Anonymous asked: help me please!! some guy is telling me that I should I lose my virginity bc there's nothing wrong with it and I'm missing out on pleasure. when I tell him I don't want to bc of religion he starts saying that God will forgive me and I should just live a little. also that I wouldn't regret it if I did it with someone special. I need help defending myself, ideas?!?!
That kid doesn’t know what he’s talking about. From the little that you’ve told me about him, I see that:
- He really doesn’t care about God or his relationship with Jesus. He also lets himself be used by the enemy.
- He doesn’t care about you or other people.
- And finally, He definitely does not care about himself nor does He truly value his life/salvation.
“Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” John 14:21
“Stay on the path that the LORD your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy.” Deuteronomy 5:33
“And to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:27
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7-8
“Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan! You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.” Matthew 16:33
You are the church. The church isn’t building, it’s you. And God is coming back to look for a church that stands in purity. You need to put your armor on, cover yourself with the blood of Christ Jesus and pray for a liberation for those who are used by the enemy.
In the end, this guy that’s talking to you.. he can’t save you. Only Jesus can.
So, who are you going to listen to?
Anonymous asked: I'm a christian and lately I've been struggling a lot with worrying what other people think of me. I've always struggled with this but now that I'm a sophomore in high school I'm tempted with drugs and alcohol and sex. I feel like everyone is doing it and that people judge me for not doing it. I feel pathetic sometimes and like a goody two shoes. I know I shouldn't care but I feel so stuck between my faith and the world I live in. People make it seem like if I did these things it wouldn't hurt
Nothing good come out of those things. Those things are the very things countless people are bound to and are desperately wanting to be free from.
Yeah, if you truly follow Christ people will judge you. The same things about you that some scoff will be the same things that bring others hope and set people free. You have a choice in this life: 1: follow everyone else and lead other followers down the same path, or 2: Follow Jesus, experience freedom, and lead others to that freedom.
Don’t worry that people are judging you, worry that people aren’t judging you because they don’t see Christ in you.
