What is wrong with this ?

I have had many Christian friends post things similar to this on Facebook and of course they get a “like” from other Christians.

Dear God,

Bless my 2017 with turn arounds.  Turn my lack into plenty.  Turn my confusion into clarity.  Turn my test into a testimony.  Lord bless my 2017 with breakthroughs, miracles, and change.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen

My question to these Christians is where is their responsibility in this ?  They don’t seem to have any skin in the game.  And yet these same Christians will post all sorts of comments about those undeserving of welfare and how they should get a job.  I consider the plea above Christian Welfare.   They forgot to put the words “Help me” in front of these sentences in their plea to their God.

I’m not trying to bash Christians here, but they need to take a hard look at what they are posting.

  1. I think that’s sorta the point, isn’t it Ken? To establish, right from the beginning of the new year, that EVERY good thing comes from (their) god and that they are unworthy.

    Humility par excellence. . . . 😦

  2. Yep, “God is in control” are the four most heart-breaking words ever spoken by a human being.

  3. I was just speaking to our daughter who’s camping in NSW and it was after midnight . . . she’s in a place everyone refers to as ‘toke’. . 😉


  4. I am reminded of something John Shelby Spong (a retired Episcopal bishop), said:

    “The Church doesn’t like for people to grow up. That’s why we talk about being born again — when you’re born again, you’re still a child. People don’t need to be born again, they need to grow up — to accept their responsibility for themselves and the world.”

    I will also add that Christians who believe (indoctrinated to believe) that the downtrodden brought it upon themselves, have lost their humanity.
