BuzzFeed has created this new video which attempts to break down some of the stereotypes that surround Christians and Christianity as a whole.
The video was quite interesting and telling, but don’t take my word for it. Take a look for yourself:
Now, I’m not doubting that these individuals are Christians, nor am I here to ridicule them. They are like most of our peers. Though the people they “interviewed” for this video seem to have the same stance on major controversial issues within the Church, I’m not going to talk about that here. What’s shocking about this video is the surprising omission of Jesus. Yes BuzzFeed, Jesus.
Jesus seems to be missing a lot these days. You see the Bible, well Jesus, does say “to love your neighbor as yourself”, but what does it say first? Love God with your whole heart, soul and mind. For all I know, these individuals did say that, but BuzzFeed edited it out. I don’t know. But reading some of the comments on this video and the surprising amount of “amens” beaming from my social streams, I’m a bit taken back. As a Christian, I shouldn’t have to remind people what Christianity is about.
So, PI let’s not condemn this video. I do think there are some good parts about it. Heck, it’s opening up a conversation about Christianity in a somewhat positive light. But, let me be clear….
CHRIST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF CHRISTIANITY.
Being a Christian is…. loving God first and allowing HIS love to seep into every aspect of your life.
Being a Christian is… knowing Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior.
Being a Christian is… not judging people for who they are.
Being a Christian is… admitting that we are all sinners.
Being a Christian is…. admitting that we’re not perfect.
Being a Christian is… loving our enemies even when it’s extremely hard to do.
Can you add to this?
I’d love to see, because after watching this video I could REALLY use some more.
