A Violent Christ? Kung fu Jesus?
In order to fit their pre-existing political ideas and ideologies, many people try to create Jesus into their own image of a violent one. They point to pictures of Jesus driving out the money changers, telling disciples to get swords, and even him saying that he came to bring the sword. However, these violent messages simply disappear once critical thinking skills and context is looked at and applied. Jesus tells us to unconditionally love our enemies and to refrain from violence against them. He does not win victories by shedding the blood of his enemies, rather he shed his own blood for them.

This video talks about how it doesn't matter what we think about us or what others think about us. The one thing that matters is how God sees us. It is the devil that makes us hate ourselves You will never live up to the standard of others and especially your own standard. It is only the devil working trying to make us hate ourselves and blame God for our struggles. And
yes we can not please ourselves on our own. That is why Jesus died on the cross to take away our sin that we may hate ourselves over.

Everyone faces struggles in their life. Sometimes it's hard for us to see that God has a plan for us. We even question why he makes us go through all this suffering. When God makes us struggle we want the result right away. Mary Rose was diagnosed with Lyme Disease at a very young age. The doctor told them that thing will get worse before they get better. She already can’t walk and her heart is not functionally properly, and the only thing she think could be worse is death. The family member got upset with God, but eventually the realized that God loved Mary Rose way more than they do. Eventually Mary Rose was healed of Lyme Disease. They only way the got through that struggle was faith in God. After you really go through a struggle you really start to realize who much you can depend and rely on God.
