After this weekend and several “demeaning” posts I can’t keep quiet anymore. So this post is to all my friends who believe differently to what I do, or don’t believe at all.
In my opinion it probably takes more faith to believe that there was nothing and one day there was something and one day there will be nothing again.
What saddens me is that “we” don’t ridicule and mock other belief systems, while “we” are constantly under attack and being made to be idiots for what we believe.
However, I won’t apologise for being a Christian and for believing that one day I will meet my Maker in the place that He has prepared for me.
Your beliefs are yours, and my beliefs are mine. I respect that.
As some “Jesus freak” that actually went to Bloemfontein for the “It’s Time” gathering on Saturday, I believe that I have a right to voice my opinion on some of the claims that have been made.
I did not pay for a ticket. Entrance was free.
I did not pay for my parking. It was free.
I did not pay R20 for a bottle of water or R50 for a hot dog – I had to pack my own cooler box and snacks. There were NO food or refreshment stalls.
I did not have to pay to go to the loo – the “porta potties” were sponsored.
I did not buy a book or a dvd – there were none on sale.
Angus Buchan is NOT God, nor does he want or claim to be – he brought a message and facilitated a prayer for a million people.
No one was forced to say or do anything they did not agree with – it’s easy to hide in a crowd that big.
What I did experience was this;
Normal, everyday people are tired of immorality , addiction, corruption, crime, rape, murder, theft, rape, abuse, mismanagement, assault and everything else in between.
These people (myself included) were willing to travel toe Bloem and sit in the beating Freestate sun for hours, not to make a statement, bit to try to make a difference.
You, yes you that was all “whooohoooo” about the #ZumaMustFall marches, but stayed at home (or maybe you showed face), yet you laugh at million people that in your opinion are “stupid” for believing what they do, you are the ones that are mocking the people that wanted to do MORE.
Uncle Angus had the guts to attempt to get a million people together. What did you do to try to make a difference?
I am an unapologetic Christian and you can mock me as much as you like. The difference is, I am no longer a slave of fear. When you go to bed tonight and you fear for that break in, or that assault or God forbid that rape or death, I go to bed knowing that God is with me, and if I were to die tonight, I get to join Jesus in heaven. If I’m wrong, and I just go into “nothingness”, then at least I will know that I lived a life where I loved people. But, what if you’re wrong?
As I said before, your beliefs are yours and I respect them. I will not mock you, but, I will try my best to love you like Jesus loves me. All I ask is that you offer me and my fellow “Jesus Freaks” the same respect.
