    Beware of the Cynic! She Wants You to Question Your Walk with Christ

    PI ladies, on your journey to be more Christ-like, you’ll likely meet many cynics. A cynic is defined as someone who “believes all people are motivated by selfishness and whose outlook is scornfully and often habitually negative.”

    As a Christian, you have a responsibility to follow Christ based on His commandments, and that takes discipline. But cynics usually lack that close relationship with Christ. They are skeptical that it even exists! And so they often criticize, belittle and mock Christians who strive to please God. Does this sound like someone you know?

    There are many reasons people are cynical about Christians and Christian values. Some cynics are afraid of Christianity–they don’t understand it. Others are jealous. They want to have a relationship with Christ and may say they’re Christians, but they can’t give up their worldly ways. Maybe some just don’t like Christians because of differences in opinion and beliefs.

    Whatever her reasoning, beware of the cynic. Don’t let her bring you down or cause you to question your walk with Christ. Instead, pray for the cynic, because she often feels lost.

    It’s difficult to convince a cynic that certain Christian values–such as modesty, purity and courting–are God’s expectations. Because usually, a cynic wants to convince you that you’re just plain wrong. While questioning your faith in an attempt to understand it more is fine, challenging it with disgust and a desire to discredit it is not.

    Ladies, do you know anyone who is skeptical about everything Christian?
