Formal '13 recap
Did I mention that the formal was amazing? Cuz it was. Pictures can be found here.
This year was so so so SO much more fun than past years. I'm going to peg it on the fact that I was surrounded by awesome friends and didn't have a boyfriend to worry about.
I made a new friend, who shed light on a subject that I've always been a bit opinionated on. I won't share his name, to protect him, but I will share that he's gay. Now, anyone whose been reading my blog, knows I disagree with the life style, and that hasn't changed, but I understand them better now.
I still believe that it is 100% a choice, but not such a simple one. Each person (you and me included) is born with specific sinful tendencies. One person may have a low tolerance for becoming an alcoholic, while the next is the physical acts . That doesn't mean that any of the sinful tendencies are unbeatable.
I'm going to get a little personal for a minute here. A few years ago.. I was leaning towards being Bi. Now, I never did anything about it, but it was something I went through, and by God's grace I was delivered from. It's not as simple as one might think, to just say no. To just shut down what your flesh is asking for.. it's something that can't explain.
My point to this post is to raise awareness. He knows that I don't agree with him. He also knows that I'm not going to hate on him just because we have different sins. I spent most of Friday night hanging out and laughing with him. He is so sweet, and funny, and smart, and most Christians would shun him just because his sin is more obvious than theirs.
Checkout the log in your eye before plucking the speck in theirs.
