5 Christian Pet Peeves of Mine

  1. Christians who claim they're quoting the Bible when in reality they're quoting Benjamin Franklin. Not only does it show you don't read your Bible carefully, but you also weren't paying attention in history class growing up either.
  2. Christian women ministries who tell women they deserve _______ (fill in the blank). Fact is, as sinners we deserve to be under God's wrath, but because of Christ's work on the cross we've been given the gift of grace. Deserving something implies the person was good to begin with, which flies in the face of this doctrine called original sin and it cheapens grace. The Father has lavished, bestowed, and gifted us with abundant grace and mercy not because we deserved it but because He loved us.
  3. Christians who judge other Christians for reading, watching, and liking Harry Potter. Just go watch this (I highly respect Jarram Barrs).
  4. Youth group game nights that included Honey I Love You. 
  5. Christians who criticize Billy Graham. Really? It's Freaking Billy Graham! You don't mess with that man. He's done more than many of us will ever do in our lifetime.
