There’s been a lot of talk about #Forgiveness in the African American community.

Many are calling it “conditioning” by our society, and something that should come to an end.

I hope these opinions don’t become a reality.

#AmberGuygerSentencing

If the actions of #BothamJean’s brother, the black officer, and the black judge, were somehow a form of “conditioning”— I wish all of us were conditioned to do the same.

#Forgiveness
#Forgiveness is not a shameful thing.

In fact, it’s something I’ve always admired about the African American community.

It’s just a shame that it’s always your community who’s put in the position of needing to forgive.

Ok. So. All kinds of feels here. And three critical thoughts. 1/ #BothamShemJean #Forgiveness #JusticeForBotham #grief
First, #Feels:
Not again!!! Not again, Lord!!! Not again does the system get to minimize Black life by giving a white murderer such s light sentence!!! Not again do we have to endure tragedy of Black forgiveness!!!!! I can barely take it anymore, Lord! #JusticeForBothamJean 2/
Thought 1: If you were silent when #BothamShemJean was shot dead while eating ice cream on his couch then YOU DONT GET TO SPEAK NOW. #Shutupaboutforgiveness Your voice is a #clangingsymbol #standdown. You forfeited the right to speak now when you chose silence then. 3/

The reason why people can’t understand Botham Jeans younger brother, Brandt, choosing to forgive Amber Guyger is because they have no sense of their own sinful nature.

They don’t know what it’s like to be forgiven of their own trespasses on grace alone.
#Forgiveness
People tend to view themselves as good people by default. This makes it easier to condemn others for their wrongdoings while ignoring their own.

Christianity teaches that you are sick and in need of a physician and that your only hope of getting better is in Christ alone.
Brandt understood this. He recognized that he is no less a sinner than the murderer of his older brother. They are in the same boat, so even though he had a right to condemn her, he didn’t.

Let me tweet this again bc people are missing a few things when it comes to #BothamJean's family and this forgiveness.

~ Forgiveness does not mean Botham's mother doesn't believe #AmberGuyger's sentence shouldn't have been longer.

#AmberGuygerTrial #AmberGuygerSentencing 1/3
~ For some folks, forgiveness is done FOR YOUR OWN SAKE. It has NOTHING to do with the person and what they did.

~ Forgiveness and Accountability are not mutually exclusive

~ Mama #BothamJean ain't told nobody to do what she's chosen to do

~ FORGIVENESS IS NOT ABSOLUTION

2/3
~ #BothamJean's mother understands all of this about forgiveness because she walked out of that courtroom, stepped her forgiving soul to the mic AND DRAGGGGGGED THE DALLAS PD FOR CORRUPTION.

Yall HAVE GOT to get to a place where you can hold more complex thought. Jesus! 3/3

IMPORTANT TERMS TO
UNDERSTAND #ISLAM

Knowing 4 Arabic Words
May save our Civilization
goo.gl/7dxRLH

4 Key Words with summary Images below (see thread below)
#Takiyya allows and encourages #Muslims to deceive #Infidels for the advancement of #Islam. It is important when learning these Arabic Words to view them through the lens of theology.

How will you help God? Apparently not by virtue, but by the ends justifying the means.
You cannot understand this stuff without taking into account the pillars of faith. People jump all around this sensitive subject, because #Tawriya is ESSENTIAL to #Jihad => a PILLAR of the faith.

It would be like trying to explain #Christianity without #Forgiveness.

<> FORGIVENESS <>

An integral part of the human condition, one we are encouraged to embrace at almost every turn in life, no matter how horrible the offense.

Well, what is the real “deal” w forgiveness?
“Tears flow, hugs proliferate, and the inevitable psychological experts solemnly intone that traditional psychotherapy has neglected this essential element of cure and that studies show that forgiving alleviates depression and enhances self-esteem.”
