I will never stop posting about what’s right in the eyes of God just because I might lose followers. It’s preposterous to even imagine that a true Christian would care more about their followers in a social site than speaking the truth about God’s Word. I try to open the eyes of people to the truth of God’s Word and I will keep doing so until the day I am gathered by my God, the God of Israel, and join Him in His Kingdom.
This Tumblr is an extension of myself and since I’m a follower of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God’s only son, that means my Tumblr is just as much of a Christian as I am. I will never bow down to any other god besides my God. Popularity, peer-pressure, luxury, none of that matters to me one bit. My eyes are focused on the end game, which is Heaven. How can you say you want to spend eternity in Heaven if you aren’t even willing to spend your time worshipping Him on your limited existence here on Earth? If you are going to follow me, you have to be ready to be hit by the truth because the truth sets you free. As Jesus tells us in John 8:31-32 “Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Every now and then I lose some followers because of my stand against abortion, homosexuality, idolatry, false religions, foul language, drunkenness, and all other sins which the Lord detests, and it’s a shame people can’t cope with the truth and choose to unfollow me but I’m not losing any sleep over it. My views are what God tells us in the Bible and His views are perfect and sinless, unlike our views which are easily corrupted by sin. I’m not in the business of getting personal followers, I’m in the business of getting faithful followers for Christ. All I can do is hope that one day the peoples of the world will decide to get closer to God and accept His Word and His views on how things are supposed to be rather than to settle for what society and the Devil hopes for the world to be.
As we are told in Isaiah 7 “If you do not stand firm in your faith, then you will not stand at all.” You can either be loved by the world and end up in Hell, or have the world hate you due to your faithful love towards God, but you gotta look at the bigger picture, even though the world will hate you for your beliefs in Christ you will get to go to Heaven for your faithful service. Stand firm with God, never compromise. To live in a life where you have to compromise what is taught in His Word is to not wanting to faithfully serve God. If you can’t faithfully serve Him while on Earth, how can you expect to faithfully serve Him for all eternity in Heaven?
I used to have hundreds of people on my ignore list here on Tumblr, people that run porn blogs, homosexual blogs, Catholic/Muslim blogs, blogs dedicated to say that the Bible is “evil”, blogs that make fun of Christ, people that had sent hate and rude mail to me, and all sorts of other blogs ran by lost souls, but I removed them all from my ignore recently, after all Jesus tell us in Matthew 5 “If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else?" I now know the reason of my existence here on Earth, which is to spread God’s Word and maybe one day those lost souls will realize how far they’ve gone astray from the Lord and will seek Him out and be saved. I struggled with this, after all these lost souls go believe in everything that goes against what God teaches us, but the truth is that those people are blind to God’s truth and if I ignore them how can God use me to spread His Word? If I can be the spark that makes them realize just how lost they are, I’ll gladly let the Lord use me for that purpose. How are we suppose to follow Jesus’ example and be a light in such a dark world if we close the door on other people that are lost in the darkness? Remember what Paul wrote in Philippians 2:14-15: “Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people." So please, become the beacon of light that will steer our lost brothers and sisters in their moment of darkness back to the light.
A well-known British preacher from over a century ago, Charles H. Spurgeon, once said that “Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.” We are representatives of Christ in this world. I’m not saying that we should all become missionaries in the sense of going out to Asia or Africa or some far away countries - although if that’s your calling *high five* - but I mean in the sense of spreading God’s Word to our friends, random people on the internet, our neighbors and anyone we can. My love for Christ compels me to spread His Word to everyone. I want people to be saved. Has my strong attitude towards worship of God and my faithfulness to the Gospel caused me to lose some friends? Yes, it has, but I rather lose a friend and hope to have sown the seed in that person’s life which will lead them to Christ because I was honest with them rather than pretend to be a lukewarm Christian that’s okay with the practices of the world and lie to anyone about important issues regarding the Bible. I want people to experience God’s grace. So I’ll keep on preaching the truth as the Bible tells us until I’m not on this Earth anymore.
Also, please, never trade your Bible reading time to socialize on the internet. Hitting the like/reblog buttons won’t save you, only the Bible will. Get close to God and build a personal and close relationship with the Lord. Never let Tumblr, Facebook or whatever other site on the internet draw you away from the Lord. Reading the Bible is the best way to get closer to the Lord.
I will always speak the truth about His Word, whether it might upset people or not. I will never be ashamed of God’s Word.
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.
