My friends, I am really annoyed at the moment.
I get really annoyed with ignorance and stupidity.
Some people can't see past the nose on their faces when it comes to matters!
Hey maybe I'm one of them BUT I must vent here.
As you all know, and if you don't you will soon :), I am a Christian. I have a very strong, a very firm belief in God, His son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
Now, I am not a pushy Christian. I will mention my faith and what I believe but if the person I talk to isn't interested, I will not force my beliefs on them. I believe "to each his own".
Now I do minister to people. I do spread the word of God. But I don't expect people to believe as I do.
It takes all kinds to make this wonderful world go round...it really does.
I am a very accepting person. I accept everyone as they are. I do my best not to judge people.
My Bible tells me not too.
"Judge not lest you be judged in the same manner"
Now to what has my panties in a bunch.
I have all kinds of friends on Facebook. Most are people I knew from school and family.
Some are new friends, some church friends, others are friends I haven't even met but we share many of the same past times like crocheting. Not all of my friends are Christians. I accept that.
Well, some of my friends are Atheists. They will post Atheist materials on Facebook.
Most I can overlook but there is some that just doesn't have their facts straight.
The one I am talking about in particular is a person talking to God asking Him why He hates Gays.
God replies that He doesn't hate gays and goes on to say that He (God) has to clear his name because He didn't write the Bible.
Well, This one got to me. I didn't comment because this is this person's beliefs.
This thing just isn't true.
For one, NO God Himself didn't write the Bible.
The people who wrote the books of the Bible were inspired to do so.
By God Himself
Most of the Bible is an account of history.
It is one of the Greatest stories.
Full of love, wars, miracles.
It is a book of hope.
The words in that book get me through every day of my life.
Secondly, the Bible doesn't say that God HATES gay people.
It says it is a sin, an abomination.
This was in the old testament when the ground rules were set.
As a matter of fact, the Bible, Jesus says the greatest of the commandments is to love one another.
He doesn't say to love only straight people, white people, rich people, only people who do things for you.
It says to love EVERYONE!
Now I know that I may get some grief over what I have posted here and you know what...that is okay.
Everyone has a system of beliefs.
Not everyone believes the same things.
I read my Bible. I believe it. I don't believe extras man may put in. I believe my Bible.
I love everyone. I even love those who have wronged me. I pray for them. I may not like them too much but I love them.
Now just one more thing.
I don't understand Atheists! I honestly and truly don't.
You see, their beliefs are that there is not a higher power. There isn't a God.
Well, how can a person be against something if it doesn't exist. Why call yourself an atheist and say you are against God if in your eyes, He doesn't exist.
A person would have to believe that He exists in some form in order to be against Him.
I dunno. It confuses me.
Okay, my rantings are over.
I hope you all are having a great day/evening.
I had a blast today and there should be a blog post pretty soon with some pics.
I love each of you who happen to read this post/blog.
