You Don’t Need Self-Esteem

We are who God says we are.

Inspirational Christian Blogs

By Jennifer


Low self-esteem is a thinking disorder in which a person feels incapable, unworthy, incompetent, and unlovable. Many people suffer from this debilitating condition, hence why depression, suicide rates, and self-harm are rampant. While depression has been proven by studies to be a medical condition in some cases, low self-esteem hasn’t. Why do you think society has so many problems in this area? Maybe because there’s a lot of pressure to attain “perfection” in all aspects of our lives in our society and if we fail, we become a laughing stock. We become nothing.

Let’s see…there’s got to be something in the Bible somewhere telling us to feel good and amazing about ourselves. That’ll surely solve our self-esteem issues for every single day of the year. 

Actually….

The Bible doesn’t state anywhere that we should feel good about ourselves. Although David acknowledged and proclaimed that he was fearfully and…

‘Pansexual’ pervert proposes adding P for pedophiles to LGBT

DR. EOWYN MAY 24, 2017 FEATURED ARTICLES, PROPHECY/END TIMES, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 COMMENTS

We warned you about the slippery slope.

A self-appointed spokesman for the LGBT “community” named Ernst Steiner is urging LGBTs to add P to LGBT.

P is for “pedosexuals” — the Left’s new Orwellian euphemism for pedophiles.

Here’s Steiner’s propaganda of April 23, 2017 for a blog he founded called Heart Progress because, you see, fisting and banging bungholes and raping children is all about ♥ loove ♥, and “love is ageless” because pedophilia is just another sexual orientation and attraction, those noble LGBTPs just want to “legalize love”, and only “bigot” and “hatemongers” oppose and persecute those endearing “pedosexuals”:

For years, the struggle against hate and bigotry has gone on. For years, sexual minority groups of all sorts have faced persecution. Now, in the 21st century, we are finally beginning to see that bigotry begin to disappear. Homosexuals have the right to marry, minority genders are finally being recognized, transgender children are finally getting the treatment they need to be who they are, and most importantly, these groups are finally being given minority status.

But the sexual liberation movement has only just begun, and there’s still more work to be done. Yes, homosexuals have the right to marriage in some places, but there still needs to be global laws to ensure they have the right to marriage in all places. Sure, transgenders are being recognized for who they are, but discrimination against them is still rampant in today’s world. Luckily, these issues are being tackled by progressive groups across the globe, but there is still one minority group that is marginalized to the point of neglect: pedosexuals.

Since the beginning of the LGBT+ movement, pedosexuals have been there helping to achieve sexual liberation for all. Unfortunately, pedosexuals have also been the ones to stand up and take the heat to help prevent abuse toward their other sexual minority friends. This act of bravery among pedosexuals in the name of sexual equality has led to them being the ones being persecuted to this day, despite also being born with a different attraction. Now that the sexual liberation movement is succeeding, bigots have now focused all of their hate on pedosexuals, as they have already lost the war against other sexual minorities.

So the question still stands: Should the LGBTQ+ movement acceptpedosexuals? I think that the answer is quite obvious: Absolutely! Pedosexuals have helped achieve so much for the other sexual minority groups, that it would simply be unjust to allow them to suffer in discrimination due to hateful bigots on the right. Pedosexuals are going through what other sexual minorities went through thirty years ago, all because they were willing to take the heat so that their allies within the sexual liberation movement could move forward.

We of the LGBTQ+ movement need to do the moral thing and progress passed this bigotry toward these sexual minorities that is so often encouraged by the systemically bigoted mainstream. We cannot stoop as low as the hatemongers that have kept ourselves down, and we need to stand up for those who’ve held such an important role in our liberation. As a pansexual man, I am in full support of pedosexual rights, and you should be too.

The dictionary says “pansexual” is someone who’s sexually attracted to people regardless of their gender. But why restrict yourself to just “people” of all genders? That’s species discrimination!

Just you wait and see. Next on the agenda of pansexual Ernst Steiner and his ilk will be bestiality, which they prefer to call zoophilia, ’cause banging animals is all about loove, loove, loove.

Happy? Mother’s Day

Posted on

Sue's Pen2PaperBlog

Today is Mother’s Day and I have avoided turning on the T.V., going to church, and those things that remind me of what a mother is supposed to be but that many of us did not experience.

