Apathy - the poison we love

here i go. apathy is the one thing i know of that will always compound on itself if never confronted. you start off by saying its not that big of a deal. than you do it again to prove to yourself that its not that big of a deal. after that you just do what you want cuase you know you can convince yourself that its ok. it works with anything - cheating, lying, stealing, being lazy, having sex, drinking, lookin at porn, anything. eventually, you start you realize that you don't care. and you don't care that you dont' care. our apathy almost become a warm blanket for us to hide in when things come our way.

i started to care. and i'm definately p.o.ed at the way my school is going and the choices so many people i know are making. and listen up now - these are all people who know exactly what they are doing. they know the consequences. they know it is wrong. and they think its funny. or they say they don't care because they like doing whatever it is. my Savior did not die on a cross so that you people could profane His Name by claiming His blessings and living like you hate Him. He did not give up His throne in heaven to come here so you could walk all over what He has done for you. to those you think there sin is funny - Jesus Christ suffered the worst imaginable torture and death ever for you. is that funny? does the image of a barely recognizable man, willingly hanging on a cross, knowing what you do - does that seem funny to you? to those who don't care - people just like you are burning in hell right now because they made the same choices. but you don't care if you break the hearts of your parents and your friends. you are having fun. i hope your fun stops satisfying you. because you are ruining my school.

this is my ultimatum - either start living as if you have been redeemed from hell by a Loving and All-Powerful God who can help you change anything, or stop calling yourself a Christian and get out of my school. i have watched and stood aside for too long now. i am not going to let my school be drug down like this, so help me God.

i wish i could scream this whole thing in homeroom...

yoshi, when i walked out of that highschool, i could sense a feeling of doing what is most fun in several students--and who cares about God? it saddens me too now that this is showing.

but, there is good news! looks at all the awesome students that are there also! they may not be able to understand and see things the way you do but you can talk to them and maybe together you can "advance the ball"! what we all need to work on together is loving "them" like Jesus. point them back to the light! if you can think of anything that i might be able to help with give me a call! i'll be praying for you guys.

live that message man, and they'll see. live it like there's no tomorrow, and they'll understand why you're different. it hurts man, it really stinkin hurts to watch your friends turn their backs on the truth. guess now you know why i got so frustrated a couple years ago. and to stand by and watch...to stand by and watch while your friends choose to keep walking down a path that is so wrong and they know it! but listen man, seriously, hang on real tight to your friends who are living for God. hold the friends close who are sincerely living their lives in order to please God. cause they're the ones you'll turn to when you're hurtin, and they're the ones who are gonna help you get back on track when you start to falter. i'm praying for you man, and as always, if you ever need anything, let me know.

i kinda went through the same thing a few years back with the kids at my church. they would say all these wonderful things on sunday morning and then go out the rest of the week and act like everyone else. they would do things they knew were wrong...and they really didn't care. i struggled with whether or not they were seriously Christians...maybe thats why i never go to my youth group anymore. it also didn't help when they started to act that way at church too. but anyways, you're not alone and i hope they come around soon. :)

Joe,
I wish I was there to help you get through this..:) But sometimes God will put trials in your life for his reasons. The people around you can help you grow and also bring you down. There are some wonderful people at Faith and some not so wonderful but find the ones you can trust. I'll be praying for you...

Angelina Jolie (you can call me angie)

p.s. - what's this about another girl in your life...:( I thought I was your only love... I guess I'll just have to live with Brad for a while.

I'm with you man. And it breaks my heart to see people living like that, thinking nothing's wrong. You have a new love, what? you're turning into what emily rausch used to be like, (only she's stuck now).
