Remember every christain we put on our Pedestal have…

I love Tim Keller

I love his preaching

I love his heart for our city and cities of the world

I love his books

I love CS Lewis,Calvinism,reformed faith,John Macarther, etc

You too have put people,theologies ,events  etc unto pedestals

Sometimes they becomes our idols

Paper popes they wrote it said it it most be true

A garden of eden perfect to live in

Then boom Reality hits us

Our heros 

Our shangrai la

Fail us

Many often say see Christianity is a sham

I will leave the faith

Many sadly do because they have placed their faith in a man or his creation 

I speak as well from personal experience (yet not I but Christ has a firm grasp of me in His nail scares hands)

As their Christ…their savior
Not on the Real Christ 

Both God and perfect man

Who alone will NEVER disappoint

 let us down

For Him their is no sin no imperfection

He never changes

He is the same,yesterday and tomorrow

And this must be the Lord and Savior 

We all must hold

 unto…

And of course admire those people,church leaders christians 

And natuarally our hearts will put them on pedestals 

Yet let us pound into our hearts and minds 

Daily 

Perpetually 

24-7

Every second

Every minute 

Every day 

Every month

Every year

The admonition

The implications 

Of the apostles,

The prophets 

Look at us 

We are not God’s

We are men like you

With sinful hearts

With sinful minds

And of course FEET OF CLAY

The only ONE worthy to sit upon the thrones of our

Hearts 

Minds

Lives 

Is God and God alone

And all those we admire 

Events

Places

Movements

We think and have become our xerox copies

Shadows of paradise lost

Can sit at thefoot of the steps leading to His heavenly eternal infinite throne…….

“Far from avoiding people from the gay community, as many Christians are tempted to do, you should make a point of getting close to people who are different from you. Spend time with them doing things you both like, as I did in playing video games with Louis. Ask questions to get to know a new friend better. Share your own story. Find some way to be of help. Go to movies, go out to eat, just hang out with people who are different from you. Maybe you could even offer to pray with a person from the LGBT community and begin to dialogue about his or her life. God will use you to demonstrate his love to someone else. And by the way, this goes both ways. You’ll get something back too, as the other person gets to know you in relationship. In fact, I believe we have so much to learn from people from all walks of life, including the LGBT community. Each person carries with him or her vast experiences, joys, hurts, learning, and more. Obviously there will be issues that you will not agree on, but at least you will have a new friend. In short, you’ve got to get your hands dirty by embracing the lives of others. Not that people in the LGBT community are actually dirty, any more than the rest of us are. That’s just not true. What I’m saying is, if you want to show God’s grace to people in this or any community, you’ve got to get to work at forming relationships with people, one by one. At one point, someone cared enough about you to get his or her hands dirty in the messiness of your life. Maybe it’s time for you to do the same for others.” from “Messy Grace: How a Pastor with Gay Parents Learned to Love Others Without Sacrificing Conviction” by Caleb Kaltenbach
