Bad, Homophobic Sweaters: On Demonizing the Salvation Army « In Our Words.

I am a Salvation Army adherent. I believe I am called to serve the poor, hungry, abused, and marginalized. That is why I came to worship and that is why I stay.

I also believe the mainstream Christian churches views on same-sex relationships are outdated and do not follow the most basic Christian rule.

That being love.

I refuse to believe my God does not look in favor at loving, monogamous relationships regardless of sexual orientation.

There is too much pain in this world. Too many homeless, hungry, addicted, enslaved, and lost.  Please know I will do my best to serve you.

How you are. Who you are.

With love and grace in Christ.

I love to tag surf and sometimes I run across a gem. This time I think I have ran across a diamond!

I have to say, this is almost stealing, but I want to add on this young ladies blog.

I think Christ would have said “Hakuna Matata” to the 12 if they had the word back then.

I would have loved to hear him say ” Hakuna Matata” to the grumblers for healing on the Sabbath.

And I think Christ would want us to dance like we do with our kids and grand kids to old Lion King sons.

Have church and dance in worship! ” Hakuna Matata” means ” There are no worries” Praise God for that!

@Selaniest Jeff. You should unfollow me now if that post offends you or you’re taking it personal.

@JesusNeedsNewPR Nope, it’s me calling you out for crapping on other christians.

This is the short story of how I, the mere little @selenist  a person to the point of being ( I believe ) BLOCKED

Ok Some my buddy up there wanted to make a crack about some rather eccentric fellows.  “Goofy little production, ”  I say to myself.  Until I look further… Just a couple clicks and I find this!

Ok so I don’t have over 39,000 followers and probably never will.  And I bet the world will end in May before I ever have a book (  Hey!  There’s a chance! ) But, is this kind of cutesy ridicule how we treat our Christian brothers?  And if you are an author, would you not take that extra 10 seconds to say ” Oh snap!  these guys are spreading the word! ”

Here’s what you get.  Dismissed and ignored.  So I ask you, is this how we should be?  I think not.  As a matter of fact, I think far from it.

And let me say, I want no blog war.  I will surely lose.  But my thoughts.
