Christ is the Cure

Life is short, death is sure, sin is the cause, Christ the cure.

"God doesn’t call us to be comfortable."― Francis Chan

If you entrust God with your ‘here,’ He will take you ‘there.’ If you give Him your ‘now,’ He will take care of ‘then.’

You don’t realize Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have. — Tim Keller

Sin tries to convince us that Christ remembers every mistake we make; Grace tells us that Christ remembers every tear we shed.

The reality is that Jesus will wipe away both.

And democratic elites sit comfortably in their homes claiming our border is secure.

Either you come here legally or you will be deported. It’s not racism or bigotry, it’s what’s legal.

Mr. President, when will you address this border crisis?

Most of the major ills of the world have been caused by well-meaning people who ignored the principle of individual freedom, except as applied to themselves, and who were obsessed with fanatical zeal to improve the lot of mankind-in-the-mass through some pet formula of their own.

This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:

The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.

According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.

When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.

So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.

This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.

This is what I’ve been saying

This is a fantastic point, one that needs to be shared everywhere.
One little problem with it in the argument in favor of homosexuality is this: Romans 1-2. Homosexuality is still mentioned as a sin IN THE NEW TESTAMENT AFTER JESUS WENT UP TO HEAVEN. It is mentioned as a sin, just like all the other sins that we commit. The end of Romans 1 lists it among many others. Then Romans 2 goes on to say that we are all just as bad, no matter what sins we’ve committed, because our very nature is sinful. Then, it provides a way for forgiveness, to make us right with God.

Yup yup, you’re right! I was mostly talking about the reblog comment, not the GIF’s.
