Secular fanatics who don’t believe in God are great ones for giving you advice on how to be “a good Christian.” I’ve been getting more than my share of it lately. Let me distill it for you. According to them:
A good Christian supports “gay marriage” and recognizes that the only thing that counts is “love.”
A good Christian always gives priority to man’s word over God’s, and recognizes that the Bible is just a lot of fiction anyhow, and not an authority on anything.
A good Christian defers to secular Science every time as the ultimate authority on everything. He wouldn’t dream of questioning Evolution or Global Warming.
A good Christian is always happy to support abortion, even to the extent of cheerfully paying for other people’s abortion. He supports groups like Christian Clergy for Choice.
A good Christian is careful to keep his religious beliefs to himself, expressing them only when he is actually inside a church. All the rest of the time, mum’s the word.
A good Christian understands that secularists are infinitely more intelligent than he can ever be, and is glad to have them in total control of public policy.
A good Christian keeps his lip zipped whenever he hears any atheist or a homosexual militant pouring out abuse against God the Father.
Are you getting as sick of this as I am?
Sad to say, there are a lot of these good Christians around, these days, especially among the flatline Protestant churches. I think they believe the world will approve of them, or at least tolerate them, if they actively seek its approval.
I think they’re wrong. Do you?
