I’m going to be very blunt. I
fucking cannot stand people who miuse the cross. It’s a symbol of the sacrifice and love of Jesus Christ, and people think it’s cool to get a tattoo of it who could care less about Jesus. I’m sorry but it’s offensive to me because where I see salvation you see a thrown around symbol that people wear or tattoo on themselves.
It’s funny looking back onto the life I’ve already lived in this short amount of time. Growing up I was full of faith. Then I saw the hypocrites and people who said they were christians and their actions were opposite of it. So I said f*ck it. why would I want to be associated with weirdos and hypocrites and people who just want to look like a good person. But you know what it’s not about christians. Christianity is about Jesus and living for him. It’s really about wwjd. seriously. Would Jesus stop being Jesus just because everyone elses sins and misuse of his name? No we should be helping other christians with thier sins as they help us with ours.
Thats why we have church. It’s not a place we sit in and just listen. When the church started it was because christians from far away would gather in places to talk to and be supported by other christians because it was very difficult being a christian then as they were being persecuted by the romans. Thats why it’s good to be involved in the church and not just be a goer. because the church is there to help and serve you and you are there to help and serve the church as well. because we all need help.
God isn’t early but nor is he late. But he arrives precisely when he means to. Patience is a virtue (really it is..I’ve been told that my whole life and only now do I fully understand)
Lately I just feel filled with the spirit..of course things go awful, but it doesn’t last long. I just need to keep this up. Praise him!
I’m preparing myself for college by doing a bible study everyday through my bible app and it’s wonderful. It’s honey to my lips reading his word.
Tonight i saw what a church is.. As many of the church members of my parents church came to my grandmother’s funeral. They didn’t know her but they came because of my parents and to show they care for us and our griefs. Sadly many of my grandmothers relatives and friends far away made excuses how they couldnt come while my parent’s church didn’t even have to. But thats what a church is suppose to be …christians supporting each other through our griefs and hardships and losses; praising Jesus when accompliahments occur. It’s not all the church is but its the part i wish more churches did.
You know lately I’ve been thinking that I need something…someone. In church they said you need someone to pick you up and point you out and tell you this isn’t right. I guess I realized that I ignored that when people told me because its so easy to see how things are right when they are wrong. It’s ridiculous how fast the culture around you can just consume you. yes I said consume. Even my brother’s girlfriend, who isn’t a christian, told me that she suffers from depression because there are just so many times when she doesn’t understand why she’s here, and her purpose. When she told me this…i could hardly believe…that its really really true that we need jesus and the love he offers….otherwise we are just aimless creatures going out to get wasted cause there is no other purpose for us but to try and forget life and swoop into another demension. and yes im writting this at one in the morning
