Abomination July 21, 2011

    I’ve often heard things like
“Yeah, he say’s he’s a Christian, but he drinks beer and cusses.”
How about instead,
“Yeah, he says he’s a Christian, but he doesn’t feed the hungry, or stand for equality.”

Or maybe,
“Yeah, he says he’s a pro-life Christian, but he doesn’t stand against the death penalty or torture.”

“Yeah, he says he’s a Christian, but he still thinks the church is a building, and on some level, grace has to be earned.”

I could do this all day, but the point is obvious:
The way religion has twisted the gospel is truly an abomination.

    Jesus, Peter & Paul all cussed at the appropriate times. 🙂

      Thanks Joe.
      Hey, you know people are going to ask for
      the scripture references on those, don’t you?!?!

        One other thing on the “cussing” issue (although that’s not really what the original post was centered on):
        Language doesn’t bother me. I mean, when every-other-word is a four-letter expletive, it gets annoying, but not inherently “wrong.”
        But for me, when saying “f**k” is considered worse by society than abusing the name of Jesus (as evidenced by our movie ratings), we have totally gotten off track. Yet this distinction is upheld not only by society in general, but by most evangelicals as well.

    Or how about “He says he’s a pastor, but he treats people abusively”…or “She says she’s a Christian, but she judges people so easily and harshly…”
