Faith, Friends and Family are the keys to a happy and fulfilling life. Christ taught us of forgiveness, tolerance, compassion and of true faith. Friends and family are the both the glue that keeps us together and the support system that keeps us from falling overboard. Faith is the fuel as well as the foundation for our walk through life, without faith there is no hope and no salvation for us. To believe the promises as well as in his mercy is what we must do as we face the wickedness and immoral desires of our flesh. We should embrace the spirit of hope, compassion and love that god had put within us and shrug off the spirit of fear the world forces upon us daily. We also should stand strong against the daily distractions the world throws at us for they keep us from the things God wants us to do as well as experience.
We are not to judge and if we must judge do it by scripture but with mercy for we shall be judged in the same we judge others. We should love one another and overlook the shortcomings in others for we too are plagued with sin and faults. It is very common for us to dislike faults in others that we harbor within ourselves. This is why we should be merciful in our judgments when we choose to judge others. Love the sinner but rebuke the sin and forgive the trespass. We can not allow our pride or arrogance stand in the way of our love and compassion. No man or woman is greater or lesser than another, some may live a more fortunate life but this does not make them greater. God gives all his children blessings if they recognize them or not and each of us are given an equal share in God’s grace.
Far as those who either do not believe in God or those who chose a different religion we should not forsake them for God gave each person the right to choose their own path. We should love them as siblings and pray for their souls. We should not hate someone of other faiths for they too are one of God’s children and we should love one another. We can not and should not try to force our beliefs on others for several reasons. Mainly because a forced belief is not a true belief and the fact salvation comes from freely accepting Christ not by being forced. We should respect each others right to follow and believe in the way we choose. Too many mistakes have been made by religious zealots in the history of man when it comes to religion.
Though I know my ideas and beliefs could be wrong just as easily they could be right. I do not claim to be an expert nor that all I believe is the only answer or even the right one. But They are here for you to read as well as to ignore. May god bless you and thank you for reading.
