Getting up on the wrong side of the bed is a phrase that has come to describe a day gone bad. I would like to modify this with a new phrase ‘Getting up on the wrong side of faith’ (which from now on will be referred to as WSOFs) to describe moments of faith gone bad.
Anytime we tweak God's perfect plan with our 'man divined' <-oxymoron methods we are headed in for a bumpy road.
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.
