Well, the other day my friend, Shammah posted something about a video he had seen on ‘God Tube’…
The video was sick. But you may find it normal if you watch it. But there’s things there to look very closely at. So, before you read on, you should watch it to have any clue what I’m saying.
The one that stuck out to me the most, however, was the guy who gave his life digging wells, helping orphans and so on. Of course they had the guy act a little arrogant. And then, they weigh out his ‘goodness’ and sure enough, he didn’t make the cut.
Then, the dumb looking, dopey ‘christian’ walks up with a folder filled with sins… Jesus himself, (you could tell it was him because he had a goofy shirt on that said ‘Jesus’) he walks up and takes the scale for the bum.
Am I mistaken? Did not Isaiah say that true religion was caring for widows and orphans. And if you read Shammah’s blog, you’ll see an irrefutable passage, straight from the lips of Christ, talking of what the judgment truly is.
A video like this is irresponsible and gives license to so many bad paths. Those unfamiliar with these sorts of doctrines are easily left to believe that whatever powerless and impotent god set this standard has been now thwarted by his… um… son? Because if this Jesus fellow stands up for us, and God looks at him instead of us… then I guess we’re okay? What?
What on earth is that?
It makes no sense whatsover!!!
I know Jesus. He’s changed my life…. HE’S CHANGED ME! And he didn’t do it by making God look at Him instead of me, He did it for real. He entered my life and day by day is transforming me.
Ask anyone who knew me 10 years ago. I’m not the same.

My Father, the God of creation is awesome. Because I’m a sick, self-driven individual, and He’s bit by bit working His way through the blackened nooks and crannies of my heart. I’m so thankful for it.
I’m really glad that I’m not amassing some massive file folder of sin and mistakes that God’s going to have to overlook because of some dogmatic loop hole. I get to look at my mistakes each and every day in the lap of my Father. He sends His Spirit to guide me, and the Church around me, day by day, to truth. And if you see good fruit in us, then well, there ya go. It’s because He’s really really real!
Anyway… I’m glad I’m His. I’m glad that the Father wants me, and you, near him, and He truly did send His son to bring us there.
I suppose that the main reason I’m posting this, is because I don’t want my friends believing and following a weak kneed, powerless god that can’t ever change you, help you, truly set you free, but only pretend or turn a blind eye away from you, and act like nothing ever happened.
I don’t want you to miss out on what the power of Christ can really do. If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!… and not just in theory.
