Don't get me wrong ... I am a Christian. A Born Again, Holy Spirit Filled, Bible Believing Christian.
BUT, I am tired of the giant stupidity (including my own at times) that makes Christianity such fluff & stuff that we seem to find thrown out there in the Christian World on the net & the tv. Christians are suppose to be victorious, successful, competent, blessed to the max, completely happy, self sufficient, etc ... etc ... etc ...
Christians & christianity has become a melting pot of blasphemy & deception. To the max. I will say it now, & I will say it loud. Jesus Christ did not come to this earth to serve us. Jesus Christ did not die on the cross to make it a better place for christians. Knowing Jesus Christ does not make us better than anyone else. Period.
If you are a Believer it is not an instant ticket to wealth, fame, all your prayers answered the way you want them, all your problems solved immediately, etc ... etc ... etc ...
I use all the etc ... just because it irks me to have to put into words exactly what is being preached & swallowed by so many Christians.
I DO believe, we as Christians SHOULD read our Bibles more. We should prayer. We should get in touch with the Spirit of God with us ... etc ... etc ... etc ...
Then our claims would be completely different. It would not be centered around me, myself, & I. It would be centered & focused on the reality of the truth we can live day by day knowing that we are walking a Christian path that many have walked before, & many will walk hereafter. A path that is not full of self glory - but the humble Glory of God ever present in unseen ways. A path that can be full of pain, rejection, & unknowingness.
Have mercy Lord will be on our lips & our hearts will be full of humble gratitude daily, through it ALL.
"And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful."
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”
