... grrr.... they make me mad.
That's what some people call Christians, of which I am one.
Recently Anne Rice (author of such works as INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE) said, "Today I quit being a Christian...It's simply impossible for me to belong to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious and deservedly infamous group." Later, Anne Rice said she is a Christian but, "following Christ does not mean following his followers."
So my rant today is about those people like Anne Rice who don't like 'Christians'.
Well, I don't think Jesus Christ himself likes those 'Christians'.
Yes, I want to steer clear of those people.
(Well, except the like-minded I guess.)
If you read the New Testament you'll see that folks called "Pharisees" are the kind of folks Anne Rice doesn't like.
And yes, they're in churches everywhere.
But so are wonderful, loving folks.... who are not self-righteous, and still see the need of help, and God.
And who are not out to bash you.
Ah, but I guess to some folks one bad apple does indeed spoil the whole bushel.
I hope Anne Rice will find some group of believers that will be good for her.
Because we all need each other.
Oh, but if she's looking for the perfect group... she won't find it.
