I’ve ranted about a lot of things I dislike about Christians. So much so, even family members have begun writing to me. One of the emails I received was from a woman who never stopped praying for me the entire time I produced porn. In part of her email she said:
Maybe I could also encourage you to try not to be too judgmental of judgmental people, if that makes sense. Everyone is at different spots in their journey and I’ve learned that God gives us gobs of grace! Seems like the more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know. There’s a verse in Psalms that says that God is gracious and slow to anger, full of compassion and of great mercy. Anyway, He is thrilled to have you home where you belong and your story has already touched so many people! Don’t forget to take care of yourself and get help when you need it!
I really should have been picking my words a little more carefully and not lumping so many people into one group. I know I’ll never stop raising issues that annoy me, but I have no problem proof reading my blog entries a little more, searching for ways to tone down my tendency to stereotype Christians. It’s funny how appropriate the title has become for this blog. Donny’s Ramblings, in which I rambling endlessly about random topics. I will admit, I have been meeting so many like minded Christians since September 25th. From the emails I’m receiving, it appears many churches are moving in the right direction, concentrating on becoming more like Christ and less like Pharisees. I’m encouraged and am confident that movement will continue. It is very exciting to see this happing!
In regards to being judgmental about judgmental people: POINT TAKEN! And I thank you for pointing it out.
