Positional Power

[2 min read]

The greatest cause of Atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, and walk out the door and deny him with their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

There are so many reasons why people are turned off by Christians (and the Christian faith). I’ve been reading a book called “UnChristian“, which was basically a 3-year research project on this subject, looking from the view of those not of the Christian faith commenting on the belief systems and the people. It’s very eye-opening to see the faults in the Christian society (and not necessarily the faith itself) to learn how to correct it.
Normally, I’m a bit turned off from people who use political issues as a pedestal to preach the faith. Many times, it simply puts a foul taste in the viewers/listeners mouths, as its not done in a loving way. Also, in an effort to try to seem as if Christians have all the answers, they speak in a way that’s either disrespectful or illogical, which does not make others open to it either.
But in the 3rd CNN debate, Mike Huckabee was asked a question regarding his view on creation vs. evolution (ummm…why is this so important for selecting the next President?), and he answered it remarkably. I’m not stating a political preference or posting loyalty, but simply posting a quality response.

Don’t try to act like you know everything, but don’t be scared to say what you believe is true. Props, my friend- mad props.
