The people who come running to hug you after you haven’t seen them in awhile are my favorite type of people.
Agree, SO HARD.
Hi! I've just been reading through your blog, and find it incredibly interesting. I was just curious, given you are against gay marriage, but believe God loves everyone, what would you say if your son or daughter was gay?
My hope would be that I’d have the same intent as Jesus, who (according to John 3:17) came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
I’m so glad that Jesus came first to save the world. It gives us a second chance to get our lives right with God so that when God does in fact judge the world, we can actually make it through the fire unscathed.
So what would my response be if my son had illicit thoughts and feelings? The goal would be to encourage him to lay that at the foot of the cross where he has put all of his selfishness, pride, jealousy, and hatred.
There’s no inclination or desire that gets to trump God’s plan for our lives. No passion or affection or lust that gets to come before His will. Following Jesus means a complete life-surrender.
The Bible says to take every thought captive. Our minds and hearts are where real spiritual warfare takes place.
Without God’s help there’s pretty much no way to fend off lust, anger, depression, addiction etc. But with His help, we can not only not give in, but we have the hope of becoming completely different people.
Witness protection has nothing on our God’s ability to change our identity. If there’s anyone who can remake, reorient, revive, and restart someone, it’s almighty God Yahweh.
He did it for me. And He’s still doing it for me. And He can do it for you.
Very few people will be at my school's flag pole, and my community is very anti-religion. The Civil Rights team put posters up discouraging SYATP. Can you pray for us?
It’s so funny that a civil rights group would discourage the exercising of a civil right. Hope it went well.
That is so funny. Kind of like when a religion that preaches love encourages hate. Right?
Absolutely. That’s why the only religion I endorse is one where Jesus Christ is King.
God is love. Let’s be like God and love people.
