I was talking to my uncle the other day who said that he had been in and out of church most of his life and had never been regular until these last few years, but he was taken aback at how Christians can argue over the silliest of things. I agreed! Over the years as a pastor, sadly, too many of my phone calls are not pertaining to theological questions, but where people have gotten upset over one thing or the other. This is NOT the Christian way!!!
First, I want to apologize to anyone who has been hurt by “church folk” and hope that you never judge Jesus by our brokenness. As a sinful follower of Jesus myself and part of those “church folk,” I may not always represent Him like I should, but that is why I need Him cause I’m still a work in progress. I am just one beggar telling other beggars where the bread is.
Second, if you are a believer, apologize to the world in how you have misrepresented Jesus by complaining or arguing over silly things. The truth be told when we stop and count our blessings there should be no complaining at all, only praise to our King.
Philippians 2:14-16 – Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—.
