How come so many Christians don't really know God?

How come Christians don’t know God?

How come Christians don’t know God? That’s not a stupid question. In fact, it a very important question with a very disturbing answer. It’s all too easy for Christians to now know God! The headline shocked me. 51% of Churchgoers Don’t Know of the Great Commission, according to a Barna survey. I also found it very disappointing. Depressing even.

No wonder the path Jesus tells us about is so narrow. Even many of those who think they’re on it actually aren’t on it at all! They may not even be close!

Christians – are you afraid of politicians?

Christians – are you afraid of politicians?  Donald Trump seems to think you are.  Or at least hope you are.  But really, the question is deeper than that.

Will we ever love people like we love money?

Will we ever love people like we love money?  Lots of people like to talk about loving, or at least caring about people.  Few like to talk about how much they love money.  But the old saying is true – actions speak louder than words.  And our actions say we love money a whole lot more than we love people.  And so it seems, we love the god of money way more than we love the God of the Bible.

The impetus for writing this is a recent article on msn.com.  It’s titled, Tyson Foods is ramping up development of robots that can cut meat in response to coronavirus outbreaks in meatpacking plants.  Do you see the problem?  It starts just with the title.

Not to worry though.  There’s plenty more.

What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?

What is the conservative Christian view of DACA?  DACA is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  I don’t mean conservative Christians as a group.  I mean each and every individual who considers themselves Christian, especially the conservatives.  What is your stance?  And, how do you feel about the leaders you support – both politically and within your church organization?

People don’t memorize anything

People don’t memorize anything – a decade of changes

People don’t memorize anything anymore. But ultimately, not memorizing anything is a bad way to live life.  Some things are just too important to not memorize.  Because of the cost of remembering them wrong, or looking them up in the wrong place, is just too high.

No one who wants to be Christian should go through life without memorizing certain things.  Things Jesus taught.  Because the one thing we don’t want to hear is Jesus saying, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!
