An interesting post appeared on Facebook recently that caught our eye. It was a poster that said, “We will never change the world by going to church. We will only change the world by being the church.” (emphasis added) If we knew the author, she/he would be credited here.
We have all known dozens of people in our lives who attend the church/synagogue/mosque of their choice, and profess their deep faith openly… and then their actions don’t match up with
their words. It almost borders on lying. Not telling the truth. It’s like the five year old bully on the playground professing he didn’t mean to hurt his playmate when he roughly pushed the younger, smaller child to the ground. “I’m a good kid who was only playing.”
