Matt does it again


Matt , a blogger I've quoted before, sez:
  • "2/ In speaking against the ways of Christian heretics, the Apostle Peter warned, “This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings; yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.” (2 Peter 2:10-11)"
He goes on to say:
  • "I don’t know about you but to me this suggests that, not only should we treat non-Christians with respect as I have argued elsewhere, but that we should also treat non-Christian gods and goddesses with respect - even though we deny them."
Before Christ drew me to Him, I believed in the Allah of the Baha'i Faith and, later, a hazy "HP" in twelve step programs. Those beliefs kept me away from unhealthy lifestyles that would have killed me before I had found salvation.

So I think it's my job to give a Faith to others, not take it away.

It's still early and I haven't had my 5th cup of coffee yet, however I do agree about respecting non-Christians. I think that our actions (in love) can go a long way to having opportunities for witnessing to non-believers about Jesus and His desire to be our personal Saviour.

Congratulations to Matt, for accepting Jesus Christ, the only legitimate healthy relationship to be in.
