Nonsense-in-Jesus-Name

The following linked article is taken from the blog of Greg Boyd.  I believe that Boyd is  right when he says, “..if followers of Jesus don’t  publically distance themselves from  nonsense-in-Jesus- name, then non believers naturally assume that buying into this nonsense is simply what Jesus’ followers do.”   The trouble is that all of us can so easily misrepresent the heart of God because we speak out of our brokenness and often out of a self centred righteousness that makes us so ‘right’ whilst really being so pitifully blind and deaf to Holy Spirit.

  1. Absolutely right Michael. that was a very good blog.

    Why does this question of sexual orientation matter so much? What does it matter if a person is sexually drawn to the same sex? That is not too advance sodomy but nor is it to advance holier than thou attitudes from a sexual majority. Why do so many people that profess Christ Jesus as Lord still insist on seeing the speck in their neigbours eye when there is a plank in their own?

    I don’t know . . could make a few good guesses though.
