Ok, not all of them. The American ones. Well, not all of them I suppose, but a whooooole lot of them. But if I got your attention or got you angry, read on.
This has been building in me for a long time. We Christians have our causes, but most of them are not even remotely related to Christ. I’m not saying they’re bad, mind you – but I am saying they are somewhat meaningless. And I wonder if our passion for the gospel matches our passion for our causes.
Many Christians get all fired up over immigration. “If those people want to live here, they should learn to speak english!” I wonder if you know your bible they way that you expect them to know your language?
We love to rail against the users in society. “If I need a drug test to get a job, then people should have to pass one to get welfare.” Do you put the same performance tests on chronic users in the church? Are you a consumer?
I’m not saying that these sentiments are necessarily bad. I’m just wondering if we are consistent.
