    Throughout the history of mankind God has been trying to break down the barriers between Himself and man so that we might have a relationship with Him, but we continue to put up the barriers between ourselves and God.

Is Anyone Guilty?

As I read the headlines this morning a thought kept coming back to me and it is this:  “Is anyone really guilty?”  I mean, if you read the stories it seems to me that no one is guilty . . . except of course all of the people who are declaring that the people they’re talking about are guilty.  I mean, really?  I read about a man in Ohio who was executed this morning for murdering two people back in 1992.  He went into both of their apartments on two separate occasions to rob them, it seems to pay for his drug habit.  But, according to this man, part of the blame lies on the victims.  He never really explained what was their fault or how they were to blame.  According to the court transcripts when he broke into the apartment of the woman that he murdered, he turned the television volume up so that no one could hear her pleading for her life.  He never denied that he killed either of them, but somehow maintained to the end that they were partially at fault.  Interesting too, after he was injected with the drugs that would eventually take his life, one of the last things he said was, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  And that’s just one story.

Attitude

I’m a big Peanuts fan – you know, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and especially Snoopy.  Charles Schultz, the creator of the comic strip had a great sense of humor and timing.  One of my favorite strips shows Charlie Brown walking up to Snoopy, his dog, with a box in his hands and in the first panel he says, “This is the medicine that the vet said would be good for you.”  In the next panel he says “I have also heard however that laughter is the best medicine . . . .”  He looks at Snoopy and asks, “Which would you prefer?” to which Snoopy throws back his head and laughs “Ha Ha Ha Ha!”  In the last panel Charlie Brown is walking away and he says, “That was easy.”  Attitude is so very important!

Ordinary Christians

We live in an age of heroes, super heroes, stars, superstars, divas, celebrities, and people who think that their level of talent, money or fame afford them the privilege of being treated as special.  Of course being treated as special involves privilege, special access and accommodation.  And all of this means that there are many, many, many people who feel like they are above the rules, above the law and above every body else in the world.  Sadly, we have fostered this attitude in our society by treating people in such a way that they feel they deserve it.  I read an article today that talked about actors and actresses who no longer are sought after for movies because they became impossible to work with.  This came because of attitudes of privilege and expectation because they feel like they are better than everyone else.  And so they become impossible to work with, treating people as inferiors.  Then there are the athletes in our society who feel like they can get away with almost anything because of their ability to shoot, kick, hit, carry, pass or catch a ball.  It has become almost rare to find an athlete that will sign an autograph without charging money for the privilege of them writing their unintelligible scrawl on a piece of paper. Sadly, it isn’t just athletes or movie stars or celebrities that act this way.  Unfortunately we find it in the church world as well. Which leads me to a short paragraph I cam across again today that I wanted to share.
