Being called CHristian is one thing.
Being a practising Christian is another.
Normally those two worlds never met.
'so-called' would be the right wording. For many people, spiritual transformation is a slow, gradual ongoing process. When humbleness starts to set in, someone can start to leave sinful and arrogant things behind.
this question reeks
I dunno wtf laud means, I could google it, but I'm too lazy. I'm an atheist and I deal with accounts receivable in my job, the most arrogant customer I have is the secretary of the local uniting church, she's agressive, abusive and swears at me on the phone, simply because I contact her to let her know that their account is 3 months overdue, yet again. Because they're a church our boss insists that we give them a longer grace period before suspending their account than our normal 1 month for any other customer; churches, charities and community groups get 3 months. The uniting church always takes longer than the 3 months and is always rude and abusive to me when I finally contact them to say it's going to be suspended. I wish we could just close their account and refuse to reopen it, then they'd have to deal with our competitor, who just stops your account once it's a few days overdue and makes you pay a fortune to reopen it, regardless of who the hell you are.
I don't think God's all hung up on what words we use. it's way more important HOW your using. them. as long as I'm not going around trying to tear people apart, I think he laughs at my x and r rated jokes.
People wonder why I don’t go to church any more. Too many hypocrites.
Not all Christians are Perfect!
like me? :D
I admit it.. it is wrong.. and it's bad habit.. hypocrites are everywhere. it sucks.. and I will regret this.. but I just wanna be me right now. although I should be a good example of a good christian... easy to attack when it's convenient though huh. Read the Bible.. I KNOW I'm in the wrong right now. ... .. guess what though.. I'm not God. and I never claimed to be perfect.. sorry.. it's called being real.. and God like's it when you're real with him.
Don't be hatin' that's not very christian like either =/
awwww.... well that's lovely dear. Don't worry .. I'll stop soon .. + I gotta work tomorrow and I don't wanna be hungover for that.. so I'm done.. Thanks though... It's a nice reminder when I'm going to far.. I appreciate your correctiveness. :]
You do realize that God just used you to get through to me right? :D tell me that's not awesome?
how do you laud praises? "Boy, that was a really good hymn I just sang? Wow, I really prayed hard today? Damn, no one says a Hail Mary like me?"
