Hate the Sin, Love the Sinner


In theory this is a great concept. Although it is a little more difficult to follow through on. Often as human beings we forget what it is like to be on the receiving end of a critical glare. Because I believe homosexuality is wrong I try to make a point to see every one the same. I am never going to get the chance to talk to a homosexual if I treat them differently. They will automatically turn me off. I hope that this site is a place where everyone feels welcome. I have a few more sites that deal with homosexuality and are great resources for everyone.

Goals for the Future

I do believe that we as humans will work harder for something if we have a goal in mind. Abstinence is so much more than just a goal it is a lifetime. When you invest so much time and love into one person it makes you want to give them something very special. You want to commit to them for ever. What an amazing thing to hear on one’s wedding night.
"Soul mate, I wanted to give you something. Myself. Whole and complete just for you. I’m not tainted like many of the other people out there. I lived my life in a pure manor so that I could give myself pure and untouched."
Not everybody feels so adamant about this as I may do but it does make you think twice about how you live your life day to day. That is my goal, to make you think. Take a look at these sites, they might also provoke a little thought on the subject.

Are you Pure?

What does it mean to be pure. It is so much more than not having sex until marriage. It is a state of mind. A great site that pushes this concept is…
http://www.chasitycall.org/
Here they show you can lead a pure life and have no shame in how you believe. Perhaps the most compelling part of the site is that they have letters that you can give to your future husband or wife. It personally moved me. I had heard of things like this but actually reading one made a huge difference. I encourage you to go a take a look at one. It really makes you think ahead and not just about the present. It puts an actual person in your mind and gives you someone to stay pure for.

What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving!
I was thinking today of everything I am thankful for and it made me think for the fact that my mother made the choice to have me. If I was a child whose mother had had an abortion I would be a mixture of things. I would be angry, I would be sad for the sibling I had lost and I would be a little nervous. If my mother was willing to kill my older sibling would she be willing to die for me? This is a question that often floats in my head. I would be quick to question her value of me and if after having me she regretted having the abortion. I am awestruck by the women who continue to support abortion after they have had their own children. A bond with one's child is a special thing that only half of the population gets to experience. I hope that my words have provoked you to do some research on the subject of abortion. Some good resources are…

Standing up for What's Right

I feel very fortunate to continue to find sites that match up perfectly with my blog. This site…
http://www.standupgirl.com/
is a very powerful site. It confronts abortion head on. The lay out is perfect for the topic and it doesn’t leave anything hidden. It shows pictures of babies and the stages of abortion. Like the site I wrote about a couple of days ago it has places for you to contact. This subject is very dear to me. It amazes me that so many people are willing to end their child’s life. This is something I can’t even fathom. For being such a selfish country I understand how they feel that each person rights are important but that I feel is a contradiction. If a baby is flesh and blood than you would think we would be a little more possessive and protective. I wish others would be as connected to their children as I know I will be.
Keep on thinking!

Persecution or Misinterpretation?

I recently found a website by author Randy Alcorn that has a lot of information that deals with Tone Deaf. It has articles on sexual purity, abortion and homosexuality. One of the articles was very interesting to me. It was about a lesbian who felt that she being persecuted by Christians. The link is
www.epm.org/articles/gaywitness4.html
What really was impressive about this site is how Mr. Alcorn took such care with his response to the writer. He was in no way offensive or disrespectful to her. He clearly explained to her how sorry he was that she felt that she had been shut out. He showed her love but didn't sugar coat anything. He gave her the facts but didn't just leave her with that. He gave her options of how to deal with her feelings and places that she could contact to talk it out. This is the perfect example of how I want my blog to be. A place where facts and truth are given but with love and compassion. I hope that I am being successful with what I have been doing.

Who's right is it anyway?

The topic of abortion is very close to my heart. It is hard for me to even entertain the opposing sides view. I wanted to make sure that i gave alot of sites to refer to so that the readers could all research for themselves. It was very hard for me to go to the porchoice site so i didn't do alot of searching but this seemed to be the most informative and not just full of opinions.
www.naral.org

A few sites that give the side that i lean towards are

www.centerformoralclarity.net

www.banonabortion.com/index.html

www.afterabortion.org

All of these sites do more than just talk about the mothers right to choose. I appriciate these sites because they go into detail of what abortion really is.
Abortion is murder. There is no way around it. I am not going to go into the facts because that is what the links are for but there is a living being in the womb days after conception. Not only does the child have to pay for the parents poor choices but so does the mother. The after effects of abortion haunt women for years.
a great book on those who deal with post abortion is The Atoinment Child by Francine Rivers. What i really like about it is that you don't only get the mother's emotions buy you also get the doctors emotions. A real tear jerker and it makes you see abortion in a whole new way.
until next time
