Don’t follow Christians

Hidden Mickey by jeff noel
Hidden Mickey at Virginia Falls in Glacier National Park. The purpose of Lent is often hidden too.

Don’t follow Christians, follow Jesus.

Christians are messed up because they’re human.

Flawed.

Hopeful.

Caring.

Yet weak.

The devil makes Christians look stupid far too often.

The devil could never make Jesus look stupid.

Don’t follow Christians and expect to not be let down.

PS. Do the math on Christians too. An overwhelming percentage of great humanitarian deeds and inspiring rallying to serve the underserved are initiated and carried out by Christians.

I Am A Follower, Right?

The only thing you can do in the back seat is follow, making the choice easy.

Bill Clinton (in yesterday’s headline) isn’t trying to solve all the world’s problems, just most of them. Jesus is trying to solve all the world’s problems. But He’s trying to solve them through ordinary people, not Presidents. At Church today, the Deacon talked about our role as follower.

He suggested that our laws shouldn’t drive our values, but that our values ought to drive our laws. Roe vs Wade on January 22, 1973 created a law that leaves me extraordinarily confused – a child dies for every abortion. Dies.

PS. It is January 22, 2012 as I write this. (it’s a “blog 90-days ahead experiment”), so it’s in the moment now, but on April 22 when we read this, we’ll race right on by it….and that was the Deacon’s point. A follower can not.
