Non-Christians, do not read this. It will be depressing.
A few weeks ago I told my family that wearing a mask would become a “fellowship issue” among Christians. Last week I told a few others the same thing.
In the past two days I have seen this exact thing happen all over Social Media. It is disappointing. It is saddening.
Churches are already divided among races: white churches, black churches, Asian churches, Korean churches, Hispanic churches, etc. This is also disappointing. It is saddening.
Now, we are in a worldwide panic over a virus. Honestly, I do not care what you think about masks. I mean that in a nice way, but I really do not care.
For years, Christians have divided over stupid stuff: color of carpet, which songbook to use, translations, steeple or no steeple, Bible class or no Bible class Communion tray lids on or off when you pray, and the list could go on.
Now, fellowship is being broken over masks.
The first century church dealt with real persecution, real death because of beliefs and real hatred.
What have we come to? What will we allow to get in our way among our brethren?
The world is watching. The world needs Christians to be lights now more than ever.
We, as a people are more scared of a virus than we are of going to Hell. Think about that.
I heard a few years ago that “there are things worse than death.” Remember that.
That is all. Go resume your bickering on Facebook now.
To my non-Christian friends, I am sorry you have to see Christians bickering like spoiled little children. Please accept my apologies.
“This world is not my home, I’m just a passin’ through…”
Just a thought,
