  1. I changed the title to reflect the actual message.
  2. OK, I appreciate your sentiment, but how does that related to what the article actually talked about?

    Does anyone else do this?

    A long time ago, Bebe and Cece Winans recorded the song "Love Lift Us Up Where We Belong" - only their version of it was "Lord, Lift Us Up Where We Belong" - and it was a hit among Christians.
  4. The real title is actually How to Raise a Pagan Kid in a Christian Home - but you get the idea. Read what the author has to say about it here: http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/44118-how-to-raise-a-pagan-kid-in-a-christian-home#sthash.Om0NRFMP.dpuf
  5. <snip> "While dissenting opinions are important because they often open our eyes to viewpoints that we maybe never considered, the spirit in which they are given is just as important. Comments that are arrogantly dismissive, snarky, nasty or just plain rude reveal far more about the person writing them than they help whatever cause that person is trying to champion. Often these comment threads turn into backyard theology brawls and completely ignore Paul's reminder not to judge or despise our brother, and that we are ultimately only responsible and answerable to God for ourselves (Rom 14:10-12). But I'm not as interested in dealing with the symptom (people being horrible on social media) as I am with the root, which is ultimately many Christians' feeling that policing other people is not only their right, but their God-given duty. When Paul tells the Corinthians that it is not our place to judge those outside the church, but rather those within (1 Cor. 5:12), I'm not sure he had Facebook or YouTube in mind. When these words were written, there was a natural understanding that any "judgment" of fellow believers was going to happen in the context of relationship. What has happened today is instead a kind of free-for-all of opinions shouted at the top of our lungs that is completely outside of relationship." http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/behind-the-lens/65730-the-ugly-underbelly-of-christian-opinion
  6. I am betting there were Chirstians in the Church of Ephesus with all their accolades who had a hard time accepting there was anything wrong with them as well.

    Happens to us all! But sometimes, it comes out funny.

    There's got to be a good comeback joke to that somewhere....

    Do you mean Enoch ch. 1, or what? But what does Enoch say that you are pointing to?
  11. The situation is baffling to me. Has anyone here been keeping eye on the details of things over time to get what's going on?

    Actually, nickn was pointing to something. Earlier he encouraged another poster to Google: Problem, Reaction, Solution. I just did. And it disturbingly makes a whole lot of sense.

    Are Christians suppose to hate anyone?

    Along with the principles we need to look at the applications. Jesus said, "Love your enemies," and all that, but look at how He regarded and the religious leaders, King Herod, and the others who rejected Him. The ones who rejected Him, He didn't even bother giving the time of day for. King Herod, He completely dissed. The religious leaders, He vehemently opposed.
  14. You say that as if "church" is the only exposure I've had. But I've been listening to TV and radio preachers since the 70's; been to Christian camps; been following and interacting with several ministries; etc.,etc., etc.
