Part of my moving away from you is for the following reason: you embarrass me.
I am embarrassed when people point out the fact that you are divided into so many denominations.
I am embarrassed when you preach love, but condemn gays, addicts, and other religions.
I am embarrassed that serving the poor is not a priority to you as “saving souls” .
I am embarrassed when you raise your hands to worship God, but keep them in your pockets when a homeless shows you a sign.
I am embarrassed that you identify yourself as the “body of Christ”, but lack presence in the world.
I am embarrassed by your lack of mercy and transparency.
I am embarrassed by your passion for filling up pews, but not filling up the stomachs of needy families.
I am embarrassed by your fervent attempt to defend your faith, but not defend the victims of discrimination.
I am NOT embarrassed by the Gospel, which is to love one another as ourselves, but by you, for failing to live the Gospel.
A Reflective Christian.
