I don’t pick fights, but I seem to get in arguments. Verbal arguments. A lot of times when I don’t even try to. Especially when it comes to music, I know a lot about music. Not tooting my own horn, but it’s something that I’ve invested a lot of time in. So when I see something that isn’t right, my automatic reply is to try to fix it. So this conversation happened the other day.
I decided to share this conversation, not to prove anything about myself. I’m not perfect at all, and I still have issues. But we’ve been talking with the youth about how non believers perceive us as Christians. One of the main things that seems to come up the most, is that Christians are judgemental. That dude, looked at titles of my blog, and judged me based on them. He judged me based on a blog I wrote called “Heaven Isn’t All It’s Cracked Up To Be”. He didn’t take the time to read it to see what it was about, and he made a snap judgement.
But more than anything I’m at fault too, I didn’t mean to start an argument when I wrote what I wrote, but when I did respond, there was anger in my heart. I was upset. I couldn’t believe that a so called Christian, would dare judge me like that. What I wrote, may have been right. And as far as I’m concerned it was. But what you can’t see, is my intention behind what I wrote.
Collectively, we as Christians are the downfall of Christianity. Because a whole lot of non- christian people saw that conversation, and started making comments on how religious people like to argue. We have to do better, for God’s sake!
