Walk the Talk

May our words and actions reflect the light of Love.

Psalm 50:16,19-20

But to the wicked God says: “Why do you recite my commandments and profess my covenant with your mouth? You give your mouth free rein for evil; you yoke your tongue to deceit. You sit and speak against your brother, slandering your mother’s son.”

One reason why young people today are staying away from churches in droves would undoubtedly be the tremendous hypocrisy of those who go to church.

Not everyone, of course, but many.

Young people see that those church-goers often recite commandments and profess beliefs…but then freely bad-mouth and ridicule others…whether in word, text or other social media.

They also support policies that in no way reflect being a follower of Jesus.

Thus the difference between Churchianity and Christianity.

Jesus saw the same hypocrisy in the religious leaders of his time, the Pharisees, who harshly enforced the letter of the law without regard to compassion.

The Love that made all things and is still creating…who many call God…is busy loving.

That’s what Love does.

If you are not taking part in loving…you are living in delusion.

Such people are unconscious of their calling to take part in the flow of God’s loving action.

Wake up!

Receive the light of Christ and then reflect it to the world!
