Christianity Like Bodybuilding

When a person desires to become a bodybuilder there must be a total life change that takes place. The first thing that needs to be done is the acquiring of knowledge on how to become a bodybuilder. There is research and study. There are teachers in the form of personal trainers to assist in perfecting your physique. There is the daily diet and physical training.

A bodybuilder has bodybuilding on the mind continually. They must think of what foods to eat and when to eat them. The diet is the most crucial and difficult part of bodybuilding. Most eat five times a day and go to the gym maybe twice a day and four times a week. There is a huge commitment invested for a corruptible trophy.

When a person desires to become a Christian there must be a total life change that takes place. The first thing that needs to be done is the acquiring of knowledge on how to become a Christian. There is research and study. There are teachers in the form of pastors to assist in perfecting your spiritual walk in Christ. There is the daily diet and physical training.

A Christian has the Lord Jesus on their mind continually. They must read the Bible (eat) daily and pray (physical training). The diet is the most crucial and difficult part of Christianity. A Christian walking in a high level of discernment has spent a great deal reading Scripture. Daily prayer is necessary for daily power. There is a huge commitment invested for an eternal trophy.

The person who continues to study God’s perfect teachings that make people free and who remains committed to them will be blessed (James 1:25).

Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you (Mark 11:23-24).

As Christian Rapper, Lecrae Looks To Transcend Genre

lecrae

Lecrae is dubbed a Christian rapper, but he considers himself a rapper who happens to be Christian.

The Grammy-winning artist (his album “Gravity” won for best gospel album last year) is trying to avoid being boxed into one genre.

“I didn’t really fit in either world,” said Lecrae, 34, who’s been endorsed by both Kirk Franklin and Busta Rhymes. “But it’s telling to the gospel industry that there are people who crave a sound that is not traditional. To the mainstream industry, there’s a voice of faith from all walks of life.”

Last month, his seventh album, “Anomaly,” became the first title to top Billboard’s Top 200 and Gospel Albums charts in the same week. He believes this success could help bring him closer to being embraced by both gospel and mainstream music.

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God.

As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate,

                                                                                                                         says the Lord.

Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.

They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us (1 John 2:19).

Little children, keep yourselves from idols (1 John 4:21).

Also, the sign of anomoly is the all seeing eye:

FRUSTRATED TO TEARS – APATHY

tears

I am determined to move beyond myself and extend my care for others. I will not allow an apathetic disposition to uproot the plan of God. I will extend love as far as I can and depend upon my God to hold me up. I will not trust in man nor be dismayed by apathetic so-called Christians who do not take the word of God seriously.

I will not fear when God clearly has spoken upon the pages of his book that he brings with his Spirit POWER.  POWER to defeat fear and give me a sound mind. My mind has become filled with God’s wisdom and I choose to lose my mind and receive his. I suggest we daily do this. The world is growing darker. We must arm ourselves with the same mind of Jesus and prepare to suffer.

Suffer for loving the world while it rejects us. Suffer while we extend love and receive hate. Suffer for the cause of Christ. You can suffer and have joy at the same time. Have you ever hurt over a lost loved one that was heaven bound?

I thank God I was once blind, but now praise the name of Jesus, I see.

Did God Say That?

daddario

This is a public service announcement to those who would call themselves Christians, that when you speak to someone, you would consider whether God has given you permission to say what is exiting your mouth.

 A believer must understand that there is power in the tongue. It may be used to edify or destroy. It may be used to seduce or restore. It may be filled with deadly poison or sweet like honey.

How does one feel after speaking with you? Edified or torn down? Now rebuke for the moment is not pleasant, but to the ears of the wise its edification. I recall many years ago, I was spending time with a gentleman who called himself a Christian, but had no visible evidence and all I would do with this person is play video games.

I had recently come to Christ and God had stripped me from every other friend, but this guy or so I thought. Every time I would go into his dormitory room my heart would almost literally beat outside of my chest. I remember telling God that I was lonely. He did not care. He wanted me to stop hanging out with this guy.

