Christian Brothers Disagree Sometimes

Love deeply verse

Good evening brothers and sisters.  I wanted to take a minute to explain a few things.  I had a good Christian brother that I met here on WordPress disagree with how I honored the victims of 9/11 today.  He blocked me on his twitter and stopped following my blog.  That is unfortunate, but it happens.  Sometimes Christian brothers disagree on things.  Peace to you brother.

I want to thank everyone who has been reading my blog!  I appreciate you all even though we sometimes have different views on things.  This site is a place where you are going to hear the truth.  Some of it might be hard to hear, but I won’t apologize for speaking the truth.  We are to preach the Truth of the Gospel and speak truth to power regarding issues in our society.  Jesus and the Apostles did the same thing.

I honored my mother in law who passed away six years ago today.  I also honored our fallen brothers and sisters today by encouraging people to seek the truth, sharing Bible verses, and saying prayers.  My posts regarding 9/11 were not meant to be offensive in any way and I was not talking about politics.  I was speaking truth regarding something I care deeply about because I love my country deeply, and I want justice for those who died.  It had nothing to do with politics!  I want to make that very clear.  I was told what I was talking about was the same thing as talking about politics at a funeral.  That is not at all what I was doing!  I rebuke that sinful assessment of my writing in the Name of Jesus!

I have made it very clear many times on my blog that I will always be real, open, and honest about what I believe.  I am not going to back down from that.  If I offended you in any way, it is always your prerogative to leave my site.  Just don’t tweet angry emojis or cuss in your blog posts about it.  You are wasting your breath, you will just need to repent later, and it’s not going to phase me in the least anyway.

Nobody is going to step on my ministry, and I will just keep marching for Christ.  I have been serving Jesus and preaching the Gospel for almost 22 years and I am not stopping now!  The better way to confront me would be to speak to me directly in an intelligent conversation.  I am always up for a good conversation and I don’t mind hearing how someone might disagree with me as long as it is respectful.  As Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”  We have freedom of speech and I am going to speak freely on my blog without fear of persecution or judgment, even from other Christians.  I hope you do the same!

I know who I am in Jesus, and I am confident in Him.  I know the Word of God and I am confident in that too.  I will pick the truth up when it falls in the street, I will dust it off, and I will send it on its way.  That applies to the Bible and to issues in society.  I strive to speak the truth in love, and it was in love that I wrote all of my posts today.

I didn’t expect such harsh judgment from another brother in Christ.  I love and forgive him.  May God’s love wash over our hearts and may His will be done.

Grace and peace to you all!

In Christ Forever,

Ryan
