I don’t know where I stand with organized religion. I went to the same church for 20 years and I watched it implode on itself with in-fighting, power struggles, lying, manipulating and more and I’m glad I left when I did.
Now I’m older, I’ve seen a ton of ignorance come out of Christians who aren’t willing to accept that just because they’re Christian doesn’t mean they’re flawless, make mistakes, screw up on a moment to moment basis and even worse, they judge others all the time.
Hey I know I judge people all the time. It’s part of life, but I’m also not labeling myself something and then using it as a title in a way that screams out “I’M BETTER THAN YOU!” I don’t use terms to define the rest of the world as a whole because what good would that do?
Aren’t you as Christians supposed to bring more members into your fold? Into the flock? Labeling them things like “sin slaves” because you dislike the term “bible thumper” does nothing but prove them right.
