I’m relaxed, and that’s not good.

Lol…when I asked for suggestions in my last post, I was not prepared to have it liked at all, I was expecting comments more than anything else… 🙂 Anyways, moving on.

I am sure many of you have heard of the persecutions happening to the Christians, Yazidis, and other minorities in northern Iraq.  The atrocities committed are brutally savage and makes you wonder whether this ISIS militants are even human.

Here are a few news articles that I found with a quick search:

Hereherehere, and here(news video+written article).

It is times like this that should make us stop and reflect on our own walk with God.  In the country that I believe many of you live in, you are able to pull out the Bible, while on the street, and not get a potential death threat.  You are able to say out loud and in public that you attend this so and so church and not return home to find your house burned down.

Yet, do we even bother to spend at least a portion each day in opening up that Bible that we own and studying it diligently?  While in other places of the world, a person’s head can be lopped off for the crime of owning a Bible.

Do we just go to church for every service and act solely as a benchwarmer?  While in other places of the world, families are torn apart and destroyed for the crime of gathering as a body of believers to worship God.

It is very easy for us to get used to having freedoms like this, and I am sure we have all been guilty of taking these freedoms for granted.  I have.  In fact, if we stopped to think about it, Satan has used the method of infiltration rather than persecution in the countries with religious freedom.

“…for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of it.” and the devil knows how to use various ways – especially the internet – to distract and sway us in our fellowship with God.  The social media is just out there waving their banner in our faces, getting our attentions.

How much better would the world be if we did as this popular saying states:

Suggestions. anyone?

Hey, y’all! This is just a post to let all of you know that I am open to any suggestion on what I should write on next. Please be warned that I will screen through everything heavily, and if I feel like it’s a subject that isn’t appropriate, it will not be written on.

So, just comment on this post, or on the About page! I still have some things that have already be written, but would like to know what you, as the readers, are interested in.

“I kissed a girl, and I liked it…”

Right now, homosexual marriage and homosexual rights are hot topics. It has been around for a very, very long time and now has been given more leeway. As a Christian, this scares me. This is something that has brought the whole world to a whole new, higher level of immorality and sin.

But, what is so bad about marrying a same sex partner and having couple rights? It’s an easy question to answer from a Christian perspective – the Bible says it is wrong. There.

Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

Romans 1: 26-27 “(26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

Then for those who aren’t Christians, allow me to go into more details – It is not natural.

No one is born a homosexual. There is no gene that says, “Hey, this individual is gonna be a homosexual!”  Just like no one is born with a gene that says, “This dude is going to be a paedophile, a rapist, a murderer, a vegan, a Christian, a Buddhist, etc…”

What happens is that a person chooses to be a lesbian/gay. Homosexuality is a preference, a perversion of nature.  Just as bestiality is.

And the homosexuals are screaming for rights. Please, do not bring up that picture of those African-Americans having protests for civil rights. That is a completely different thing – they wanted to be treated as human beings, and rightfully so. What homosexuals want is to make their life easier so that they can be recognised as a couple, to buy property, insurance, and what a normal heterosexual couple would have.

If various states or countries were to allow this, then why not we also make child marriages easier too? And by child, I mean twelve and younger, as is relatively common in Middle East? Why not make it legal for a human to marry a goat? Why not remove all the laws that prohibit necrophilia? Why not allow a father to divorce his wife and then marry his own daughter?

I may seem harsh, comparing homosexuality to all the rest of what seems like a worse offense. But, there is no such thing as a “worser” offense in God’s eyes. If you sin, it means you have sinned. That’s that, end of discussion.

The reason why the LGBT movement have to be so aggressive and rough is mainly this – they can only recruit they cannot reproduce. Can a woman and another woman, after having sex, produce a baby? What about a man and another man, can they make a baby and give birth? No.

Just gather up all the LGBTs and stick them on an island. Visit them about a hundred years later and the population would have decreased drastically. Sure, some of the couples might have shared their spouses with the opposite sex couples so that they can have children. But, there is no guarantee that the child that is born would be a homosexual. Just as how, in this world where the majority of the population is straight, they still manage to raise children who turn out to be gay.

So, yes, I may sound harsh. But, sin is not something to be taken lightly, and I will not take the subject of homosexuality lightly.

In the Twinkling

Since it is Easter, I thought of these wonderful verses that reminds us saved believers that when we die, we have a glorious home to look forward to! I also hope these verses would cause others to think, “Do I have a part in this everlasting promise?”

1 Corinthians 15:52-55:
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Haha…I just had to underline, italicize, and bold the last verse. Every time I read this aloud, I have the urge to shout it at the top of my lungs! 🙂

The Trolls Are Coming…AAAHHH!!!!!

