Post Mortem

The Christians as I observed ...

 It’s true I am proud to be a Christian, represent Jesus Christ and proclaim the Gospel that has forever transposed my life. But while I am all for Christianity and the progression of the gospel, I can honestly say that the way some Christians act breaks my heart. It’s something that keeps me up at night. This is my everyday struggle____

I am not really sure what it’s derived from. Maybe it’s the ‘’God hates fags’’. Picket signs being somehow justified by inter predation of biblical text,or the extreme judgement that comes from most self-proclaimed cross bearers when someone in the public eye fails. Regardless, I have a really hard times liking some fellow Christian. I sometimes wonders ‘’ God..!!! why do you allow these people to represent you ?? 

I often wonder why Pastors/priest choose to bash the failure of public figures and use them as examples for sermon illustrations, or why Christian bloggers think it’s OK- to spew personalised hatred towards someone for sake of CLICKS. or better yet, why some churches find themselves bashing one another all because “they are just not like us”. I understand we’re all entitled to an opinion, but that doesn’t mean our opinions have to be shared with cruelty and rashness. 

It can all be done in love and sincerity. And while i understood that not all Christians have chosen to act this way, there is a great percentage of them that do. It’s disheartening. It’s a tiny flame that spreads like a wildfire. 

 Don’t like the way “that church” worship??? That’s fine,but don’t be cruel and think your church is better because of it. 

 Your congregation prefers exegetical teaching as opposed to topical? ??? Wonderful!!!! but keep your judgement aside when noticing a church who does things differently. They are reaching a different crowd .

 Have you choosen a life that does not include the consumption of Alcohol and Drugs ??? That’s very honourable of you, but don’t be arrogant enough to proclaimed that some one who drinks or takes drugs is going to Hell.

 Don’t like tattoos? ?? More power to you,but don’t you have your finger at someone and tell them that they are an abomination to God because of their decision to ink their skin.

 Have you choose to abstain from medical prescription? ?? That’s your decision,but keep your judgement of one’s true faith,if someone who is suffering from depression or sickness decide to seek medication from a licenced psychiatrist. 

 Displeased with the failure /mistake of others?? You are allowed to be . But please don’t take to social media and display your judgement and distaste as if you and I are any better. Every body make mistakes. That’s whyJesus died on the cross for all of us. 

Whenever I open my Bible, the concept of LOVE and GRACE is prevalent. But while I see these truth.....to be clear as the moon in a cloudless night sky. I guess some see otherwise. Once again I am a proud Christian but I cannot say I like the way all of them act. I would be the first to lay down my life for the one who died on the cross for me but that doesn’t mean I won’t be honest about my frustration towards some of Jesus personal advocates. It breaks my heart. It should not Break your too??? 

Our jop as a followers of Jesus Christ is to reflect an image of Love -the same love that Jesus showcased on a splintered plank of wood known as the cross. I am not ignorant enough to believe that Christians should be loved by all people. ...the Bible tell us this won’t be the case if we are truely living at our God given calling. Without love we are meaningless. Without love we are without Jesus. We must understood Gospel without love isn’t truely the Gospel at all. Jesus himself is the image we seek to reflect and our mission is to love . We as Christian must learn to exude a consequential image of God’s love through every facet of our lives . Love has the power to change the world .

“But love your enemies,do good to them,and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great ,and you will be sons of the most high, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked” Luke--6:35