Growing up in an abusive home where the abuse is ignored or perpetrated by the mother does not leave happy memories for many of us. Whether it was the Dad doing the abuse or the mother inflicting the physical or emotional pain, it leaves more than just a bad taste in the mouth of the surviving child/adult.

We hear from the pulpits across America the testimonies of those mother’s that raised their children in loving and caring homes. I’m happy for those children that have those memories. They are truly blessed more than they probably realize.

But what about the others? Those of us that hear the wonderful testimonies and sit quietly trying…

Mother’s Day

ANNA WALDHERR A Voice Reclaimed, Surviving Child Abuse

Mother’s Day message, Author Serge Melki (CC BY-SA 2.0 Generic)

WARNING:  Graphic Images

Mother’s Day can be a difficult time for abuse victims.  Mothers may have been the non-offending parent in our lives – the parent who provided us some measure of solace, but ultimately failed to rescue us from abuse.

Our grief can be palpable on Mother’s Day.  No relationship is more important than that with our mothers.  But unresolved emotions may, also, swirl:  confusion, love, anger, rejection, emptiness, resignation, empathy.

Self-recrimination has no place among these.  No child in an abusive situation is equipped to ask why.  Evil is the all-pervasive environment in which such children are raised.  Though entirely innocent of their abuse, children are engineered to blame themselves for it.  That misguided sense of responsibility often extends far into adulthood.

Even when questions are asked in later years, non-offending parents can rarely supply their adult children…

Honoring Mommy & Daddy

Posted on

images[9]

The Ten Commandment are given to us to protect and enhance our daily lives. A young child is taught to respect the commandments and all of the scriptures. Hopefully through, and with, the love of their parents or some other loving individual.

Many times the commandment, “Honor your mother and father” is taught by an abusive person as a means of control and manipulation. His/her distorted version of this commandment can and does cause many problems later in life for the survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

It can also distort His word for those who have been physically or emotionally abused. Particularly if that abuse was from those closest to the child, the parent.

“These are the commandments the Lord

proclaimed in a loud voice…

Honor your father and your mother

as the Lord your God has commanded you,

so that you may live long and that it

may go well with you in the land

your God is giving you.”

Duet. 5:16 

“Children, obey your parents

in the Lord, for this is right.

“Honor your father and your mother,…

that it may go well with you and

that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”

Eph. 6:1-3

“Honor your father and mother” must be looked at more closely for those of us who have difficulty with that commandment.  Look at the Ephesians 6 verse closely. There is one key phrase that needs clarifying. “In the Lord.” What does that mean? Simply put, “In the Lord” means in accordance with God’s commands! If this phrase was not there, specifically telling us that we are to obey and honor as Christ would have us do, there would be no holds barred, no boundaries.

God placed the innocent child in the charge of adults and told them specifically how they should raise this child. Your parents, be it biological, adoptive, grandparents, foster parents, or step-parents are directly responsible to God for your well-being; physical, emotional, spiritual. All of these people are intended to be agents of God’s love and protection.

As adults we have the responsibility to keep children from harms way. We have very specific, clear-cut guidelines that the Lord put in place to show us how to do that. One of those is:

“No-one is to approach any close relative

to have sexual relations. I am the Lord.”

Leviticus 18:6

The verses continue on to specify mother, father, aunt, uncle, grandparents, sisters, brothers, in-laws, step children, and so on. (See Lev. 18) You can’t get any clearer than that!

If you were abused by a relative, that sin is not only a sin against you but against God.  If your abuser was not a relative he/she has still sinned against God and will also pay accordingly.

“Whoever welcomes a little child like

this in My name welcomes Me,

But if anyone causes one of these

little one’s who believe in Me to sin,

it will be better for him to have a

millstone hung around his neck

and to be drowned in the

depths of the sea.”

Matthew 18:5 

You will notice He does not specify “Dad welcomes…” or “Mother welcomes…,” or for that matter “Uncle welcomes…” He says, “Anyone causes…”

As adults Father God gives us the absolute responsibility to not harm; physically, sexually, emotionally, or spiritually the children in our society.

“…your Father in heaven is not

willing that ANY of these

little ones should be lost.

Matthew 18:14

As adults within our society our status is looked upon as authority to the child. It makes no difference if the child is ours or someone else’s. Tell a child that you have never met before to sit in the swing properly, for example. That child will more than likely not question your authority. He/she will promptly take the proper sitting position. (At least that’s how it was when I was growing up.)

