For the Love of God... Stop it!



For the Love of God... Stop It!
By Samuel Marcus Brown

Happy New Year & Welcome to 2012! It's a new season and a new day and it's time to get our houses in order as Christians and non-Christians. We need peace for our mind, body and our souls. I'm talking about a sober and divine peace that will allow you to remain peaceful and restful even when everyone around you may give you a pass to worry, fret and to even act out your life in some destructive manner.

I know that over the years and probably most of your life; traditional church folk has gone rogue and have carelessly ridden roughshod over your heart, mind and have even trampled your soul by handing down an ungodly, unjust judgment of taking the word of God completely out of scriptural context to demonize your God given sexuality.
I have dealt with each of those misused scriptures quite handily on this blog site; please spend the time to understand for yourself.

If you are one of those who have ignorantly (I say ignorantly in the most loving way) inflicted that kind of pain to some of God's children in his name; for the LOVE of our God, please stop upholding those man made prejudiced traditions and assigning them as coming directly from the sovereign God (i.e. U.S.A. slave owners with scriptural references professed to be Christians) and re-study God's word within the historical context of when and why it was written; you "miss the mark" when you condemn a people that God nor his son Jesus the Christ has never condemned.

If you are a non-Christian and have become a victim of the traditional Christian church who has rejected the essence of who you are; I implore you to stop and study or re-study the life and love of Jesus the Christ in the New Testament (starting with Matthew) in the King James Version of the bible. "many of the modern versions of the bible has inserted anti-gay verbiage"

 I promise you that the sovereign God who manifested himself as a man through his son Jesus the Christ who walked this earth (this has been documented by theologians and other scholars) over 2,000 years ago does not reject your sexuality (which is not sinful in itself) and he loves and cares about you more than you could ever know.
  John 3:16For God so LOVED the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

When you start to read and understand who Jesus the Christ really was and who and how wonderful he really is and what he he requires of you... you will be amazed of the simplicity of becoming a follower of Jesus Christ. (the word 'Christian' has been muddied up so badly by church folk)

While reading and understanding the bible; you may be overcome with a calm and a peace that surpasses all of the misunderstandings of the venomous anti-gay religious politics of  man made customs and traditions that has been forced upon us for generations.

I'll leave you with these words from when Jesus had just admonished the people in these certain towns; they witnessed many miracles and still did not believe. 
Matthew 11:28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Sam,
 
Your article blew me away! I wish the entire world could read it. I love the way u handle the ignorant ones. People must understand that ignorant isn’t a bad word. They just don’t know any better & it would be wise 2 listen 2 your words so they can become less ignorant! LOL! I actually mean that seriously... I like how U treat even the people with different views with love & respect. You’re just trying 2 teach those that don’t understand & you’re doing a fine job of it. (I still think U need your own church… Eddie Long has “stepped down so he can step up” or whatever he said! LOL!!
 
Keep on sending out these great messages. You’re awesome. I’m not sure what all  it means 2 B anointed, but I think that U R.
 
Much love,
