This thought-provoking, heart-convicting post from Evan at ‘The Real Evan Taylor’ needs to be read by more Christians! Please take some time to read, pray, and meditate on it, then share it with as many Christians as you can! We need to live more like Jesus and less like the world. We don’t function as the the body of Christ, we live less like Jesus and more through our own personal desires. We live in the age of do what we want, when we want, and sadly Christians get caught up in this too. Our half-hearted lives – 1/2 Jesus + 1/2 World – aren’t focused on God or Christlikeness. Our behavior is going to attract or turn people away from Christianity. Some people are just looking for another excuse to turn away from God, let’s not be that reason. I can’t tell you how many arguements I’ve seen in real life and on social media (Christians vs. Christians or non-believers vs. Christians) where someone says, “This is exactly why I don’t want to be a Christian…or follow your God! You’re all rude, unloving, nasty, critical, mean, judgemental hypocrites.” 😦 This is a sad daily reality. Churches, Pastors, leaders, teachers, and followers of Jesus need to focus on reviving core Christian values and modeling Christ-like lives! We need to examine everything we say and do through the filter of the Holy Spirit – be obedient to promptings and convictions. We need to live the Word of God! Be kind and love one another!
God bless you all.

Here’s a quick and easy way to get a snapshot of the questions that are being asked about us as Christians. Head over to the Google or Yahoo search page. Type in “Why are Christians so” and don’t press enter. Just look at the drop down menu of the top searches containing that phrase. This works best with Yahoo (The initial results are at the top of this article). Now type in any letter of the alphabet after that phrase (the results for “a” and “s” are below).
The overwhelming majority of those questions certainly don’t represent the Jesus I follow, the one in the bible, so what is going on?
For me this is incredibly heart breaking and I can’t help but…
