Sticks and Stones….

There has been a resurgence of arguments against my views on feminism. Since it has become popular to fight with me again, I would like to say this:


If you are going to disagree with me and challenge my views, please find Bible verse to back you up. Bible verses in context. I will be open to your argument. Because I, personally, am confident in my Biblical use and I know that I am doing what God is calling me to do.


So, argue with me all you want, but it better be Biblical if you expect me to listen. I don’t care what any mainstream media has to say about the matter or a dictionary, or your friend, I care about what God has to say.


Thanks everyone. I honestly do love all of you, even if we disagree.

Getting Started

We’re at the point where Jesus starts preaching! **Excitement**

Today we read Matthew 4:12-17 and Mark 1:14-15. Jesus heads out to Galilee (Fulfilling the prophecy in Isaiah 9:1-2) and what’s the first thing He does?

He says, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

I don’t really think that this is insignificant. The very first thing Jesus preaches about, proclaims, is repentance.

Hm. Maybe it’s important…..?

So, the definition of repentance: Real penitence; sorrow or deep contrition for sin, as an offense and to dishonor to God, a violation of His holy law.

Just think about it for a minute, really. The VERY first thing Jesus talks about is repentance.

One other thing is that Jesus proclaimed, not just preached. He said things boldly, without worrying whether or not people agreed with Him. He knew the important thing was speaking about what God wanted Him to speak about.

So, did I put enough emphasis on repentance?

Get Behind Me

The Temptation of Jesus (Mark 1:12-13, Matthew 4:1-11, Luke 4:1-13)

This is pretty well known story. Jesus fasts for forty days and nights and the devil tempts Him three times.

There’s a few important things to note with this passage. The first thing that jumped out at me was that the devil used scripture too. He used scripture against Jesus.

Let that sink in.

I think that relates to today a lot. People misquote the Bible, use verses out of context (which ALWAYS bad) or just misuse it. And that’s dangerous. I try to be careful about doing that myself.

The devil is smart, unfortunately for us. He will use what we trust against us.

So, what Jesus did was counter him with more scripture. Jesus knew the Word and that is how he stayed away from temptation.

Also, Jesus was not passive. He did not shy away from the challenge that Satan presented. He was authoritative in His use of scripture.

We need to use the Bible more, guys. That should always be our first  resort, not the last. I need to get better about that.

Any thoughts on the Temptation?

What Makes it Worthwhile

Sometimes I wonder if I’m supposed to be blogging. Honestly, it makes some people very angry.

My posts on feminism and homosexuality got lots of hateful comments or people arguing with me in a way meant to make me feel bad, stooping to name-calling at times even.

My series of posts on dating damaged a friendship for a while, which hurt.

Why do I persist?

Well, it honestly doesn’t matter how many people I offend. It doesn’t matter how many times I get cussed at or called stupid.

It matters how many people I touch. How many people I reach.

I believe I am doing the right thing. I pray about my posts and comments and firmly believe that Christians are meant to be outspoken about issues like these.

As long as I get one person who says “Thank you for that” or just one person who saw a new, good perspective, then all the persecution is worth it. Every word that hurt me, every uncomfortable situation is worth one person saying that my post helped them consider what God has to say.

I am not completely selfless or else I would say I am doing this entirely to bring people to God. Sometimes I blog for me. Yes, I like the popularity. I’m human.

But at the core of it all I want to bring God glory. I want to show people what I have seen  in the truth of the Bible. I do not think I am self-righteous. I do not believe I am better than anyone else and I hope I do not come across that way. I just want people to see God in the issues we’re dealing with today.

That is why I blog.

You mad, bro?

Ok, I get it. I’m a controversial person.

I post things you might not like.

However, I’m very open about how I’m a Christian and these posts are from a Christian viewpoint. If all you’re going to do is insult me and try to tear apart my argument, even if you run out of points, then go find another blogger to try and destroy. Feel free to read, but please don’t be so rude in the comments.

If you are actually open to other people’s opinions and Christianity, then I do encourage you to read and comment. I love a nice discussion.

What gets me is when someone gets on me, telling my opinion is **** and to get my *** off  the internet and that they don’t give a flying **** about my opinion… well then I get a little annoyed.

Seriously, if you don’t care about my opinion, why are you getting so worked up about it?

Because I do my very best to be polite and understanding when conversing with people about my blog. And if you want to get anywhere with me, then stop insulting me. Don’t accuse me of being hateful and judgmental when I’m simply putting my beliefs into words.

You don’t see me cussing you out, saying your opinion is stupid, or telling you to stop shoving your religion down my throat.

A little respect is all I’m asking for.

So, you mad bro? Don’t tell me unless you can control yourself. Common courtesy, folks.

“Be more like Jesus”

So, I had someone accuse of me not “being like Jesus” a few posts ago because I posted about something controversial and it came across as offensive to some people.

However, I was not hateful or condemning. So I very much did not appreciate that comment.

This IS me trying to be like Jesus. He did not just sit in the corner and say how much he accepted everybody’s sin and that we should never hold each other accountable.

Guys, Jesus got angry. He flipped tables. He called the Pharisee’s out on their hypocrisy. He tried to get people to see their sins so that they could repent.

This idea that Christians are never supposed to offend people is ridiculous. That’s how we got where we are today, with churches condoning homosexuality, and this whole idea that all Christians are supposed to do is love everyone.

Of course loving other people is important. But part of loving someone is steering them away from what they’re doing wrong, not letting them continue on.

So you know what? I think I’m doing a pretty ok job of getting out there and talking about things that need to be talked about.

I’m not saying I’m the perfect reincarnation of Jesus, far from it, but I’m tired of passive Christians and I don’t want to be one.

Any thoughts?
