Alot of discussions this week have really made me think about my faith and my feelings regarding “religion” and “church.” I feel like somewhere along the way we as Christians have gotten distracted and lost the call that Jesus intrusted us as believers with. We are hung up on such stupid things that blind us to the reality of eternity and that there are people who are in need of Christ but we are too busy fighting amongst ourselves. I am tired of what “church” has become. It has become a social organization where we meet every Sunday with people who look just like us and think just like us, etc. I am so ready to break out of this mold! I am ready for something different! I am ready to truly be an imitator of Christ!
