What Would Jesus Say to Leelah Alcorn?

In my last blog, I wrote a response to a Christian Blogger who had posted a public response to my thoughts about Leelah Alcorn. This morning, I just wanted to add one quick thought.

What Would Jesus Say To Someone Like Leelah Alcorn?

Pastor Kell said it best.
Jesus would say every life matters. He would say,


We get so distracted by religion and judgement, we stop showing our love. It’s dangerous and deadly. And I can’t help but notice how the devil sure does look a lot like people.

  1. 2 Timothy 3:12
    All those desiring to live with godly devotion in association with Christ Jesus will also be persecuted.

    I’ve always been curious as to why those who judge and persecute others the most are the same as those who call themselves Christian. I had lost my faith long ago and anytime I considered looking for it, those same Christians deterred me from it. Why? They did not know God. They are the pretenders that hide in the showdows and attempt to drag you into the shadows with them under false pretenses that the shadows are the light. I do not call myself Christian.

    2 Corinthians 11:14-15 “Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. His servants disguise themselves as servants of righteousnees.”

    They cannot know love if they do not know God. Saul thought he was doing God’s work until tragedy stuck leaving him broken and it was by the Grace of God that he was saved and became Paul. I would think, by reading the Christian blogger’s words, that he has not yet been broken beyond repair and subsequently Saved by God’s Grace. I no longer know hate. I have plenty of reason to hate, I have hated, yet something happened to me, God’s Grace saved me and all the hate washed away.

    Proverbs 10:32
    Righteous people know the kind thing to say, but the wicked are always saying things that hurt.

    No one who walks in the light would ever use God’s words to judge or condemn or belittle anyone. To do so is abusive and thos who do are abusers. No one should ever have to tolerate any type of abuse from anyone, and shame on him for carrying out his abusive methods in the name of the Lord. We must never be silent when we witness abuse. We must always choose a side. Remaining silent help the abuser. It’s the same as taking the side of the abuser. Thank you for standing up to him and fighting back. It keeps my bucket of hope full to see others retaining their power.
