Sensitive, controversial topics amongst Christians concerning the LGBTQ - everyone either stuffs it in a box and avoids it like the plague or goes full-on war zone style and ruins people for life.

The only thing we all keep forgetting is WWJD: what would Jesus do?

Jesus ate with the sinners and tax collectors, allowed his feet to be washed by a prostitute. His answer every time was, "He who is without sin, be the first one to throw a stone" (John 8:7) and "love your neighbour as yourself" and "do not judge unless you too want to be judged" (Luke 6:37. Judgement is God's department, sin is something we should leave for God alone to deal with.
All Jesus asked us as people, His followers, to do is love the broken and help the confused. Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you. That is all.

Yes, admit that you do not accept or agree with the sin, do not compromise as a Christian and stand up for the truth. We have the same rights to freedom of speech and belief as anyone else. Yes, remember that God designed and created each person with a specific identity and gender (Genesis 1-2: He created them male and female). And yes, the Bible says it is wrong to dress and be like the opposite sex (Deut 22:5). But Jesus himself showed that it is okay to love and be friends with the broken and confused (Matt 9:10-17, Mark 2:15-22, Luke 5:29-39). Do not treat them with disgust, but love them.

We should give people what they need - love and acceptance. We should not give them what they deserve, that is for God to decide and do, yet even Jesus loved and accepted people without judging.

I got this memorial tattoo to remember my late brother Mario (KY7107). I had it put on me on his birthday the year he pass on. The Punisher because he loved comic books and The Punisher. The Thin Blue Line Flag in the back because he was a Navajo Nation Police Department Officer, loves his job and what it stood for. Not a lot of people agree with my tattoo but it’s my way to remember him and also honor him. I love you man, happy angle birthday big bro. #KY7107 #EOW07212016 #NavajoNationPolice #ThinBlueLine #BackTheBlue #ThePunisher #ThinBlueLineTattoo #IGY6 #HonorTheBrave #GoneButNotForgotten #BlessedAreThePeaceMakers #Matthew5:9

July 21, 1988 - DeAndre Jordan is born in Houston, Texas. Happy 30th Birthday DeAndre Jordan! He played one season of college basketball for Texas A&M University before being selected by the Clippers in the second round of the 2008 NBA draft with the 35th overall pick. Jordan is a three-time All-NBA and two-time NBA All-Defensive Team member, and has twice led the league in rebounding. In 2017, he was named an NBA All-Star for the first time. Jordan currently holds the NBA record for best career field goal percentage at 67.4%. On July 6, 2018, Jordan signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks. Jordan is a Christian. Jordan prays frequently and has spoken about his faith saying, "I know my relationship with Christ, and I know what he has done for me, and that is what I live on." Jordan has a tattoo of Matthew 5:4-5 on his chest, a Christian cross on his left arm, the Serenity Prayer and his own message saying "I thank God for the gift that he has given me. I will honor, sacrifice, and dedicate myself to my talent. I know where I have come from but I know where I am going" on his right arm, and Philippians 4:13 with praying hands and "G.W.O.M" (God Watch Over Me) on his stomach.

Hours after learning about the horrible incident on the lake this evening, my nightly bible study included a passage from Luke. Where Jesus calms the wind and seas. #isntitironic Moments like these are so hard. Why would God allow this to happen? It was supposed to be a fun time for family and friends. It is these moments that we must turn to God in our grief and confusion and allow his love and grace to comfort us. #Luke8 #Matthew5:4

(Once again, I know there are much better verses that I could comment on, especially since Matthew 5 is the Sermon on the Mount, but this metaphor stuck out to me.)
-
There are a lot of metaphors in the Sermon on the Mount, so when it says Jesus' followers are salt it's not meaning in a literal sense. What is the meaning behind metaphor? Salt had two purposes in these times in the Middle East: -
Salt was used to preserve food from spoiling because refridgeration wasn't a concept that had been invented yet. Like salt, as believers we are called to preserve the world from evil intention in a lost and broken world that is slowly spoiling.
-
Salt was and still is used to enhance flavor. In the same way, believers, are used to enhance the flavor of life on the earth. Christ followers ate called to influence the earth for good by returning good for evil.
-
We lose our saltiness through failure to daily take up our cross and follow Jesus wholeheartedly. In order to stay salty (the good kind) we need to make choices pleasing to the Lord and that follow His commandments rather than ones that are evil or even convenient and comfortable. -
We can only grow if we get out our comfort zone. We need need to stay focused and obedient to Christ.

