Persecuting Pastors?

“An East African gay advocacy group alleges a Massachusetts evangelist has waged a decade-long campaign to persecute gays in Uganda” (USA Today)

The words evangelist and persecute are in the wrong order in this sentence. The Bible says that Christians are supposed to prepare to be persecuted for our faith, and count it all joy. (James 1:2)

However, there are too many instances of Christians persecuting everyone else (including each other at times) and being called judgmental, hypocritical nutcases.

Christians should master the 2 greatest commandments (Matthew 22:36-40) before taking another step in their walk with Christ.

If all Christians became united on just these 2 commandments alone and put this at the forefront of our minds, there would be no incidents of “Christians” attacking homosexuals or each other for that matter, and maybe homosexuals and anyone else living in the midst of sin could discern the truth for themselves.

Doesn’t Pay to Listen

I just read a helpful blog, “The Secret to Not Caring What Other People Think.”  If I may humbly add what seems to be a secret to most inconfident people is:

My Father’s House is bigger than yours!

And I agree with the blogger it doesn’t pay to eavesdrop (Ecclesiastes 7:21): “Also, do not take seriously all words which are spoken, so that you will not hear your servant cursing you.” (Ecclesiastes 7:21)

Nice Doesn’t = Door Mat!

Don’t you hate it when you hold the door open for someone & instead of them catching it as they approach, they walk through as if you were their personal doorman?
