I am baffled by a lot of things we allow to take root within us in the Christendom but what surprises me the most however, at least, at this time, is this picture they have about you as a Christian.
Many would want you to have a boring life as a believer of the gospel and living righteously but then Christ has not called us to suffer or play second fiddle to life's great opportunities and numerous blessings. As a matter of fact, He created them for us; The Saints.
The fact that I love God and do His will doesn't mean I can't have fun and enjoy life to its greatest, as long as I'm not indulging in things that would and could compromise my faith.
What's wrong with a brother hitting the beach and getting lost in the sand?
I love to swim but then I can't hit the pool for the fear of being castigated for exposing my body. I'll seduce the women and that's me leading them on, they will say. Really??
For Christ's sake, what's wrong with the world??
What breaks my heart the most is that the church actually plays the lead role conforming to this overzealousness that's fast tearing us apart. The walls that are supposed to be our shield from the outside world that is the kingdom of darkness, have become the very walls raised by hypocrites, Heaven sure needs a hug.
Don't do this, don't do that and they are the ones setting the pace.
Why do I feel betrayed by the very Word that's meant to give me life? Probably because it's coming from the lips of many that wish me dead, on the contrary.
Who called you? God?
And for those who are not ordained ministers of God, are you a true believer of the Word or just under His canopy to get what you can off Him before stepping out to the world where you think you truly belong??
So many questions come to mind and I really want to know... Are we preaching the Gospel right or just using God's words against Him so we can have our way??
Please tell me, what does it matter to love God and yet love the good life?? Aren't we called to replenish the world??
A pastor can't own a private jet but a con-artist can?
Why is the world so deluded?
The church needs help if we are to do the great work we've been commissioned for.
Rather than winning souls, we are going about destroying/discouraging the few that truly loves God and living each day, advancing the kingdom.
What you clothe yourself with, who you court, or where you decide to hang out and have some fun matter, modest dressings that speaks well of the Kingdom! Don't encourage nudity, be equally yoked and you have no business being in the counsel of fools, that's the standard my Bible gives me, not otherwise.
I can choose to swim in the hottest suit and dive as much as i wish when I'm at the pool, what matters is the motive!. I wouldn't step out topless or with crazy pants knowing fully well what my actions could birth.
We all know the truth but choose to hide behind the lies dished to us all in the pretence of being the true followers of Christ.
But as for me...
I refuse to be a Christian who knows the Word but refuse to adhere to it just to make others look bad.
We are not called to be judgemental. Let's stop pointing fingers and join hands. If we stick together, we can pray together. And when we pray together, we win together. God bless!
