I Think Most Real Christians Don't Even Know They Are Christian ...
... I meet the greatest folks doing good deeds all the time and I know they have been called. But if you call them a Christian or Christ-like - they laugh - their education tells them that is a myth.

But I have a theory that you can pray all you want, but Christ or God or however you define it, calls you. It's not a choice or a decision you make, it's above you, comparable to winning the lottery.

But in my mind this lottery isn't like being given mansions, money or land, it's being called to serve in your own way, the way that you understand. And yes, there are blessings, but not how the world defines blessings, but definitely blessings.

I've held this theory for a long time. Real Christians don't thump the bible and condemn - real Christians do the work and only judge others to determine their own path.

I suppose this is radical in a world that is so divided, but look in your own life. Did you do something good today that you don't want to brag about. Maybe loaned that guy, with a few kids and a sick wife, some money - no interest and no care if you see it come back?

Did you help an old lady load her groceries? Or help a kid find their parent? Did you pick up a bit of trash or tell someone they looked beautiful?

Did you shine in your way today?

There are a lot of rules in this world - not just laws, but rules - as to what is acceptable behavior. Those that were called pay no attention to the rules, but they never harm.

I think most real Christians have no idea that is what they are - they just are - charitable, caring and bestowing the best they have on others.

The world has a lot of labels - too damn many labels.

Keep shining and helping as you can.

omfg this is stupid.


Religion != morality

Morality and being a good person can happen on it's own. Without brainwashing, tithes or mental dominance and control.
