Quick Rant....

I am so bewildered by people who are so set on being truth speakers and a voice of reason in the name of Jesus, yet don't do what Jesus did, love God and love people. They throw his name around and quote His words all in the name of truth, when in reality it's just subtle, but pure gossip and bitterness. Many "blogs" (and I say that rolling my eyes) have become a forum for some people to complain, call out and be just plain ol' big mouths all in the name of truth. I'm sick of a bunch of fellow evangelicals getting on the soap box about the emergent church. That's so yesterday. We have bigger problems in this world than a bunch of guys who like candles, mantras and weird hair-dos. Last I checked there were millions of people who are dying and going to hell. As Christ-followers it's important that we remain Biblical (for it is our source of all reference) but for crying out loud, lets have the heart of Jesus. Love God, Love People.

Geniunely loving people through relationships is hard. It is much easier to do what they are doing...

I understand where you are coming from. But when does it become a rant and when is it opinion? I totally agree the end all is serving Christ and trying to be more like Him in what we do, but when does variation of opinion and the ability to interpret things a different way become another soap box to some and an opinion to others?

Personally I think the fact that "the church" being divided over small differences in man made opinion, when looked at in the scope of God's Kingdom or eternity, are meaningless hurts Jesus way more than anything.

shawn,
a rant is uninteruppted opine, period. thats what this blog is, my opinion, my thoughts. there is a bottom line: love God, love people. opinion can become a divider especially when there are names, people and no tact involved. i can sleep at night with my opinion and expression of it in a tactful way.
