We are not pacifists
We were commanded to make war
We were chosen to stand out
If necessary, we will throw our fists
We are not prejudice
We know that God loves all people
For that reason, so do we
We do not judge by gender or by color of skin
We are not in business
Seeking a better life for ourselves
Instead, we are in service
Seeking a more abundant eternal life for those around us
Our faith is not blind
It is Confirmed
Our faith results from a search for understanding, not a lack thereof!
Our faith is not one of ritual, but one of life and action
Our Bible is not disjointed, revised, or ‘improved’
It is the most historically supported collection on the planet
It is the same today as it was more than 2,100 years ago
Contradictions DO NOT exist unless quoted out of context
Most of all, we do not claim to know all
To follow God is to admit that we were initially wrong
To admit that we were initially wrong means that we can be wrong again
We cannot follow God unless we have an Open
In fact, that’s how you know the relationship is true
We would not readily admit we were wrong to chase something that was a lie
We would not readily change, but there is an obvious difference
Stop assuming that the ‘Christians’ on television actually accurately represent an image of who God’s people are.
Stop assuming that everyone who claims to be a ‘Christian’ accurately represents an image of who God’s people are.
Stop pretending like we are in this to get something, when God calls us to give up everything we have, including our own lives.
If you are going to stereotype, at least do it right.
