Mindless Boggling

I don't know where I am going with this topic, but here it is.  I am contemplating on my future. Where will I be in five years?  What is going to be real, staying constant?  Also, why am I bothered with so many memories of my former life?

To sum it up, I think I have a premature mid-life crisis.  I don't know why I recall and compare my past to the present.  Strange it is, yet so mind boggling too.  Just thought I'd clue you in on the inner workings of my mind.  I still yearn to be as motivated as I was when I was younger.

If anything has changed it is my motivation, unfortunately.  Well, these are some of my mindless thoughts.

Never Cease for Peace

With all the world going a muck, uncertainty wide spread, I find comfort in knowing that peace is sought first.  We need to seek peaceful means in relating to one another on not just the individual level, but the state and national level.  Peace is what brings security and contentment in relationships.

The relationship that we have with each other impacts us at all levels of existence.  It is necessary or crucial to maintain peace to ensure the safety of everyone involved even in different countries.  We can only hope that America continues to be a champion of peace internationally and not apologize for its attempt to provide it.

While I won't bash every elected democrat politician here, it's not hard to see the current state of things under the Obama administration.  Why do we apologize for our great deeds?  This is a question that has left me stumped.  I don't know the reasoning behind it, but I thought I would disclose my thoughts about it with you.

We must never cease for peace through the spread of democracy and freedom.

Hue-Man Lives Matter

All lives matter, I say.  Repeat, ALL LIVES MATTER.  Why do we put colored walls up around us? What is wrong with this?  I will tell you.  Walls divide us and blind us with colored concepts.

The only way to break these colored concepts or stereotypes is by interacting with one another.  We are all hue-man.  I spell human that way as h-u-e-m-a-n to emphasize that despite our colored skin we are united in humanity.  Let us extend a hand to one another and approach the other race with a welcoming face.

I Crave the Wave

Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin

I'm going to be blunt with you.  All sex outside of a marriage is a sin according to the Christian Church.  This includes both homosexual and heterosexual activity.  I know I am delving into a sensitive and controversial topic, but I don't care.  Yes, I am going there.

Discriminating is hurtful.  I say if individuals want to discriminate against gay activity then they too should single out premarital sex offenders which would be a lot of us.  Generally so to speak, we are all sinners whether homosexual or heterosexual.  It's important to love the sinner, and hate the sin.  

Homosexuals deserve respect and human treatment.  The only place that should be allowed to turn them away is at the Church for gay marriage services.

The church is protected by the First Amendment which guarantees freedom of religion, speech, assembly, and petition.  It states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.  The church has the right to exercise its beliefs that homosexuality is not recognized as a matrimonial union in the eyes of God.  It is a sin to God.  Below is Matthew 1:26-27.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.  Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.  Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. 

The individuals who committed homosexuality were punished and it was viewed as a sinful error during Biblical times.  It is still viewed that way in many churches. 

Churches should not have to violate their own Biblical beliefs to marry gay individuals. There are other churches that will marry them.  Homosexuals can marry in those churches and not push the churches who have a doctrine that strictly tells them not to do so.  Turning away gay couples should be done in a respectful manner.  Again, the Bible calls us to love one another or love the sinner, hate the sin.
