That Weird Kinda Christian

I'm that weird kinda Christian that doesn't believe in going to heaven, but that Jesus is working on making the earth livable for all.

I'm that Christian that doesn't believe that the Bible is the word of God.  But Jesus is. 

I'm the kinda Christian that thinks Jesus grants peace, not to those who believes in Christianity, but to those who act like Jesus, no matter what they believe.

I'm the kinda Christian who thinks we can do Jesus work through giving and sacrifice, not through comfort.

I'm the kinda Christian who thinks that nothing can be solved through arguing doctrine, or debating over the "right" leaders. Rather, all things can be solved through well-planned, compassionate love.

I'm the kinda Christian who thinks that the only decent church to go to isn't the one with perfect doctrine, or the one that meets our needs, but rather the one that has a workable strategy to help the poor.

Yeah, that's me.  What kinda Christian are you?

You Are Here

I think God on occasion looks down at us and things to himself, "You know, that planet is really noisy. The universe would be so much quieter if I just stopped giving them life every moment."
Then he shakes his head and says, "Yeah, they're irritating. But I like 'em."
And he lets us continue on.
