Listen up, you liberal snowflakes. Today is the day I will no longer stand idly by as we slowly but surely eradicate any and all forms of CHRIST from this beloved holiday. Tis the season to be jolly, to be merry, to be spooky, and it’s all because of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Because of Him, I will no longer be saying “Happy Halloween.” I will now be saying “Merry Christmas!”

Enough with all of this totally bogus, politically correct, “I’m too sensitive to hear the Lord’s name through my werewolf ears” bullcrap. Oh, you don’t want to be offended? TOO BAD. I’m going to say what I want, and you can cry all about it right into your Snickers-filled candy bag because I don’t want to wish all those trick-or-treaters a Happy Halloween. I want to wish them a Merry Christmas to remind them of our one true God!

I think the Holy States of America is on its way to Hell in a handbasket. Look at all these children, these Godless children, running around wearing masks and looking like ghouls and goblins and Kardashians and ghosts. It’s insane! It’s macabre! It’s heresy! We need to bring these children back into the Light and the first step is to stop telling everybody “Happy Halloween” just because it’s the “nice thing to do.”

Oh, you celebrate Día de Muertos? Too bad, I celebrate CHRISTMAS. (And don’t you mean “Day of the Dead” anyway?) You celebrate All Souls’ Day? Well I don’t, so Merry Christmas, you heathen! You celebrate All Saint’s Day? Well I guess that’s okay, but then you wouldn’t get mad at me for spreading the love of Christ, now would you?

When one of those demonic children come up to my porch wearing a terrifyingly horrendous costume—something like a sexy nun or a plain red Starbucks holiday cup—I’m not going to give them candy. I’m not going to give anyone candy. Here’s a Bible instead. Read it and you will no longer need sweets to satisfy your blasphemous need to satiate your body with the evil sugar. The Devil created sugar, you know. Lucifer made sugar so that you could eat it and roll around in sloth and envy and forget about Jesus’ sacrifice and mercy and how you’re supposed to be eating His body and blood instead.

Oh, and MERRY CHRISTMAS. No “Happy Halloween” for you. Now get off my porch and go to church.

I urge EVERYONE to follow my example. We simply MUST bring the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit back into this beloved holiday, and the simplest way to do that is to stop being all decent and open-minded and courteous. We need to start saying “Merry Christmas” again. We must put an end to the PC “Happy Halloween” replacement. And I’ll be doing just that this holiday. Will you?

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"

228
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.
