What are the consequences?


.

In admitting to no longer calling myself a Christian … what are the consequences?

 

And before you answer –

.

This comes to mind.

.

.

And this …

“Preach the gospel at all times, and where necessary use words.”
St Francis of Assisi

.

And this:

“Though we cannot think alike may we not love alike?”
John Wesley

.

Or this …

“If we have got the true love of God shed abroad in our hearts,
we will show it in our lives.
We will not have to go up and down the earth proclaiming it.
We will show it in everything we say or do.”
Dwight L. Moody

.

What about this:

“Do not waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbor;
Act as if you did.”
C.S. Lewis

.

And this:

“You can always give without loving, but you can never love without giving.”
Amy Carmichael

.

Or this …

“The world does not understand theology or dogma,
But it understands love and sympathy.”
Dwight L. Moody

.

All of that and maybe

more than

THIS …

.

‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

.

(because THAT was in response
to THIS direct question:
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”)

.

.

In admitting to no longer calling myself a Christian … what are the consequences?

.

.

JUST THIS

.

.

I don’t want anyone to stand up at my funeral and say

“he was a great Christian” …

.

I want them to say …

.

THIS …

.
