The stench of some Christians….(A rant from my fingers…)
This morning I was out with one of my Franciscan Sisters and we decided to call into see how a local Christian Community was doing? First mistake! OMG…what we found was a holy huddle who neither greeted us or took time out from their most holy prayer/bible reading…to welcome us! We felt so unwelcome that I was almost physically sick from the stench of their religious piety! If we were complete strangers…heavens knows what would have happened! But we knew most of the folk there, but all were somehow mesmerised into a kind of stupor, that was so indicative of a very controlling spirit! There was no fruit of joy, or love or kindness…no, there was no fruit other than a bitter imitation, which seemed to be devoured by those present! I was reminded of Matthew 10: 40 where Jesus tells us that those who welcome you welcome me…but there was no welcome! And then again in the Good News of Matthew: verses 5 – 6 Jesus reminds us about praying and where to pray… instead of putting on such external shows of sanctimonious piety…we should go into the closet and close the doors so that it is done in secret…(oh.. but what if we are interrupted..?)….I think it is something about loving others and welcoming others and caring for others and feeding others………..!
Well, these Christian really love one another and show it so beautifully, don’t they…!??????? I think I prefer atheists than these stinkers!
Please bring me a bucket…. the stench is disgusting!
