Yes, there are a lot of bad things in the church, BUT I STILL LOVE JESUS!

Yes, there are a lot of bad and sad stories to say about the church. Believe me I know them all. I've known people to cheat on their wives, some people are mean and judgemental. Yes, it is confusing to date someone in church, believe me I've been there and done that. Not only that, but I'm part middle-eastern which makes it even more diffacult for me because everybody thinks bad of me before even getting to know me. BUT EVEN WITH ALL OF THAT, I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP BECAUSE EVEN WHEN I WAS IN THE WORST MOMENT IN MY LIFE BECAUSE MY MOM WAS IN THE HOSPITAL AND I HAD NO HUMAN PERSON TO COMFORT ME, I FELT A CERTAIN PEACE IN MY HEART. WHEN I GO TO A CHURCH I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WILL NOT LIKE ME, OR MAYBE EVEN JUDGE ME BUT WHO CARES!!!!! I'M GOING TO WALK THRU THOSE PEARLY GATES EVEN IF IT MEANS GOING IN BY THE SKIN OF MY TEETH. THE BIBLE SAYS THE KINGDON OF HEAVEN SUFFERS VIOLENCE AND VIOLENT WILL TAKE IT BY FORCE... YES ITS EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS. IT MEANS TO HAVE A LITTLE BACK BONE, IT MEANS SUFFERING, IT MEANS SOMETIMES BEING REJECTED, IT MEANS FALLING IN SIN AND YET GET UP AND RISE AGAIN. A RIGTEOUS MAN MAY FALL SEVEN TIMES AND THE LORD WILL MAKE HIM RISE AGAIN... THE REASON I SAY NOT TO GIVE UP IS BECAUSE WE ARE HERE ON BORROWED TIME ON THIS EARTH. THIS IS YOUR LIFE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. YOUR SPIRIT IS 100% REAL JUST AS YOUR BODY IS 100% REAL. IF YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR CHURCH GO TO ANOTHER ONE UNTIL YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE, OR THAT YOU FEEL SPIRITUALLY EDIFIED. BECAUSE GOD WILL NEVER LIE TO YOU HE SAID HE SHALL SEND THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GUIDE YOU TO ALL TRUTH. IF YOU KEEP YOUR EYES ON GOD INSTEAD OF MAN IF YOU REALIZE YOU ARE SPECIAL AND HE DIED FOR YOU. YOU WONT GIVE UP. DONT GIVE UP EVER!!

IMPERFECT CHRISTIAN, AND YET HAVEN'T GIVEN UP
