My Mom Rocks

My Mother is perhaps the most faithful and devout Christian's I've ever known
She's the epitome of tolerance and Love...
She's also smart and won't ever let people misquote the bible for their own agenda...

We Had Jehova's witness come by and leave pamphlets...
Mom will bust out her mega sized Bible and totally blow whatever they have to say...

Mom says: They never quote the WHOLE SCRIPTURE... Just the sections they want to use

Here's Today's example:

The Jehova's Witness Pamphlet:
FALSE RELIGION
"TOLERATES IMMORAL SEX"

In Western lands, church groups ordain gay and lesbian members of the clergy and urge governments to recognize same-sex marraiges. Even churches that condemn immorality have tolerated relgious leaders who have sexually abused children. What, though, does the Bible teach? It plainly states: "Do not be misled, Neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men... will inherit God's Kingdom" (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10) Do you know of religions that condone immoral sex?


What the Bible ACTUALLY STATES:
Corinthians 6:9, 10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceieved, "Neither fornicators, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.


HOWEVER READ ONE MORE SCRIPTURE!
Corinthians 11
And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were JUSTIFIED in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God


See? Creative editing bends the truth to serve an agenda.
What Corinthians says quite PLAINLY... is you can be all of those things without condemnation if you have faith. Basically in a nutshell.

My mother will be the first person to fight for truth in religion and she will always, always shove the truth back into these people's faces when they come by the house.
She'll read their stuff... whip out the bible and point out how they are twisting the truth to server their own purposes.

My Mom is a true Christian. Tolerant, forgiving, faithful unto her own beliefs and will never shove her choices down your throat unless...
you show her FALSE RELIGIOUS Propaganda and then she'll bash you with with the full power of her truth.

WOOT!

D, this is a subject dear to my heart. I have read the Bible a lot and I have seen how Jehovah Witnesses and others have twisted for whatever reason. It is sad they do it. And I think when they do twist it for their own dirty reasons, it besmirches the good Christians out there trying to do what is right.


I'm very proud of your mother. :) You've been an artist heroine of mine for years, now your mother is one of my heroines. :D

Did you see my own rant on this subject in my journal? It refers to this gal's little essay on Leviticus - I like her point that these groups are picking things to get natty about and ignoring other valid points, which kinda negates the whole argument:

Your mom does sound awesome! I like your argument!

I think I just wanna say that I love your mom! Not only does she sound awesome (So few moms these days do, and I'm a lucky cat to have one that is), but she is just..well..awesome!

And you can tell her I said so, too! ^_^
