i dnt care to get involved in that sort of thing because people are gnna do what they want to do
i can bless u, i can give u encouragement, i can love you, but i can't make u change
so i dnt really concern myself with the sins of people around me
i dnt care to judge people
there is a situation where i will judge you and/or cut u out of my life, stay away from u, lose respect for you, etc
what is that situation?
when people try to give God characteristics that fit their lifestyle
u learn about God and who He is.. YOU DNT TELL GOD WHO HE IS
this is a very easy way to get on my nerves or get me to lose my respect for you
when u say something stupid like "i think God made homosexuals"
or if you say something like "i think God is a woman" (and i'm not saying God is a man because God is neither, however at the same time God is described as the Father, so giving him feminine characteristics is just completely off and borders blasphemy)
i hate it when people just say whatever about God.. like you LEARN ABOUT WHO GOD IS FROM HIS WORD.. YOU DNT CREATE AN OPINION ABOUT GOD AND FOLLOW THAT OPINION
when u do something like that, u might as well be into greek mythology.. cuz they created their own gods and then worshipped them
that's why its called MYTHOLOGY
STOP GIVING GOD CHARACTERISTICS THAT DNT COINCIDE WITH THE BIBLE IN ANY WAY.. IF U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT GOD THEN DNT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT GOD
ok to add to it, i'd say those were the p positives
however u are also pretty much guaranteed another p which is not positive... persecution
persecution can come in a lot of diff ways
like we are fortunate today in that our persecution is a lot of times just people not accepting us for our lifestyle.. or people calling us corny or lame or weak or people not wanting arelationship with us because we do not indulge in lustful/immoral/selfish/superficial behavior
i have definitely experienced this
if i was to give a fellow Christian a word of advice dealing with persecution i'd say seek out refuge from Christian sources.. the Bible, prayer, Christian books, pray for Christian friends etc.. keep your Christian perspective fresh in your mind
i have been trying to stay right with God and He's been really coming through for me in this regard.. i said a few prayers about having Christian people around me and now i live with 3, and work with 2.. ask for something according to His will and He will come through for you in that regard
just last semester i was living with some cool people but they were always talking about sex and drinking and actually having sex and drinking lol.. i'd sometimes put my headphones on because every other word i'd hear was the F-word or whatever.. i'd find condoms in the trash and things of this nature.. they'd invite people over i'd be like hey what's up and they'd tell me their latest dirty joke and expect me to laugh.. bi-sexual people would be coming over looking perverted in their face by itself almost like prince or some ish
i am not judging them or anything its just that that kind of stuff is not what i want to be around as a Christian.. they don't understand me and i understand them because i was born in the flesh but i am constantly trying to live above my worldly desires
like i said, we are fortunate in that a lot of our persecution is mere self-denial and/or loss of "friends"
i count this as God's mercy and i thank Him for it.. none of my friends or family have had to endure a beating or a prison sentence for making Christ the lord of their life
soooo in the vain of telling the WHOLE truth.. the 4 p's are positive but there is also a negative p
the p of persecution... but the good news is the Bible is written from the beginning to the end and we win in the end so when u deny ur flesh or the person u want to keep in ur life leaves u because u want to live right, just count it joy cuz God's watching you and He's going to make it right as He is the just judge of all things (and also remember that while u have one negative p, you have 4 positive ones!)
weeping may endure for a night but we goin ham in the morning!
i hate the concept of bastards Posted by poolboyjames on September 20, 2010 at 11:52 PM comments (0)FIRST: this doesn't apply to everyone who grew up without a dad.. the Bible says God will be a father to the fatherless.. so some people grew up without a man in their life but still turned out good and had good morals instilled in them..
this is about the people who are seriously lacking guidance in their life.. people who seriously are deprived and who remain deficient because of it.. the people who grew up without men in their lives.. bump it, men in their NEIGHBORHOOD!!!.. the ones who become gay because they never had a decent male role model.. the ones who feel like they are worthless, the ones who r almost doomed to spend time in prison, etc
this might sound bad but i am so tired of bastards and the people who make them
i am talkin about literal bastards.. people who had no dad in their life and/or no discipline and/or no real concept of God
those three things in my opinion are oftentimes synonymous
a man is supposed to be like the representative of and for Christ to his family.. he's supposed to be the leader and be like yo this is what it is, this is what we believe... this is why, etc.
so people without a dad oftentimes grow up not knowing God, and even if they did they oftentimes lack the discipline necessary to keep a decent relationship with God because they never got the discipline of a man in their life, so now, lacking in discipline, all their lusts and sins pull them away from the truth
it seems like everytime i turn on the tv and i see someone say something mindblowingly ignorant, it is sooner or later revealed that that person's father was not in the picture when they were growing up
my message to dads: when that girl ur having sex with gets pregnant.. be a decent (and wise) guy and get a blood test
if its urs then make sure ur in that kid's life
if its not then go on about ur business
what u men have been doing is just getting women pregnant and saying its not ur child and not ever getting a blood test.. so no one knows who the dad is sometimes.. be a decent guy and pay for a blood test for the child's sake
my message to chicks: up your standards and stop messing with guys who lack self control.. stop messing with "bad boys" ..for some reason 'bad' in 2010 seems to equal "fun" or "cool" or "interesting" or "exciting"
well.. just for you, i looked up the dictionary definition of the word 'bad'
bad |bad| adjective
1 of poor quality; inferior or defective
• (of a person) not able to do something well; incompetent
2 unpleasant or unwelcome
• unsatisfactory or unfortunate
• unfavorable; adverse
• not suitable
doesn't seem very fun, cool, interesting, or exciting now does it?
i dnt kno where its at or what it says exactly but there's a place in the bible that says something like.. fathers guide ur children so that they will do the Lord's will (paraphrased.. maybe i will be able to find the exact quote later) .. in other words its like saying.. if u do not father ur child, then when they are an adult, I (God) will likely not be able to father them (because u haven't prepared them for this type of relationship)
in other words do not create a beautiful child, leave them to fend for themselves in perception as well as protection and provision.. because in doing so u end up creating a disdainful bastard.. someone without discipline without a clear moral conscience.. someone who cannot be told anything.. people who live on impulse
today i turned on the tv after class and maury was on
they were doing paternity tests again
this woman came on the show saying this black guy was her kid's father but the kid looked MEXICAN!
so maury pulls out the test and tells the black guy he's not the father and the girl runs backstage in shame
should this be happening?
this is the kind of commotion this child is born into
this is ridiculous
and on top of all this ridiculousness.. HER CHILD IS A LITERAL BASTARD NOW
she will likely be consumed with working full time and trying to find and keep a man in her life
leaving her child to feel neglected and raise himself in a lot of ways
i don't know what it is but the more i perceive things for what they are, the more i dislike the whole concept of bastards
stop making them
it starts with you and what u choose to do with your body
but the aftermath is felt for years and years to come
who is down for the traditional family like me?
LETS BRING IT BACK!!!
NO MORE NEGLECTED KIDS AND BASTARDS THAT GROW UP AND COMMIT CRIMES BECAUSE THEY GREW UP WITHOUT!
WE WANT WHOLE FAMILIES THAT ARE COMPLETE THAT GIVE HONOR TO GOD IN THEIR VERY EXISTENCE!!
