I am a Christian. I believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. I believe that I should strive to live my life according to the principals set forth in the Bible.
My problem comes in when I look at other Christians, that profess to be "doing" all the things that God wants them to do and in many areas I see that is true in their life, but then there are areas that do NOT resemble what God has laid out for them to be in the Bible and they totally ignore that or refuse to see it. It REALLY grates on me!!
Now I know that I am not to look at other men/women to see what Christianity looks like, and I don't. I attempt to pattern my life after what the Bible teaches. I do know that man is man and that, even tho they strive, they will fall short and need God's grace and forgiveness in their lives. I know that I fall short almost daily, and I am so thankful for God's love, grace and forgiveness. However, I don't think I talk like I have it all right and everyone else is wrong. What really galls me is when people rub it in your face as how great they are living for God and doing what He wants them to do when you can see PLAINLY areas in their life that are not being lived according to what God teaches.
OK,, I got that off my chest!!
