Here’s a thought that I’ve been mulling over for weeks now. It’s satirical.
In order to live a safe and steady Christian life in an orderly and manageable fashion, you should stop reading your Bible(s), listening to sermons, and praying. Disown all strong and mature Christian friends who might pray for you. (Oh, wait. It might already be too late.)
Ever think, “Lord, I hope not,” and then catch yourself? You know, because of Ephesians 2:10, or Titus 3:8, or 2 Peter 1:5-11, or 1 John 2:3-6 – they all talk about how we are not saved by works, but we are saved for works. (To paraphrase.) Something my pastor talked about this fine Sunday morning. But any good sermon that involves 1 John 2:15 and the principles behind that isn’t meant to leave you in fine weather on the inside, eh?
In any case, at least there’s still Proverbs 21:1. That helps get a “Lord, I guess so.”
