What kind of Christian are you (if you claim to be one)?

Ellroon @ Rants from the Rookery:

Look carefully at what you have become. You are endangering the life of a 12 year old boy.

You say you are good Christians? What Christian would support and encourage torture? What Christian celebrates war? Mocks injured children, soldiers and worse yet, belittles the wounded? What Christian declares intolerance to other beliefs a Christian ideal? What Bible are you reading from? This is not the Christianity I recognize.

And what kind of patriot are you?

You say you are patriots? What patriot hates his fellow citizens and demands the country change to fit his specific ideals? What patriot declares that this nation built on the dreams of immigrants should deny all other immigrants the chance to come here? What patriot states that diversity is a weakness not a strength?

    The Awesome Church of Christ, that sounds pretty cool. Awesome, even.

  4. ellroon Says:

    Thanks, Whig. I’m honored. I could have written it better, taken longer and made better points, but I get mad and bang away at the keyboard.

    I am so tired of getting mad. This is the United States of America and we should be proud of it not ashamed.

  5. whig Says:

    You made fine points. These people who call themselves Christian but act in a way opposite to the teachings of Christ, what do you call them?

  6. whig Says:

    Sometimes I call them Leviticans. That’s when I’m being generous.

  7. whig Says:

    Pharisees and hypocrites works just fine, though.

  8. ellroon Says:

    You are much too kind, good sir. I have a whole lot of words I call them and they aren’t so forgiving. But people who talk one way yet act the opposite need to be called such things, especially when they think themselves above reproach and therefore able to pass judgment on the rest of us.

    May they see themselves clearly in the mirror and be awakened.

  9. whig Says:

    Yes, we have all been guilty of some transgression, that may or may not have turned out to be a transgression at all, but for our upbringing. Guilt plays a heavy role in some people’s lives. Confess yourself and be free, I say.

  10. whig Says:

    But then I sound like an inquisition, so don’t confess a thing, please. Do just go on looking silly until you can admit it to yourself first.

  11. whig Says:

    I think I will go make a silly face in the mirror and return.
