Christian vs Christian
As you sit in church next time, look around you. What are the people
like in your church? Are they loving? Do they look upon their
fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord with kindess?
I've noticed something about the Christian world today that I'd like
to address in this article. Christian's are NOT very receptive of
eachother. Some of the most rude people are unforcunately Christians!
I was so shocked as I grew that people who seem to love God so much, and
be so cold toward other believers.
You know why people are so bigoted against eachother? Do they
follow a different God? No, it's that there are belief differences
about whether or not someone is 'holy'! Isn't that amazing?
Let me tell you something now. Being a Christian is not how holy
someone is. If it where up to that, then we'd all burn in hell!
No lie. Jesus said,"For all have sinned and came short of the glory
of God." Even one little sin..even a small one..won't allow us to
go to heaven. It's a bummer that if I flick a booger on someones
windshielf, I would burn in hell! But if you think about it, why
would God let corruption into an uncorrupted place anyway? That would
be a real dumb idea, and God is far from being stupid.
So tell me, all you 'holier-than-you' Christians(NOTE:this does not
mean that all Christian's are 'holier-than-thou' Christians). If
even a little thing like a flicked booger can make someone burn in Hell,
then how do you think YOU'RE going to go to heaven? No amount of
'Hail Marys', confessing your sins to a preist, water baptisms, no matter
how much you go to church, how much you give, how nice you are. No
matter WHAT you do...you're still a sinner. That guy that cuts you
off when you're driving and you think something like,"why I outta _________"...well...that
would have condemned you to hell. So, what makes you so great?
Why are you exempt from heaven? One reason. Because Jesus died
on the cross for you, and accepting Him into your heart is the only way
to get into heaven. So get off your high-horse. No where in
the Bible does it say that people that where baggy pants are condemned
to Hell. No where does it say someone with long hair is condemned.
No where does it say that facial piercings are wrong..tatoos are wrong..goatees
are wrong. No where. So why does everyone have to look exactly
like you to get to heaven??
Also, music is a big bigotry these days that make teens want NOT to
be with God because they think that they have to be all listening to old
hymns to be Godly. No way! I know TONS of bands that you can
listen to, get fed, AND have a great time. Like rock? Try bands
like DC Talk, Newsboys, Bleach, Skillet, Jars of Clay...like metal?
Zao, Unashamed, Hearken, Necromanacide...I can go on forever about Christian
bands. But God does not condemn any style of music. "Let everyman
praise the Lord" "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord" Where does it
say,"So God sayeth, only play old hymns"? No no no no no...God enjoys
all music. No matter what. It is the condition of the heart
that matters, not the style of music. If Sacrificium(Christian deathmetal
band) got up on stage praising God in their hearts as they praised Him
in music...then that's great! Now is Cannible Corpse(worldly gore
deathmetal)got on stage and played..yuck! That is not praising the
Lord on bit. I know I make no sence...but I'm sure God will work
