I saw a Facebook post today that said, I'd rather hang out with sinners than Christian Hypocrites and it made me think about what people are looking for in Religion. I wonder if those people that mock Christian Hypocrites have ever tried to live for Christ, because really we are just them...making an effort to do better, and sometimes we fail miserably...and then we try again. Does that make it wrong? I simply don't see it that way. I think it's sad that the world has resorted to cutting down those that are trying to make better lives for their families.
I wonder sometimes too, if some people are truly looking for Christ, or looking for a way to escape the penalty of sin. We all reap what we sew. Even us Hypocritical Christians. God sees our hearts and we do have to follow the same rules as everyone else.
I wonder sometimes if it's because we share truth. Yes, it's true, it is not always the most fun to hear, especially if you have to look in the mirror at yourself. I think that's why people point fingers all over, because "yes I have flaws, but look at yours" The other guys flaws are always worse aren't they? Just like the grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it? Those of us that fell for that once, are smiling and regretting, all at the same time, because we know better...now that is.
I know I won't stop you from cutting other people down, but what I do know is that hurtful words are not enough to keep me from moving forward. I've stood alone beside God many times. It's worth every teachable moment. My reward is your salvation. I think you're worth fighting for.
Thanks for having supper with me!
