  1. Wow! I must say… excellent speech. I feel like sharing this with others. It’s a lot to think about.

  2. I’ve seen this video before, and I actually agree with this guy on a lot of what he says and I’m bereaved at what some charlatans have done in the name of Christ.

    Interestingly enough, Jesus also called out hypocrites… in fact, he reserved his harshest words for them.

    • Thanks for popping by. I know this site will not be your cup of tea. When we allow ourselves to believe we are doing god’s work rather than our own – and for reasons that we must defend against legitimate criticism – then I think the ‘hypocrites’ look and sound exactly like those you think do not abuse in the name of Christ. And that is the problem.

  3. It is indeed a problem, and find many Christians are saying so. But I’ve written before about how hypocrites who are (supposedly) of the Christian faith cannot be used as an argument against it, just as I’m sure you wouldn’t accept hypocrites of atheism being used as an argument against it.
