The Fancy Shell Game

I’d like to say I am baffled.  But I know that’s not true.  I understand perfectly well.

What the modern Church means when they say, “I have given my life to Jesus”, is that they have given some of it but retain rights over the majority of their desires.

They like being a social chameleon.  They think they can be a Christian and while they fit right into everything the world says is important.  That’s no different than being a filthy drunk and loving the song “Believe” by Brooks & Dunn.  Liking a popular song does not make you a Christian.

I am not confused.  I am not baffled by their shell game.  And I promise you, neither is the Lord Jesus.

Mark 8:38
(reluctant to do something through fear of embarrassment or humiliation)
