Let praises fill the sky.
If you want to break the sin habit, you need to establish a prayer habit.

One day, your homosexual friend might come around to the beauty of a biblical marriage between one man and one woman. One day, your friend might understand that you respect him or her no matter what. One day, your friend might look at your marriage and want something like that, if there is something worth showing (oh church, if you’d only see yourselves). One day, your friend might be hit with the true heart of the Gospel and experience the total grace of Jesus — one day.

But whether or not that happens, you keep loving on your friend. Dang it, we better love this world like crazy. No one is a project. We are not “superior” to them. We are not the harbinger of justice or Advice-Robot 2000 or the fixer of all things wrong. You are one flawed human being who is called to love another flawed human being. You love them. Jesus died for you and for them too.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
— Hebrews 13:8 (via thechristopherglen)

One of the biggest attractions I find in a man is a man who isn’t afraid to raise his hands and praise Jesus Christ.

Pray, not because people are doing it, but because it’s the least you could do for all those who are affected. Pray for everyone. When you pray, pray sincerely, and with honor and respect to God, pray with a boldness, and don’t just pray for the people you know and love, pray for those who you may not trust, or for those you may not get along with, and for those who you may not know that need it. Pray because God listens, and pray because God cares. When prayers go up, blessings come down.

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you — he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.
— Deuteronomy 31:8 (via heidi-ch)

Am I a Monster?

Orthodox Christianity is Christianity that agrees with the historical church. Yet if this is the case, then orthodox Christianity is really not entirely orthodox. Much of what is considered “orthodoxy” comes from after the 5th century A.D. But what about the previous 400 years? There is a doctrine known as “Original Sin” that was not held by practically anyone in the church until almost the 400’s. There are the theologians of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th centuries who either outrightly denied an idea of “depraved man” or didn’t mention it at all. This blog post written by Matthew Schraud contains the “doctrine of man” as was held by those of the early church.

PLEASE. ATTENTION. IMPORTANT. PLEASE. My followers from all around the world. This is the first time i’m asking for something THIS serious. And i need, we need your support. Turkish people, my people are standing up for their rights, after a long long time. First it started as a protest against a mall that will be built in one of our historical parks. But then it got bigger, it’s not only about the trees anymore. It’s about the people who got beaten, who got thrown tear gas bombs to their heads, who got intentionally hit by police cars, and killed. In here we are not allowed to speak are minds anymore, and media is not helping either. Help us spread the word, let the world know about what’s happening here. I’m asking, wanting you to reblog this. Please. Once you finish reading this, please reblog.

he knows exactly what we think anyway, and would rather hear our honest cries of hurt, outrage, and accusation than false cries of praise.
