Truly, Anne Rice’s comments on ‘quitting Christianity’ have stirred a great debate. I’m thankful for every comment left on my blog and Facebook yesterday. Personally, it’s helped me gain perspective. Hopefully is has caused each us to examine our lives, think about what we truly believe, and see if our actions and behaviors are consistent with those beliefs.
So no matter what we do or what we call ourselves, sooner or later that group will break down.
Yes, my paradigm is blown from what I though Christianity was growing up. I was taught that being a Christian meant going to church on Sunday, singing a few hymns, and listening to a preacher for an hour. That was it. I don’t believe in that kind of Christianity anymore.
I am more committed to Jesus Christ and his teachings than ever before. I believe in following HIm and following Him means to live like he lived: caring for the poor, loving my neighbor, giving sacrificially to those in need, embodying compassion, living for justice, forgiving, etc. If that’s what we were known for, nobody would really care what we called ourselves. I think that is what Anne is after.
Please read the entire article and tell me what you think about Brian’s thoughts.
