At one time evangelical Christians were all about sharing the good news. But lately, from political power grabs to cold and apathetic responses to the plights of others to abject hypocrisy, media whoring, and overt acts of hatred, today’s evangelical Christians are unrecognizable as members of Christ’s flock. And with behavior like that is it any wonder why the church’s popularity and relevance are at an al…
The last church (non-denominational, “multicultural,” and evangelical) I attended displayed these exact characteristics. They were amplified it seems at the election of President Obama. It shook me to my core, and made me re-evaluate Christianity and how it was introduced to African Americans via our descendants. I really had to do some soul searching, and I eventually left church and organized religion altogether. It is too conflicting and too difficult to align man’s actions with ancient texts on our behavior. It’s more difficult to watch and rely on leaders who display behavior contrary to the “good words” the believe worthy of disseminating.
Seems everyone should be held accountable except religious leaders. They get Mulligans, do overs, freedom of speech, freedom to worship, tax-exemptions, super sized grants to do “charitable works” in all the places Christianity was used to plunder centuries ago, with no accountability. It just makes no sense to me. So I tossed my hat to some spirituality, and leave the rest of the nonsense to be avenged at a later date by someone or some power that has the ability to make that happened.
