11 Reasons To Watch RuPaul's Drag Race

For those of you who don’t watch "RuPaul’s Drag Race," or just aren’t familiar with the show, if I had to describe it in one word: well, I couldn’t. It’s completely outrageous, amazing, dramatic, and hilarious. When I first heard about the show, I didn’t know if I’d be into it, but now, I can’t stop watching. I’ve watched a season and a half in one day, and I regret nothing. The show is nothing that I ever expected it to be. I recommend that everyone watches it, here’s why.

  1. It shows you a completely different lifestyle of men in drag.

2. The illusion and art of the makeup and outfits they create and put together is so breathtaking and surreal. They have so much talent. If they don’t, well, “Sashay Away.”

3. The drama and the judgement is real.

4. RuPaul will give you chills. He is stunning.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F05%2F636060040612059432-1802257415_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=801&h=9ec11712a97c541d4198e60eabf71cda689fcb49e498c58007b84debd007a79f&size=980x&c=948481951 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F05%252F636060040612059432-1802257415_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D801%26h%3D9ec11712a97c541d4198e60eabf71cda689fcb49e498c58007b84debd007a79f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D948481951%22%7D" expand=1]

5. The drag queens pretty much promote acceptance and the LGBTAQ+ community. Something that Ru repeatedly preaches is that drag queens get to pick their family despite hardships they faced throughout their upbringing.

6. RuPaul is the "end-all-be-all" of the entire competition. His decision is always the one that counts of all the judges, and is always the final one.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F05%2F636060044534699260-1333176583_tumblr_m8g6zkCHCc1qgb5p1o1_r1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=836&h=6c8eceacd0392901a94bb3c7097da59dc71392c179ee342cfc05e927a38494e9&size=980x&c=3579963708 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F05%252F636060044534699260-1333176583_tumblr_m8g6zkCHCc1qgb5p1o1_r1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D836%26h%3D6c8eceacd0392901a94bb3c7097da59dc71392c179ee342cfc05e927a38494e9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3579963708%22%7D" expand=1]

7. On that note, just a friendly reminder that the two gifs pictures above are in fact, the same person. It only took me two seasons to realize this. Respect the transformation.

8. The range of different fashion styles and choices are compelling.

9. Their overall excitement from winning mini challenges will give you live and happiness.

10. There is always someone in the group of 14 that has a bad attitude from the start, which ultimately leads to all of the drag queens praying for that person's failure. The drama is amazing.

11. Whenever there's enemies, they always somehow become best friends by the end of the show.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes

I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
