- The Crusades are a BIG TIME example of getting up on the wrong side of faith. Religious wars sanctioned by the Church was maybe not such a good idea.
- The Salem Witch Trials were another not so bright and shining moment ‘executed’ (insert pun here) by organized religion. .. and dare I say
- Snake Handling is not on the radar of what the Lord intends. Nuff said.
So without further delay let me present a few WSOFs that I find too commonplace in the church today.
So put down that snake, stop 'redacting' scriptures you don't like, and quit pointing out the 'denominational specks' in the eyes of others all whilst fashioning a light pole in your own eye.
Instead .. love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. ..and love your neighbor as yourself. - Jesus Mt 22:36-40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets... which excludes Crusades, Witch hunts, and anything to that requires a snake bite kit.
May God bless and use us all in the unique ways He has wired us. May we listen to God's voice, and minimize our bunny trails in ways that honor God and serve others.
