Hi All,

Feeling the need to vent.  I am dismayed, annoyed and in wonder all at the same time.

If my thinking is incorrect, feel free to correct me, Christians are so labeled due to the desire to be “Christ-like”, to live in His image, follow His ways right?  I have been a follower of Jesus since the age of 16.  41 years of drawing my life closer to Christ, His ways, His loves, His desires.  In all of those years of study and drawing nearer to the Savior, I found a Lord who loves unconditionally; who never once in all of my reading and study turned someone away due to a “flaw”, act, condition, predisposition, ailment, hair color, etc….  Then please tell me, dear reader, why Christians in the name of Christ turn others away?

If we are Christians, how can we tell someone that they are not fit to be a part of us?  How?  How can we possibly do that?  Where in the Bible did Jesus/God give us a loop hole for acceptance?

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

I hurt for those we hurt in the name of Christ,

  1. Amen ! Amen ! Amen! I am so sad to see Christians align themselves with bigotry, arrogance, and rejection of others. Sad. Sad. Sad.

  2. wow! praying for calmness in this storm! HUGE difference between sins and human attitude….HUGE difference. Praying that Christians will understand the difference? The Bible is CLEAR on what the good Lord will tolerate when breaking his rules, his commands. He also is very clear on how we ( Christians) are to have our attitudes that are in sync with his. Human attitudes can be destructive. praying
