Two Things Christians Should Keep in Mind When Dealing With All These #$#(*$# Idiots

All Posts No Comments

Lately one of the personal flaws that has been bothering me the most is that I am a bit, shall we say, unmerciful, in my blog posts. Now some of my repeat targets I have at least talked with over email, and I’m pretty sure I’m not making them cry. Still, a lot of times I will hit Publish Post and then think, “Is this really something I want going up under the headline, ‘A pro-Jesus…blog’?”

When I find it necessary to recalibrate myself, and begin effecting* change rather than entertaining my loyal readers, I remind myself of two things:

(1) We are all brothers and sisters in Christ, even if some of us don’t know it. (I’m not trying to “force my religion” on anyone, but let’s face it, there are certain implications of my worldview. If I think an omnipotent Being created the universe and everyone in it, well, that includes atheists.)

(2) Jesus chose Saul, a person who was literally persecuting His followers, to be the chief publicist for His word. We shouldn’t write off anyone as “irredeemable.”

* Yes that is the proper spelling.
