In this two-part blog series, I will be attacking two very controversial issues. Cheerleading is a sport. A debate about this fact has been going on for quite a while now. I have decided to officially come out with my opinion on the matter. Here are 5 reasons why I consider cheerleading a sport:
Words are powerful. There is no doubt about it.
I think people are not paying enough attention to their words. It is as though most of the population is unable to form a sentence, thought, or idea without using profanity to some extent. How depressing is that?! Expressions or acronyms (like af, lmfao, omfg, tf, wtf, etc) are so ingrained in our society that I don’t think people even realize that they are cursing when they use them. In fact, most people don’t even consider words like “hell” or “ass” to be curse words…which they are. What is even sadder is that Christians seem just a prone to this as others. Too many of my Christian friends use profanity, or at least don’t see the problem with it. People have forgotten the power and impact of what they say.

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
No one is perfect. We have all sinned and will sin over and over again. Every sin is equal in God’s eyes, giving no human the right to claim judgment over another. We can’t play the ‘blame game’ because we all will lose. Messing up and making mistakes are what make us human, so we cannot achieve perfection on our own.
However, God loves us despite our sins and He calls us to love others in the same way. It is so hard to look past a person’s flaws, yet God does it all day every day because He loves us so much. He loves us enough to give us free will, so we can make our own decisions and not be walking around like Christian robots. He allows us to have thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and all the things that make us unique people. Most importantly, God loves us enough to send His only son, a perfect son, to die for our sins. He willingly watched His son die an excruciating death just so a bunch of imperfect, rebellious people can live with Him forever. God knew we cannot be perfect on our own, so He sent Jesus so that we could appear blameless in front of Him. That is a love like no other. God’s love is endless and unconditional. No person is too good or too bad for His love. Not only that, but He loves all people equally (Christians, Muslims, girls, homosexuals, boys, Jews, tall people, poor people, depressed people, etc). Every single person does not deserve this perfect love, but we all have received it because we serve a perfect God.
So I would argue that love already won, thousands of years ago, when God created us out of love and then again when Jesus Christ died on a cross to save us ALL because we all desperately need saving. So friends, remember that love won before, and God’s perfect love will always win in the future.
More and more people are going vegetarian and vegan these days for health or moral reasons. There has always been a group of people doing this, including those doing it for religious reasons, but it seems to be very “in” nowadays. As the budding young woman who I am, I decided to give vegetarianism a try.Read More »
I would like to take this moment to ask everyone, particularly the generations above mine, to CHILL about social media and smart phones and how they are ruining our generation. I am here to tell you that we may actually be better at conversation, happier, and less socially awkward because of today’s technology.Read More »
Recently an article has circulated around Facebook (well my Facebook at least) all about bikinis and modesty. I really enjoyed the article and it resonated with me. However, people, even Christians, have come out against it with the argument of confidence vs. self-consciousness.Read More »
After a few months of internal battles about whether or not I could be a blogger, I decided to create my very own blog. Like many of you, I have lots of thoughts and I think the world (or the 5 people who will ever read this blog) should know them. Plus, hopefully I will rant a little less to my friends and family now that I have a new venue to gab about whatever I want. Read More »
