UnChristian?

Due to the book UnChristian there have been many conversations taking place.  Here is my two cents and another link that hits on it.

My comment:

I see people playing games in the church constantly. It’s political. That is not how Christ is, was or acted ever. If he had, he would have come down from heaven and said “I’m the King” and zapped everyone and proved it. We can’t pay Him or God off for anything.

We are unChristian when we don’t live like Christ. Very profound, huh? We are unChristian when we do things that Christ would never do even if we claim we have surrendered our lives to Him. We are unChristian everytime we sin even if we have accepted Christ as our Savior.

Therein lies the problem. Sin, even as believers there is sin. Somehow, some people have bought into the idea that if they become Christians they are righteous and act as though they are no longer sinners. WRONG…Do we really have to take out the big screens and show everyone’s daily life or life behind the scenes to prove this.

As Christians we must understand that this pursuit to be like Christ doesn’t give us the right to condemn others. Jesus didn’t condemn. Why do we think we have the right to do so?

We must love people and keep on forgiving like Jesus did. No other options. Sorry.

  1. This issue has me captured right now. Just how rampant is it? What are it’s affects? Am I guilty?

  2. Well,Eric I heard someone say that God doesn’t take away our propensity to sin, He just gives us the ability not to. I’m not sure that works out in every day living. Another thing I heard was, “you can’t stop the birds from flying over your head but you don’t have to let them build a nest in your hair”. You’re correct in what you say though. Sin is a problem in everyones life . The difference between people who’ve surrendered their lives to Christ and those who haven’t is Christians are aware of their sin and ask for forgiveness and the others don’t give it a 2nd thought. Christians grieve when they sin because they’ve disappointed their Lord. But I guess the 7th and 8th chapters of Paul’s letter to the Church at Rome says it best. If you’re serious about the answer read those 2 chapters and see if it speaks to you. Mizpah
