The Tough Part of Being Christian

It’s that Christ-like part…

Have you seen this?

Really? That’s considered Christian worship??

How about this quote? Remember this?

But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those that hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.”

If anyone strikes you on the cheeck, offer the other also; and from anyone who takes away your coat, do not withhold even your shirt.”

Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them again.”

Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.”

If you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But, love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for He is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”

                 ~~ Jesus Christ, The Bible (NRSV), Luke 6:27-36

Christ is just as radical and threatening to the “established church” today as he was 2000+ years ago…
