Are you Saved by the Lord?

Submitted by on October 10, 2005 – 10:10 am No Comment

Okay, probably this should not be here, but since I am not exactly MR FRIGGIN POLITICALLY CORRECT!, who gives a rat’s sac.

Don’t you just hate when people come up to you and ask – “so, what church do you go to my friend…..or are you save by the blood of the Lamb?”. Oftentimes I am caught offguard, as they expect you to, and wring out that stupid-ass grin of embrassment, but I am getting hip to the groove now. My response, now polished and always at the ready, is a qute and reflective one – “Religion is very personal to me I really try not to discuss it with other”. Now, the smart ones will realize that I am simply putting them off and they will pull back; but every now and then, you will get the “Challenger of Evil”…. the “Champion of Souls”…the fronline man/woman for the “Kingdom”…the “Aggressor” for God, and you simply got to be more upfront – “why don’t you just leave me alone…well maybe not so nice. You may have to throw in a few expletives here and there.

Now, don’t get me wrong – I don’t mind a good discourse in the finer points of going to heaven, but most of these high falutin’ (I think that’s close enuff to the word) idiots have no idea what they are talking about, so your conversation usually ends up deadlocked on some inexplicable area that they have no good explanation for… like the substance of “faith”. And most of this nigh illeterates will invariably try to start explaining without even understanding what the discussion is all about. After a few minutes or so, after they realize you are not going to breakout in tears and rebuke the world for its worldliness, they leave discourage, but resolute in their ignorance that there will be a next time.

You must give it to these folks tho. Some of them is so far gone that it is almost laffable to watch them spurt off verse by verse, with no true understanding of what they are talking about. And worse yet, they themselves don’t truly really believe either.

So, if you meet me – don’t ask me to church, as I would probably give you some smart ass answer. I don’t mind discussing religion in the context of life in general. And that includes all religion not just Christianity. Okay euff about religion in this area.
