We never thought that we would be the odd-man out – the minority; yet we find ourselves at the threshold of being brought face-to-face with what a peculiar people means. What it means to be called out and set aside for God. No other time on this Earth than in our recent history has it been glaringly obvious, religion, organized or not has exposed how different we really are or not.
The world is shifting to become more inclusive regardless of its tide going against the core principle beliefs of our faith.
The new tag word is love, but that’s just an old cliché or better still an abused platitude that has run its course. It has nothing at all to do with love – its rebellion.
The Inquisition is now in full-force against what we once called “The Church”, but we are so splintered and fragmented as a body, no wonder we aren’t as efficacious as we once were and the power and leadership has be stripped; or haven’t you noticed?
Transgender restrooms and gay rights triumphantly marching right past civil rights, leaving blacks once again disenfranchised in our plight – used and abused. Gay rights have made strides in the past decade that eclipsed what we as blacks have been struggling for since our feet touched soil in this new homeland – centuries and counting…
Everyone’s agenda nowadays trumps that of which the Lord has called us to be Stallworth’s of the faith against. Quite ironic that Trump is running for President… How apropos indeed… And to be against doesn’t mean that you should not exist, but that we as Christians also have the same rights to believe, that you have not to believe. God himself doesn’t force us to do his will, because that’s not love. Love says, “I’ll do your will because I love you”. We fight past our own will and submit ours to his because he first loved us and what he did on the cross blows our minds, and we strive through trial and error to right wrongs and live as pleasing to him as his graces us to be.
We only have this one world to co-exist upon and each of us has the God-given right to live it as we so choose. We all are pro-choice if you ask me. Just allow me to serve my God and to give him all the glory, honor and praise. And if YOU choose to join with me, and do the same unabashedly in love of The Father, The Son (Jesus) and The Holy Ghost, we can reverse the tide and show that the love of God surpasses all understanding.
Let’s love on God again and learn what that feels like, and it won’t be so peculiar to you.
