    I’m a Christian – a faithful, tithing Anglican Christian. I have been at the altar every Sunday and Holy Day for as long as I can remember. And I’m sick to death of the whining of conservative Christians.

    Well said D Berry —

    “And I’m sick to death of the whining of conservative Christians.”

    Conservative religiosity itself seems to naturally promote whiners, sitters in the seat of the scornful, finger pointers, accusers, judgers and so on.

    There’s a verse that goes like this — The faith you have, keep it to yourself before God. Blessed is the one who does not judge himself by what he approves.

    Now…..if we are blessed because we don’t judge ourselves because of the things “we” approve of…….why should anyone judge others because of the things “they” approve of ?

  • Billysees, are you aware that the Bible says that if we do not acknowledge Christ before men, then He (Christ) will not acknowledge us before his Father (God) in heaven. There is no other name under heaven, given among men, (than that of Jesus Christ) whereby we must be saved. WE MUST NOT KEEP OUR FAITH TO OURSELVES BUT PROCLAIM TO OTHERS HOW MUCH GOD LOVES THEM, AND THAT CHRIST DIED FOR THEM. It seems that everyone can express their opinions these days, EXCEPT FOR CHRISTIANS. Without Christ, people will spend ETERNITY in hell. I DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN TO ANYONE. We do not go to heaven for being good, but for having faith that God provided His Son as our substitute to pay for our sins. WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT THIS WORLD CANNOT GIVE YOU INNER PEACE AND SECURITY, TURN TO GOD AND YOU WILL FIND IT. WE MUST PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL, BUT WE MUST DO IT WITH LOVE AND WITH THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. ONLY GOD CAN DRAW YOU TO HIM, NOT OTHER PEOPLE.
