I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners

But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? - Job 12:7-9. Morgan, 18, disciple of Christ.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean I’m never going to fall. It means that when I do, I land in loving arms.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean I will never feel pain. It means that I will never be alone in the midst of struggle.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean I am perfect. It means that I have a perfect God living in an imperfect self.

Being a Christian is not about our ticket to heaven. It’s about showing the lost and broken the ticket to love.

I don't want to sound racist or anything but I was wondering what the bible says able interracial dating. I like this guy and he likes me I just don't know what the bible was about that. Thank you.

The Old Testament Law commanded the Israelites not to engage in interracial marriage (Deuteronomy 7:3–4). However, the reason for this was not primarily racial. Rather, it was religious. The reason God commanded against interracial marriage for the Jews was that people of other races were worshippers of false gods. The Israelites would be led astray from God if they intermarried with idol worshippers, pagans, or heathens. This is exactly what happened in Israel, according to Malachi 2:11.
A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14). Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers. The Bible never says that interracial marriage is wrong. Anyone who forbids interracial marriage is doing so without biblical authority.
As Martin Luther King, Jr., noted, a person should be judged by his or her character, not by skin color. There is no place in the life of the Christian for favoritism based on race (James 2:1–10). In fact, the biblical perspective is that there is only one “race”—the human race, with everyone having descended from Adam and Eve. When selecting a mate, a Christian should first find out if the potential spouse is born again by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:3–5). Faith in Christ, not skin color, is the biblical standard for choosing a spouse. Interracial date or marriage is not a matter of right or wrong but of wisdom, discernment, and prayer. x

My sin in the past: forgiven. My current struggles: covered. My future failures: paid in full all by the marvelous, infinite, matchless grace found in the atoning work of the cross of Jesus Christ. - Matt Chandler (via littlethingsaboutgod)

I’m not going to get too much into things right now because I just got back from a really long trip, but I have realized that I haven’t been hearing much from Christians about what has been happening in Ferguson. It’s important for us, especially as Christ followers, to be loving on this community. To be honest, I am astounded and horrified that the cop that killed Michael Brown has been sent more money and has received more support. I do honestly believe that he is guilty of murder. It doesn’t matter if Michael Brown had stolen something, the fact is that he was unarmed and shot to death. This is about race. We cannot just allow this to happen when we can do something about it. We must of course pray. I pray that God brings justice and brings our country together. These are our brothers and sisters out there being oppressed. We must also love. We have been called to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, to love others as Jesus has loved us. Do you realize that Jesus was put to death on a cross for us? That is how much Jesus loves us, and that is the kind of love we need to be loving others with. I understand that others may have different views on the situation, but the bottom line is that we as Christians need be loving and praying more for our community.
