Ready. Set. Go.
2016 was the year of tragedy and chaos.
Equality, Black lives matter, LGBT rights, My body my choice, ect. Ect. ect.
The list goes on.
Somewhere along the way we have turned our own agenda into some big war over the biggest cookie.
So here is what I think about all of this.
I feel like we have lost the understanding of what this even means.
We were all created equal in the eyes of our Heavenly Father.
No one is less or more important than the the other.
That is why I don’t understand why some of us are singing to the “Black lives Matter” Or the White lives matter too” mantra. If we are fighting to be equal, then why are we singing our own anthem?
Why are we not singing that we all matter, without condition, without “Well, except for them.”
We all matter, every last living and breathing soul in this universe matters. From the smallest of us, the unborn children to the biggest of us.
Fighting for equality should mean fighting side by side for our lives, for our freedom, because at the moment we are all being held prisoner by the angry agenda wars being waged across our country.
Now here is where it get’s tricky.
Yes, I am a Christian.
I believe in the whole bible, I believe the words of my Lord and savior.
He never said take what you want from the bible and leave the rest.
He did not say love some, but not that person over there!
In the bible it clearly states what is and what is not a sin.
Lying, cheating, stealing, murder and yes even homosexualitly.
Now here is the deal:
Just because I believe it is a sin, does not change the fact that you are a human being. It does not change my compassion, it does not change my love, it frankly does not change anything, because you know what? I am a sinner too, so why on earth would I hate someone who sins same as me?
Now for the hate:
What. on. Earth.
What is all this hate that just pours out of people lately.
Those of you who claim to be Christian and yet sit there filled with hate and loathing.
You are no different from anyone else. You are a sinner who needs to take a strong look at why there is so much hate filling your heart.
I am not just talking about hate towards homosexuality, I am speaking of all of it.
Hate towards someone because they have a different skin tone, hate because they have a different belief, hate because of anything really.
We are not called to hate, we are called to love and that means everyone.
