In recent years, we have focused on The Proud Boys & The Oath Keepers because of their propensity for violence. This organization is preparing thousands of young boys & men to fight to make the United States a Christian nation

That you become a sincere #Christian is to you a matter of the greatest concern. No other interests can compare with the interests of your soul. The question for you to settle is not one of creeds and ceremonies, but one of salvation or damnation. As sure as you are a living soul, the day of wrath will come, and then, if out of Christ, you will be left without refuge.

Pat Robertson is dead

Unfortunately, the mess he left behind is still here.

There is nothing to celebrate, his damage has been done.

For Christianity and for the rights of the millions he demonized and advocated the extinction of, there's a path of destruction left in his wake

I mourn the life and influence he could have used to revive the world, instead wasting it on engendering hate and division at the cost of basic humanity.

I've been thinking about sin and sinners after studying the parable of the two debtors in bible study(Luke 7). The below is my current thoughts. Constructive criticisms from a Christian Theological perspective welcome:
- sin is relational.
- We don't want anyone to be sinners, we want all to be righteous.
- Be humble. Our pride makes us biased regarding our sins and the sins of others.
- One shouldn't look at a sinner with a heart of revenge/grudge.
- repentence, reconciliation, mercy should be the goal. Just punishment for the unrepentant.
- Before repentence comes a realisation of wrong doing (by modes such as: divine revelation, warning of a prophet, self realisation and faith in God)
- It is good to communicate a need to repent but be wise, it depends on context, duration, audience and mission.
- Repentence occours before reconciliation.
- The repentant sinner holds a special place of intamacy with God.
- Sin has negative consequences regardless of reconciliation or punishment.
Biblical reasoning for the above:
Jonah in Ninevah
- Jonah's incorrect view of the sinner. Getting revenge via just punishment by preventing reconciliation/warnings.
- God's view of the sinner. Reconciliation and repentence desired. Warnings given, punishment via Justice as a last recourse.
Daniel in Babylon
- Acts as Gods Prophet and dream interpreter to the King and doesn't call on Babylon to repent in the same was as Jonah. Different context, duration, audience and mission.
Babylonian Exile and Annias & Saphias
- God warns and punishes his own people if sinful.
Parable of the Lost Son.
- Older brother incorrect view of the sinner. Bearing a grudge post reconciliation and ignorant of his own sin.
- Young brother. Sins, repents and comes home. Repentence is part of reconciliation. Although the consequence of the prior actions isn't undone (he's had his half share of the property, he doesn't get another half)
Jesus Annointed by a Sinful Woman
- Pharisee's incorrect view was a repentant sinner shouldn't touch a prophet.
- Jesus's view is a gratitude for forgiven sins and faith grants intimate access to prophet/Jesus/God.
- we have all sinned
The parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
- We often think of ourselves as more than we are and others less than they are.
#sin #Christian #theology
note: if you are a secular person reading this the rough equivelent to sin=toxic and righteous=healthy. Though it misses out on the relational aspect of sin/righteous.

As a #christian, I find it frustrating to see other Christians brushing off the danger of #climatechange because, "Jesus is gonna come back anyways" or, "The Bible said all of this was going to happen".

Yes, these things were predicted but that doesn't mean that it's moral to just watch as people destroy the world we were given and do nothing.

WashPost: The revolt of the #Christian home-schoolers: They were taught that public schools are evil. Then a #Virginia couple defied their families and enrolled their kids.

"Through their influence, a practice with roots in the countercultural left took on a very different character. Among conservative Christians, #homeschooling became a tool for binding children to fundamentalist beliefs they felt were threatened by exposure to other points of view. ... But what should be a moment of triumph for conservative Christian home-schoolers has been undermined by an unmistakable backlash: the desertion and denunciations of the very children they said they were saving."

Text from article: 
Consider that the executive pastor of Cottonwood, Sanford, sponsored a bill in the 2021 legislative session that allows school marshalls to have more ready access to their guns. Or that, in 2022, the church hosted the True Texas Project for a screening of “2000 Mules,” a debunked conspiracy film about the 2020 election. This was just a few months after the Southern Poverty Law Center designated the True Texas Project an anti-government hate group.

If you believe how other people feel about you doesn’t matter, then why is it so problematic when another shares that they feel an unconditional, platonic love towards you?

Why is that a breach of consent but sharing hate never is?

& for context, this is what I’ve been hearing from anti-Christian crowds online.

I’ll even concede that Christian’s do have a consent problem; it’s not because we believe in unconditional, platonic love.

We also take the money we “saved” by fasting and put it into what’s called Fast Offerings - a fund solely for helping the poor that is distributed to church members locally according to their need with extra funds going to a regional then general pool.

#LDS #church #christian


On the first Sunday of each month, Latter-day Saints fast (abstain from food and water) for an approximately 24-hour period, usually beginning after dinner the night before.

We believe that by fasting, we can ask God for certain blessings but also that regular fasting helps make it easier for us to overcome temptation.
