Have Some Christian? No, Thank You.

What in the world??

Town halls across the nation are filled with "moral" and "righteous" Christians spewing borderline and outright racial epithets. Calling for the death of our President. It all started during the presidential campaign, the seemingly frenzied, desperate behavior of Republican Christians, politicians and citizens alike at the prospect of a black, I mean Democratic President.

And now with Tea Parties and Town Halls, they come armed with anger and misinformation yelling about anything, but health care. Where is the reasonable state of mind?

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. - 2 Tim.1:7

Where's the fruit of peace? Charity, anyone??

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, - Galatians 5:22

"We're trying to preserve America." they believe. "We are trying to save our children's future.", they excuse.

Well, no wonder they are paranoid, irrational and defensive!

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. - 1 Corinthians 15:19

In case you missed it while at church, Christ has absolutely no intention on "preserving America".

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. - Revelation 21:3

He is going to preserve His people. The True Worshipper (John 4:23). Taking place on a "new earth"...

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. - Revelation 21:1

Under the reign of a new and perfect King.

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. - Revelations 11:15

So, please excuse me while I pass up your offer of some Christian. I'll keep my "unchurched" status and take my chances on Faith, thank you very much!
