This video inspired me in the design of the letters for the families of Sandy Hook in Newtown.

After watching it, you'll see why I am adding birds and a rainbow.

This is an edgy, funny at times, intelligent and thoughtful article that was in Esquire magazine. I was actually rather surprised Esquire printed it. PLEASE take a few minutes to read it. It's titled "What If Jesus Meant All That Stuff?"

Jesus came not to condemn but to love us.

I thought it was very well written and I think he totally nailed it on the top 3 presumptions.

Thank you for sharing this article!

I agree Linda. Loving others is how we share Jesus love.

I read it and he is spot on!! It reminded me of a saying one of the pastors at our church used to say " Jesus is a gentleman, He will never go where He is not invited !"

I like that Sandra.
I'd like to post it to Facebook's Trust in the Lord but know it may stir the pot a bit since he says hell and ass. Some members seem legalistic. what do you think?

Hebrews 13:8
You could just post parts of it, there are a lot of legalistic who would jump on the fact that you posted a bad word, even if you didn't speak the words.
I think that is why we need to - Abstain from all appearance of evil.
It is sad when we have such freedom in Christ that people will watch for any "appearance of evil". I think the reason they do that is so they can then say, well, I don't do ( fill in the blank) and they call themselves Christian, I am as good as they are! I hate to tell them, but measuring their self by me is of no use at all, they need to look at Christ, and I need to be pointing the way to Him
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Thanks for the wonderful advice Sandra.And you're so right. I think I will just pass posting the link and maybe quote a passage of his.

I know we are under scrutiny all of the time and I don't want to give anyone an open door. Thank you! Lovey dubby

I see funny things on FB all time that have one bad word or even the place it came from has a questionable title in it, I don't share it just because of it.
I will tell you one thing I learned a long time ago when I was still working--if you wear a Christian t-shirt to work, the devil will stay on you all day ! He loves to make you get all upset and act ugly while you are wearing a Christian shirt !
He is always looking for ways to ruin our testimony of being a Christian !

true! And I don't have Christian bumper stickers for that same reason.

Someone posted something cute on my FB page Sandra but the place it came from had a horrid title so I deleted it.

I have a feeling they don't notice where it's coming from, just that it's a cool graphic. Whistling

I read the entire article and agree with what the author said. It is just too sad that the "holier-than-thou, I'm higher-up-on-the-spiritual-ladder-than-you-are" types turn off the very people they say they are trying to reach. Thumbs down Sad
I am going to pray about it and if the Lord leads me to do so, I will post the article on my FB page. I really believe there are several of my FB friends who could benefit from reading it but there I go judging who needs it and who doesn't! Whistling Rolling my eyes. If you see it on my FB page, you will know I received a "Yes" from the Holy Spirit.

Thumbs up I did post it to my facebook page but I am wondering about the TRUST IN THE LORD page.
To be honest, the guys picture is scary kinda and at first I nearly did not read the article. Rann is the one who first posted it to her facebook page!

Well I can understand why you have not posted it to the TITL page. You have so many readers on that page and they are of different denominations and as far as we know you may have some of different faiths who read TITL. There is certainly food for thought in the article but TITL can not afford to offend those who might be baby Christians. More mature Christians should not have any problem with it but people are funny and you really never know who will be offended and who won't. I don't believe we should ever hesitate when we are defending the gospel "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ" but this is a different situation altogether.

I haven't even been over to Facebook today so I was not aware that you had posted it on your personal page nor that Rann had posted it, too. I am going to post it on my page, too. Thumbs up

Marilyn, Rann was first to post it!! I shared it from her.

And you are right as is Sandra, about offending any of the baby believers or even legalistic believers.
