Christian Pride

29Nov08

I think a lot of people are proud to be Christians. Like Christianity is our sports team and we must defend it against fans of a rival sports team or something. I mean, we really seem to enjoy “sticking it to the non-Christians”. I feel like we all celebrate when we’ve overpowered and humiliated the […]


I was reflecting on one of my favorite relationships earlier today and this is what I learned from it: It occurs to me that God’s love for us is very much like a man’s love for a very pretty, yet high-maintenance [read “prideful” or “a little full of herself”] woman. On the surface, it would […]
