Tough Issues of Christianity Series – THANKS!

Over the past few days I’ve posted or reposted a number of blogs in a series generally titled “Tough Issues of Christianity.” These blogs have covered a very wide range of topics covering challenges we have in our Christian walk and/or denominational differences. Jesus made no promises that being His disciples would be easy. In fact, it was quite the opposite as He told us to “take up our crosses” to follow Him.

Although I have tried to present the topics covered in these blogs in an objective, unbiased way, I’m certain that many of my own thoughts and leanings have come through. This is one of the biggest challenges we face, collectively, as we fulfill the Great Commission of spreading the Good News. Our differences very often appear petty to those we are trying to reach and are one of the great barriers to wider acceptance of Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. I have to wonder of many of these differences don’t also seem petty to God. In many cases the differences we have often represent different paths to the same destination.

The importance of these differences, or perhaps better said, the magnitude, is shown by the number of readers and commentors to this series of blogs. They far surpass what is normal for my ramblings. I deeply appreciate the positive manner of the comments. They certainly help us to better understand what the underlying things are that make these “Tough Issues.”

On a personal level I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all who have read and/or commented on this series of blogs. I hope to be able to get in and respond to all of the comments soon… there are certainly a lot of them!

Shalom, Art

    Art, you do live up to your name – Aliveintheword.
    It is so easy for us to be complacent, and accept what we hear preached week in and week out. But you have made some thoughts, concerns come alive .. Thank you… for you have made us probe deeper into what and why we believe. Keep at it. that is your niche here even though it makes the enemy unhappy when the children of God become rooted in His Word.
