They will know us by our Love.

This blog is a spawn of an idea that came to me April 18th, 2010 in a small group. If you want to know the story behind it, here it is. Enjoy:

4.18.2010

Today in small group, we talked about our country. We talked about how the country was founded and the historical revisionism that plagues our conversation even today. People want the public to believe that our founders were atheists. They want you to believe that religion and morality had nothing to do with our past or how things were run. They would like you to believe that some of the highest ivy league colleges in the country like Harvard, Columbia and Princeton were not founded on faith. The wave of New Atheism strives to actively suppress the belief in a God or that Jesus was the Son of Man. They believe that children shouldn’t even be exposed to this by their parents.

My question is this. When did people assume that to be a Christian you had to be submissive and OKAY with people walking all over you? I’m serious. Do you see it? Happening in our streets, on our talk shows, in our bookstores.

The problem is this. If we as believers are to rise up and take back what we believe, it is about being united. Breast Cancer. One issue. Easy to unite under. MANY women are affected by this or know someone who has had it. A single issue is 100 times easier to unite under than a complicated one. Just TRY and think about all the different believers coming together for one cause………..Chaos. Not only do most believers believe different things, but they also are under different denominations and HOLD to it tightly. We focus so hard on the things that make us different, that we forget about the things that make us the same. Let me say that again. We focus SO HARD on the things that make us different, that we forget about the things that make us the same.

Can all believers unite under Love? A massive Love movement spreading across this country that makes the hardest Cynic do a double take. They will know us by our Love. I believe that. John 15:12-13 Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. Make it simple people. Make it about Love. For God so LOVED this world. Common people. Unite under a simple issue and lets become united to bring Jesus to hurting people. Don’t bring in robes, don’t bring in your rituals. Don’t bring in your thee’s, thou’s, or thine’s. Your his, hers, or mine’s. Don’t bring your tedious, picky or strenuous doctrine. LOVE. I’m not sayin’ all we need is Love, but it’s a start.

UNITE FOR LOVE. bring it.

Prayers always.