I withstood my first position and continued. My heart would beat as if I was running, while I was in his room playing video games. It was not until I was in a prayer circle with a group of guys from church, that one guy stopped the prayer and told me exactly what I had been doing and that if I did not stop, I would be very displeased with what God is going to do next. I cried and repented. Never again did I speak or play video games with that guy. He would come to the room and I would not answer. I would see him in the stairwell and I would literally run back into my room. Scriptural reference/wisdom for those not familiar with the Bible is 1 Corinthians 5:11.

My walk with Jesus accelerated like you would not believe. I would enter rooms and people would say God has just entered the room. It was powerful. Disobedience hinders a Christian’s power like you would not believe. Godly words mixed with obedience is powerful.

The next time you speak to someone, understand they have been seasoned with lies already. They don’t need anymore. If negativity is going to exit your mouth or something of the appearance of negativity it better be from God or else let your words be placed on you and with the same measure that you use, may it be measured to you again.

All liars shall have their part in the lake, which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death (Revelation 21:8).

The White Christian Male is Under Attack

Could this be the reason why?

Is Suicide an Unforgivable Sin?

suicide, death, warning

I read an article titled “Is Suicide an Unforgivable Sin?” that I believe is misleading and untrue. Although, I used the same title, as the article, I believe the better question is “Can I be a Christian and kill myself?”

The problem with being a Christian and killing yourself presupposes that God has given you a challenge that you were unable to handle and of course this is against Scripture. “There hath no temptation taken hold of you but such as is common to man. But God is faithful; He will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which ye are able to bear, but with the temptation will also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). Many men of God in the Scriptures desired death and yet God gave them ways to bear it. Elijah, Moses, and Jonah to name a few. Are they better than any believer in Jesus?

The Bible also declares that whoever destroys the temple of God will receive destruction from God.  “If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are” (1 Corinthians 3:17).

The Bible also declares that those who endure to the end. Suicide is not enduring to the end, would be saved. “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:22).

Christians have power with God. It does not mean we never sin again after being born again, but it does mean old things pass away and all things become new. Sadly, television programming like TBN and other popular Christian media outlets jump at the opportunity to make being a Christian cool, by promoting some washed up celebrity who claims to be a Christian. Their lifestyle has not changed and nothing is new, but the words coming out of their mouth.  You shall know them by the fruit they bear. Christian’s house the Son of God within them. God’s spirit lives inside them.

The article used Samson as a demonstrator of committing suicide, but Samson’s prayer makes this null and void. He asked God to take his life. God took it. Not Samson. Those pillars would not have been able to kill Samson with a strength anointing on him otherwise.

So in conclusion, I find it impossible to believe a Christian would commit suicide. It would be God’s failure to sustain and we all know with God all things are possible and we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Why do Christian women perpetuate myths about attraction?

marriage,

My husband and I attend a large Protestant church of the superfunrockband denomination. On Wednesday evenings, our church holds small group Bible studies, and HHG and I attend the one for married couples.  We meet in a large room and split into small groups, each group with its own table and leader.

This past week was rough because the topic was sex.  I just could not believe that all the things we joke about Christians saying were actually said.  For example, one young woman actually used the women-are-like-a-crockpot crock of crap.  This is not true, in case anyone has not figured it out yet.  It does not take a woman, Christian or otherwise, eight hours to become sexually aroused.  The idea that a man needs to spend eight hours giving her tender kisses, helping with the laundry, telling her how much he loves her, and bringing her flowers just to turn her on is wrong.  She may like all those things very much, they may be nice things to do, but they will not make her sexually aroused.  Why do Christian women keep telling men this?  It’s like we’ve all succumbed to mass delusion.

Unbelievably, another woman told the group how hot it is when her husband does the dishes and plays with the kids.  She actually said that as a serious comment, and all the other ladies laughed and nodded. HHG immediately texted me under the table, wishing to know why, if women find men doing dishes to be so irresistibly arousing, he has never received a bl*w j*b while up to his elbows in soap suds.  I could no longer stand it, so I whipped out my iPad and looked up a recent study, refuting her blue pill bull pucky by reading aloud the following quote:

A February paper in the American Sociological Review reported that married couples in which men take on a greater share of the dishes, laundry and other traditionally female chores had sex less often than average, which in this study  was about five times a month. Yet couples in which men confined themselves largely to traditionally male chores such as yard work enjoyed sex more frequently than average.

