Interesting day so far…
Talked with a Buddhist who doesn’t want to “limit my options” when it comes to spiritual issues. She sees a Christian behind every bush, ready to jump out and violate her spiritually. It’s happened “many times;” “when a friend becomes a Christian they go all weird and terminate our friendship.” “Pastors want to take the fun out of life;” “I don’t want to be a Christian because I couldn’t live with myself if I was that arrogant.”
Talked with a fellow bent on wrecking havoc in his church. “They’re all a bunch of jerks and I’m gonna show ’em.” Just what is he going to “show ’em?” That innuendo, insinuation and outright lies can destroy the leadership and “spiritual” members.
Talked with a lady who has a cat with throat cancer. She is freaking that the cat may die. “I’ve been fasting and praying for 2 weeks for my cat to live! Please pray for my cat! I need God to understand that he can’t kill my cat!”
Quite a picture we Christians are presenting to the world, yes?
