I'm Embarrassed

Sometimes I am very embarrassed to be a Christian.

I was in the local small Christian bookstore earlier today picking up a book, and there were two gentlemen standing near the front talking loudly back and forth about how anti-Christian and anti-biblical Barack Obama is. One loudly stated that Obama has, on multiple occasions, said "I am proud of my Muslim, oops, I mean Christian faith."

What made this worse is that these two gentlemen at least appeared to be intelligent, successful people.

I respect anyone who is supporting one of the presidential candidates, or who has strong political viewpoints, based upon their religious convictions. But lies, deception, and ignorance do not become us. When this is communicated to the world at large by Christians and in the name of Christianity, it cannot help but paint Christianity as a system steeped in shallow and untrustworthy thinking.

To all Christians - please watch what you say. When your facts are missing your butt is what starts doing the talking. And like it or not, this reflects Jesus Christ poorly to an already cynical world.
