Stand Up ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltun92… )
Seriously, think about it.
How come, perfectly normal people,
Cry themselves to sleep at night.
How is that, these beautiful girls, are passing out pictures of their cleavage like candy,
And expect respect?
But on the other hand, how could you call a kid a faggot, and then support those “adorable gays”
Do you all KNOW what you are saying?
There is power behind words.
There are also emotions.
My literature teacher once told me that "every word is critical"
And throwing a “JK” or “just messin’” behind your rude comment as if it would make it any better.
How can we call ourselves a Christian nation when every day we take the Lord’s name in vain like it is nothing..
“Jesus, Mary, and Joseph”
The only reason why we are considered a Christian nation NOW, is because we have
a) More Bibles then Korans on our bedside tables in musty hotels.
b) we live superficial lies. Lies that corrupt what is believed to be Christian.
Look, we live in a different world now. A world of technology long-past fathoming. We live in a world so big, that we feel as small as we really are.
This is our chance, this is our world, our experience. I believe we need to go out and live our lives through Christ, and through the Gospel!
I don’ t know where you been, or what you have been going through, but I believe there is no such thing as rock bottom. I know it is possible that things can get worse, but I know indefinitely that things get better, no matter where or what your cutting room floor is.
We live in this world of diversity, not new diversity, for there has always been difference in the world, (though expression of it has changed), the meaning and root of it has not. We as a youth need to STAND for what we believe in.
We need to “make war with our sin” (-John Piper)
and acknowledge our flaws, not as genetic mutations, but genetic perfections. We were born into sin, and it is OUR job to best avoid any sin, this including: judgment, lying, lust, greed, selfishness, etc.
This, people, is the new era.
The era of Us.
So stand up! Do what you KNOW is right. I am more than sure that anyone reading this can relate, Christian or not!
Are you all you can be?
