Well here’s a set of rules to follow – a list of do’s and don’ts.
– Dress like this…
– Only read ‘this’ kind of Bible
– Don’t do this, this or that…
– And oh, only come to ‘our kind of church’. All the others don’t have it right.
Alternate response – Well great. You have chosen to start a relationship with the most exciting Being in all the universe.
You have opted to take God up on His offer.
You have started a life adventure and a daily walk with the God who loves you so much!
Let me help you along the way.
Obviously the above are two very different ways of looking at being a Christian.
Obviously you can tell I’m not real impressed with the first response and probably exaggerated it – And, oh by the way, some of the things mentioned aren’t actually said, just implied.
I was simply trying to make a point…
What is that point?? Being a Christian is not a set of rules to follow.
Rather it is about having a relationship with Jesus, and walking every day with Him. Now that’s an exciting thought!
