My Religion in my Daily Life
11 months ago · · Stress, · Explicit
I don't really know how to explain my religion. I'm a christian, but not one of those bigoted ultra conservative "christians" you're used to hearing about. I'm one of those christians that has gay friends and will go to pride with them. And maybe gay really is against the bible, but that doesn't mean I'm the one doing it. I mean "love thy neighbor" right? It is literally against the bible to "hate" gays. And I think it is possible for someone to be gay and still be christian. I mean, I've heard of people who were sexually attracted to the same sex and they would go to church and "pray the gay away" but does it work? No, I personally have never heard of it working. So, it's not fair that this person was created and became gay unintentionally, then when trying to "pray it away," it didn't work. God LOVES gays. God loves everybody, right or wrong. In the end, only God can make the judgement, you cannot. I'm one of those christians that will go to the women's march because I do believe that women too deserve to be recognized and have equal rights. I don't know if it's against the bible that women are not allowed to be equal to men. Maybe I need to read the bible more carefully. However, it would not be fair if that was true; that men be more powerful and be in control of women. Because so far the world has only had men in charge, and it's not going very well. I'm one of those christians that doesn't base my political views off of my religion. Keep religion separated from politics, it's what God wants. I mean, why would he encourage politics? It keeps us more separated. It's evil. I'm one of those christians that believes you cannot call yourself christian and still be a white supremacist and racist and bigoted. I hear a lot of christians (mostly catholics, actually) claim they have love for God yet they are still so full of hate and I just refuse to believe you are a christian when you claim to think your race is superior to others, or when you think your life is more important than another's who is in need. If you have the nerve to condemn someone to hell, you are not a christian. If you don't want to love or be friends with someone because of their sexuality or race or preferences, something that has NOTHING to do with you and affects your life in NO WAY, you are not a christian. Shoot, even if you feel like they are your enemy, you're supposed to love them too. I have gay friends, bi friends, trans friends, muslim friends, friends of different races and ethnicities, and I love each and every one of them. I will not judge them over something I cannot change, something that has no affect on me. I will judge them based on their kindness, heart, and spirit. I love all of them, and I believe they are in my life for a reason. The rest is left up to God.
