Thoughts on God

So yesterday my cousin and I went to go see Wanted Movie¬†(Which by the way you should go see if you can tolerate the sex and excessive derogatory language and enjoy action packed film) and on the way home we got into an argument (not heated just an I’m right you’re wrong kinda thing) over whose song Apologize was… I have to say we both were right in our own respects… (more…)

So often christians debate on whether we are to live in prosperity or not… they often quote the¬†parable of the rich young ruler where Jesus told him to sell all his possessions, give to the poor and follow HIm. Or the passage where Levi sells all his possessions and repays what he’s taken from people 10 times over… Or they assert that Jesus and His disciples were homeless because they wandered around Jewish and Gentile territory for about 3 years… Well here is my opinion (backed up by scripture of course…)

First I’d like to define prosperity because I’m all about definitions and such… Prosperity is a state of material or spiritual bountifulness


Why is it so easy to follow the things of God when its someting we want to do or seems easy enough that we don’t mind? But when its something that’s hard we question if it was really God who told us to do it?

I think we need a reality check because Jesus makes it clear in Matthew… “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” (7:21)
He also proved that God’s Will isn’t always easy in Luke, but that we need His help to get it done… “And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then and angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. The His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” (22:41-44)
Can you imagine agonizing about a task you have to complete so much that you’re sweating blood? But Jesus was praying and God sent Him help.


So yeah… it wasn’t my idea to switch… I converted so that Angela would be happy LOL… sike I am my own person most of the time… but who are you following? We are all raised up to be leaders but even leaders have to follow someone… I mean Jesus follow God… the disciples followed Jesus… their disciples followed them… and so on and so forth to it gets to the point where we could say they all were following each other following God… or I at least would hope so… BUT there was a point were Jesus had to leave and the disciples had to keep following…. and the disciples left and those who were following them had to keep following… so know who you’re following… because following the wrong one can lead you down the wrong path…
