Let Me Just Say This...

"If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort about his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.  Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interest of others."  Philippians 2:1-4


(That’s me breaking out my soapbox.)

WARNING: I’m about to get on my soapbox!

I’m a bit peeved.

Got my feathers ruffled.

I have a bee in my bonnet.

So, let me just say this:

I don’t care if you were sprinkled, dunked, confirmed, saved, reborn, found Jesus, called on our Savior, witnessed, served, were ordained, certified, called, or became a missionary…

I don’t care if you’re a brother, sister, pastor, doctor, priest, preacher, or song leader…


I know Jesus said there were a lot of rooms, but I doubt they are labeled Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, First Christian, or Methodist.

We are all Christians!

And Christ is the only way to that one Heaven.

So, it is my opinion that when friends in Christ get hung up on whose doctrine of what religion is “right”, or “correct”, or what “doesn’t count”, then we are focusing on what man has made of religion and not what should be the core of our belief.

And that should be the love of Jesus and sharing it with others.

And when we say things about others churches and what they may or may not do or believe, or when they do it, then we are not carrying out the Great Commission, and are perhaps discouraging others from becoming affiliated with so-called “Christians” who appear to live as hypocrites.

One Heaven. One Jesus. One Way.

Fortunately, He died for ALL.

This concludes today’s rant on religion.

Hugs and Kisses.

(I’m stepping down off my soapbox now. Hope I don’t stumble and fall!)
