Don't Judge Others When It's Not Your Place

We are all human beings just trying to get through life, so don't judge others for who they are, especially when it is not your place to do so.

Don't Judge Others When It's Not Your Place
Heroes Wiki

"Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are." I read that quote and sat back and really let it sink in. It is absolutely true. We are human beings. We make mistakes, it's what we do. Judging others is something that we all need some serious work on. I was raised as a Christian, but my parents did an amazing job in teaching me that that did not mean it was my place to judge others on who they are as people or what others do. I am not here by any means to knock religion, I am here to redefine what it means to be a Christian. I still consider myself a Christian, I just choose to act more like Jesus would and love everyone for who they are.

With my parent's divorce, I had moved away from the small Christian community I was living in. Word traveled fast and got back to the people there. For people that have a lot to say, not once did they ask how I was doing. When I needed love most, nobody seemed to provide it. That was an incredibly difficult hardship to go through, and especially since I had just moved to a new state, I had no friends to help me through it. That is precisely where I needed a friend but I didn't have one.

Some Christians attack others for being gay and I always have to ask myself "how in the world does it affect them?" How does who someone chooses to love affect their day-to-day life? It baffles my mind. When that whole "Beauty and the Beast" controversy that went on a few months ago happened, I read through articles and articles of Christians being absolutely disgusted on the thought of a "gay scene." Now, I get that people can have their opinions and beliefs, and that is totally fine. What isn't fine is teaching your kids to hate something so pure and wonderful as love. Love is the kindest and most powerful human emotion, so let's keep it that way! So what if a boy loves a boy or a girl loves a girl? I get that it's mentioned as a sin in the Bible, but so is eating shrimp. So stop picking and choosing what you think is wrong and right. As for people who think that being gay is a choice, it isn't. Do you really think that these people go through school and life getting bullied and harassed for fun? No, of course not. It is who they are, and God doesn't make any mistakes.

It seems like unconditional love comes with many conditions. The world would be a much better and love-filled place if we ignored these conditions and loved everyone no matter their sexual orientation, gender, or skin color. Love and kindness over all. I believe that is how Jesus would act if he was walking amongst us physically today. He would love all of his little children.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
