What Kind Of Christian Are You?

I’m not judging. I’m not pointing a finger at anyone. I’m just simply asking a question… what kind of Christian are you?

Will the real Christian please stand up? Silence… maybe their sleeping?

I’m not going to get pats on the back with this post. But it’s not about getting pats on the back or approval… it’s about telling the truth.

As some of you know, I’m an open minded, free spirited and creative person.

However, this does not mean I subscribe to an “everything goes” philosophy.

What I mean is this… I’m not going to redefine God’s word to suit my own limited understanding.

Today I have been reading ecstatic comments on Facebook from “Christian’s” regarding today’s Supreme Court ruling.

Look… I’m not a gay hater, basher or otherwise.

If people choose to be in homosexual relationships, that is none of my business. I’m not going to go up to them with a sign and tell them their going to hell or anything like that.

But I am also not going to just accept any ole thing or compromise the Word of God.

I’m also not going to redefine it, interpret it, sugarcoat it, change it, minimize it or create my own laws to suit myself and subject everyone else to it either.

As Christ followers, either we believe in the Bible or we don’t. It’s that simple.

He left us a compass… but are we truly living it?

I’m not seeing a lot of “Christian’s” living it.  Unfortunately, the body of Christ is in a sad and embarrassing state.

We are powerless, compromising, selfish, sensual, self-seeking and hedonistic. Choosing to create a god of their own understanding by redefining Him, His Word, His institution of marriage and family.

Sadly, true Christianity has been made a mockery and Christians have become the laughing stock of society.

What kind of Christian are you?

Are you the kind that says everything goes? Are you the kind that says God didn’t really say what He means or means what He says? Are you the kind that redefines and interprets the Bible to tickle your fancy? Are you the kind that is afraid to live according to the Word and actually represent Christ and His power to this generation? Are you the kind that believes living according to the Bible is politically incorrect or archaic?

Or are you the kind who will pray, believe, stand up, live and be a true example of what it is to be a real Christian full of love and grace to this world? Instead of sitting in your pews, acting pious, compromising and going along with the masses?

So again, I ask, what kind of Christian are you?

    Love the sinner, hate the sin. That is what I believe. I hate the decision of the court, but not the people. The Bible has all the answers to all of our questions. I believe that is the only place to look. Thank you very much for your honest post. You gained a friend here!

    • I believe the same. Thank you for being courageous enough to comment. 🙂 I appreciate your stopping by and reading my post. I wrote it with all my heart. Thank you for being my new friend. God bless you.
