Stamp-I'd Rather Be Hated by Jazzy-C-Oaks Stamp-I'd Rather Be Hated by Jazzy-C-Oaks
"I'd rather be hated by the world for loving God than be loved by the world and shunning God."

My sixteenth stamp, made by customizing a stamp template via Adobe Photoshop. (Image used in stamp found over the internet.)

(Created on 8-26-2011.)


It is not uncommon for others to desire acceptance. Many fear rejection. But what good will it be to gain acceptance by compromising your faith? Love should never be at the cost of your faith in God/Jesus.

God's love is eternal. He already knew you even before you were born. He loved you so much that He sent His Son Jesus to rescue you from eternity in hell in which we deserve for our sins. He did that for you. Future eternity in Heaven with God will be worth so much more than anything we can gain in the world today. So is it worth it to deny your faith before others?

"What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26)

It is guaranteed that not everyone will be accepting of believers. It's not easy to deal with, especially to experience having friends and loved ones even reject you. But if you were ever put in a situation in which the world is against you, who would you choose to side with? The world or God? Where does your allegiance lie? When it all comes down to a great big shaking in our comfort zone, where will we turn to?

I agree with this.


This summer, at Church camp, I was saved. There were hundreds of teenagers in the room, and I felt God working in that room for 7 days straight. 7 days, nights and mornings, while me and my friends were at that camp.

On the last night, I got saved. And I broke down into tears, because I didn't deserve God's love. I didn't deserve anything that He did for me. And yet He saved me that very night. I was sobbing as our Church's chaperone beckoned me over and pulled me into a hug. I was then saved, and now, I feel new. I feel so, so good. Not exactly mentally or physically, but spiritually. That night, I felt like I could've sprouted wings and flown away.

To those who haven't found Christ--listen, please. Please.

No matter what sins you've done, no matter the thoughts you've had or the words you've spoken--God will always love you. He will change your life. He will make it better, and you will never, ever be truly alone. God is the best friend anyone could ever have. He's the best parent. He is my Father. And I will stand by Him and for Him through thick and thin.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for us. Us lowly, evil, twisted, sinners. He died so that we would have a chance to be forgiven for our sins, and so that we wouldn't all burn in hell. God can forgive you for anything. Yes, He is that powerful, that loving.

God loves you, He loves me, and He loves everyone. Even if they don't believe in Him, He will still, always and forever, love them.

I have felt God. I have seen Him work. I have seen Him do what we think is impossible. God's love has no bounds.

Jesus Christ gave us this chance--to be saved and to walk with God, and to have eternal life with The Father.

Take the chance, guys. God is for us, with us, and by us.

Err, real life/world for me, please. As others have said, I can at least be sure it exists and life a happy life.

Yeah I don't care much about people's opinions anymore. Humans are always forcing me to respect their opinions even though they are wrong and hateful. God loves me no matter what. I don't have to be better than anyone else, prove anything to him or be from a certain race, gender or skin color for his love because being his child and spreading love and knowledge is enough. I've stopped caring about pleasing people long time ago, now I should just focus on God. :)

Ah; look at these atheists and non-believers.


If Jesus had mockery and people spit in his face, we are no different.


I don't care if such people try to degrade our religion. I will still believe.

You do understand that people don't spend millions of years burning in hell right? God loved everyone so much that he couldn't even do that to the worst people. Look here:www.creation-science-prophecy.… hell is not made for eternal torture but for the destruction of the wicked.

I don't like thinking about people going to hell. It saddens me. Even though I know, I still have sympathy TOWARDS the sinner. Not the sin.

its sad to think that so many will fall to corruption.

thats why i decided long ago that i would try to want for nothing in this life...
because this life is a temporary,but the next is eternity.

when the time comes,i want to stand before the great white thrown,knowing who my one and only God is.

theres no reason to use such a derogitory and spitefull term for gays...

homosexuals can and do turn from thier desires and sin,just as we can turn from ours.

even athiests can have revelation and receive salvation.

I have several Christian friends, and a God that loves me. That's all I'll ever need. I don't need the love of anyone else to be happy.

Why do you spend so much time attacking "Fags" on the internet and threatening gay people?

People who are gay deserve the same legal rights you and I do.

You don't see me pushing to take legal rights away from dumb homophobic Christians like you.

What you said, is of course, not offensive in the least.

The person I was talking to thinks that gay people should be punished for being gay. 

If you don't believe that yourself, great.

People who are gay can, of course be Christians.

Why do you thing that Gay people should have fewer rights than you, though?

When did I say they should have less rights than me? Everyone should be equal regardless of gender , sexuality, or race. Why are you saying lgbt Christians should be attacked for being Christian?

I see that you jumped into a discussion before understanding it.

The person I was talking to thinks that gay people should be punished for being gay.  If you don't believe that yourself, great.

At no point did I suggest rights should be taken away from Christians.  I said the opposite, I said it clearly, and I said it twice.  

For those of you who persist on saying"Fags"should be burned to death, or threatened, I will continue to call out your violence for what it is.

Ok then. I agree that radical Christians should be dealt with, but only them and not Christians who are open minded. It's not fair to attack people who did nothing wrong while real culprit is set free. This is the same in other spectrums.Do you agree?
