I am all about living a life of Faith in Christ Jesus. As such, I am a firm believer that God desires to bless His Church. Furthermore, I believe that God is still in the healing business and that He will meet our needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
“Uh-oh, Gertrude… It’s one of them Word of Faith people that Geraldine warned us about. Be careful! I hear tell they’s contagious.”
Before you tune me out, read on. The remainder of what I share might just surprise you.
I’ve written about what I am for. Now, I will write about a few things I am against. I am very much against many of the prosperity messages that make it seem as if God were nothing more than a cosmic PEZ dispenser. I am against the belief that we Christian’s – blessed by God to live in this great United States – have our act together and that the rest of the world needs to have faith, just like us, so they too will be blessed. I am against the attitude that any type of suffering on the part of a Christian is a sign of weakness and not strength.
Funny thing though, it seems I’m not the only one who thinks this way. Every now and then, there comes along a post from another person that captures my thoughts. Pretty scary, huh? Anyways, head over to Born Again This Way: Cruciformed so you can read an eye opening message that hits home on so many levels. As always, be blessed.
