Welcome to faith by Liz! I had a prodigal moment a few months ago after years of rebellion against the God of the universe. I’m not your “typical” Christian, and will probably disagree with many of you on many of the hot topics of the day, but I’ll take this opportunity to remind everyone of a few things we’d all do well to remember:
“In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.” Rupertus Meldenius
“So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” Jesus Christ in John 8:7 NKJV
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Jesus Christ in Matthew 7:1-5 NKJV
I want this to be a safe space for everyone to share, so please keep these things in mind when interacting with me or anyone else that comments. If we can all do that, I’m sure we’ll get along just fine.
