On Bringing Friends To Church
“and we walk in to church and the whole time i’m nervous
it’s not that i want a watered down gospel, or the pastor to cater to them, i just want this pastor to show how good and awesome God is
and the pastor actually goes ‘Obama? more like O-bummer’
i remember leaving the church, talking to my friend, and i was like ‘i’m so sorry this is not what church is about‘”
“actually, i know i’m a self-centered person and i don’t do that every time.
but when i read the Bible, when i understand our faith and Christianity, I believe in a God who gets eye-to-eye with you and says
‘that thing you’re worked up with? let’s take a look at that together. right where you are, in your mess, let’s work on this thing together.’
i can love the unlovable because i was unlovable and shown love.
we can pay the cost of love because God did it first.”
