“The problem is not that people don’t have truth—they just don’t value it. It is not that people do not study it, they refuse to wholeheartedly embrace it. They do not want what truly represents the glory and full image of God to be made manifest, so they change the image of God into the image of man. In other words, they fashion a more palatable Jesus and ultimately discernment is lost.”Carter Conlon
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator…Romans 1: 24
This scripture applies to all humans, because we are all guilty of carrying lust in our heart. And lust is many things.
These are my thoughts that I will be sharing on Christianity in America, but specifically in Texas, from identity to surrender. Also, what it is means to me to be a Christian in America/Texas. To everything there is a season and for me. It’s time to speak. Christendom is a mess. I don’t recognize my Christian friends. I have known these people for more than thirty years, and sometimes they are like strangers. We read the same Bible. We pray to the same God. So what gives?
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to gain, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
More later. Thought out in Texas. Be blessed.
