I just wanted to post a new “about me” since I’ve like never done it here, apart my from About Me page.
I take the Bible seriously – incredibly seriously. It is the Word of Life. But I don’t take it literally.
Like I said in my previous post about the Old Testament, I do believe the Old Testament stories have some basis in historical truth, but I don’t think what is written is exactly how it happened, or that Moses wrote the first five books, etc etc.
I have a complicated relationship with the church, and Christian culture in general. I’m a moderate-to-liberal leaning Christian who fights for all rights of humanity and creation, and I believe that we need to be kind and love others (and ourselves) as Christ unarguably loves us. With that, church is a place of communion with other believers and seekers, where we share our highs, our lows, our understanding, and our hope in Jesus. I’m moderate because I believe in modesty in apparel and speech for all sexes/genders, and take the Bible somewhat literally (as I said above), but that’s about it.
And as far as modesty, I believe it should be a choice, and that every person is free to describe how modesty/immodesty is for them.
A year ago, I was a Unitarian Christian who underwent a conversion to the Trinity this past Easter. Holy Week was a trans-formative week for me, as I finally understood God dying on the cross for all of us. I know regularly pray to Jesus, as he is the gateway to God the Father. Most of the time, I just pray to the whole Trinity to acknowledge God in His Fullest.
Where I stand in social stuff
I am very liberal and a Democrat politically. Like I said above, I fight for rights for all: trans folks, black rights, immigrant’s rights, and women’s reproductive rights. These four things are incredibly important to me, and I focus on funding these four areas when they need help. If you try to post anti-queer, anti-Planned Parenthood comments here, you will get blocked. I see the holiness of each unborn child, but I cannot force a women/whomever to carry a child if they don’t want to or can’t. That will NEVER be my place to judge them or force them or whatever. I fully support a woman who has an abortion.
Thanks for reading!