‘Duck Dynasty’ Dad Suspended from Show

duck dynasty, cnn, James Hibberd‎, bigotry

Apparently, during an interview the Dad called homosexuality a sin. Amazing how this man has more boldness than the celebrity Pastor Joel Osteen. Anyway, should he require boldness under our Constitution of freedom of speech? He should be allowed to say whatever he desired and not be judged by it. As you know this judgment thing only goes one way.

Stories like these are becoming commonplace and the reader of the Bible should not be surprised. God will not return until it is like the days of Noah. What was happening during the days of Noah? People were murderers of fathers and mothers, sensual, following their lusts and hateful. That is what is taking place in the world in which we live.

People are shooting people for winning employee of the month at Walmart and children are going into schools to shoot and kill people.  Why? The world totes brain damage. I tote a lack of love. Listen to the mother who divorces her husband, because she is unhappy and her children suffer. They grow up and have it progressively worse in their relationships as they are disillusioned about life.

The absence of love is the absence of caring and the absence of caring is the absence of value and the absence of value is death. We kill roaches, ants, and flys all the time with ease. We don’t think about their pain. Why? Because they have no value to us.

When we do not value this man’s opinion, it is because we do not value him. Hence, suspend this man for his opinion and put this family in financial jeopardy. How many more stories at lower levels happen like this?

Do you ever find it funny that Christians don’t go around hurting homosexuals? We call it sin and that is simply where it ends. We get the blood off our hands, so when you meet Jesus, you have no excuse. Notice, how the sinner squirms when the truth hits the mind. Do you know why? You are still created in God’s image and this is why the truth is offensive to the degree you must hate this family and suspend his employment.

DON’T JUDGE ME

don't judge me, impostors, navy yard shooting suspect,

I am sure by now you have heard the term “Don’t Judge Me.” A term often used as a defense mechanism. A last resort message to ward off accusations and feelings of regret, hurt and failure. Because I am guilty and my heart has been exposed, I utter the phrase “Don’t Judge Me.” My wrong has caused my heart to break and without an adequate defense, I utter, “Don’t Judge Me.” The proverbial shield of protection but does it work?

When an individual uses the term, they neglect the problem and no solution for change is found. The psalmist writes “My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise (Psalm 51:17). When the judgment is correct, rather then harden yourself to it, use it rather to change. When a brother or sister in Christ judges my actions to be hypocritical and they are, I may be tempted to say “Don’t Judge Me” and continue being hypocritical or I could accept the judgment allow the pain to sink in and change for the better.

God cannot use individuals (for the individuals good) who are unwilling to be hurt with truth. Most of the time when people say, “Don’t Judge Me” they are wrong. The church is not required by God to judge those outside of the church, only those within it. This is how the church remains a shelter for the sick and a blessing to those who enter it.

The world is supposed to be disgusting. It should not be strange that a man desires to enter another man or a woman allows a dog to enter her. Women exposing themselves online with children and men running after little boys. This is natural behavior from an unregenerate man and such were some of us, however judging outside the church belongs to God.

When you decide to take the title I have been given by the Scriptures, my judging will begin. I am a Christian (Acts 11:26) and a minister. It is my desire that we all grow in wisdom and knowledge and understanding of the word of God. Namely, to have a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit who teaches us all things. So if our conduct is less than what the Scriptures demand, I will judge you and I will gladly accept your judgment.

I am not ignorant of the fact that if I judge the same measure will be measured against me and I assure you, that whatever judgment I cast, I am not guilty of the same. The purpose of judging our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ is so that we become better. For those who have jobs understand that the progress report is a judgment of your character and your abilities for the job you are presently engaged in. For those who desire to remain employed accept the judgment of their supervisor and change, or else continue down the same path and get fired.

How much more important is the judgment of the people of God? The people of God are judging so that you may not miss heaven and be counted with the many folks that will say, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:22-23).
