Christianity is not Insanity

Christianity is not Insanity

We all want, at sometime in life, to do something that gets attention from the mass.
What we say will be used against us in a court of law or our immediate family.
I can’t say that being held hostage in some cult will do you good.
And I can’t think for a moment that every decision we make will put us on the map.
So if you’ve been raised in or have just entered into Christianity well you’re in for
A huge ride of your life!

It’s not all easy and it’s not all absolute
Don’t try to figure and make some drastic mandates to some obscure premature belief system
It’s simple being Christ like.
It’s easy being a Christian.
It’s not so fun to have to lay down your life like Christ did for the world.
But hey, that’s not the fine print that’s His footprints you have to deal with.

To be or not to be is a rather dumb question when the answer is dangling face front!

Faith or Fakery

Faith or Fakery

There comes a time when we have to deal with the truth.
Conan in his commencement address to Dartmouth College in 2011 said,
“Deal with it”!

I like the idea that it’s easier to fix someone else than yourself.
The Dentist has bad teeth,
The Mechanic’s car is on blocks
and Marks’ a pathetic wreck!

Faith is trusting.
Wow, most of us have tried but been burnt by a system of liars.
So if it started with your mom or dad, then you’ve got a ways to go.
Faith is trusting
If you’re friendless and very genetically predisposed to be closet-close then it will take time
To venture out into the big bad world of hype and glitz.
Faith is trusting.
Believing in yourself maybe the first mistake of earning your ‘trusting PHD’.
Faith is trusting.
Relying on past performances can hinder your encore requests.
Faith is trusting.
Trusting in the unknown is like life insurance that only the beneficiary can understand
And take full reward of.
Faith is trusting.
“Faith is not hanging by a thread and hoping for a 12 inch cable will replace it.
Faith is trusting.
Faith is both the substance of things hoped for and the evidence that things exist that are not yet perceived with the senses.
Faith is trusting in the previous verse that came from the book of Hebrews!

Instant Gratification

Instant Gratification

We all want to pull a number and get a shot in the arm then call it a day.
There’s this instant in and instant exit that plays with our psyche and
What can we do with our misconceptions of how, when, where and why?
It’s not easy to adjust to some new technology that holds us hostage and
There’s never enough knowledge to mastermind an answer to solve the cure for cancer either!

The planet never needs the managerial skills of fallible humans.
We think we know, but we’re dumb!
Maybe we should take a long walk on some long wall.
What do ya think?
Maybe, just maybe we’ll see that it takes time to find ourselves outside of ourselves.
Stop pushing and pulling to get to the head of the class!
Okay?

The Cat Litter Smells Fishy

The Cat Litter Smells Fishy

I’ve been a Christian for at least 4 decades and have watched fads come and go.
There are still some farfetched ideas that remain hanging when they should of been tossed.
So it’s easy to sit and critique but that’s good marketing, if you know what I mean?

So over the past forty years I can tell you one of the ideas that wreaks with over exposure.
It’s the fish sign!
When I got saved, it was making its grand entrance but that was 40 years ago.
Times have changed and current trends have migrated like some hiatus to higher ground.
There’s nothing like beating a dead horse and hoping it still gets the same results.
And there’s nothing like someone who needs to remain private for fear of their life.
So if you think you’re more inclusive by some sign or sticker, you’re not!

When I see them on some BMW, I cringe!
And that’s not because I’m poor but because the message is inclusive and I have that!

So if you want to infect the world with quality symbols, try prayer or fasting behind closed doors!

The Polar Opposite is not Green Cement

The Polar Opposite is not Green Cement

Most of my life I’ve been trying to dispel the very essence of bogus Christianese in the church.
The community of believers seem to get so hoodwinked into some snake charming right winged evangelical ramble that it’s a shame to the total when the cause and affect overshadow the heart of the matter.

We all have to master what’s thrown on our plate.
The cost is always greater while the eating is tainted.
Why not look before you cross?
Why not test the waters before you swim against the current?
And why not try, for once in your life, to see simple-stealth-Christianity goes a long way!

We may think the grass is greener on the other side but I say it’s only green cement and
What we thought was truth is just a figment of our self-induced-pathetic-reinvention of the same o same o!

I want new and improved.
I want a new collar not the same old dog.
We deserve to taste the new wine and not some regurgitated hermetically sealed fake!
Be Christ and not some clown!
The world is still waiting for the real deal to appear!
So don’t disappoint them when they cry out for an encore for the original.
