YOU SAY YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN

BUT, YOU'RE ACTUALLY A LIAR...

YOU SAY YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN

You have a prayer plaque by your door...

You hold a Bible while you sit in Church...

A true Christian knows right from wrong and they try their very best knowing they are who God says they are...

He says you're His Child and He loves you...

That's not good enough to be better than what you are...

You will inherit the Kingdom of God...

​​​​​​But why do you not need to follow His ways?

If I follow the ways of many I would find it extremely difficult to look in the mirror and believe my own lies, lying to others and lying to God...

Those we're supposed to bless we curse...

Many can't even follow that simple command...
​​​​​​
Do you think He doesn't see you when you give yourself away?

When you steal that too must be okay...

What if the crime was against you?

Would you be hurt?

Would you feel angry?

Would you give the robber as many belongings as the thief can carry?

Would you cry to God and ask Him to set it straight?

Would you say it's okay God forgives you and so do I as you look at the blade before your throat gets cut...

You say you're a Christian...

You tell people what's wrong is right...

You kiss your crucifix as God knows you're a liar...

Convince yourself you"re saved...

Only thing you haven't done is spit on His Sandals...

You're going to inherit the Kingdom...

Why?

Hugs...

I believe that God is not what everyone else thinks, I don't believe God is he nor she but an entity that we do not need to please, God is a white rabbit in the snow, God is place, a time of reflection, to invite God into your heart, you are asking yourself to be a kind and gentle soul, God is not he nor she but a star in the night sky, a rhyme of love and life, a gift for those who accept.

Hello Gerard...

​​​​​​God is everything everywhere...

God is in Rocks and Trees...

God is in Frogs and Fish...

God is in everything...

Some people experience things when others don't...

God shows up to people who want to know in ways they will recognize and when you want to know God then it becomes a search...

Some people have experienced the wrath of God and some haven't yet...

Some people are on a Journey with God and they talk to God and God responds, maybe we don't see the answer right away and chances are it's our fault...

We're either too busy, maybe we made up our mind already, maybe it's fear we may see, maybe we're too focused on our feelings and emotions...

Some people know and receive many blessings, many write them down in a notebook or something...

I see people all the time not do the right thing and I wait...

I don't say anything because that's between them and God and they're not little children that haven't learned all the basics yet...

I see so many things that could and would've been a blessing and I've seen it taken away fast...

Matter of fact it happened to my Neighbors lots of times just in the past few weeks and they still don't see or get it...

​​​​​​Unfortunately, no one can say anything to them because, they're quick tempered and think they know everything...

Thank you very very much for your kind comment and support!

Best wishes and blessings!

Hugs...

HI sis Sparrowsong.  We are all born sinners by nature but thank God that he recognized this and sent Jesus to die for our sins....God knows our hearts, as He is a part of everything He has created as energy and love.  I think it is hard to recognize ourselves when we are going down the wrong path sometimes. It is easier to recognize it in others.  I believe the best thing we can do is to refer back often to what  God's will is in His words and try to  follow His example through Christ.  We will never be perfect until the resurrection and given sinless strong bodies, but we can show God we love and trust Him over our own instincts to sin.  It is such an individual journey for each person to learn who God is and allow it to change their heart.  It is a molding process that is not complete until we die or Christ returns...  Christians are getting such a bad rep these days because of people not acting in a way that looks different from the world...and that is a shame. Very poweful message to make us think.  xo Love n Hugs

Hi Sparrowsong

Nobody is ever going to be perfect, but as long as you are trying to good on this earth, when your time comes, you will be judged on this!
