Authentic Christian spirituality is demonstrated by our actions. A caring and compassionate response to those in need reflects the love of Christ.

A response to those in need based in fear, selfishness, greed and racial bigotry does not demonstrate God’s grace and mercy. These are not Christian values, nor is violence, especially directed toward the poor and the suffering.

Getting real means adopting a lifestyle of faithfulness to the Gospel. Real Christianity requires a radical discipleship to Jesus Christ that demonstrates His love and grace in all relationships and in our every action. And this is especially true in regard to how we treat the least of these among us.

“Christianity is a lifestyle…”

Authentic spirituality has little or nothing to do with what we profess to believe. It, however, has everything to do with how we live our daily lives and how we treat the least of these among us.

If you have the opportunity to share this with right wing evangelicals it would be considered an act of grace…

I think it would be wonderful if some of the Right Wing Evangelical leaders (like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham) would explain this passage to our racist, whore mongering liar-in-chief…

Wait. I guess someone would have to show the passage to them first. They must have also never seen it…but, surely it is in their Bibles…

True Christian discipleship means faithfulness in living like the one we follow. I do not remember anywhere in the Gospels where Jesus berates, castigates, or condemns anyone for their race or sexual orientation.

I do remember him saying multiple times that we are to love each other more than we love ourselves. Maybe our spirituality should be determined more by how much we love rather than all the things we condemn…just a thought
