I guess by strict definitions I am a protestant, but technically more of a protestant MUTT with a dash of Catholicism. Actually I would like to be simply defined as a CHRISTIAN thank you very much as I don't fit nicely into any denominational box.
Don't get me wrong I am not judging anyone else choice of 'box' though I am a little concerned if you are into SNAKE HANDLING.. but I digress BIG TIME.
No matter your flavor of faith as long as you 1. Love God, and 2. Care for Others while using your Bible as your guide I think God will be pretty pretty pleased.
The next challenge is living our faith out in our POST MODERN SOCIETY.
We have the internet which is an incredible resource for light (faith, family, friends, news, etc) and dark (anger, porn, etc ) with the evolving social media explosion becoming the rage. We text, we blog (sounds like a horror movie.. the attack of the 50' blog), we facebook, and we tweet.
When we are not on the computer we are on our cellphones, smartphones, Ipads n Tablets or we are surfing HD TV with a bazillion (I counted) channels to choose from. We get our meals and our high buck coffees and lattes through a drive through window. So why not do this with our faith? We can, and we do.
I can watch most any sermon from my mega-pastor and many every day joe pastor of choice from the convenience of my office chair while donning gym shorts and a tank top and bed hair... all while the coffee pot and a kitchen full of my foods is 20' from where I sit. ISN'T LIFE GRAND?
Ok, this is NOT a call for the huddled church masses to quit attending a good local church I am JUST SAYIN' this post modern protestant life I live is not all bad.
I tweet with other believers and ministries, I facebook with friends and family and people I have not seen in years. I do enjoy my drive thru latte a couple times a week. I have this website/blog to share my faith and cartoons.
My prayer is to not go kicking and screaming into this post modern faith world, but to embrace it and use it for the glory of God, for personal growth, and to encourage others...
Loving God and Caring for others in this Post Modern World. Who knew could coexist.
