John 8:7 – And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”
Just because certain people aren’t running around with their hands in the air shouting Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, and Thank You, Jesus, does not mean they are not people of faith.
I am a person of faith. My relationship with God is personal. I have friends – devout Christians and Jews – who have prayed for me on more than one occasion. If prayers get you to Heaven then I’ve got my one-way ticket come Judgment Day.
Anyway, it is quite clear that if you don’t do the Christian boogaloo according to the gospel of certain folks then you are not true believers. There are those who would not know a Christian value or the polite, kind way to treat another person if it bit them on the ass.
Is it their job to roam the Internet looking for people to stone to death because – wait for it – they are good and fine upstanding members of the community, and as God as my witness, they are good Christians?
I don’t know what Bible some of you read, but I’m beginning to think there are those who have a Jim Jones mentality.
Warning: Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.
Thus endeth the lesson.
