Let me start this off by saying I am tired of hearing the media and others scrutinize and crucify Chris Brown. It is as if everyone that has something to say about them has never made a mistake in their lives that they needed forgiveness for. As if they are all perfect and without sin. It makes me think of the people that wanted the adulterer stoned in the bible. Jesus simply said he who is without sin cast the first stone and one by one, they walked away until there was no one left but the woman and Jesus.
It is amazing that Yahweh is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and remember them no more. So if I was Chris Brown, I would start telling people I do not know what you are talking about. Truthfully, with a straight face Chris Brown can tell them he doesn’t know what they are talking about. When we go before Yahweh and we confess our sins, Yahweh forgives and forgets. So if you are still talking about what you did last year, years ago etc. that you repented for and turned your ways from, let me tell you that is the enemy or yourself that is reliving that. Yahweh doesn’t know what you are talking about because He forgot when He forgave.
Forgiveness is one of the hardest things it seems for people to do but it is what Yahweh expects of us. The servant asked Jesus how many times should he forgive his brother, 7 times, Jesus replied no seventy-seven times. You mean to tell me I have to forgive someone 77 times for the same thing they keep doing? Yes. Let’s take it one step farther, if you go before Yahweh in prayer and you have an issue with your brother, your prayers are not heard/answered!!!!!
Now back to Chris Brown and Rihanna. We have NEVER, NEVER EVER EVER, seen a mug shot of Chris Brown, why?????? Rihanna had bite marks on her. If a man beating up someone why would he have to bite her? Could it be that he was in a position where his only defense was to bite her?
Before you get outraged, no I do not believe that a man should hit a woman. I also do not believe that a woman should hit a man and then say he shouldn’t hit her back. I do believe that EVERYONE LET ME REPEAT EVERYONE has the RIGHT to defend themself if they feel threatened.
So what happened that day between Chris and Ri Ri, we will truly never know because we were not there. Yes we have pictures of a bruised Ri Ri with a swollen eye. Again I ask, why don’t we have any pictures of Chris Brown? We as consumers always have to ask questions and dig deeper. The media can feed us anything or say anything. Like they keep saying Bobby Brown showed up to Whitney’s funeral with an entourage, how about he has 5 kids and a mom. He showed up with his family. For the average person, you hear entourage, you think negatively, and you are actually letting the media think for you instead of thinking for yourself.
To end this I like the way Nikki Lynette put it in the RedEye today, “Have we considered for a moment that she is over it? And I know it pisses a lot of people off to think that she’d get past the violence…but guess what? You don’t get to decide how a person heals. You don’t get to dictate for Rihanna who she is allowed to forgive.” Rihanna doesn’t want to walk around with the stigma of a victim she has forgiven and forgotten and maybe the rest of the world should too!
Be a blessing and be blessed,
