A Reality Check

My how the world has its priorities all messed up? I’ve seen more outrage over a lion being killed on an African hunt over the last 24 hours then I would ever care to see. I’ve seen more outrage over the last several weeks regarding the confederate flag’s defense then I’ve ever thought possible in the twenty-first century. My how we have our priorities all screwed up. I have seen more Christians champion these two causes (and many others over the years) that have made my stomach churn and my head shake in astonishment. Logic, simple logic has gone out of the window in favor of a rationale that defies the very word itself.

Making Jesus Facepalm

Well, I figured it was time that I write another reaction article to a piece someone shared on Facebook. Now this certainly isn’t a unique post, an article like this one comes across my feed almost daily where people share an article that doesn’t deserve any attention and usually they deal with how Christians bully other people. Granted, some Christians could use a lesson in grace, and some could use a lesson in tact. In the article authored by Stephen Mattson titled, “6 Bad Habits Christians Should Drop” he gives a rather brief list of things he deems harmful to Christianity.

Racism, Evil, and Hope

Last Wednesday night as I sat in a pew in my own church, another church experienced something straight out of a horror film. If you live in America, you know what I am referencing. A young white man, whom I will not name, walked into a church that was predominately black and asked if he could speak with the pastor. He then proceeded to shoot and kill 9 people, including the pastor. Now, some are willing to make excuses for this young man stating mental illness, and instability or are diluted enough to believe that this entire scenario was not motivated by racism.

Jesus, True God True Man

Christians can be silly sometimes. There are times that it appears that we argue some of the most ridiculous things. Committees will be started to discuss and decide what kind of flower should be on the stage, what color a wall should be painted, and what carpet should be used. We don’t just argue over carpet and wall color though, we also argue about issues like; the wearing of a hat in church or whether a person can wear shorts on a stage. If this sounds remarkably petty to you, that’s because it is.
