I am a Christian. Not Religious. I don’t believe in tradition. I believe in breaking it.
I hate it when people refer to me as religious. I’m not.
I am a Christian. I was taught that a Christian is to be “Christ – Liked.” The Greeks gave us the name.
Jesus healed on the sabbath, talked to the Gentiles, converted a murderer into an Apostle. Jesus was not religious. He defeated the box that “religion” made!
Therefore I am Christ – Like.
My blog post typically end with biblical passages. They are inspiring. I do not believe in using the bible as doctrine for hate, intolerance, and discrimination.
No! I’ll leave that to the “religious” people.
I am not better than anyone, never will be. I’m human, and with every flaw possible. I have been blessed with the gift of forgetfulness. I don’t hold grudges, and I am not consumed by anger, or hate. I am consumer with passion. Justice runs through my veins.
Since I am not religious I do not compare my self with other faiths. I believe at the root of most faiths there is a supreme being. Whom I call God.
The apostle Paul said it best, in Romans 15: 20 20 It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation. (THAT’S IT FOR ME)
I want to advocate for youth in foster care, and low-income families. I want to write policy. That is my passion. Not to condemn people to hell, or preach morality (what every that really means).
I’ll speak love, honesty, truthfulness, commitment, forgiveness, hard work, and perseverance. That is what is most important.
I will not deny who I am as a Christian. But I can promise you I am not one of those, fake, hypocritical, condescending, insulting, blasphemous religious folks.
I am Christ – Like. Meaning what you have heard about Jesus, is who I try to be. Nothing more, and nothing less!
Religion fights, and kills. Religion and false doctrine breaks hearts, and scars humanity. Religion breaks families, and destroys a nation. Religion is prideful, arrogant, and self-fish. Religion is the bullet in the gun. Religion is the worst invention, invented by man. That’s it!
Religion is man-made!
Christ didn’t fit into a religion that’s why he was killed! He just wanted the good, not to debate over scripture, and wound nations upon nations.
I’m Christ – Like!
So forgive me, if I end every blog with a scripture, and leave every sentence longing for something eternal. It’s just who I am.
I am not better than you. I do not hate. I try to love. I try to be open. I try to be who Christ was while he was living on this earth.
I am Christ – Like!
