The more I study the Christian belief system, the more I am amazed at the illogical stance of mainstream Christianity’s beliefs. It is no wonder to me, anymore, why many of the world’s peoples look upon Christians as duped and ignorant, unwilling to see the logic of what they espouse. Most of my former “Christian friends” in the reformed tradition (specifically Baptist) rail, as I did, against anything mystical, yet then support their whole belief system by mystical things. For instance, I used to deny the validity of any Christian writer who claimed to be inspired by God to write things that were not spoken about in the Bible. Yet, I had easily believed that the books written in the collection of 66 books we call the Bible today were not only inspired, but totally infallible and inerrant in every jot and tittle penned. Logic tells us that God used more than just a few men to speak inspirationally to all mankind throughout all of history. And, though I may not be understood in the last statement by all who read this, and my belief in God may be questioned, I would like you to seriously read the blog article in the following link, as this will hopefully open a few minds up to what I am driving at.
Gary Amirault has written an article the other day and posted it on his Tentmaker.org blog site. I provide the link here called Spiritual Rape. Think about the logic of what he says in this article. Get your mind past an “offensive” statement he might make that cuts across your feelings. It is a short 4 paragraphs long and will take you a couple minutes, at most, to read. the implications are very stark and applicable to all who call themselves Christians. Take off your denominational, or non-denominational denomination glasses, and THINK!
