As John Martin at WRCB reported on the story of the Tweets sent out on the EPB account I immediately began to be upset.
In digesting this I now have to say that I am thankful for this one who showed forth more faith than most so called Evangelical Christians.
You may ask why and so let me tell you.
First off the Bible tells us that in these last days that there will be scoffers and we will experience persecution for the person who we believe came as the Savior of the world thus fulfilling prophecy.
I feel that as he or she typed this, what most would feel offensive, confirms the scriptures that the words spoken (or may I say typed) is the revelation of the heart and furthermore it was by the faith of the one responsible in that which they have been taught or indoctrinated believes. See all have a measure of faith and as one is presented with information we either take it as truth or discard it as fables or fairy tales. Faith as defined by the Word of God is something hoped for but not seen but we must take it one step further that we act upon, either by one words or actions, on such belief.
Now we don’t understand this intolerance or what you may say prejudice against churches and Christians but we do understand that people do not learn in a vacuum. One of the most powerful things we a humans experience is to learn. To have knowledge, which are things learned, can either be constructive or destructive. As we understand Christianity it is truly a religion based on God’s love for man, man’s love for God and furthermore a love for others.
Now I’m a realist and I know that there are examples of abuses of Christianity on people but for most it is about the relationship with God through Jesus and looking out for the physical and spiritual needs of all. The problem that we have is that we have allowed others to define Christianity based on personal views without any experience or understanding which the Word of God brings. Too many base their opinion of God and Christianity on those teachers and professors or should I say “Priest of the Temple of Knowledge and Human Secularism”. As I said earlier no one learns in a vacuum and as teachers have the time and the opportunity to not only teach information but also indoctrinate impressionable minds with their beliefs void of God.
So I do applauded this anonymous person in speaking their faith and I’m sure that the EPB knows who it is and is in damage control. I warn the EPB that they must address this no differently than any other act of prejudice allowing the one responsible to fess up and suffer the consequences as deemed by EPB.
Now I know that we have seen “sensitivity training” and it being mandated for not only the guilty but furthermore all employees in dealing with prejudice. I hope that this is an isolated person and not a culture of Anti-Christianity at the EPB.
In closing I challenge not only this person but all to begin their “Sensitivity Training” by reading First John (not the Gospel of John) to have a better understanding of those of us who believe in the fairy tale of the Man Jesus Christ.
