I love God's timing. Today. Went to a beginner's modern dance class with my best friends and then we had lunch at Veggie Galaxy. YUM. Then as we're walking down the street, we see Memi from church and we hug and I see my friend Manny! So cool. So we walked home and we ran into his cousin Mike, who gave me a ride to work. Sad thing about religion is that people lose out on God because of the failures of man.
People lose out on one of the greatest benefits of God's Kingdom here on earth, which is the incredible love and outpouring from the CHURCH, the bride of Christ. Sure there are some weird, evil, unhealthy, uncool people wandering the pews, and some doctrines that are a bit rigid, some people who are uptight, hypocrites, liars, cheats, but COME ON! Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater!!!! Why would you disregard one of the most beautiful life-giving, life-supporting, vehicle for change and liberation? You love God, but not His bride? I am so sorry, but do you really?!?!?! I don't know what to say to that.
Is it okay that other people have other religions? They are in a burning building and you better get them out because these people that you so called love are going down in flames. No, this is not an easy religion to follow or relationship to walk out, but it's the truth. I love to know the truth, walk in the truth, and live in the truth. And yes, sometimes the truth HURTS. Sometimes it means someone has to be wrong. Sometimes that's every religion in the world that doesn't worship God and Jesus Son of God and the Holy Spirit Trinity.
