So yes, I got one of these blog things so I can speak my mind. haaa. not like I don’t do it all the time either way. But I’m just going to get into my topic; Why do people who say they are Christian give such bad testimony by the way they act?!? I mean, I know I’m haven’t been the best person in the world over the past couple of years, and I know I’m not a saint now, but seriously, some people just WOW. I go to churches in different places, I meet people that are “christian” I go to christian conventions and what not, and everywhere I turn its like people are not taking God’s word seriously. Well let me rephrase this, its not just christians, its more like everyone that professes Jesus as their Lord and Savior. For example, I was at Biola for a christian convention not too long ago, and during praise people were like talking or sitting down, during prayer, people were texting, people were talking, I DONT UNDERSTAND. Call me crazy, but if I’m gonna go somewhere and learn more about God’s word, I actually like to listen. dangggg, I’m weird huh? Where is the respect that many people preach about, where is that love they have for God? Ughh! sometimes i feel like I’m the only person that cares about this kind of thing, because honestly, it is one of my biggest pet peeves. secondly, I dont understand why some people just straight out don’t want to give other people chances. Its annoying, get over yourselves. please. I know some people that profess themselves as men and women of God that preach, sing, dance, give their whole lives to God, but don’t give a chance to a person because their gay, because some guy wears sandals and jeans, because the girl seems like a b****, etc etc etc! Does the bible not say LOVE your brother and sister? LOVE your enemies?! I mean, give people a chance. I have gone up to a homeless person, given them food, and just had a normal conversation, and have such an amazing insight onto what they are going through, and have gone through in the past. It doesn’t matter if the person isn’t like you, it doesnt matter if the person is a ” douchebag” whatever! Sometimes we’re not the ideal person people like to see either. I dont know, I’m just tired of people going around saying “If you’re homosexual, you’re going to hell! If you do this you’re going to hell! If you do that you’re going to hell!” Why can we not tell the people about God’s amazing love and forgiveness? OR how he died on the cross for our sins? I dont understand, but God knows why things happen, and why people do what they do.
“Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if do not preach the gospel! If I preach voluntarily, I have a reward if not voluntarily, I am simply discharging the trust committed to me. What then is my reward? Just this: That in preaching the gospel I may offer it free of charge, and so not make us of my rights in preaching it. Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews, I became a Jew to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law(though I myself am not under the law); so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law(though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law.To the weak I became weak. i have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:16-23
