Food for Thought-10 Warning Signs You Might Have Wandered Into a Place That Claims To Be A Church

Slide1

If Their Vision of Christianity Involves:

1. Tearing down other religions in order to feel secure as a Christian

2. Believing your faith (personally and collectively) is constantly under attack

3. Spending more time talking about eternity than what Jesus calls us to do today

4. Focusing on a personal relationship with Jesus so much so it means you never ask how that relationship alters your perspective on the call to love those who are radically different from you

5. Talking to God more than listening to God

6. Hearing more sermons about obeying God’s rules than calls to embody God’s love

7. Reading yourself into every parable as the “good guy” and seeing everyone else around as those who don’t get it

8. Insisting that God’s grace is only offered to those who say the right words, pray the right prayer, and worship how you worship

9. Repeating the phrase “love the sinner, hate the sin” because you think it makes you sound less judgmental

10. Interpreting scripture with no respect to tradition, reason, or human experience

What can you do? Live fully, love wastefully-like Jesus.
