This morning I turned the radio on and there was a discussion about church and tithing. A caller phoned in and conveyed her opinion to the host and the audience. Afterwards the host responded with something and the caller said, “but I am an Anglican, I am a Christian, an Anglican”. I can’t remember anything else from the broadcast except her statement and how proud we are to announce what brand of Christian we are: "I am a Catholic", "I am an Anglican", "I am born again and we have drums at our church".
A friend recently said to me the charismatic’s have got it wrong and his movement, the fundamentalists, have got it right. I asked him if he was smoking the good stuff because I wanted some. They have got it right? It’s an arrogance exacerbated by many Christian’s across the world that I believe is born out of an insecurity that one little thing we believe about Christianity could be wrong. In my very limited understanding of the beautiful God we live and love with, and Jesus who came to make things more clear for us, it’s my understanding that God sees and judges a heart. Not your denomination, not what you say you believe but what your intentions are. Please, again, correct me if I’m wrong.
