In my old post I delved into the LGBTQ vs Christain Parents, and found myself repeatedly, addending the article. Had to make an editorial decision to write a follow up instead.
This topic is an old rehash but probably more eloquent this time around: The moment when bigots demand love & respect but can’t seem to give it in return. Where’s the joke in the irony: Cognitive dissonance personified.
The state has a responsibility to all it’s subjects not just Jews, Harikrishnas or Christians. Let go of that bigotry, self entitlement and delusion. Love does not exclude.
Britain is a multicultural society and not a monolithic nation. There is a reason why Jesus came from the House of Whores (Rahab) and his best friend (Mary Magdalene) was a whore.
He in fact, appeared to the whore first, before his disciples when He rose from the dead after his cricifiction. The Son of God. The one whom; without nothing was made. How ironic.
I feel child psychologists and educators should take Christain parents views, in as they should, holistically, coupled with extensive research, data and professional insights to mitigate a solution within the school curriculum to address this complex issue age appropriately, with care.
A blanket religious view won’t solve problems relevent to today’s norms concerning youths in this cyber overload information age.
Humans have evolved. Therefore, we need new coping mechanisms unlike before. That’s life.

If you are somebody – people talk about you
If you don’t want people to talk about you, then, you are not ready for success.

Now peace the fcuk out and worry about your own sins. The last time I checked the bible, yours was like a filthy rag and all your self-righteousness swept you away! Ditto.

Unlike all you Perfect Xtains, Muslims, Theologeans, Scholars, Bible Bashers and know it all – you know what ::
But he said to me, 19 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. :: 2 Cor :: 2:19 ::
However, as it is written: 2”What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him—1 Corinthians 2:9
I rest my case :: ‘Demi Lovato’ – God Bless You :: You wise wise woman ::
2 Corinthians 5:17 :: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!
God is a loving God! He knew the beginning from the end. This is what love would do – save …’Not condemn.
Geneses 6:6 :: 6”The Lord regretted that he had made humankind on the earth, and he was highly offended” –
hence John 3:16 :: 16”For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life”.
You folks condemn too much – its a turn off. You should be sharing Jesus (Love) not -spewing hate/judgement. Jesus said its finished (on the cross when he gave up his spirit). Give them the same salvation according to the Grace of God. Just as you have been given. You didn’t earn it! You were freely given my friend.
Proverbs :: 10:12 Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.
God does not condone sin :: I never said so :: Nor did I call every one a hypocrite. Anyone who likes to think, they are sinless – is who I refer to as one. Especially, when they can’t be grace – full as christ has been with them. Folks think – it’s their work of righteousness that will save them. Not really – its only by the Grace of God why we are complete in him.
Titus 3:5-7 ::
5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost”
6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life”.
I rather quote scriptures as you can check them :: your self :: I love scriptures :: It’s my thing :: I particularly love the scriptures on salvation, redemption and revelations. I have the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT, to reveal things to me – beyond your wildest imagination. God has told me and Jesus has shown me things your eyes or ears will never believe, even if I told you. So I rather show you scriptural proof.
I dislike condemnation and outright self righteousness which leads to hypocrisy. Above all, love Jesus with all my heart – whether or not, I am acceptable to people or not. Each to their own.
However, you can call me or label anything you think – I really don’t care. You can call me a leper, a murderer, a homo, a hypocrite, a liar, a thief, a sorcerer, witch, a dick, a wicker, a fornicator, blasphemer, a fool, an adulterer and add all the 7 deadliest of all the deadly – sins too, on top. I still don’t care. And although, I may be some or none of these (to you) in God’s sight :: He loves* me still, and his report* is the only report I believe*.
Proverbs 24:16 :: For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.
You know why? :: I’m fearfully and wonderfully made by God. He knows my heart – thats why I gave my life to him. Not you, or my mother, or father, or boss or, best friend.
I’m sure they may love me very much thou – but I can’t imagine them having my best interest at heart – when it comes down to it. That’s why I choose Love* – Cuz there is no Love* like the love of God :: and there is nothing above Love*.
I have been to churches where they were more unbelievably wicked, plotting separatisms and brotherhoods in disguises, being unkind, unloving, unforgiving, more tediously ungraceful, than folks I met down in circular places, ie. smoking crack in street corners or gutters littered with deja vu.
The homeless and the poor, not to talk of the young, vulnerable and old I’ve duly met – where this grace has enabled me to enrich them with my beautiful talents; spiritually in ways I don’t even know how to begin to – nor can explain. They always just say – it’s always nice, to have you around, for you lift us up when ever come around or call.
And I, somewhat feel that – I would rather hang with them and share the good news than listen to the one sided bad news from self appointed self righteous poor sited hypocrites. Stay Blessed. The Love* of Jesus sets you (me) free – let no demons tell lies on you (me)!
