – and find your own salvation!
Demi was talking about the attitude towards sinners not the sin ..’ and was spot on! Imagine Every sinner picking on every other persons, weak spots, quoting scriptures back, and forth – for and against ..’
It’d be an endless witch hunt, of sanctimonious hypocrisy, buttressed by the fact, that, Jesus said, its finished on the cross on calvary. Well, if you believe in the doctrine of Jesus. Personally, I do. I think folks forget, the self righteous appointed judges, the liars, the thieves, the gossip, drunk, the cheat and so forth, will all end up in the same place, if they don’t find love. Their Graces, come from God, through Jesus – never mind the gays alone, if that’s the point. Salvation is free and not just for some.
Religious folks should look within and condemn “all sexual activities outside of marriage, between a man, and woman, and etc” – when He said, “Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication…these defile a man” (Matthew 15:19).
That includes coitus between boys and girls, teens and adults – before marriage and couples who cheat on their spouses, as rampant as you could find a penny. Why can’t you see that salvation does not cherry pick and a sin, is a sin, is a sin – if that’s what you call – ‘Sin’.
Love covers a multitude of sins and that’s what God gave, Love through – Christ Jesus. “Above all keep your love for one another fervent, because love covers a multitude of sins”. 1 Peter 4:8
(Another, beautiful, but subtle point she raised – on Love*)
These are all parts and parcels of the point Demi was driving home ..’ God is the supreme – Judge. Not you, or I, or the Pope. We just need to accept all of our faults and seek the face of God through Christ Jesus. (Hopefully, I haven’t’ offended the none christian, here too)
“All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away”. Isaiah 64:6
I’m almost tired of repeating myself on this post. May God give us the revelation to seek his kingdom gracefully that we may not perish policing others faults, thinking we are saved.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Mathew 7:21
Even Abraham – had concubines …’ That’s another story, to start me off! Mercy Oh Jesus – Mercy Oh God! That’s All I say for here on ..’. “Sometimes some people don’t want to see the truth :: but :: that is the truth!” The truth is Love. And, that’s who God is ..’ Hi Five to That!
