Right, gotta be more on point this time!
It’s so easy to get carried away isn’t it?
So, just a quick recap…
I have decided to respond to, “tweets” sent to Richard Dawkins with the hashtag #Imanatheistbecause.
Without further ado, let’s jump straight in with this one:
- The leaders at this person’s Church were incompetent and taught a fundamentally flawed doctrine of salvation.
- This person has drastically misunderstood the doctrine of salvation.
- That is you up there in that picture! You are separated from God by a huge gaping chasm of sin. But, don’t worry, we’re all in that position, you’re not alone!
- God has come up with a way for us to be reconciled to him, through Christ
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18)
- Accept this gift from God…… this is the easy bit, it’s a free gift (the best we’ll ever receive)
That’s it, your names down on the list….
So you see… Despite wether this is a misinterpretation on the tweeter’s part, the Church who taught him about it or whatever, the point was lost in translation.
It isn’t a message of: If you’re not a christian you will burn in hell, that is such a warped interpretation.
The truth is much more elegant and beautiful. God loves us, always has, always will; we overlooked that in favour of self gratification. We rejected God. God says, that’s cool, if you want that then you can have that for eternity. However, if you want to regain that original relationship, you can do it simply by receiving the gift of Christ on the cross.
I’ve done it again haven’t I?
I picked out a simple one at the start with the hope of having time and space for a few tweets and responses but, i’ve gone off on one!
Consider this a bonus, it means you will get loads more posts! You lucky so and so’s…
