Christian Actions

I am so glad I am a Christian and have the teachings of Christ, my head.

When I read of another religious group and their violence towards women,
I give thanks to God for my freedom and love in Him.

I do not take this for granted but rather I accept it with gratitude.


Reading from Colossians 3:12-14.
We are instructed.
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved.
Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.
Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."

Freedom....In Christ we are free.

Listen to His beautiful words...............
 "If you continue in my word, then you are my disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" John 8:31,32.

Christians are not to demand their own way!
They are not to coerce!
They are not to bully.
They are to...LOVE!!!

  1. Oh this is so true Crystal. In this country there are cases where women have been murdered for trying to go their own way.
    We have so much to be grateful and thankful for.

  11. Yes, our religion is based on love, and we women can flourish in it. Books on Islam like "Unveiling Islam", written by brothers who converted from Islam to Christianity, clearly show the differences between these two religions.
