Ugh ok so today on my FB news feed, someones offensive crap popped up about their opinion on Gay Marriage and how the bible says its an Abomination etc…. And i hate to get into these conversations because i HATE
a.Arguing about stupid shit that the world will never COMPLETELY agree on
b.Purposely violating peoples personal beliefs and freedom of speech and opinion.
c.Going off on people on social network sites
d.Blantantly talking openly about my sexuality and my relationship because its none of anybodies business but mine, the person i’m dating, my very close friends and family, and God’s
HOLD IT!!!!Now with that said please don’t think that i’m not trying to hide my sexuality, because i will be the first to tell you sorry hun, i’m gay. Or i’ll talk about what me and my boyfriend were arguing about etc (hypothetically speaking).
Onward with the story…
Well of course this builds some controversy and because i have this person listed as a close friend on FB whenever someone comments it pops right back into my news feed…. so i’m going throughout the day constantly seeing what people are posting and i start to get pissed off… so i decided to post my ever prominent phrase “Wow….” and continue on with my day and i just continue to fume and get more and more pissed about the comments that are being made about how God dislikes this and God Hates this and all that bullshit. So now not only have you hit my sexuality and how you think its wrong, but you’ve also hit my religion and beliefs about God and who he really is. And then it hits me… i have to say something. I can’t just continue to sit back and watch anymore because i’m PISSED to the core and multiple people have said very offensive things and those who are trying to defend the right, aren’t verbally coming across in a manner that is calm, they’re just fueling the fire…. SOOOOOOO i begin to write (And if you’re reading this *you know who you are* you know what happens when i just start writing). So by the end i’m pretty sure my comment was about an essays worth. And honestly, i’m pretty proud of it. (yes i’m posting it for all of you :D)
“Ok i’m tired of seeing this pop upon my feed and not saying anything so here it is.
Bottom line whether you’re for or against any type of homosexual relations this status offended a lot of people… including myself. And most of the people that have talked to me being offended aren’t even homosexual. It is fine to have an opinion, this is your wall do what you want with it. But consider the other people who are your friends, and people that consider you FAMILY in their home and have taken you in as a brother or sister before you decide to post something like this because at the end of the day you don’t know who it going to hit, and how offensive your statement can be.
I am VERY religious and i believe in God and Jesus Christ just as any other Christian. And although it does say that Homosexuality was an abomination, there are multiple other things that God and the Community believed were to be either an abomination or a sin.
1.piercings or tattoo’s
2.wearing more than one material in clothing
3.anal stimulation or sex (Male or Female)
Over the years those things have been laxed both by believers and non-believers. So why is this any different? The last time i checked all sin is equal, and no one follows the bible to the perfect “T.”
The bible was not written for Christians to ridicule others for the way they live, it was written as a guideline to live your life by, meaning that YES, WE ALL WILL SIN AND FALL SHORT to the glory of God. But HE is the one who will judge us in the end, NOT ANYONE on this earth. Our job as Christians is to LOVE everyone and spread the love and word of Jesus Christ and how he died for ALL our sins so that we can all be saved by his grace. Not just heterosexuals, whites, blacks, rich, or poor; EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES.
And as far as belief in the bible goes, You must also take into account that the Bible was not written by God himself. it was written by man. And ALL MANKIND is flawed. That doesn’t mean the bible is flawed, however that does mean that the very people that claimed to write these books in the name of Christ could have easily lied, just as MANKIND is prone to do, because we are prone to sin. Even the Devil himself was an Angel at one point. You also must look at the fact that there are other chapters of the bible that didn’t even make it into the bible because the CHURCH ruled them out… Meaning that the very words that were written didn’t make it because another MAN said they were not worthy of it.
To clarify, I do read the bible, and i very much so believe in the bible, However i also look at the possibility that not everything in the bible, is necessarily so. Jesus Christ himself had a great dislike for the church and what they preached. While he walked this earth, he was all about love. AND took the people that NO ONE considered religious or holy in any manner from tax collectors, to prostitutes and used them as vessels to spread the word of God and his LOVE for all who accepted him.
So before you tell me that my love for another man, or anyone else’s love for another HumanBeing is wrong, or an abomination, be sure to check yourself and your sins, before you go tossing out someone else’s and talking about YOUR OPINION about MY GOD, who loves me and every aspect of me, regardless of who i’m with, what i’m wearing, or what piercing or tattoo i have on my body.
And i’m not posting this to get this argument started on here, but since this is a blog… and i think i expressed my point pretty well i thought i’d share, you don’t necessarily have to agree, nor do i want you to feel like i want you to do so. But at some point i needed to get this out of my system and here it is. and hopefully i don’t have to talk about it anymore. haha
LOVE MY FOLLOWERS :) Especially the ones who read all the way down to the last line haha :) MUCH LOVE
