Clearing the air on Christianity (or at least mine).

God does not hate you. God does not spite you.

He is good. He is merciful. He is a friend.

 

As a Christian,

I am sick and tired of the following:

Christians that are:

 

Judgemental

Angry

Stubborn

Unforgiving

“Better”

Condensending

Unaccepting

And unwilling to love

 

I am tired of defending Christianity.

I am tired of people portraying Christ wrongly.

I am tired of a good thing misrepresented.

 

So…to clear the air:

God is merciful.

He is loving.

He is just.

He is compassionate.

And He calls us friend.


Christians, act like your Christ. Do the same. Love unconditionally. And clear the air. 

(and for those who already do, thanks)

    Hi Kate! Good topic. My thought- It’s against human nature to love others before self… christians have to fight this daily battle. I fail in giving up my selfish way for His loving way hundreds of times each day. Without His strength… remaining in Him… being connected to the life giving vine (John 15,) is impossible.
    Makes me ask myself what this means for me then. How many times each day will I be aware of a decision that I am making, however haphazardly, and take a moment to seek what God wants me to do in that decision? Will I be willing to yield my way if God shows me that His way requires a sacrifice of some sort on my part? I know I won’t if I do not “remain” in Him. He promises that if we remain in His love, we will be filled with joy! If we love others based on what we think and feel and on what our circumstances are… we’ll miss the mark. We can pray for those christians who seem so unloving… that God will help them to remain in Him. Ha! But first I’d better pray that God helps me to love with His love. Sigh.

    good for you. I really like the way you state your mind with a simple truth. I agree completely and this is why I have so many issues with RELIGION as a whole. Not a problem with the beliefs but with the people who can hold to them. So thankyou. You posted a simple truth and held to a simple belief. That rocks and so does you god. 😉

    Amen. Amen. Amen. I’ve been on this topic lately myself.
    Many Christians have lost their tact; their grace; their love; their focus.
    Christ is the focus, and we are to be like Him.

    “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
    ~ I John 4:8, 16
