I am a different kind of Christian.......

I loathe it to the bone, whenever this statement is made directly or indirectly pointing at me as being a Christian."How come you Christians behave like that one, what for going to Church still acting in uncivilized ways"

My mom was so mad at a particular incident that involved her 20 + old grandson and another member of the family, there was some scuffle in term of some body contact and it was over some business issues, so she called me and over the phone she had already started swearing away with profanity,( i knew the situation was bad enough for a 70+ old woman swearing and cursing away), and that particular member that got the bombardment from her happens to be sharing the same faith like i do.

So over the phone i could litterally hearing her calling names, cursing away and it was just bad and she was hoping that i could warn that family member (who happens to be Christian) to not touch her grandson again and she was eager for me to do that for her.

I said to her that i could not do that for her as I did not even know what excatly happened and it would be very unfair to proclaim someone gulity without being found guilty, that's just not me /
lah.

Sensing my unwillingness to stand on her side, then she began to insinuate that I was protecting that particular member who happened to be a Christian like i was so she started her salvos in making general statement such like,"you same geng one lah, lousy Christian, my friends Christians are so good unlike that bastard blah blah blah blah"

On a hindsight, the whole problem was just some business disputes involving two right thinking or wrong thinking adults,that's all but the real problem was someone jumping the gun without checking or finding out the truth,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Just digress a bit,the other day a friend was commenting this about me," You what kind of Christian, can wear earing one kah ?"

P/S : Yes I am a Christian and I am a humanly Christian currently under construction to be a better one..............and I am willing to be reconstructed

  1. When we become a christian, God did not promises us a bed of roses.(even the rose has thorn too hor?) unkind remarks are expected. They think christian are angels ,but we know better dont we. we are just a human as them. maybe their expectation of Christian is too high and expect us to do certain things and when we don't we are bombard with all kinds of unkind words.
    just hang in there Bro.remember one thing when no one understand you, there is one person who does Jesus!

  3. Not only you.. I am afraid many of us and others have the same comment thrown at us now and then... sigh.. that is why being a christian has its tribulations, this is part of it.. we are not Holier than Thou.. what makes us different is that we have God in us, for us and with us.. we need not fear none other...
    As for our behavior, we are answerable to our God Himself.. we are not saints.. :)
    God Bless You, Brother!

  9. Hahhaha! So they just think that we are holy and do things rationally and not been influenced by others. Well, we are just human being like them too. Nothing wrong for a Christian to have earrings right? My hubby is a Christian and he got tatoo on his arm. Does that make him un-Christian??

  10. Never argue with the elderly. In all times, respect and love them. Love them. We just keep quiet. Surprisingly, this works for me. Because no matter what, they are our zhang pei.

  12. Brother, I want to encourage you that our God sees deep in our hearts, the unspoken thoughts which is unlike what humans can. We human judged by looks, perception, gossip and what nots, but God told us not to judge.

    God bless you.
