Oh, sure, there are plenty of topics that get beaten like a Dead Horse in the Christian blogsphere, but these are the top seven that really annoy me (in no particular order):
Creationisim vs. Darwinisim vs. Intelligent Design
The Death Penalty
Why do they annoy me? Because Christians can’t seem to get beyond them to get anything done. No, we think it’s more fun to sit around and whine that So-and-so’s mean to me because they don’t respect my Annointing of the Holy Spirit/Right to Exist and therefore I can’t work with them. And we stay stuck in our own little boxes, and we can’t even admit there might be a middle way between the two of us.
Yes, I’ve been guilty of this, too. Mea culpa, and I repent, I turn away from the sin of pride that keeps me from embracing my sibling whose opinions are fundamentally different than mine.
Oh, sure, typing the words is the easy part. Now I’m going to have to stick to it, and actually see if I can’t at least see the middle way, if not adopt it.
Lord, give me strength!
