I Believe.....

"God said, one man and one woman.  If you are the Christian you profess to be, you would feel the same way too."  This is part of a very nasty e-mail I received from a person that belongs to my church. 
Besides being shocked and hurt by many of his comments to me that left my jaw on the floor, all because I told him to send me no more political e-mails, as he and I are in two totally different camps politically.  But of all the insults this one bothers me the most.  The operative words here for me are "if you are the Christian you 'profess' to be".  So.  In the opinion of many, you must be a cookie cutter Christian, all have the same beliefs and values, and if you don't then you are not a true Christian?  I was told of his many offices and accreditation's, President of this, chairman of that, but what have I done to profess my faith and belief in Christ? I didn't realize you had to have titles before your name and fancy credentials to enter the kingdom of Heaven. 
My faith is extremely important to me.  It has gotten me through some terrible times, and helped me to cross many a stormy sea.  I can't imagine my life without Christ as my redeeming Savior.
I guess what I'm trying to say, is be true to your God, and true to your values and moral standards.  We are all different.  We all worship in a way that is glorifying to our Savior.  To be told you are anything less, is an insult.

This is happening so much now, it's quite distasteful. I try not to make public political statements as I am a liberal, not necessarily religious but very spiritual and have felt this sort of attack also. I guess some forget that there is freedom in America to worship how we choose. I've seen that freedom deteriorate far too much in the last 20 years. I can only hope the pendulum will swing back soon.

I agree with Carol........this is happening.........too much. My sister in law told me about a site on Facebook, that she was so shocked and disgusted by. Their title is a bible verse and they call themselves ministries......... However, the aim insults and harsh words to mothers of daughters. Apparently it is a place where daughters.......who are angry at their mothers can go and read encouraging.......degrading words about mothers..........while the author proclaims to be a ministry. So many things are in such turmoil anymore!

Sounds like he has a problem. We can choose to forgive - and then refrain from throwing our 'pearls before swine'. This applies in many other situations, as well.
