I'm not mad

Do you support a man because he believes homosexuality to be a sin?
Or that abortion is murder?

Are you so weak that you cannot be happy for other people?
Are you a Machiavellian that justifies the death of innocents because we are all going to die anyway?
Why are you trying so hard to justify yourself?
It's not your fault that someone controlled your mind for eighteen years.
Are you aware that your mind is being controlled by the government and the media?
What do you think?
It's time to open your eyes
All you have to do is look for the truth
The journey begins today
Tell yourself that only truth matters and not what the answer actually is
Don't justify your current beliefs; challenge them
Don't be afraid to change
Change is a sign of growth
Why do we want to mature yet cling to thoughts and beliefs from the past?
Who are you trying to impress by clinging to everything you "know" today?
Me or some God?
I am irrelevant
God is everything
God knows what you believe and what you have done
I can't give you salvation
So why argue these things with me?
You may not even see me for the rest of your life
God will be with you for all of eternity
I can't save you
Yet you won't learn
Don't make me your God
