I’m writing this to clear up a misconception about me. A few people have pointed out the differences between my blog page, my books, and my post on social media. “You talk about God, but you also say this and that.” For the record, what I am is a flawed Christians. You know what — I don’t like that title. What I am is a flawed human being. Yeah, that sounds better.
I am a follower of the Christian faith. I read the Bible and I follow the instructions in it most of the time. However, I do occasionally succumb to temptation. One of my biggest weaknesses is women. Does that mean I go around and have sex with any woman that will show me attention? Absolutely not. What it does mean that I might occasionally give a woman a compliment or smile at her to let her know that I like her. I used to do a lot worse when I was younger, so old habits die hard. Why am I writing about this? Because this topic shows up in a lot of my writing. In my books, I write about sex, sometimes in lengthy detail. Does that mean I don’t believe in God? No, it means I wrote about sex.
Also, on social media, it will show people what you like and don’t like. They will use that as a way to judge me, but if I see a picture of a beautiful woman, most times I’m going to like the post. I don’t believe it’s a sin to do that. If someone is expressing their opinion in a derogatory manner and I agree with their opinion, more than likely I’m going to like it. Does it mean I will use their language? Probably not. Sometimes, I say negative things on social media too. Is that a reflection of my personality? To a certain degree. Like most people, my emotions get the best of me. It does not mean that I’m a bad person.
With that being said, I do sin. We all do, whether we realize it or not. The Bible acknowledges this. The reason why the New Testament exist is because Jesus recognized this. Now, this post was not meant to convert you to Christianity. I just want people to understand that a sinner can believe in and love God. That’s why I write about it. That’s why it’s in my books. It’s not blasphemy — it’s just my unique way of expressing myself. I’m a human being that make mistakes — I just hope you can accept that.
Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I pray for every bondage and limitation that is keeping you from accomplishing greater things for God to break in Jesus Mighty Name. Fix your eyes on the finish line and look back from there and see what you would like the finish to look like. Blessings to you.
Great post and I totally agree. I discussed this in length with someone recently because my views on RELIGION has changed so much over the past few years. Christianity, to me, is about The Grace of forgiveness and love. Love of God and others. We are all sinners and we should not judge. Period. You do a great job JC of being kind and encouraging others. That’s the important thing.
