Being a Rebel

4:44 PM

When you here the word rebel, what comes to mind? Maybe it's a teenager who is covered in tattoos, with blue hair (and yellow highlights). Maybe it's an army of gray in 1863. I don't know what your definition is. Maybe you believe that there are different kind of rebels; that's what I think .

I divide rebels into two groups: Good rebels, and Bad rebels. Simple enough, right? What makes them different? What do the good rebels do that make them good? Well, good rebels rebel against things like a corrupt government, or lies. Bad rebels rebel against things that are pure, and true. So it can be good to be a rebel.

You could say that Christians are good rebels, because we rebel against the world. To put it simply, I'll quote Do Hard Things-- "...teens [rebelling] against the low expectations of the world." That is an example of what I'm talking about.

Why am I talking about rebels? To straighten out my thoughts--I guess. See, there's this story in the back of my mind and the plot involves revolves around rebels. So I'm trying to learn a little about rebels. And I have. So thanks for putting up with me. What you do think about rebels? Do you think that my "Good rebel, Bad rebel" theory is bad? Let me know your thoughts.

  1. I totally agree with you, Emily! A good rebel is someone who isn't afraid to stand up against the majority for what they believe in. A bad rebel is just someone who is trying to be contrary and shock others.


Thanks for taking the time to comment--I read each one :)
