If You're Telling Me That The Bible Isn't Fact, I Will Say A Prayer For You

If You're Telling Me That The Bible Isn't Fact, I Will Say A Prayer For You

How can you not believe Jesus died on the cross for us?


Okay so this is just a fair warning, but this article is more of a rant than an article itself. However, there is something that I heard just the other day that has left me absolutely shook about liberalism and the left-wing media (I'm not saying all left-leaning people are like this, but these characteristics apply to quite a few of them).

So, the other day I was sitting in an English class of mine called 'Multicultural America.' My professor, a woman about in her late 50s, early 60s begins going over what we will be doing this semester. At first, it is the same old, boring syllabus stuff as 'You can't be absent more than two classes' and what not.

She also went on to say that in this class we will be discussing controversial/political events. She goes on saying that she is very progressive, but she will listen to conservative views. However, the conservatives have to provide credible sources to their arguments (but the progressives don't necessarily have to).

Then she stated one (and implied as the only) source that was not credible: The Bible.

My jaw legit dropped to the floor. For a second, I thought to myself "Did she actually just say that, to a room full of college students?" I know I can't be the only Catholic or Christian for that matter that was in the room. I seriously could not believe my ears. Though it was horrible that she said that, I said a prayer for her moments after.

Still, days later, HOW?! I texted my mom right away, and she was just as shook as I was. The Bible not only talks about the Word of God, but there are historical events too, like Jesus being persecuted, and crucified. I have been to Israel (as most of you probably know by now because I can't shut up talking about it) I have been to the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem, I've been to the Western Wall, the Church of The Holy Sepulcher and many other places I would name off, but you would probably get bored because there are so many.

There is evidence in museums, churches, and so many other places in the world that talk about how the Bible is true. Even in teachings, strange/odd events, and our faith.

Also, at the fact that conservatives have to back it up with fact, but progressives don't?! Yup, that seems fair to me…not.

I hope and pray that this professor comes to her senses and finds God in her life. For now, I will keep praying for her, and the many others that believe that the Bible isn't true.

You go, girl.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds.

Calling People Hateful Is Not A Productive Dialogue

Universities have become a breeding ground for intolerance.


The political climate is rough. I don't enjoy commenting on it because of how controversial it has become. Every once in a while, however, I come across something that rubs me the wrong way.

As I was walking through campus the other day, chalked on the side of a cement wall was a phrase claiming the College Republican club on campus was a hate group. I don't know anything about the person who wrote this statement or anything about the College Republican group on campus, but I do know one thing: this statement is false.

Universities have become a breeding ground for intolerance.

Just because someone has a different opinion from you doesn't mean they are hateful. There is room for disagreement.

A psychology professor of mine once said something that impacted my perspective toward both political parties: "Both sides think they're right, but both sides can't be right." Both sides make decisions based on what they think is right. A person's opinion is not "wrong" if it differs from yours. It's just different.

It's important to recognize that people won't always agree with you, and that's okay. That doesn't give you the right to call them mean or hateful. It allows an entrance into discussion. Besides, if you want to persuade someone that your belief is more accurate, name calling won't get you anywhere. It will only cause the other person to view you as inconsiderate and unwilling to understand.

How can you convince someone to believe you when you won't listen to their perspective? How can you expect people to listen to you when you won't do the same in return? Not only is it important to recognize a person's beliefs, it's important to understand why they believe what they do.

In order for people to engage in productive dialogue, both sides need to listen to each other and respect each other. Tossing labels around progresses nowhere and doesn't benefit anyone.