I am quite active on Google Plus and usually scroll through the “What’s Hot” section. I always come across some post regarding Christianity, like a verse, or a quote based on a verse. And, almost without fail, there are a few kinds of trollers:

1. The cursers and swearers

2. Those that have been educated beyond their level of intelligence (meaning to say that this people have stuffed their brain with too much useless and highly dubious information; therefore, causing their brain to overheat and totally become useless. Most of the time, they don’t even know what they are saying.)

3. The “Amen!” group

4. Once in a very, very long while, those that are truly curious as to what Christianity is about

5. And then, there are some like me, the apologetics

 

The main ones I want to talk about are numbers 1 and 2. Let’s start with number one:

This trolls usually post up a colorful range of imaginative curse words that are designed to set all of us thinking.

Just kidding, they are just a bunch of hobos that want attention and people to come attend their everlasting pity party. Their comments really have no substance, just empty fluff to try to get people to notice their insignificant lives. And, when there is no response to them, they will try to give a few more comments, but if there is ultimately no RSVP to their pity party, then they try their luck somewhere else. If you were to visit their wall feed, you should not be surprised to see that the majority of their post are aimed at ridiculing, blaspheming, and denouncing Jesus Christ.

Good luck trying to carry a coherent debate with them, because the only words they actually know the meaning of, and how to use them, are vulgarities.

 

Then, there is number two. This is a bunch of highly trained intellectuals that are way smarter than any of us will ever be. They are the sages of our time, the ones who will mould and shape our future.

Haha…just kidding again. This are just of people that have a lot of free time on their hands and like to go onto the internet to find things to discredit the reality of the Bible, God, and Jesus Christ. These people are usually a highly advanced form of number one. They do, however, share a similar characteristic, that is, they also love to swear and curse, especially when they know that they are losing their arguments. Even if you present them with irrefutable evidence to their fairy tale claims, they will still cling on to their sinking life boat or they will curse you and your entire lineage and posterity.

For this group, you should be well versed in evolution VS Creation and with common “contradictions” in the Bible. Because, that is their usual ammo.

 

Now, why do I sometimes jump into this foray? Mainly because – it challenges my faith, it teaches me to be a stronger Christian, it gives me plenty of misconceptions the world has with God and the Bible in general. Therefore, it may be draining sometimes, all the getting cursed at and random information being thrown into your face, but it allows me to see God in a whole new different perspective. And, it ultimately makes me thankful that I am already a Child of God. This reminds me of something that Ray Comfort wrote:

“Almost every evening Sue and I watch stress-free rugby. It’s stress free because they are recorded games, and Sue checks the scores to see if our teams won. (If they didn’t, we don’t watch).
That means when the other teams score, we know a secret. We win, no matter what happens.
That’s also why the Christian never gets stressed, because we know a secret. We win no matter what.”

Clean Outside, Dirty Inside

While going through Pilgrim’s Progress, there is a very interesting sentence that Faithful says, “I have heard many cry out against sin in the pulpit, who can yet abide it well enough in the heart, house, and conversation.”

How true is that? How many preachers have committed adultery, theft, and things that should never be associated with a Christian? And, let’s make it personal now, what about YOU? Do you walk the walk and talk the talk, but there is a totally different story in your heart and house? Think about that for awhile.

I have been guilty of that, and still am! It is a constant struggle to always make sure we are doing the right thing. However, we must also remember that we do not do it by our own strength, but through Jesus. And He has promised to uphold us.

 Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” 

Isaiah 43:2 “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

This is just a short sharing. It is intended to make you stop and think. How are you living up to what you are saying? Do you preach or say one thing, but your heart is in total contradiction? Are you – am I – a hypocrite? This actually reminds me of a poem I wrote awhile ago:

At the snap of a finger,
Like a wisp,
Gone the flame –
Never to be seen again.

Like the grass, are the days of man,
Here right now,
Gone the next –
Never to be seen again.

You don’t know when you’d breathe your last.
Could be now,
Could be later –
Never to be seen again.

Will you be ready when your time comes?
Will you be ashamed
Because you’ve not done your best
To live up to His name?

Hey gay rights militants: your fascism is showing

The Matt Walsh Blog

Dear gay rights militants, dear progressive tyrants, dear liberal fascists, dear haters of free speech, dear crusaders for ideological conformity, dear left wing bullies:

You will lose.

I know you’ve got legions of sycophants kowtowing to you these days, and the rest you’ve set out to destroy — but you will lose.

So, you’ve tracked another dissident and skinned him alive. You’ve made an example of Brendan Eich, and now you dance joyously around his disemboweled carcass. You have his head on a spike, and you consider this a conquest in your eternal crusade to eradicate diversity and punish differing opinions. You launched your millionth campaign of intimidation, and now another good man has been dragged through the mud, to the sounds of taunting and jeering and death threats.

You found out that the CEO of Mozilla gave a few dollars to support a pro-traditional marriage ballot measure several…
