Guilty or not guilty. Justice served or not. Once again, “Christians” across this nation have proven they are no different in their reactions than non-Christians. This bothers me and I think this is a great example of whether people who profess to be “Christians” are true followers of Him or merely fans of Him.
Claiming to be a Christian is easy. Being a true Christ Follower is not. Throughout Christ’s teachings, He tells us how difficult it is and will be. Today’s church has and continues to pretend it is easy to be a Christ Follower. Raise your hand. Sign this form. Say this prayer. Poof you’re a christian. Not.
Die to yourself. Love others. Obey His teachings. Much harder and not as popular. Obviously why so many choose to be a fan and not a follower.
You can justify your words and your actions as to why you say and do what you do. At the end of the day, Christ Followers are to be different. Not because we are perfect but because we are trying to do and follow what Christ teaches us and that in itself is different than how the world acts.
Be angry. Be mad. Be outraged. But don’t spew hatred and vile things on facebook, twitter, your blog or even while talking to others. Remember, the same Christ who died for you died for Casey Anthony.
