Selective Christianity


Part time Christians really bother me. I get more annoyed with Christians cherry picking the aspects of the religion they want to follow than those who reject the faith and bash it. At least the atheist, agnostics, and all non-Christians are for the most part honest enough in their beliefs. I can respect that. These half-hearted Christians though like to jump on the band wagon of a cause that moves them and will choose to ignore other key parts of the religion.

I understand if you want to take a stand against homosexuality. That is great. Take the same amount of passion and take a stand against heterosexuals who have sex outside of wedlock. Do not be selective in the sins you point out.

I applaud you for taking a stand against abortion. That is amazing and of a great need. Take the same amount of passion and take a stand for those kids who have been abandoned and neglected. Reach out to those who were born as well as those who were not. Do not be selective in the sins you point out.

I think it is fantastic that you want to take a stance against the slavery of women and children around the world. Take a stance against the sexually exploited and those who have no apparent choice, but do not neglect the man you see every day. Where do Christians get the idea that it is ok to preach and lecture on ideas that have no immediate bearing on their lives yet choose to remain blind to those who are not saved and in their lives daily?

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. (Mat 7:1-2)

DO NOT BE SELECTIVE IN THE SINS YOU POINT OUT
