I liked a comment that someone on my Facebook said about God. It was one of those deals where if you comment or like, then you get a message telling you what to post for 7 days. Then you message those people to do the same. It is basically to have positive words of Christianity on Facebook so that it would spread to others.
So, I complied. I will not lie, for a split second I wondered what people will think. I know there are some people on my page who aren’t religious, or who may think it is weird. But why should I worry if this offends them? Aren’t we a nation of offended wimps? Don’t you get sick and tired of someone complaining about a comment upset them, but they can rip into an opposing belief system or viewpoint with the quickness.
Anyway, I challenge you to be bold in your faith. Or in your political stance. Or in your decisions, everyone else be damned. Because so many times, we are worried about losing friends or likes or admiration that we aren’t true to ourselves. I don’t mean to bully people with words or convictions, but instead, be willing to speak up for your principles. If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for…

It’s an interesting balance for sure. If I post something about God that is inviting and encouraging, that’s good. But if I get too preachy and condemning, that will probably turn a lot of people away. Same with thoughts about anything, really, I never want to make people feel they need to be defensive – definitely have to be careful with our words.

Exactly. I get your point. I think i am just saying that so many of us now are concerned about how we look to others that there is so much censoring going on. Too much sometimes.
I don’t believe in god but I respect that everyone has their own opinion. I think it only becomes a problem when debates get unhealthy or one side tries to force their viewpoint down the other side’s throat.
I wouldn’t try to convince someone NOT to believe in god, so why tell me that I’m damned because I don’t? If I don’t believe in damning, then that won’t have much impact on me!
I don’t mind reading posts that reference god (and I will even “like” them), but I wouldn’t follow a solely religious blog because it’s simply not what I’m interested in reading about.
One of my closest friends is religious and we get along just fine. I think, like everything else in life, if you approach the situation with mutual respect and tolerance then you’re ahead of the game.
I totally get where you are coming from. Totally. The whole point of the post was just for people to be comfortable with who they are and not let how anyone else feels about it stop you from no being you.:) Thx for the comment!
