lazy blogging er, I mean a Flashback Friday post.
Sometimes [as Christians] our stances on issues are stronger than the Bible’s stance on them.
Look at the comment section of any quasi-religious story or video and you are likely to find a Christian explaining why they are against whatever is being discussed and why it’s wrong in the eyes of God. It seems we mistake taking a stand for Jesus as synonymous with taking a stance against everything we personally don’t like or agree with.
It’s like we build these soapboxes of self-righteousness and then we climb on them with our bullhorns trying to win everyone else over to our point of view. Try asking someone you know who isn’t a Christian what it means to be a Christian. You might find that their answer has little or nothing to do with following Jesus, but they probably know what things Christians typically view as sinful.
In building our platform on what we are against we have often neglected to establish a foundation of what we are for.
