"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:1-10 There are going to be a lot of times where someone is going to speak out against Christians. I feel we need not worry so much as to jump in and defend ourselves due to what has be done supposedly in "Jesus' name" and stirred up anger from non. If we truly are in the scriptures and living our lives for Jesus, then we must understand that we cannot speak for everyone nor we can we control anyone. We lead by influence, and if those who have tarnished the name Christian due to going against what scriptures have taught, we need extend grace to them, because we have also done it one way or another; and understand they are learning and growin as we are. NO MATTER WHAT THEY'RE AGE OR EXPERIENCE. Yes the bible does say, turn the other cheek, but it doesnt say let them hit you again; it also doesnt say strike back! I am in no way saying that we are not to defend our faith, I am saying we should not jump into the ring everytime someone speaks out agressively against Christians. For example "Christians are so judgemental/self righteous". Rather we need to defend the cross and promise of Jesus, through our actions, rather than just speech or posts (dont get it twisted, i am saying not just posts or speech). Jesus didn't jump into altercations, he challenge them through action and conduct. Christians fight for Christ, not for their label. I am a Christ -follower, I serve the Lord and I mess up yes, but everyone stumbles...this gives no excuse to stop my pursuit. But it doesnt change who I am in Christ. So i will not finish by saying I am human, I will not limit myself as a man to the term of being "finite." Who knows what we can do CHRIST FOLLOWERS! I don't know bout you, but i aint a fan of labels, so i refute them, i aint a fan of sticky notes that fall off if im not careful, you get me? Who I am and who i serve is stamped on my heart. Maybe I am wrong? Id like to hear what you guys think... cuz in no way will i claim to know it all or have it altogether. Pass this on, lets spark something. ”There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” (Romans 3:10-12) ... BUUUUUT!! That is why we have Romans 3:23
Im beginning to Wunduz what it takes to be notice by a prodution company? I guess Im wondering where exactly else I need to go in order to bee seen? It's interesting that you always will hear of Producers looking up people on Myspace and Facebook and Youtube, but yet you never have them get signed? I have many friends who are amazing artists! Much better than myself who have put themselves out there by more than just those three mediums. Hmmm... are they not doing something, or are they doing what they are supposed to..and its not their fault for not being noticed.
