Day 5 of the Best of the Life: True Christians

**Note: IDK why fonts and sizes keep changing! In my blog edits all in purple are supposed to be bold and italicized but it's not all showing up that way....

I should probably also note now that the days are not literal days as I cannot always get on everyday to post, however, each day I have a thought or a topic to discuss in my blog so when I do have time to post I can "catch up" and share my thoughts. :D

So here we go, day "five."

As the song lyrics say: "Rumor has it there's a gavel in my hand / I'm only here to condemn" many people seem to think that is all God does and is all about. horrible an image when God is a God of Love!

“Don’t believe everything you hear just because someone says it is a message from God; test it first to see if it really is!” 1 John 4:1 
Those who believe that God is evil because there is evil in this world and base their beliefs on those who call themselves Christians are sorely mistaken. There are two types of Christians as far as I have encountered. True Christians and "Fake" Christians.

"Fake" Christians by my definition are Christians that say they are Christians but their actions show otherwise. In their hearts, who knows how they feel or believe since only God knows what's truly in their hearts, however, based off their actions they give True Christians a bad image.

"Fake" Christians condemn others, not love others as they should. They are sadly being hypocrites! They say they love Jesus but how can they truly if they are doing the OPPOSITE of what God wanted his children to do?!

With recent events of Gay Marriage becoming legal in the United States, there have been many "Christians" condemning gays, and how is that right? Well, it's NOT! Gays are human too and deserve rights as well as you and I, even if you believe it's a sin. In the Bible, it is a sin, but that is not what this blog post is about; it's about loving others, especially those that you may find it hard to like whether it be gays, your parent(s), step-parents/siblings, your literal neighbor, etc.

What I do not understand is HOW some Christians can sit there and act out like that? Can't they see how hypocritical they are being? 

After all, Jesus, their LORD and Savior, NEVER condemned. Jesus NEVER murdered anyone. Jesus NEVER judged others. 

Jesus spread God's word. Jesus healed the sick. Jesus loved children. Jesus loved all. Jesus lived a perfect life because you cannot! Jesus was persecuted, executed on the cross, died, and then rose again three days later to officially conquer death and the Devil!

How does that translate to condemning others?

The 'Black Eyed Peas' got it right in their song "Where is the love?"And they are NOT a Christian band but this song is what True Christians should be like! 

Also I read that Will.I.Am was raised a Baptist. 

 Even I have a hard time seeing it in this world as of late. Who cares that gays can get married! Why can't you be happy for them for being happy?! Why does everyone look to the Crusades and think that ALL Christians are that way? Just because a select few became extremists, does not mean ALL are that way. 

The same applies to WWII. I am a German and almost EVERY time I tell someone that and the topic of Hitler comes up, they ask me what it's like being German and having your "Germans" murder millions? 

You know what I tell them? I tell them this: Yes I am German, but I didn't murder anyone. Hitler was crazy and was wrong, so please stop comparing me to Hitler. It's offensive.

Hitler believed he was doing the right thing, yet he wasn't! Murder is NEVER right. Many may give me a lot of harsh criticism for this, but I firmly believe abortion is MURDER! 

Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that God knows us before He forms us in the 

womb.Psalm 139:13-16 speaks of God’s active role in our creation

 and formation in the womb.Exodus 21:22-25prescribes the same 

penalty—death—for someone who causes the death of a baby in 

the womb as for someone who commits murder. This clearly 

indicates that God considers a baby in the womb to be as human as 

a full-grown adult. For the Christian, abortion is not a matter of a 

woman’s right to choose. It is a matter of the life or death of a 

human being made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27;9:6).

Tonight on Facebook, my boyfriend saw this image and said this:

"This is such a dumb comparison. Christianity has been around for thousands of years compared to maybe a couple hundred for the other 2. And don't forget about the numerous amount of Christians who have been, and still are being persecuted. Yes many have died under Christianity, but like I said this is not a fair comparison."

After, he received a TON of comments, one person in particular saying:

"That's perfectly fair it just shows that Christians will kill throughout

 the ages because someone stepped up and stopped the other two"

" Christians" all over the country beat members of the lgbt 

community to death daily just because they are gay"

"Christians" kill abortion doctors and patients just because they are

 sinners by their own standards not ever once considering the 

living persons beliefs or emotions"

As a True Christian, that should be offensive! We 

need to stand up and show the World that 
True Christians are NOT that way! 

Just because someone says they are Christian, take a step back and watch them. How do they act? What do they say? DO NOT JUDGE THEM, however you may see that not all Christians act like one.

So to end this topic, DO NOT believe what you hear about God. He is not EVIL! He is GOOD and JUST and, most of all he is LOVE! And as Christians we should be spreading Love!
