WEB Notes: Should your personal comments outside of your work environment count against you? Of course not. However, they do today. This is a continuing trend and interesting timing considering a discussion I just had with a friend. Christ told us…
19 “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
When we go against the world and what is commonly accepted today, we are reviled for it. Speak against any mainstream idea and your are considered the bad guy. Whatever is commonly accepted is “fact” in the mind of the world.
20 “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.”
They crucified our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for what He taught. So of course the world will revile you for your beliefs. As the days march on and continue to darken you really need to remember this. Know when and where to speak and know when and where not too.
21 “But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.”
The world hates you because you believe in Jesus Christ and stand for His Word, the Bible. But count yourself blessed because of this (Matthew 5:10).
22 “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.”
Since Christ came to earth in the flesh and allowed Himself to be crucified for our sins, it provided a way for Redemption. Redemption for those who accept Jesus Christ and due to that, those who do not repent of their sins and turn to our Father will find themselves in deep trouble come Judgement Day.
The New Jersey Department of Education has suspended the teaching certificates of a former high school teacher who came under fire seven years ago for speaking against the sin of homosexuality on Facebook.
As previously reported, Jenye “Viki” Knox, 56, first came under fire in June 2011 after she posted comments on Facebook decrying the promotion of the homosexual lifestyle Union High School.
The school had reportedly erected a display in acknowledgment of “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Month,” which featured popular homosexual celebrities.
“It’s still there,” she vented on her personal Facebook page. “I’m pitching a fit.”
The status then began to spark discussion, which turned into a controversy when others were offended by her comments.
