It's not always what it seems.

Last night Steve and i started to watch the movie Beta House, which is one from the American Pie series. Essentially, the movie is about college and about Greek life (sororities and fraternities). Well, we only made it through about half of this movie because, frankly, it disgusted me but it really made me think. Obviously, this movie was a horrible portrayal of college life. I think a lot of people come into college with the mindset of its just all about the party; drinking, smoking, sex, etc. In reality, if you're there for just that you're probably not going to make it past your first semester. Yeah, partying is usually a part of your college "experience" but that isn't the focus. College, as my AgEcon professor states, "...Should be about growth. If you aren't here to change and grow, you're just wasting your time and money." It relates to your life in general actually. Life is about change, about experiencing things and growing as a person. This means you're going to be tested, and tested often. I know I have already been tested quite a bit this semester. I must admit, I don't think I've really passed everything with flying colors. Just this weekend, one of Steve's roomies was being a royal jerk and said a whole load of stuff that was past inappropriate. He really crossed the line with me and i must say I haven't been that angry in a while. So, that night, i went to bed angry. I woke up angry, and have been pretty much holding a grudge since. I know that isn't what God wants me to do. Instead I should be praying for this man. I may not like him and I definitely don't agree with him but I know that I am suppose to love him regardless because we are all God's children. Also, I know this is a test for my relationship with Steve. Not everyone is going to accept us because I know some of his friends just plain don't like me. That's fine, but we can't let that affect our relationship. Steve and I are stronger than we've ever been and I plan to keep it that way, regardless of outside influences. I know God has a lot in store for us so instead of letting trash talkers get to me, to us, we need to pray and continually forgive. Life, relationships, experiences, aren't always what you think they're going to be. God has a plan and usually it's something very different from what you had in mind. When God moves, you move. I surrender everything to Him knowing that in the end, God is in control and will continue to bless me and my relationship.

so, i'm a christian too and i really think that hypocritical people like you are the reason so many people hate christians. You can't talk the way you do and then turn around and have threesomes with guys and live and have sex with another. good job...

and i bet you have done much worse things than the things in beta house. at least that was a funny movie. you're just gross. AND you know NOTHING about being in a fraternity or sorority so don't run you're mouth like a pompous little brat.

dear christian-sorority-girl:
I know i am not a saint but NEVER in my life have i had a threesome. I am not a hypocrite. I am a woman with a new found faith and a new found love. Yes, i have done some pretty awful things in my past but that is before i found the Lord and the great thing is that he sent his son to die on the cross for our sins. My sins are forgiven and i am working my hardest to please and glorify God. Also, this blog represents my opinions and will not reflect the opinions of everyone. So, honestly, if ytou really dislike me, why are you reading this?
