Fights and Freedom

Alright, well I just deleted a whole blog because I hated the way that I presented it. I was trying to address something that no one will take to heart anyway. Anger is an amazing thing, its passion moved to the highest climax. It will make you do unthinkable things. Well I am angry at myself, at Christians everywhere. If you are a Christian then live for Christ. If you believe that God HIMSELF, died for you? Then why don't you tell people about it. I mean seriously, if you've accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and you have been gifted salvation for an eternal life, do you realize how big of a deal that is?! How can you not tell people? How can you not try to glorify God for what he has done for you? How can you not at least try to live a life he would approve of? Be passionate about your beliefs, who cares if you look crazy sometimes I mean Jesus went crazy for you? Imagine sacrificing yourself for millions of convicted felons, knowing that they would still make mistakes and they would still turn away from what's right. Would you really do it? Jesus sacrificed himself for the entire mankind! Jesus himself underwent perfect humility. Humility because that's what a man ought to undergo and perfection because he was God. If someone calls you a Jesus Freak or anything along those lines that's a sign, not that you should change for them and be more subtle but a sign that you are doing what God's want you to do. I mean don't go hardcore and tell everyone they are going to Hell if hey don't accept Christ right there and then. But live passionately, Love like we are meant to love, talk like we are meant to talk, dance like we are meant to dance, witness like we are meant to witness. We were made in God's image. God is not cold and distant about His passions, He is radical and awesome and the perfect role model. Don't think that being a Christian means that you can't have fun, it means the farthest thing from that. Being a Christian means that you are living Like Christ, Christ was not Mr. Rogers. Sure he was compassionate and caring, but he was also passionate and angry. He got into so many quarrels with religious leaders back then, he was a rebel. He stood up against the society that cursed and condemned. He found the lost, He touched the untouchable, He loved the unlovable. Honestly, does a guy that goes against almost all the rules sound like Mr. Rogers? Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia is the symbol of Jesus in Narnia and C.S. Lewis described him in a quote that makes perfect sense: "Safe? Course he isn't safe, but he's good" Do you understand that? Fight for whats right, dont stand down and be tolerant when people tell you that you are wrong about your beliefs, dont let people walk all over you, go crazy. You can still be caring without being 'nice' being nice doesn't get a man crucified. Think about that. Being nice doesnt get a man crucified. Try reading all of what Jesus did. Not just what the church focuses on. Jesus was not civilized in anyway, he was a barbarian. But he was Good. Live out the life God gave you. Live like you are meant to live.
