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.
We need to stop judging one another and learn tolerance and understanding, respecting differences and rather than punishment, how about rehabilitation instead. For example: http://shepardofpeace.tumblr.com/post/116381612988/useless-pen-in-this-african-tribe-when
Don’t let there be no more flowers
No more bees
or no trees
Before mother wakes up
She won’t be understanding
There will be a thunder shake
There will be no man made mountain standing
She will replant then
We will be starting all over again

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

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
