Some have thoughts of bringing Christianity down simply because they believe they have been casualties of oppression from Christianity perpetrated by people who are everything but the epitome of a Christian. For some, it is easy to put the blame on God, Christianity, and Christians. It is easy to point fingers at someone else but it is hard to root out the very evil of unforgiveness that reside in our own hearts that fuel the vendetta and all the hatred. How can one demand fair treatment when they themselves refuse to grant it? Our society has encouraged and bred voicing out grievances on a one way street towards anything Christian which only substantiates Luke 21:17, “Everyone will hate you because of me.” As much as people dislike hearing about end times, this hostility towards Christianity is an indicator.
The society we live in is bent on asserting the importance of identity that “higher” unlearning has even created new pronouns specific for other gender identities besides the 2 dominant sexes since time began, the sanctity of the lives of certain racial and ethnic identities, the importance of keeping oneself from being a victim of identity theft and on and on but it is mindboggling to me how some can completely disregard God’s own revelation of His gender identity and bend His ultimate and definite claim to conform to the confusion of the times. How lofty it is for one to theorize God is anything but what He claims to be. It may make for a seemingly interesting conversation piece but in someone’s quest for inclusion, it dismisses the definite claim of the Alpha and the Omega.
If the surrounding is mostly dark, one could temporarily have blinders on and it does not matter if one’s eyes are open. You will see nothing but absolute blackness. This happens to be the reality for an unbeliever.
Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.”
It is a very serious thing to hold to someone’s relative and damning “truth” that is anything but THE truth. It is damning because it only leads to a web of lies and confusion.
“And if the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit.”
While people have every right and need to release what is in their heart, I appeal to the Christian to discern the spirit and motive of what they are taking in. Victims cry and some victims have a vendetta towards God for allowing evil. If God were not merciful, none of us deserve to live since apart from Him, we are capable of everything that is evil. I can play a victim if I choose to but I refuse to- having been a victim of pedophilia, but that does not define who I am. My identity is in Christ.
There are people in WordPress who claim to be Christians and are intent to persuade people to ultimately leave Christ. The whole of Christendom itself has been a victim of being taken over by the sins of pretenders who ruin genuine Christianity.
