Knock Off Your Religious Pride

There are few things that annoy me as much as Christians that justify being abrasive and unkind because they are practicing the tenets of their religion.  I think the reason why it annoys me so much is that on more than one occasion I have been on the receiving end of what I would call “holy condemnation”.  It comes under the guise of “being real” or “being honest”.  People use their honesty to bash people over the heads and then say that they are just being honest.  If you have a problem with their honesty then you actually have a problem with God.  Or so they would have you believe.  Because they are just “telling the truth” or “telling it like it is”.  There is an incredible problem with this line of thought.  The problem is that Jesus never did it.

Jesus didn’t approach people on the street and belittle them or harp on them because they didn’t follow the straight and narrow.  What did Jesus say about how he approached spreading the Gospel?  “Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.”  Jesus waited on the Holy Spirit to instruct him on how he should handle matters with people around him.

The problem with Christians that do this garbage is that they always want to justify their actions by becoming indignant.  They want to draw a picture of themselves as a martyr of sorts.  It’s almost like if you look close enough they are hanging on the cross themselves.  You need to get over yourselves and be honest.  Because if you want me to believe that you can be honest with others you need to start by being honest with yourself.  The fact that you are admittedly impatient, abusive and relatively unforgiving person tells me that your indignant stance is not one rooted in the heavens; It is rooted in your pride and your ego.  You aren’t preaching Jesus when you do that.  You need to get over yourself and stop trying to bait people into telling you what you want to hear.  Just because you have a coalition doesn’t make you right.  You are using it as an excuse to keep being a religious bigot.

If you are feeling like this it’s because you’re out of alignment.  Jesus said not to throw your pearls at swine.  If you have been throwing your pearls at pigs then you have nobody to be mad at except yourself.  Now that’s being honest.  That’s telling it like it is.  You need to get over yourself and stop trying to live in your delusional pseudo-religious bubble.  You made bro?  I hope so because it means that I have touched the right spot.
