It feels good to be back and I am so excited for the changes that should be happening in the future for Everything’s Magnificent. I plan to be back on my daily writing plan and all is right in the world as I head towards my final year as a graduate student at UNC. On the personal side, I’ve accomplished one of my personal life goals. I’ve finished reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelations.
Today was a weird day. I woke up hurting but happy it was Sunday. I wished Twitter a Happy Resurrection Sunday and was met with some unusual resistance. This interaction devolved into me defending why I am a Christian after the history of using Christianity to enslave and subvert my people. Why did I choose my faith?
In conjunction to yesterday’s post about Religion versus Gospel, I recently have been reflecting about God’s messages in the Bible. I find it amazing how we tend to pick and choose what about God we want to make law and what to ignore. I’ve seen some really condescending responses about how God outlawed cutting your hair, piercings, and pork. That it’s not something to take serious, but I see it differently.
