“Christians” reblogged from I REFUSE TO FOLLOW YOUR BLOG

“Christians” is a post I found reblogged at Truth in PalmyraWally Fry noted this this post is not for the tender eared.  does not shade the truth. So I cocked my head, covered my ears, and read.

It’s high time I come after those who call or consider themselves “christians”.

I’ve had it!  

You’re all a bunch of wannbe’s.

That’s right!!!

WANNABE’s!!

I was raised in the church.  taught scripture from the time I was three.  The men and women who taught me were some of the most intelligent, kindhearted, loving people you would ever meet.  They spent hours dedicated to teaching the love of God and the message of salvation through His son, Jesus.  They served with compassion,  grace and humility and they never expected anyone to lead who wasn’t meant to lead.  Serve who wasn’t meant to serve.  Give who wasn’t meant to give.

They lived their lives as true leaders who didn’t beg for people to stay active or dig deep in their pockets to keep the “church” functioning.  They didn’t spend hours using the pulpit for their own selfish gain.  And YES…preaching from the pulpit that you need to serve, serve, serve or give, give give is for selfish gain, the reason…because they aren’t relying on GOD to provide.  (continued here)

irtfyblog the author of I REFUSE TO FOLLOW YOUR BLOG may have his tongue in his cheek, but he does not make it obvious. Therefore, when you read “Christians”, don’t be surprised if it rubs you the wrong way. Just keep this in mind, what we need to glean from this post. What a Christian believes is what makes a Christian a Christian. If we don’t believe, have faith that Jesus died on a cross for our sins and rose from the dead, then we are not a Christian. If we don’t believe that Jesus is God and that He loves us, then we are not a Christian. And why do I say that? I believe the Bible is the Word of God, and that is what the Bible says.

‘s blog includes this page, You’re All Cattle (what I really think). That page reminded me of the difference between contentment and complacency.  Belief.

The cow, not truly aware it lives to be milked or eaten, provides the picture of complacency, not contentment. Consider how the Apostle Paul defined the meaning of contentment.  Here is what he wrote from the confinement of a cold, drab cell in a Roman prison to thank the Philippians for their prayers and their generosity.

Philippians 4:10-13 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

What about us? How many of us believe in a Christ who strengthens us? How many of us “believe” that each of us has our own truth and that all truths are equally good? How many of us allow the public school system to preach the gospel of multiculturalism to our children — and do nothing?

When we consider our self, what can we say we believe? Are we are content in Christ? Or are we complacent, believing in nothing? Is there any Truth for which we would give our life?

  1. Beautiful, Tom! I really loved Irtfy’s post, so well said. As to making some uncomfortable, is that not what good preaching, indeed, even faith itself is supposed to do? Afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted?

  2. Tom, in the last few paragraphs of your posting you give several great questions that need to be considered by each one of us. May we all take care to genuinely consider these questions and make an honest assessment of our commtiment to Christ. Thanks for the posting
