During a conversation, someone tried to highlight a problem Of Christians when it comes to accepting unusual characters.
It was claimed that Jesus had an open door policy and took everyone on – no matter what package they came in.
This is an incomplete way to look at Jesus.
“You need to have multiple streams of income because you don’t know what might happen tomorrow”
This was coming straight from the pulpit. So, we had to take it, not leave it.
Sadly, it’s talk like this that invented a new species of Christians – The Time-Bubble Christian.
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing in having multiple streams of income.
But there is something wrong when the only motivation for that is our fear of the future.
Anybody else wonders what happened to the dinosaurs? 🦕 🦖
Depending on which side of the line you stand – it could be anything from meteors, evolution or someone flushing them down the toilet.
I find it amusing when I listen to Christians trying to force the dinosaurs on the Bible.
In trying to explain how the dinos got here, they evolve their origins using the 7-day creation account.
I will not bore you with the details – you can probably google it if you want the inside scope of that.
So what’s my take on it?
Someone took me up on my offer for a one-on-one conversation this week.
He is not a Christian but now and again would respond to some of my posts to complain about problems he saw.
They were not problems with what I posted but with bigger life-sized problems.
He starts by letting me know that we Africans hide behind religion and refuse to face our problems.
He goes further to write “every time I read your posts, I only see another prosperity pastor and God of men loading.”
Discussing further, I discovered what the real problem is. He had a problem with the hypocrisy of some Christian leaders who take advantage of others.
My response was simple.
Is there really a reality of eternity through Jesus that you have been promised?
Is Christianity not just like any other faith in the world?
Do you sometimes wonder if as a Christian, you might be on the wrong side of the bridge?
I saw two posts by Christians which questioned the exclusivity of Christianity to the answers about eternity and life on this side of heaven.
They raise doubts.
I like doubts.
What I don’t like is the treatment of doubts.
