The subject that saddens me the most, is the Christianity has become like Baskin's 32 Flavors. Just in our little town of Branson, population 6000, we have 50 places of worship and 32 denominations of Christianity! Some denominations have even created their own logos! Think of that, designer Christians! There are TV ministers that preach Christianity, that never display a sign of Christ! Not a statue, nor a crucifix, or cross. There is one TV Evangelist, that freely admits he is Jewish, and that preaching affords him a private plane and lifestyle only royalty can afford. Christianity has become big business. Just ask Jim Bakker, who is using it to sell real estate, and goods for his "partnerships." Buy your way to heaven!
What have we allowed?
Divided as we are, it is no surprise that tiny groups of non-believers can force the signs of our faith to be removed from public places. In a country that is overwhemingly Christian, we are pushed around like sheep!
Jesus may have said to turn the other cheek, but he also had a temper. When he attacked the money changers, don't think this was not a real slug fest. These moneychangers didn't sit there with their piles of money, without bodyguards! Jesus kicked all their butts, when they obviously crossed the line. He became the Lion!
I pray that Christians unite. I pray that we realize that our belief in Christ is stronger than our personal preferences for worship. If you believe in Jesus, then demand a new morality, overcome evil, and help re-establish a Christian world community. Go with God!
