A Companion of Jesus

Love One Another as I Have Loved You!

Having read recent articles attacking Rob Bell and Pope Francis in the online rag ‘Charisma News’ and more recently in the so-called evangelical ‘Christian Post’, I find it terribly sad and telling that the first Christians were known by their love for one another….and now Christians are known by their vitriolic finger-pointing, stone throwing, accusatory damnation of the brethren…especially those accused of being deceptive false teachers! Once Jesus said He would build His Church..but now Christians are building it, in fact have been doing so for a long time (check out its history of those defending scripture, theology and doctrine..and you think ISIS is bad!) as they know better and seemingly can’t trust the Lord to finish His work! Jesus gave us one commandment, “Love one another as I have loved you”…simple!…. But O No…we can’t just do that…we need to bring people into submission to our interpretation of Holy Writ and condemn all whom we consider are misrepresenting our take on The Truth! Thousands have been brutally murdered by having their heads cut off, burnt at the stake, or by being hung drawn and quartered, because the Bible gave some Christians the idea that they were the builders of the Church and their interpretation was infallible! Now we don’t burn people or behead them..at least not in the name of Christ….but we seek to destroy them (though we call it ‘saving’ them) by destroying their character and name through the media.
