>THINKABOUTIT – It’s Not GODianity

>I wish I’d quit using the word “god.”

It is nebulous, like “okay” in response to “how are you?”

Means nothing. Over ninety percent of Americans believe in “god.”

Talk about “god” all day long; no one gets upset. Talk about Jesus and the stuff hits the fan. “one of them” “Right wing fanatic” “fundamentalist” etc…

But talking about “how much I love god” and “god means so much to me” is not helpful since the word means nothing.

If the Son of Man be lifted up…

Brag on Jesus.

There is a reason it’s called CHRISTianity.

ADDENDUM Here’s an example, I just got this:
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, wrote in an E-mail to supporters this week. “The government has eliminated God from the classroom and too often replaced Him with an anti-life, anti-family curriculum that misses life’s deepest meaning.”

Okay, Tony’s statement may be true, but, first, government can not ban the Lord…secondly, whose “god”? Allah? The Jehoveh’s Witness’ version? In no way am I dissing Tony…I’m simply trying to point out that god-talk is non-talk. We need to do some mental “find and replace” (for those who use Word!) and look for “god” and replace with “Jesus.”

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
