Okay don't get any ideas here! Those aren't my words, I still love the Lord wholeheartedly! I saw this post from someone on my other blog's dashboard and it reminded me of some of the common excuses people have for some not being 'Christian anymore
Anne Rice: 'I Quit Being A Christian'
“I quit being a Christian. I’m out. In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life. In the name of…Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.” - Anne Rice
Witnessing on the streets has taught me so many things and the main thing that has always bugged me, is the false Jesus that is portrayed, this false religion that so many people have grown up to know.I think a lot of people don't realize that to be alive with Christ is to put to death all worldly things. The common misconception is the belief that as long as you've been Christened and you've said a few Hail Mary's and you've got your little rosary beads at hands, that your okay. They have no real belief or understanding of who God is, So therefore I understand why these people feel burned out, because they're leaning on their own understanding! They've got one foot in the world and one foot in the faith - They want to go to church on Sunday, but then do all kinds of immoral things on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. This person wants to be in the world, they want to enjoy the pleasures of this world and take the Heavenly prizes too - But I'm not gonna say much more on this subject - Lets just let the word of God do that shall we? :D
James 4:4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God
1 John 2:15
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Here's a question
If you stopped being a Christian, were you ever really a Christian?
