Tumblr’s hedonistic culture is just too much for me seriously

2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

I am a weak sinner who constantly fails my God, and I will stay transparent. I don’t have it all together, and that’s okay because it’s in my faults that the saving power of grace is displayed. So I celebrate victoriously over the cracks in my soul- they will soon only be testimonies to grace.

"If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 4:11 NIV
"You can’t keep dancing with the devil and ask why you’re still in hell."
Something my friend told me the other day (via inforests)

It was bound to happen sometime. A prosperity gospel teacher has invaded our church it seems. Pray for my pastor as he mends what is broken.

"If we desire to exude the character of Christ, we must stop trying to succeed by mimicking what we know to be “good,” and instead engage the one who himself is good."

This makes me so upset. It makes the Bible look bad by taking out one specific verse and not putting it in the the context it originally came from. Take the first photo for example, Psalm 137:9, if you actually READ Psalm 137 you’d understand that they’re talking about the Babylonians who held the author of the psalm and his country captive. Psalm 137:3 says the Babylonians where his tormentors, obviously he wants to get justice for his country. Also if you actually study it, you understand that this isn’t even a commandment, the entire psalm itself (Psalm 137) was put in the Bible to explain how the Bablylonians were causing the country being held captive, caused trouble and how it was prophesying how it would be destructed. It is in no way commanding Bible readers to kill their children. So please, next time you see something like this, read the Bible, take the context into consideration, understand what it means. Thank you.

I don’t know the last time people fairly considered a Bible passage on this website it seems.
