Standing in a garage doesn’t make you a car, just like going to church doesn’t make you a Christian. Several people claim to be the perfect role-model, but they’re not. There are many different types of people that go to church: the “I only go to church on Easter and Christmas” folks, the kids who only go when there’s going to be free food and pretty girls, and then the people who never miss a Sunday and truly live their life for God. All of these people are going to church, and that is definitely a plus. They just need to get their intentions and priorities straight.
Those people that only go to church once under a blue moon, and claim they’re God’s gift to this earth, are wrong. You shouldn’t only go to church because it’s a holiday; you should live for God everyday! I’m not saying they should be judged though; at least they’re making an effort. The thing that is most bothersome to me is that these “holiday church goers” think they are so much better than everyone else. Well I have news for them, God really doesn’t care about the day you go to church; He just wants you to be there to follow Him as much as possible. I’m glad that they do go to church sometimes though, because it plants a seed deep in their hearts. Then maybe the next time they come, that seed will be watered, and they can grow into stronger Christians.
Now I’m not quite sure who gets written off as worse…the kids that come to grab a burger and pick up a girl’s number or the “holiday goers”. I find those shallow kids completely lame. If you’re only coming to church for fun, then your priorities are in the wrong place. I’m not saying church isn’t fun, but if your hearts in it you will be there to worship Christ. Participating in a church activity should be something you want to do to further your relationship with Christ, not the girl next door.
Then, after all of those people there are the Christians that almost never fail to brighten your day. You know like that woman you hug on Sunday and...
