Nursing...

I shouldn't have posted this here, but sadly I have no where else I can really post this except for my Livejournal. But since I want to be as open and candid as I possibly can, I'm posting this here. There are a few bits and pieces of profanity sprinkled about that I won't edit since I wrote this during a time when I was pretty frustrated and angry. Also seeing as how this is my Christian blog, I wanted to post this here to express one of the many struggles I'm dealing with. Anyway, thank you for reading.

God Be Praised!

 photo praisegod_zps9ac60636.jpg
So yesterday I wrote an article about John Fugelsang and his discussion with Bill Donohue, I sent the article to Mr. Fugelsang and was fortunate enough to have a brief exchange with him on twitter. I'm pleased with what happen. Why? Mr. Fugelsang wasn't compelled by my argumentation, he didn't repent (I'm not 100% convinced he read the article entirely) and he basically called me a bigot, why would I be happy about that? Simple answer, God used me to bring judgment. I've prayed for God to use me for His will and He has. He used me to bring judgment. All too often we as Christians preach the gospel and feel a sense of failure when we are rejected or ignored. Jesus had no such attitude and nor did the apostles. The success of The Gospel isn't in our hands, it's in the hands of God, God simply left us the charge to preach His gospel.

I started this blog as a way to reach atheists but that motive changed and now I write these articles mainly for Nominal Christians, the camp where Mr. Fugelsang finds himself, people who claim to be a follower of Jesus but for whatever reason openly ignore His teachings and deny that they're doing so. I provided Mr. Fugelsang answers for his "arguments" that are consistent with Biblical teachings, I used scripture to support my conclusions and left him with no excuse to continue his foolish level of "argumentation". I openly admit that the tone of my article was indeed snide but I NEVER insulted Mr. Fugelsang, I used his own words against him, if that can be considered an insult then I guess I did insult him. I called his argument "rambling" (because it's non-sense). If anything I insulted the people who would find his "argument" compelling, I called those people "short-sighted, shallow thinking people" and by Mr. Fugelsang's remarks and the MANY comments on the video I linked in my article, they're only proving me 100% right.

In conclusion, if he continues (which I am 100% sure he will) even after being corrected, God's wrath will be upon Him, and God's wrath when measured out against unbelievers is also a cause worthy of praise since God is justified in His wrath. I pray Mr. Fugelsang repents before it's too late for him.

All's Fair In Food & Same Sex Marriage


This is an article that should have been written a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time ago, but sadly I've never gotten around to it until today. The reason being, there are already SEVERAL people more capable to handle this...rambling (I refuse to call it an argument) more aptly than I can. Furthermore seeing as how this really isn't an argument it's hardly worth discussing. The unfortunate reality is that there are people (short-sighted, shallow thinking people) who think that not only is this an argument but it's a compelling argument.

So now we come to our old pals Mr. John Fugelsang & The Young Turks, Mr. Fugelsang had a discussion with Bill Donohue of The Catholic League (not the best guy to talk to unfortunately) and The Young Turks commented. I'm of the mind set now where I'd like to challenge Mr. Fugelsang to a debate on scripture since by his own words he claims to be an "admirer of Jesus", any TRUE admirer of Jesus wouldn't have such a foolish perspective on scripture...I mean I expect this from The Young Turks but from you Mr. Fugelsang...from you a self-proclaim "admirer of Jesus" (slight divorce joke at Jesus' expense, blasphemy much?)...I hope you understand you're going to face judgment for that. OF COURSE YOU DON'T...let's get started.

The Plight Of A Black American Christian

This article after my previous article has been a LONG time coming, and because of that I feel like this article is going to be very long, very wordy and very emotion driven, which is unfortunate because I try {keyword being: TRY} to be as objective as I possibly can be when dealing with topics that infuriate me but have a feeling that I won't be able to control my anger and frustration but I will make every attempt to do so as to not make this article a jumbled mess of angry rambling. I will make a note that a lot of this article comes from my own personal experience but nonetheless are troubling signs of larger issues that aren't only applicable to me.

Paganism ?

 photo 121212042025_Pentagram-640-620x348_zpscb5b4e70.jpg

I'm curious about something, what's the point of being a Pagan if non-Pagans receive the same benefits as Pagans. You see, I've always wondered why there were no Pagan missionaries and why Pagans don't share their faith. Christians are told to share their share with non-believers per the orders of The Great Commission and a sense of urgency. Pagans don't have this urgency as there is no heaven, no hell, no supreme judge they must stand before and no exact benefit to being a Pagan. If there were benefits to being a Pagan, wouldn't a Pagan encourage others to be Pagan? I haven't asked Pagan about this issue because whenever I do talk to Pagans I get a very different idea as to what their exact beliefs are. Which leads me to this;

How To Judge A Religion

 photo Islam_zps068d1512.jpg

I haven't watched a single episode of "The West Wing", I'm pretty sure my Mom has a few seasons on DVD but that's immaterial to the discussion of today's post. Unfortunately there is this common idea that every religion is peaceful, and while that works for Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs, it fails when it comes to the big 2, Christianity and Islam. Whenever Muslim Terrorists do something horrible to people The Media is quick to say "Wait a second, not all Muslims are bad, after all you wouldn't say that all Christians are bad because of The KKK now would you?". Which is sound logic, they're 100% right, just because a handful of Muslims blow up a bus or fly a plane into a building it is still NOT a reason to indite an entire religion. HOWEVER, you examine what the religion teaches and you discover that the actions of that handful are consistent with the teachings of said religion...well...then you can indite the entire religion. So in this post I'm going to show you all how to judge a religion, shall we begin?

Why It's Hard To Be Black & Christian in America...

This article I feel has been a LONG time coming and I feel like everything I've been thinking and feeling has led to this. Before I continue I should preamble a lot of things so you can understand where exactly I'm coming from, of course I'll be omitting a few bits and pieces of personal information. I am 25 years old, I will be 26 next month, I am African American, I am male. I grew up in a Fatherless home, I was raised by my Mother and Grandmother, both of which are light-skinned. My Grandmother was so light-skinned that many often mistook her for a White woman.

I am visibly African American as you've seen. My family is unfortunately a statistic, as my family was torn apart by the drug abuse of my father. Unfortunately I met him a few years back and was none too pleased with the reunion. Thankfully he is out of my life. I was raised in Detroit all my life around other African Americans and wasn't fully accepted by my peers due to my voice being a few octaves higher than it should be and the fact that my vocabulary and taste in music didn't sync up with theirs. I have not done drugs, I do not drink, heck, I don't even drink coffee. My mother is a worker at Ford and has been for a long time. We're living a middle class life and getting by day to day. We are also Christians. However recent events in American history have driven a wedge in America that hasn't existed since slavery.
