Can't Break Me

Sun, Mar 31, 2013 at 2:57 PM By: Elf3

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. He said it would. I have been questioned, spat at, made fun of, and condemned for my belief in Jesus Christ; whom I DO believe died on the cross to save us from our sins. I have an account on a website that is made for posting about things that upset you or things that you've been thinking about. Well, I'll be honest. It's a site for people with serious depression that consider suicide or have attempted it and survived.
I made a post last night that was not being judgmental, hateful, or condemning to anyone else and their beliefs. All I mentioned was that I have been far from God lately, and that I need Jesus. Two people commented on the post with, "Let me ask you this: why does God let bad things happen to us if he loves us so much?", and "Yea, he sent his ONLY son to die. That's nice."
It made me a little upset to hear such, but I replied nicely, and even thanking the two for reading and commenting. These types of events make me feel stronger in my faith, and there's no way in Hell these types of people are going to change my mind or influence me.

    Thank you so much for that, Jubes. I enjoyed reading that, and you are right. To add to what you said, it's not Him that strays from us. It's us that strays from Him.

    It is unfortunate that people who hate on Christianity always bring up the "If god is so loving, why does God let bad things happen?" argument. We live for god, he does not live for us. He gave us free will to live life, go through its trials, and prove our faith.

    And on the topic of Jesus's death, too many non-Christians, and many Christians themselves focus on how Jesus died rather than what he taught. If a person believes in his existence or not, Jesus is a role model for how life should be lived. Simplicity, Love and Humbleness.

    "As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. .......Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father"

    No problem Elf. I've noticed that Eva likes to push people's buttons on this site.
    You should not appologize to her for being yourself, though. You is what you is and she is what she is.
    It's her problem that she is bothered. KoRn is an all accepting band and it has an all accepting Community, and it aint your fault that people can't handle that. I would NEVER appologize to someone who gets bent out of shape for saying what my heart is telling me to say, even if they get offended.
    But I do think that Eva has a right to express what she is feeling, too.
    Never give up, never surrender.

    Do we have to get all religious here?

    That is great! Stick up for your beliefs. I am not a Christian but I would never come and trash talk someone who is. Christian values and morals are great when people actually follow them, and I believe in good morals and values, and treating others with the respect that you want in return. That's good stuff.