Our responsibility as being older than the child is to look out for the well-being of those younger. Parents, neighbors, or strangers have this responsibility. Would you stand by as a child played on a railroad track, seeing the train approaching from the distance? Of course not! That is part of the responsibility that we carry. That the Lord Jesus gave to us.

“These commandments that I give you

(everyone) are to be put upon your hearts.

Impress them on your children…

tie them as symbols upon your hands

and bind them on your foreheads.”

Duet. 6: 6-9

 In other words, the Lord is telling us that we are to eat, drink, walk, talk, speak, teach, and be as Christ-like as humanly possible. We are to be a Christ-like example to others. Especially children.

“Train a child in the way

he should go, and when

he is old he will not

turn from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

“Train a child…” We are all a part of the training of children. Even if we do not have children we are to be a Christ-like example to them.

What about honoring?” Honor your father and mother.” The Greek word for honor is TIUAW, which means, “acknowledge the status of.” Another form of the Greek word for honor is TIUN,NS, which means  “respect, recognition.”

We show respect and recognize the status of our elders, be it parents or others. By the child, in the example used earlier, sitting properly in the swing, respect for that elder is being shown. By acknowledging that authority there was no argument. The child promptly sat properly.

By the very act of recognizing the older person’s position we are honoring that person. The Lord said, “honor your father and mother.” We do! by recognizing their position as our parents, by obeying their commands; right or wrong. If they demanded we do something, as a child, we obeyed because of their position and authority.

Throughout scripture we will find directives, to parents in particular.

“Fathers do not embitter your children,

or they will become discouraged.”

Col. 3:21

“For I have chosen him, so that he

will direct his children and his household

after him to keep the way of the Lord

by doing what is right and just…”

Gen. 18:19

“Fathers, do not exasperate

(do not nag or arbitrarily assert authority)

your children; instead, bring them up

in training and instruction

of the Lord…”

Col. 3:19-20

“Husbands, love your wives

and do not be harsh to them.

Children, obey your parents

in everything,

for this pleases the Lord…”

Col. 3:19-20

This last verse can show us, in my opinion, that by doing what we were told, (as though we had a choice!) we pleased the Lord as His command says. It was our abuser(s) who chose to break the commandments of our Lord.

“…choose for yourselves this day

whom you will serve…”

Joshua 24:15

Obviously, our abuser(s) chose not to serve the Father in heaven. When we were told, “It’s our secret” or some derivative of that, our abuser was admitting his/her guilt. He/she was keeping us silent so that he/she would not be found guilty of the sin that he/she chose to commit against you and against Christ.

“…assemble the people before Me

to hear My words so that they

may learn to revere Me as long as

they live in the land and may teach

them to their children.”

Duet.4:10 

The lessons that we were being taught through the abusive actions of others were not in keeping with what Christ said for people to do. If His truths and His commandments were being taught in a Christ-like manner, which means that we have the life of Christ within us and the power of the Holy Spirit, we would never have experienced the pain that was inflicted upon our innocent souls.

We would not now have a distortion within our inner being, a bad taste in our mouth, and there would be no hesitation to even speak the words, “Honor your father and mother.”

We must also keep in mind that another of His commandments tells us to love one another. We must learn to love one another as Christ loves us. Forgiveness is tough! But, through the Holy Spirit within us, we can forgive those who taught us the wrong connotation of “Honor your father and mother.”

“May my vindication come from you;

May your eyes see what is right.”

Psalm 17:2

ANNA WALDHERR A Voice Reclaimed, Surviving Child Abuse

“Face of Christ” by Claude Mellan (1649), Rijksmuseum Amsterdam (PD)

Abuse frequently destroys the faith of victims, undermining our capacity to trust.  While we may reject God or despise Him, He loves and values us.  It can be difficult for us to reconcile God’s love with our experience.  But that love is real.

Let me try and explain what I mean.

Self-Worth and the Cross

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3: 16).

As abuse victims, we were taught at an early age that we were worthless.  Our needs were insignificant.  Our feelings did not matter.  Our bodies were not our own.

These were the inferences we drew from our experience with those who rightly should have loved and cared for us.  God, however, sees things differently.  To Him…
