Resentment Towards God

They’re many reasons people resent God. Most of the time it is because of loss. Loss of a loved one, loss of family, loss of a job, whatever other loss you can think of people turn that resentment toward God. Now some people resent Him but still believe in him. Others take their resentment and turn it into their reason to not believe God.

For example, “You took my fill in the blank for that I resent you want nothing to do with you and don’t believe in you.” How could you take someone or something so important from me? You’re supposed to love me. I am here to tell you God does love you. He understands your anger, resentment, ect. No matter why your resentment or anger, bring it to God, don’t run from Him to try to heal run towards Him. He’ll listen to any and all problems you have YES EVEN THE PROBLEMS YOU HAVE WITH HIM. We know  that  Romans 8:28

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

He has a purpose for you. As a father, mother, brother, sister, whatever God has a calling in your life to fulfill, let Him.

If you have or had resentment toward God and never accepted Him through Jesus Christ His Son do it now. God loves you no matter how far away you feel from him He does. There is only 1 sin that is unforgivable. That sin is

Mark 3:28-29

“Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”

What is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit you ask? Stripping it down, it’s rejecting Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Savior of the world.  How is that blaspheming the Holy Spirit? Well the Holy Spirit is the One who convicts our hearts, our inner man, He is sent first to convict you of your need for Jesus Christ and if you reject the Spirit’s convictions ultimately you will die still in your sins and because of that you will NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

John 16:7 7 Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

The Holy Spirit’s role is not limited to convicting you of your need for God. He is our Guide and Helper it’s the Spirit who intercedes for us in according to the will of God.

If I accomplish nothing else in this life, it’s my hope and prayer that maybe, just maybe somebody will come to the saving grace through Jesus Christ because I played even the smallest of roles in doing so. That would forever be my biggest and proudest achievement no matter what else may happen throughout my life.

Race, Politics, and Religion

As I said this blog is mainly a sports blog. Today however I veer from the sports world into the heaviest of topics. Race, Politics, and Religion.

Sadly there is still racism in the world today and here in America it’s still prevalent BUT it has also become a crutch and a way to stir things up that otherwise have no reason to be brought up. See Rob Parker‘s comments on Robert Griffin III.

http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2012/12/14/not-one-us-espn-commentator-slams-rgiii-over-gop-leanings-white-fiancee/

We American’s have a black President and if a white person doesn’t like his politics or just the man himself, it’s labeled as “racism”, this is not true. It’s just a person with different skin and a differing opinion on the leader of our country.

Obviously as a white man I understand the historical meaning behind Obama‘s election. I don’t say I can relate to the 80-year-old black person who is only 2 generations removed from slavery in the United States. I can simply only imagine how monumental seeing a black man become President of the United States of America was. Black people came out in record numbers for both of Obama’s elections. Which is understandable as well. I don’t however understand how people can back this man as our country’s leader. He hasn’t done anything for our economy, or any other thing that the people need. Our National debt has gone up astronomically since he’s been in office. Has zero to do with what color the man is. To me he has failed as our country’s leader.

When he announced he was running for President he was the “cool” guy who liked sports said the NCAA Division 1 needed a football playoff and went on to do what ALL POLITICIANS DO, say what people want to hear.

Politicians are legal modern-day mobsters. It’s sad but it is true. They do what they want no matter how it affects the people or how immoral and wrong it may be. I don’t like politics and have no real interest in them because of the inherit corruption that’s embedded in the very fiber of the political world known as the District of Columbia.

There’s been much said and written about Obama being a Muslim. I’ve never heard him say what faith he is. I do know that his positions and legislation’s are very anti Christian. Our country is still predominantly a Christian nation. Sadly our world has become very anti Christian in all ways. Television is the biggest culprit. You can watch any number of shows and they will use God’s name in vain and that’s not bleeped out but the word “shit’ is.  The popular show ‘Family Guy‘ blatantly mocks Jesus Christ and Christianity a lot.  People say, “I don’t want to hear about your religion.” OK well I don’t care to hear you bring up my religion and bashing it. So no matter what your beliefs are why would you trash mine? If you don’t believe there is a God then why bash people who do believe? It seems like a waste of your time if you don’t believe in anything debating those who do, does what exactly?

I have no shame in my belief in Jesus Christ the Living Son of God. I’d had battles with doubts, failure, lack of faith, everything you name it I have struggled with it. Through it all my faith in Christ has gotten me beyond the battles and struggles. I believe the Bible is the infallible word of God inspired by His Spirit, His disciples and it is our life’s guide-book.

This post is pretty much open and shut about what I believe and these topics that are ever so touchy issues but one’s I felt I needed to address.
