"Christians: The "softer, kinder, gentler" approach ain't working. One of the perpetual myths well-intentioned Christians indulge in is that if we are just nice enough, winsome enough and persuasive enough, everybody will love us and eventually agree with us. This is a pernicious and fatuous lie. It is a deception forged by the father of lies to induce Christians to be passive, meek and timid instead of bold clarions of truth and true justice"

"In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me" (Psalm 56:11).|
I have quite a history with Deviantart. I went from being a notable Tekken fan artist, to an outcast hated by the likes of ED, and several other arm pits of the internet. It all started when I confessed to the net that I struggled with homosexuality, and by the grace of God, I left those desires astray. To an unbelieving world, trusting in the Lord (Jesus Christ) to remove such desires is impossible, but with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE (Mark 10:27). Ever since my confession, I received numerous hate mail, constant jeers, and relentless spam throughout my front page.
Despite the annoyance of ridicule, frustration and inner anguish, I count it all as joy and rejoice evermore for my afflictions. I would rather have the world to hate me than to appease what this world loves. Overall, any type of persecution that comes my way is FINE because:
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us (Romans 5:1-5).
My duty now is to preach the gospel so that all may hear, and hopefully, come to the acceptance that Jesus is Lord..so that they may be saved from God's wrath. YES, I PREACH AGAINST HOMOSEXUALITY A LOT. So, please do not ask me to stop. Not gonna happen.
