Look, you are going to get hurt in the church. You will be offended. Churches are hospitals for broken sinners in need of saving. How we handle it depends on and shows our maturity level.
One day a man came running up to us. He stopped, gasping for air. In between breaths, he told us he was from Bethany. A town about a mile away from Jerusalem. A town we've been avoiding since there were people there plotting to kill Jesus. "I must speak with Jesus," he said. "Why," Peter asked, looking at the man suspiciously. "Lazarus is sick!"
Are you fake? Do you say that you believe one thing but act contrary to it? This post is going to be a bit confrontational.
Note: This series is written as a first-person narrative to present Jesus in the context he walked in with the unknown disciple that narrates introducing my thoughts and sparking more ideas with his questions. Enjoy.
