I wonder what I'll find out next!

This is Matthew Dominic Hunter's 'blog.

 

Christians want to feel "welcome"?


One of my partners told me of a fella who is upset because, as a Christian, he doesn't feel welcome in the gay community.

Well ... leaving aside the ongoing abuse of "Christianity" as an anti-gay weapon ... why is it that Christians desire to feel welcome in the first place? Was Jesus welcomed by his contemporaries? No, he was crucified. Were the Apostles welcomed? No, several of them were also put to death. What part of the New Testament leads modern-day Christians to believe that they ought to be welcomed by anybody?

Christianity, as taught by Jesus Christ, is a hard road. Don't expect people to think highly of you for following that road. Your reward, if any, will come after you die, not before.