Be happy for others, what they have is theirs. What God has for you will come when you celebrate the success of others. Never be afraid to help someone out, even if it doesn't work out for you at the end. God will bless those who remember that the meek shall inherit the earth
#Matthew5:5

“God wants you to be exactly who he made you to be, no matter who is watching.  We’re interested in image, but God is interested in integrity. We’re interested in reputation, but God is interested in character. Reputation is what everybody thinks you are. Integrity is what you really are. Reputation is what you are in public. Integrity is what you are when you’re all alone with God.” Rick Warren

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand and it gives light to all on the house. .

"One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple." -Psalm 27:4

You think you know beautiful, but you don't. I don't. We have weak versions of beauty here.  Not only that, but the standard is so subjective.  If we could just free our mind and consequently our eyes, we'd see genuine beauty. It's all wrapped up in Him. Here's how beautiful He is:
-
Every part of His Heart, all of His desire and the totality of His Being is obsessed with you. There's nothing more beautiful than that. Nothing. Every day, His Beauty is true and constant while earthly beauty deteriorates daily.

I can point to the Cross and to His miracles, to His care and compassion in order to highlight His Beauty, but even His "no", His discipline, His judgement are beautiful. Have you ever read Matthew 5 or any passage that guides and warns and realized the intense beauty behind the words? He has given us all we need to escape a decaying world. Yes,  it can be "harsh" but that's because our understanding of the looks of it are tainted by our human standard of beauty. I'm telling you,  all of what He's doing, saying, directing, manifesting, and revealing is the beauty that your eyes seek.

One day, if we're faithful, we'll look at His Beauty forever, but even now, I pray we can see that He is altogether Beautiful.

Matthew 5 Aramaic translation in plain English
This with the inability to not feel the holy spirit is the condemnation of your lives
The translation along with sway to worldly ideologies of certain freedoms of moral,value is death and death alone
There will be no true blessing and you will always ask yourself why is the world like this and you will seek to change something that is your fault
You'd tell yourself ik someone better
And you will be bitter by your own opinion,that of man which is like dust in the wind (took that from Solomon lol)
Power to do what ever means what? Force.
You can seek food from a bees nest to supply food but if they attacked you, you can be victim
Do you think they understand?
Their whole life they know one way and they won't expect outsiders to share in the spoils of their hard work.
Its life
A point proven is humbling but to change it is a miracle.
But to dominate as if your proving something is obvious rejection which means what?
No hope.
No faith.
Does the truth set you free?
No not in the world
Only the truth which is the Bible and
They've molested the meaning of this "saying" in general society
And they continue to sway God's children
Away from true faith by replacing it with Allegiance and pride a back and forth,God said woe to them.
So next time you see something immoral think to yourself and say I could thank them, because God's gona kill us because of these facts.so thank you thank you very much for the freedom to be Homo lol and cheat and be liars and murderers in your own rights and position in life ..... thank you very much

9 months old today and she’s still in the newborn lounger! Oh those #turnergirls 🦋
-
She’s adjusting to life without the #spicacast She was so tender after the cast removal that the slightest touch would cause her sensory overload, poor thing! -

she’s wearing a brace so for 4 weeks and she still won’t be able to get much mobility, but after that we will work on sitting up and then rolling over and then crawling and then one day walking. Tears are coming to my eyes as I write this. Lucy has overcome a lot and I believe her breech position helped saved her life. I am so thankful for our current medical advancement in society that they can help #medicallyfragile babies and kids survive and thrive ❤️ forever thankful that my baby can get practically all fixed up. -

Happy 9 months baby girl, you fill my heart with your Light!

Sometimes you might wonder if the work you're doing for God's kingdom is at all worthwhile or making any real impact on the world, or even on a single person. Jesus assures us in Matthew 5 that those who work earnestly for his kingdom are his children, are blessed, are going to be satisfied eternally. You may not see the fruits of your labors on this side of heaven, but be assured that GOD sees you and your heart ✨💗☀️

Let your light shine bright for all the world to see! Stay salty! #acclaimed #matthew5:14-16

But now I tell you:
Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may become the children of your Father in heaven.
