Salvation does not originate with you, nor should it stop with you. It is a process that is initiated by our Heavenly Father and passes through you going on to a destination unknown. Unknown to us, but known to Him. Yet, most of the time we act as though we are the ones providing salvation, therefore we fail to extend to others the same grace that has been given to us. And the rest of the time, we simply bottle up that salvation like a damn, never allowing it to reach its next destination. #letitflow

|5 Myths People Spread About Jesus, Sex and Gay Marriage
"Jesus quoted the text of Genesis 2:24 as the foundation of His teaching on marriage. This is the biblical doctrine of “origins.” Jesus even used the clause “from the beginning it was not so” when talking about divorce....By affirming “what was from the beginning,” Jesus is defining marriage in God’s ideal terms! Jesus doesn’t have to disaffirm anything (which would be impossible since there are so many aberrations and the list just keeps growing). He only has to affirm one thing—and Jesus did that. So the idea that because Jesus didn’t mention homosexuality somehow means that it isn’t a point of human brokenness is a fallacy."
