You know what I'm so tired of?

Appologizing for Jesus..

Let me explain. I feel like, as Christians we tend to hold back, to hide behind our beliefs and faiths because we're scared that if we share Jesus with other people we'll offend them, we'll scare them off.

we say, "Yea I believe in Jesus, but I don't want to offend you! Yea Jesus is my saviour, he's everything to me, but that's just what I think, you don't have to agree" And we cower away, scared that we upset them. WHY?? Are we so ashamed of Jesus?

Why is it, that people get offended when they hear the name Jesus. But people can go around the streets professing their beliefs in other religions. Buddaism is excepted, Hindus are praised, Islam is normal etc. Nobody's offended by those religion. Yet as soon as Jesus is pulled out of the little box we like to keep in (Church on sunday, prayer before meals etc) people get mad. It's because Jesus is truth. And truth scares people.

Well, if we keep on doing this, then how are we going to further the Kingdom of God?

I want to be done with this.

Take Jesus out of the box.. He is after all only the saviour of the world.. Or so we say... Right?? Do we really believe it?? If so, then show it

And i'm not appologizing for being bold!
