Majoring on the Minors


A new friend was sharing about a loves ones brand of faith. Everything was outward and judgmental. So and so wore slacks in church, how disgraceful; the choir directors hair is too long, you did'nt do this right, you did'nt say that right.

I heard a video and song this morning in which the singer was expressing to a number of people sorrow for what the church had done to them.

Whatever that spirit is in people, we have reached a place in time here in this country when people just are no longer willing to take that kind of spiritual abuse in order to be around the majority that are good and gracious. It's like a few bad apples or a few twisted world views are causing a great movement to implode.

Its a new day, and the rigid spirit must fade.

About 20 years ago I got involved in a church (Presbyterian) where the leadership of the woman's group were so judgemental that I was turned off attending church for several years. Through Tricia's friendship I discovered a church where everyone was accepted and judgement was left to the Lord. I thank God that I was pushed in the direction. The trouble now is that attendence especially of young people is so poor in this area. This is true in my own family and I don't know how we will turn it around.Love Judy
