I have lurked for quite some time here and only recently become active in threads. In the time that I have lurked I have watched debate after debate
unfold between one side and the other, with both holding stubbornly to there ideals.
I myself am a non-denominational christian, I believe in and try my best to follow the words of christ that is I don't need some stranger dressed in
the manner of liberace telling me how to live my life. I learned how to be a decent person from my family who taught me about God and Christ. I make
no claims at perfection however. I have my own dark proclivities that I'm not exactly proud of, but hey they make me me.
Anyway, on to my point which is if (and I personaly believe it is) biblical prophecy is correct then there is not really much any of us can do to
actually stop what is inevitably coming. Furthermore isn't it a bit arrogant of us to think that we can stop an event that is mandated by God?
Don't get me wrong, it is never a bad thing to attempt to make the world a better place. I just think that (for those that believe anyway) our time
would be better spent tempering our steel, fortifying our resolve and preparing to stand tall in the face of the coming storm. If faced with the
choice of denouncing your beloved savior and having your head severed from your body, you should smile and say swing your axe excutioner.
For the naysayers that would criticize and belittle us believers I will say that unless you seek or stumble upon the lord you will never know the
peace and serenity that comes with faith. I will pray that you all find it. There is a certain fearlessness that comes with it not a sense of
invincibility but rather a contentness in knowing that should you meet the reaper he will simply take you home. A home that is a far better place
than this realm.
We all need to rember to live and let live and stop playing judge as it is not our place. An example would be for homophobes to chill and let people
be who they are as long as it is not directly harming anyone. On the flip side of that specific coin, gay's should chill and stop trying to shove
there lifestyle in peoples faces and accept that some people don't agree with there way of life. As long as no one on either side is being harmed
then relax and break bread together, you might learn something.
Even an atheist would be hard pressed to say that the words of someone they don't believe in were the words of a immoral man. I've said it before,
now is the time to educate, prepare and find time to enjoy life in between.
