6 comments on “Scriptures That Bother Me — 1 John 2:9-10

  1. There’s a lyric of a band named Casting Crowns which comes to mind:

    It’s crowded in worship today
    As she slips in
    Trying to fade into the faces
    The girls’ teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
    Farther than they know

    But if we are the Body
    Why aren’t His arms reaching
    Why aren’t His hands healing
    Why aren’t His words teaching
    And if we are the Body
    Why aren’t His feet going
    Why is His love not showing them there is a way
    There is a way

    A traveler is far away from home
    He sheds his coat
    And quietly sinks into the back row
    The weight of their judgmental glances tells him that his chances
    Are better out on the road ( But if…)

    Jesus paid much too high a price
    For us to pick and choose who should come
    And we are the Body of Christ ( But if…)

  2. May I ask . . . it certainly isn;t the first thing that should come up. But don’t you think a minister should try, mildly to help them patch up their relationship? Wouldn’t asking ‘who am I’ become a dereliction of duty?

  3. I don’t have a response! I will say…”I am so glad to see you’re still writing!” Keep do doing what you’re doing!
