Language and Living

This post is very hard to write.

I am a Christian.    I try to live a righteous life, according to the Bible.

 But lately, the Holy Spirit has been dealing with me about somethings that I’m doing that are contrary to the Bible, which is what I say I believe in.    So, I either have to live up to what I say, and therefore, what the Bible says, or shut up.

I’ve always known that reading horoscopes are wrong.   According to the Bible.    Galatians 5: 19-21 says:

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Witchcraft includes a lot of things under its umbrella.   Basically anything dealing with spirits, not of God.

But, I thought nothing of writing about Clutter Fairies.   I thought Fairies are cute little harmless spirits.   Wrong!    Any spirits that are not of God are evil.    So, I will be going back through my posts, and eliminating any mention of Fairies.   If I can’t rewrite the post, I will delete it.

I had already given up TV, because of all the sex, etc.    And that was hard for me.   But, I did it in order to be more Godly, and become closer to God the Father, and Jesus Christ, God’s Son, my Savior.    Nothing is worth keeping me away from them!    So, I’m doing my best to live a more holy life.

This also applies to “fortune” cookies.    My whole life, I’ve thought nothing of reading my fortune cookie, even though I’d never be caught dead at a fortune teller’s.    But, the Holy Spirit spoke to me, (not in an audible voice, but in my spirit) and said the fortune cookie was the exact same thing.   WOW!!    That was a game changer for me.    Now, I’m trying to filter EVERYTHING I say and do through the lens of the Bible.   If the Bible says not to do it, I’m gonna stop, so help me God.

So, I will be doing things differently from now on.    I truly desire to become holy, even as God is holy.    Because I’m human, I won’t ever achieve 100% sinlessness, but I’m working on it, by letting God control me, not myself.

  1. I commend you on living out your values, but I also will remind you that God and Jesus speak a lot about Grace as well. Don’t be harder on yourself than God is. My church reminds us that God is about love, not laws. Just don’t want you to lose sight of that. But again, I commend you on really diving deep in living your values! That is not easy.

  3. Melinda, I applaud you too because for one thing you have the courage to go through your heart and find out things that might not be pleasing to God and second, because you had the guts to put it out for the world to read.
    The Lent season is a wonderful time for spring cleaning and giving up things. So though I am not sure about Fairies and Fortune cookies, I am with you on your personal journey to cleanliness.
    I think now, that your blog is a metaphorical blog- you say, you want to clean out your physical world but actually you want to clean out your soul.
    Great going, Melinda. Wish I had your guts.

  4. Wow, Melinda! I have so much respect for your commitment to your values and beliefs. This is certainly not an easy thing to do. There are so any little things that we take for granted. Fortune cookies? Who’d thunk???
