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.
