Wither you are a new Christian or been around for years to the beliefs of all Christians, you know that the single most important thing to learn about it, is the Bible. It doesn’t really matter if you read NIV, KJV, NKJV or the many others. You know what the word SIN means, and about Heaven and Hell and everything in between, and yes even myself. Thats what started this blog….why is it as Christians we set the worst example???
I have found some of the biggest hypocrites in today’s society when it comes to Christians, saying we should come to the modern age…..ahhhhh hold on a moment???? Everything in the Bible that teaches about how we should act, what we should do, how we should do things, and learn more about Jesus doesn’t change just because we now can type on our Ipads and talk into our cell phones like their human…what happened here?
Personally I think the Devil’s got ahold of the Christian people. Since when was SIN better than another?? I hear women/men saying they would never cheat on their spouse but bad mouth their mother in law. They sit in church and then drink and go home and make their families afraid of them with their unkind words and actions. Their addicted to porn, lust and all that but then turn around and say if someone looked at my daughter like that…ahhh hello that is someones daughter. The Devil has us believing that its ok to bend the rules for modern society and that is the worst thinking of any Christian. I have read that sex outside of marriage is a no-no but then that didn’t work out and I used the excuse that the pressure around me got to me….WOW I must not have much control to let a few high schoolers of my day persuade me to something against my own values?
A SIN IS A SIN, if you rob a bank or gossip about your boss it doesn’t matter. IN my personal life I go to church on Sunday and scream at my child on Monday….I don’t do all things in love, I am not a very forgiving person, but hey I have the bumper sticker….wooohooo I am forgiven for acting like an ass…RIGHT?
What it really means is that me and MANY MANY other Christians abuse the system. If it’s truly a mistake ok its forgiven, yes we are human it will happen. BUT like my mom told me…anything done the first time can be considered a mistake but doing it anytime after that is a choice…so Whats your choice as a Christian? To continue your life going to church and “Acting” or making a difference? Even if it’s just to you family at home? People think they have to do these huge massive things to make a difference being a Christian but sometimes God’s only calling maybe for you to raise up Christian Children, or bring families (like your own) back together.
We as Christians have to rise above this world….we are not of this we live in this world!!!! Divorce, families, education, violence and the DEVIL are all running amuck because we are afraid people might think we are Bible pushers or different…WE ARE!!!!!!!!! Since when did we become afraid of giving people a reason to walk the Earth? Since when was it wrong to try to save your friends and family? Would it be a shame if we believed in marriage and family?
We have to remember our calling is a higher God and not of the bosses, car that cut us off, the significant other we cursed out, that guy that is just a jerk, the boss you talk crap about but are nice to his face, we are whats wrong with Christians. Only about a quarter of all Christians that claim to be Christians actually act like one…and if you’re using the excuse you are forgiven, you are correct BUT just like every good Father you will get punished for making the same bad decision over and over again. That’s His job, He love us and always will. This world will fade but God never will…isn’t that what you learned so why are we so afraid to scream out His name and be PROUD to be Christian?
So here is the true question…. are you only a “good time” Christian or are you a “die-hard”???…if you hide behind your cross necklace and bumper sticker as you yell at your wife and kids and say they deserve it….you may need to think again. If you are always bragging, gossiping, having sex and not married, telling lies, stealing, and not bringing your family the good news….then your not a die-hard and I know for myself I want to be a “die-hard” not a “good time” Christian, I don’t want to just look like a Christian I want to be a Christian and I DON”T CARE WHO IT OFFENDS I SAY GOD BLESS AND I’LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU!
Many times we think killers, thieves, gangs, porn, and other violent/lustful/wrong things are the worst things out there, BUT I think that a Christian who doesn’t live what s/he preachers or who lives in the selfishness that s/he is all forgiven so oh well, is WORST!!!!
This post may seem harsh but the truth is I just want us as Christians to be the messagengers they should be, I am speaking to myself also. I am not being harsh or cruel it’s just the truth and I for one want Christians to be the Love, Happiness, Peach, Kindness, Truth, Educated, wonderful people of the world but we need a wake up call! God Will give us all the blessings so why are we looking to this world for something only God can give us?
