Christians: Inspire by doing good works

Christians: Inspire by doing good works

Free-range denotes a method of farming husbandry where the animals, for at least part of the day, can roam freely outdoors rather than being confined in an enclosure for 24 hours each day.

We have free-range chickens,so why not free range Christians? Imagine Christians not enclosed by the restrictions of various denominations.

I’m not saying Catholics, Methodist, Baptist, etc., be abolished. Make of them for what they are worth — Christian day care. Once you reach the age of reason, become a free-range Christian.

As a free-range Christian, obey the 10 Commandments to the best of your ability. Understand Jesus, the Son of God, became the Christ. Mary was his mother, God his father. All that other stuff doesn’t make you a better Christian.

It’s fluff. Don’t organize into bodies that require “meeting houses,” property, aka wealth. Take the Bible for what it’s worth, a fable meant to inspire.

Inspire others by the way you conduct your life, not from what flows out of your mouth. Now you are equipped to be a free-range Christian.

God, heaven and paradise is found within one’s ability to live by the big 10.

If you need more, you’re not doing enough with your God-given natural abilities.

Unlike free-range chickens, free-range Christians aren’t eaten. You may lay a few eggs.

Maxine Waters, after exciting a crowd to do something, said “God is on our side.” If God is on Maxine’s side, he got drafted. 

“The biggest deception of all is that all of our bias hatred and intolerance is blessed by some unseen God”  -- Clyde Lewis/Ground Zero.
