Hello all! First, let me thank whoever is reading this for taking the time out of their lives to listen to what I wish to share.
Now. I call myself a Christian…by MY definition, this means I believe in God and believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. My knowledge does not go so far as to where I can quote from The Bible, but I do adore God with all of my heart.
I occasionally curse. I tend to have a dirty mind and will say things not exactly pure of soul. This does not mean I love God any less. I AM NOT A PERFECT CHRISTIAN. As all human beings do, I sin. Jesus died on the cross to forgive us for our sins. This does not mean when I do sin, I think ‘oh well’, all is fine. No way. OF COURSE I apologize to The Lord. But I do sin.
Some friends have asked me in the past how I can call myself a Christian when I lie/lead others on. Yes, I do admit that in the past I have lied to family and friends. And I am so completely ashamed of that. However, I am working on that. As I mentioned in capital letters above, I am not a perfect Christian. Should I even call myself a Christian? Maybe not at this point. But I can tell you all one thing: I am a God-fearing individual who is trying my very best to do what is right in this world. When I say dirty things or curse, it does not change who I am.
And to reiterate what many of my Disney pals have said, you cannot judge a person by how much they curse. That is prejudice and disgusting. My pal Jim Garth made mention in his blog of how Disney is a big part of who he is BUT, and I quote, ‘it does not define who I am.’ THAT RIGHT THERE explains so much. Yes, some of us curse and do not have a completely pure mind. This does not mean we are not true Disney fans. We can NOT let others tell us who we are. NO ONE in this entire world should judge us. That is completely up to God. Being human beings, we of course make judgments about people. That is another thing I am working on with my religion.
So to my friends who wonder how I call myself a Christian…I’m working on my beliefs. Remember something: I’m 21. I’m still figuring out who I truly am. Not to sound cliché, but this is part of the reason I’m taking a solo trip. Self-discovery is a very important thing, especially in today’s society. You need to figure out for yourself who you are and what your values are.
Sidenote: For the love of all that is kind and good in this world, please do not discriminate. Do not hate people who are black, Hispanic, gay, bisexual, etc etc. I repeat…you have no right to judge anyone. Jesus says something in The Bible similar to not judging anyone, as you yourself have many faults.
Thank you all for reading this, my friends. I'm proud of who I am. Yes, I still make many mistakes and am trying to change that bit by bit.
And to DF – yes, I myself have unfollowed you too. I cannot respect someone who discriminates based on cursing. It is immature.
Thank you all for accepting me for who I am.
All the love in the world,
