My mother has accused me of being “obsessed” with God, my religion,Church, God’s moral laws,etc. you get the idea. At least I HAVE standards and morals, I stand for something and believe in something, unlike her, who has NO moral standards and thinks “anything goes”, who excuses, condones, tolerates and tries to “justify” sin. She says things like “that’s just what YOU believe!”(actually, it’s not just what *I* believe, but what GOD SAYS; I just happen to follow it!)) or “that’s what they believe”,”YOU can’t tell other people what to do”, “if that’s who they are then it’s ok”, etc. She fails to realize God’s Truth is absolute and He doesn’t have “exceptions”. She sneered “God loves EVERYONE!” which, of course, He does,(and I never said He didn’t) but as a loving parent He also disciplines and punishes and won’t put up with bad behaviour(=sin). It is precisely *because* He loves us we are commanded and obligated to meet His requirements and are accountable and will suffer the consequences if not. It’s NOT a free-for-all, do whatever you want/whatever feels good thing. His standards and laws apply to everybody, whether they choose to see(and obey) them or not.We, as His people, are also obligated to NOT tolerate what He does not, and to avoid sin, those who sin, and to inform them.
As well, I have had a few people try to leave comments on my blog(I have decided to not publish) criticizing me of being judgemental, stuck-up, a moral snob, etc. and all I have to say about that is this is MY blog, about my thoughts, opinions,feelings, perspective; how I see to and relate to what is going on in my life; this is my safe place, my domain, and I will not be insulted or criticized here. I get enough of that out in the world for not fitting in, for being different, opinionated, having morals and standards,being religious, and for standing up for God and not going along with the world. Here is my forum of self-expression, to purge myself , a way of getting things off my chest, and so on. If you don’t like it, then you are free to leave. No one is forcing you to stay here if you don’t like me, my beliefs,what I have to say, my opinions, or what I write. You are free to have your opinions and to disagree, but here I am free to speak my mind, to gripe and complain and to not have to worry about what other people think, so just take it somewhere else.This is my outlet! I will not “censor” myself on my own blog. I recently had a so-called “friend” tell me my “attitude doesn’t help” and I blasted her with a scathing reply that she has NO idea what my life is like and everything I go thru and if SHE had to put up with what I do every day, day in and day out, SHE’D complain,TOO! I am so sick and tired of not being validated,being blamed for how I feel, for being told I shouldn’t, or don’t have the “right” to be upset, depressed, to complain or get mad, etc.I also added sarcastically, “‘Thanks’ for your ‘support!'”My thoughts and feelings ARE valid and if people don’t like it, then they don’t have to read it.I will not apologize for it.
