I hate browsing the internet. I really do. You might wonder why I haven't noticed a certain artist or writer until one of my friends mention the person, but it's mainly because I hate the cynical or sardonic or hateful way the world is and it's fleshed out a lot through the internet.
Ya know, as a Christian,Christ told his followers to, "Love your neighbor", (read the parable of the Good Samaritan to understand what a neighbor is categorized) which means that even if they are of a different faith, sex-preference, murderer, liar, cheater, or are haters, we still need to love them.
"Love" does not equate to "agree with".
"Love" is when you're willing to die or live for another.
"Love" means that I will talk with you, laugh with you, cry for you, and be willing to help you in your time of need.
So when I see my belief being mocked everywhere I turn on-line, I feel...alone.
I know some of you are like, "There are lots of Christians", but I hardly see them. It's one of the main reasons I have to quickly leave this site because of all of the lies that spewed out about God's word. I read on people's pages EVERY DAY, let me repeat, EVERY DAY that say something like, "The Bible teaches hate", "The Bible supports rape", "The Bible is for stupid people", "God hates homosexuals", and "Jesus was a di*k".
You might be thinking, "Don't take this personally." However, it would be like someone talking about how letters that your mom sent to you were filled with lies and that she hates your guts when she sent the letter to help you out. For a Christian, we decided to follow Jesus and His word because we believe that He died on the cross and then rose from the dead so that those who believe in Him DON'T have to go to a place that wasn't even meant for us (was only meant for Satan and the fallen angels, so if you want to get pissed off with somebody, get mad at Satan...and don't say how God made him that way. No, God gave him the freedom along with all of his other creations to choose Him or to rebel.) and live in Heaven with Him. We believe that, so when people mock God's word, it's like mocking someone that means a lot to you.
Another example, I don't believe in Buddhism, but I'm not going to run around or post a lie about how Buddhism is for stupid people or that it teaches hate. Um...I know a lot of people that are buddhists and some of them are sweet.
Look, I'll admit, I got very angry a few months ago when someone posted how stupid it was to be a Christian and how smart evolution was. Well, I pointed out all of the flaws with evolution to that person, yet had to stop myself when I remembered........that's not what I'm meant to do.
I'm not meant to bash about other people's sins nor get into arguments where I'm just going to be chasing after rabbits.
As I said earlier, "love" is what is most important.
I know what I believe and I know why. I will continue to love on all of you, even if it hurts or if it's really hard to. But I will never reject who I fell in love with that had loved me first as well as all of you.
If you guys are wondering what this journal is about, it's about me saying that I hate how everywhere I turn there's something hateful or mocking towards my Lord and Savior. I won't comment on the people's pages or deviations that do this, so I'm letting you know here that if I don't watch you or stopped watching you.......it'll most likely be because of this here. You can post up dirty pictures out of nowhere and I'm fine (happens a lot). But mock who I love whether it's Christ or a friend and I'll unwatch you as well as most likely block you. I'm serious. Don't hurt those I love.
(P.S.: If you send me a note about this, it best not be insulting or else I'm deleting it and not responding. As I said, I'm not meant to argue and I will avoid the temptation of arguing with someone that just wants to inflate their ego or esteem.)
