Hello my name is Robert and I’ve been involved in ministry for 20 years. I want to take this opportunity to clarify a few things for you. First I want to apologize on behalf of the “persecuted Christians” who are attacking you and slinging hateful words at you. If you noticed my air quotes around the words persecuted Christians it’s because theses people do not represent the Jesus of the Bible and to be considered a true Christian you have to imitate Christ. But these people believe they can be “Christian” without being Christ-like. I know I’m as shocked as you. They want to be called followers without really following. Crazy ,I know. If they read their Bible,which is the instructions God gave us for living for him, they would see that Jesus said to love people. Everyone. Even our enemies. He told us to pray for people who persecuted us, which if taking Merry Christmas off coffee cups counts as persecution, makes you their enemy. PS it doesn’t. And if someone can afford a 5 dollar cup of coffee to begin with, they really have no idea what persecution really is. Try having your head cut off because you serve Jesus. Try watching your children murdered in front of you for not renouncing Christ. Now that we understand what persecution is, I will move on.
Jesus said that the world will know that we are his disciples by how we love each other, but they did not read that part either. Jesus commanded us not to judge people outside the church. He told us that was his job. The people attacking you did not get the memo. Sadly we are known more for what we stand against than who we stand for. For this I apologize. For this I am ashamed. I stand for Jesus. Jesus loves you. He died for you. That’s what we should focus on. But some “Christians” prefer to follow their own agenda. They are veneer Christians practicing veneer christianity. It looks decent from a distance but unlike the real thing, it’s thin and cheap like the faded Jesus loves you bumper sticker on the back of their cars. The Bible says we can give everything we have and be burned at the stake but if we don’t love, it was for nothing. But once again they did not read this either. It’s because they don’t have time to read their Bibles because they are too busy on social media writing hate filled status updates. Please don’t make a decision about Jesus based off these veneer christians. On behalf of Jesus, God bless and Merry Christmas.
