misconceptions Recently I have had heard many misconceptions about real Christianity. Someone recently made the claim to me that all Christians were racist and Christianity was responsible for apartheid and discrimination in the South because most of the supporters of it were Christian. What they forgot was so was Martin Luther King Jr. Another thing I heard is that God holds women in a lower respect than men. I wanted to list some verses that explicitly contradict those misconceptions. I know it can be hard and upsetting to the faith of some to hear such slander of their religion, but there is a winning argument to be found in the Bible. Just be careful to rebuke in gentleness and never let a disagreement cause you to abandon meekness and compassion you are called to demonstrate to all others. The Bible is, in my humble opinion, the greatest work of literature and the most touching love letter ever written. It is the word of God and therefore the final
Dark MindsI keep finding myself returning to that dark unholy place
It contains every single memory I tried so hard to erase
A place where I face the demons I still harbor inside
Where I completely broke down and was stripped of my Pride

shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.

I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
