From my good friend Alan Creedy!!
I WAS ATTACKED FOR MY CHRISTIAN FAITH THIS WEEK AND GOD TURNED IT INTO GOOD.
A prominent member of my industry told me this week that because I am an Evangelical Christian and I voted for PRESIDENT Trump there is a special place in hell for me.
At first, his blunt condemnation just made me angry and hurt. Being rejected for any reason is not fun.
I took it to prayer though and here is how I grew in faith. It occurred to me that this must be what my gay, black, hispanic and other disenfranchised friends have been telling me. This is how it feels to experience an unwarranted, judgmental and vicious attack based on who someone thinks you are rather than on who you really are. And then He comforted me
==> Who are you that judge another man’s servant? To his own master he stands and falls. Yes, he shall be held up by God who is able to make him stand.
==> Bless them that persecute you, bless and curse not
==> Recompense no man evil for evil…if possible live peaceably with all men
==> Give place unto wrath for vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord.
==> Overcome evil with good.
==> ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God
==> It is by grace you are saved and that not of your selves it is the gift of god
==> If you confess with the mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead you will be saved.
So, there you have it. God took the evil and helped me understand how I might be a light.
