The Blog Snob

I have become quite the lover of blogs. Not just my own blog but searching the net for other blogs. I am quite picky of the ones I decide to follow. Yes, I am a blog snob. I prefer to steer clear of the typical gossip and fashion blogs. I prefer blogs that are simple musings of some one's everyday life. Nothing fancy or riddled with ads. Just the day in the life of...

I have found a couple of relationship blogs, single mom blogs, local Atlantans blogs, a blog on budgeting, and a couple blogs from guys. Everyone has a different angle, a different vision for their blog, everyone giving a glimpse into their life according to, well them. The one thing I don't see much of are blogs from Christians. Sure there are plenty that proclaim to be God loving Christians but after reading a few posts...I am starting to wonder what God they serve.

I hate to say this but sometimes, being a Christian in every sense of the word, makes you a bit judgmental. Yes, Christians are judgmental despite the Bible being rather clear on not judging people. But we do. I have a problem with people that profess to be Christians, praising God when the situation deem fit, yet living their life by their own rules. Not saying I am a saint, very much far from it, but I have lived my life by my own rules for the majority of my life. I've known of Christ but it has only been in the past couple of years where I have really had a relationship with Him. It's this new found love and appreciation for the mere fact that Christ died so that I can have a life filled with blessings and joy that makes me turn away from living by my own rules. Yet, there are so many people that have an audience, claim to love God, yet still indulge in the very things that Christ died for and condemns to this day. No conviction, lukewarm "christians" seriously bother me. I am reading blogs by people that shout how much they love God, yet have a porn pick of the week and give instructions on how to give oral sex properly. One blog praises teeny bopper rapper Teyanna Taylor's purity ring, yet doesn't discourage pre-martial sex with couples.

I have a problem with people that can call themselves Christians, yet don't even live their lives as such. These are the very people that make many fall away from the church. I was having a joking conversation with a friend about going to church and she was quite honest about the fact that she doesn't attend because of the hypocrites that flock to church every Sunday. She is well aware that your own personal relationship with Christ is important but she doesn't realize that God wants us to worship together corporately with other believers who encompass the church. I have heard that very same reason from many people and unfortunately, there is not much you can do about the hypocrites that live behind the name of Christ. They will have their day of judgement and unfortunately many will hear "I never knew you."

Matthew 7:21-23 says “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'" I wish everyone that professes to follow Christ would take heed to what that means and act accordingly. Life is so short and truth be told, there are many people that are close to me that would not go to Heaven. No one wants to give up what feels good and all that comes with that in order to truly follow Christ. Few wants to stop having sex before marriage, feed the homeless, love others more than yourself, preach the gospel to those that probably wont listen, serve others, be apart of the church, or turn away from a host of other sins. The fun that people have now could quite possibly send them straight to Hell. Real talk.
