The Duggar Family

The Duggar Family – I haven’t read all the stories nor watched any videos and I’m not going to. This is what happens when you make your private life public. But just because this happens and what do you expect from reality tv. I think its bull shit.

If 19 and counting were all atheists and we found out about this, it would be hush hush, their getting counseling, its none of our business, etc, etc. But because they are religious, and very religious. Believing that homosexuality is a sin and a man is a man and a woman is a woman. We’re going to rip them a new one. We’re judging them because of what they believe not for what they do. Tell me I’m wrong. I’ve had things done to me when I was kid by other kids, because kids are naturally curious. I don’t need to talk about it, I don’t need counseling. Things happen, it’s not a perfect world, we go on. I want to know how many of you out there had a perfect life, trust me, you’re a rare person.

18 and counting are really suffering because of one person and that’s just wrong, and it’s the public that’s making that happen.
Everyone get off your high horses and stop being so judgmental. There are far worse problems in this world. Much much worse problems we can all be talking about.

All I got to say is, there is nothing to see here, go on. But if you can’t, it’s because we just kick em when their up, kick em when their down.

Last Love is Forever

Stars drowned out by city lights

Spirit taken by the fight

Darkness takes the light

Sweep it out of sight

Light a candle

Make it right

Nails scratch the surface

Grounded is my Father

The wind is my Mother

My sister keeps the door

My brothers cross to bear

But in season will appear

Plant a seed

Watch it grow

What we could not believe

We soon will know

Lips are soft

The heart is hard

The ears don’t hear

and words don’t sound

The earth will shake

The heart will brake

Will you take a look

The fear you shake

A hand you take

Love will you make

What Is Grace

My response to the blog article:  As I did not hear the sermon you had heard, I cannot comment on the sermon. I can only explain my definition.

Grace is a feeling a person feels when they are forgiven.

Why do we all need grace, because we all feel shame.

You may not realize this because you were born that way and may have never thought of it.

Animals don’t need grace because they don’t feel shame like we do.

We are a strange animal. The book of Genesis explains why we are a strange animal. Some take this book literally, I do not.

I do not understand the science behind our creation and do not pretend to know. Genesis is simply an attempt to explain.

First God breathed into us the breath of life and he did not do this with any other animal which set us apart from other animals which could explain why it is we managed to subdue the whole earth.

Second, we are ashamed of our nakedness. The only animal on this earth who acts like this. Who hides them self from each other out of shame. Not just our nakedness, but even our compassion we are ashamed of. For instance.  We will pet a strange dog or cat but we dare not pet a strange person. You may not have thought about this because you have been like this most of your life and it may not seem odd to you. But if you think about it, it is strange behavior.

Because we carry this shame around with us, we require grace in order to be saved from it.

This is the Grace that Jesus offers us freely if we choose to accept.  Before he died, his last words, “forgive them for they know what they do.” and “it is finished.” Because of this we are offered grace. I don’t exactly know how it works and don’t claim to know. There are those who claim they understand, but I don’t think they do because they certainly don’t act like they understand.

So there you have it, the meaning of grace
