The liberals believe that they are right and that they are on God's side on the questions of sexuality.
We, whether we are conservative or liberal or anywhere in between, believe we're so right that when someone doesn't see things the way we see things we can't help but think things like, "How can anyone who professes to love Jesus believe that this could be right?" or "How can anyone who professes to love Jesus Christ be so unloving?"
We believe we're so right about our view of things, that we are certain the other side is wrong.
- they are wrong in how they view and interpret scripture
- they are wrong in how they apply scripture
I wonder what it might be like if folks, instead of being so certain of how right they were just simply prayed and insisted, God let your will be done.
I wonder what our church might be like if our prayer was, "God do your will and if I am wrong, change my heart?"
I wonder what it might be like if there were less assertions and condemnations, and a whole lot more of humility and genuine openness that we - conservative, liberal, and everyone in between - could be wrong? So much so that we would be willing to change our views to match what God desires?
I wonder what our church would be like if there was a whole lot more of humility like that?
I wonder what God could do through a church like that?
Whatever you wish God, we will adjust and change to whatever you call us to...
