‘Zing’ my phone went, and I knew without looking at it that it was another ‘Happy Sunday’ or ‘Hope you went to church’s text message. If I was lucky, it’ll be a ‘Go-To-Church’ meme. Yay!!! Not. It may interest you to know that while all these people are sending me all these texts and all, am just here in my boxers thinking of a late breakfast, some extra weekend skin care, writing up some post ideas and of course low-key stalking my favorite Instagram people. 😁.
Update- I did a Style Crush Post on one of my favorite Instagram people here.
Why? I can actually imagine some overly religious zealot wincing at this, but I have Been looking for a religion for sometime now. I was born and raised a Christian, let’s not point fingers at any church but It was a Pentecostal. And as far back, as I can remember when I asked ‘What’s your religion?’ I promptly answer ‘Christian’. I still do. But I have been questioning alot of things lately and my Religious Inclination has been one of those things. I constantly wonder, if I believe in God, Jesus and Christianity merely because I was raised to. This conviction within me, this belief is it because I know deep down he exists. Or is it because that is all I ever knew.
I honestly don’t have an answer to that. But, the truth is the idea of someone above, loving you unconditionally, believing in you definitely doesn’t hurt. So yeah, I have this unexplainable, insurmountable conviction that he does exist. But I do not have this unexplainable, insurmountable conviction in any one church. Why? For one, they are too contradictory- case in point
One church says ”Women!!! Don’t wear trousers” and another says ”Women!!!! Don’t wear trousers at church” and another ” it’s okay to wear trousers”. And because I always have an opinion, I say ”But God is everywhere, he is In the church just as much as he is at our homes, right? And besides the Bible never said ‘Yo ladies, don’t wear trousers” it said don’t wear what belongs to a man. And darling, those trousers are definitely not for a guy”. But what do I know? Don’t even get me started on the struggle for churchmembers *coughs* customers *coughs* like its a personal business, if a member goes to another branch of the same church, not another church, the pastors face becomes as sour as mine when I turn to watch E! and they aren’t showing The Kardashians or Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.
One other problem, I have with churchgoing days. Is having to deal with the pretentious people. You’ll see a woman beating another woman’s Child because the Children were playing and hers said the other child hit him/her, and the woman is ready to go all Power Rangers on the poor kid. Or another lady is sharing food in the church and makes sure her kids have three servings and other people haven’t tasted the food. Including me!!!!! And she will say the food has finished. Or is it that the ‘big men’s stay closer to the altar while the ‘small men’s stay as far as possible so as not to ‘taint’ God? Or that Usher who always tells me not to cross my leg in church that I am not in my father’s parlour and a part of me just wants to say ‘Uhm, technically I am’ but years of unfortunate polite manners won’t let me.
Here, is how I see it. Being a Christian means I have to fuel my actions with love. And nothing else. Before I go, muse this over
John 3- 16
For God so love the world, that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life”
You got that? Whosoever believe? That’s the keyword, folks? I believe in him so I got everlasting life? Or do you think God has changed his Mind? If you don’t then just Believe in Christ and share some love around? And you can also share this post with share buttons below? As well as like it. And also comment.
