As a frequent social media user, I see a lot of things happen on a regular basis. I see girls wanting to be in a relationship so bad, that they’d do anything for a man’s approval. I see guys who take advantage of a new girl every weekend. I see parents who love their children, and think so highly of them, while their children are running around getting drunk and high, without their parents suspecting a thing. I see people who are in unequally yoked relationships, who think that they will some how convince their significant other to come to Jesus if they just stay with them a little longer.
More than anything, I see tons of broken people, broken relationships, and broken morals due to the increasing popularity of allowing sins to be “okay”, according to our standards, and dismissing what the Bible says as ancient and outdated.
If you ARE a christian:
You can’t believe some things in the Bible are not true, and others are, just to fit the way you live. That’s not the way it works. You going to church on Sundays, and sleeping around during the rest of the week, are completely contradictory. (Ephesians 5:3 ‘Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.’) The fact that you think that it is ok, is completely un-biblical and therefore un-christian. And it’s not just sleeping around, insert whatever sin you are struggling with in its place.
The good news? Church is a place full of broken people, for broken people. Putting on a front doesn’t do good for anybody. Realizing that your struggles, are something you have to deal with is the first step. As long as you take that first step, God, through his spirit, and the Bible, will teach you how to live righteous. But you have to come to the realization that everything in the Bible is true, and is there for the edifying and betterment of the believers.
If you ARE NOT a christian:
I’m sure we must come off as a lot of arrogant jerks, irrelevant crooks and chronic arguers. The truth is, that we are just broken as anyone else. Most of us (I wish all of us) would admit that we don’t have it all together. We don’t understand everything. But we wholeheartedly believe that there is a God who does, and He loves us despite our imperfections. We mess up, we fail, & a lot of times we show it to you. I can’t apologize for everyone but I do for myself. I’m sorry.
