Carry Your Cross

Carry Your Cross

Everyone has a cross to bear--but you don't have to carry it alone.

Do you ever feel like God is trying to tell you something? I feel like that a lot, and although sometimes I might be overthinking, I think that there are certain times where God is trying to get a message or a point across in my life.

I went to church twice in the past two weeks. Once was on a Wednesday, at a church that I hadn't gone to in a couple of years. The other time was a week before that, on a Sunday, at a church downtown. They both had different priests, both had different gospels, but one thing was the same. Both priests had the same message and talked to us about the same thing--carrying our crosses.

But what does that mean?

We all know the story--Jesus carried his cross before he was crucified. He was tired, it was hot, and it was probably heavier than anything I could ever lift, especially on my own.

But what does it mean to carry your own cross?

I had never thought about this before--looking at my burdens and my struggles as a cross that I had to carry. There are so many things I worry about every day: money, friends, my social life, academics, getting enough sleep, eating right, and so on. I never really thought of all of these struggles and minor inconveniences in life as a cross that I had to carry.

And it is deeper than that, I've realized. We all struggle to identify ourselves, to figure out who were are, why we were put on Earth, and what we were sent to do. I know I personally struggle with that a lot (again, I overthink). However, seeing all of my burdens, issues, insecurities, and daily inconveniences I deal with as a cross I have to carry, it somehow made that weight on my shoulder a little lighter.

Jesus died for me, and you, and everyone--and that cross had more weight (physically and symbolically) than anything I ever will have to deal with in my life, and He did that for us. Although I have a test on Thursday I know will be difficult, and I don't exactly know what I will be doing in the next five years, I know that I can get through it and pull the weight of my cross like He did for us.

I also realized that sometimes my cross isn't the only one I am burdened with. I have carried other's crosses for some time. At times, this wasn't the right thing to do, and at others, I know I was meant to carry someone's cross as they got back on their own feet. I know at times some people help me with mine, and there are points where I was selfish and didn't carry as much weight as I knew I could handle at the time.

We all have a cross to bear, and we all have things to overcome in life. To my friends, my family, and everyone else who may be reading this--you aren't alone, and thank you for helping me carry my cross.

The War Against Christianity

The hidden agenda

The progressive agenda does not just threaten society as a whole, it threatens the entire Christian community. In the United States, there is a war between ideals everyday. Strong conservatives and strong Christians need to stick together and stand up to the left, stand up for their morals

A big problem with Christianity today, is how many Christians seem to willingly allow the progressive agenda to, in a way, hijack Christianity. Since the progressive agenda is the “norm” in the media, Christians and Christian organizations are easily deceived. Many of these Christian organizations or Christian leaders adopt this hidden, leftist agenda and push it onto others like it’s the word of the Lord, but it’s not. When impressionable or young Christians hear the messages, they tend to believe it without thinking it over on their own. The “sheep-le” mentality is not only effecting young millennial, but is is effects today’s Christians.

In order to attract more people into the church, Christian organizations and leaders distort the Bible and water it down so more people are willing to follow it. The church has to water down God’s word so followers won’t get offended and will continue to come. Christians cannot just pick and choose what they want to follow. Hardly any churches speak out against controversial topics like abortion or transgender issues. Without churches taking a stance and ministering on these issues, Christians will continue to be divided and will be sucked into the progressive mindset. While churches are too afraid to take a stance, the church members are vulnerable to the left’s traps. Many people and Christians believe that as times change politics should change, but God’s word doesn’t change. More Christians and Christian leaders need to stand behind God’s word instead of allowing progressives and the media to crumple it and change their perspective.

When Christian leaders and other Christians are taking liberal stances, it feels wrong to disagree with them. It is important to learn the progressive’s agenda and tactics so it can be resisted. Conservatives and Christians need to stay true to their values. If more Christians stay true to their values, the progressive agenda will not lose.
