“Christian” is a lousy adjective

What’s the difference between an auto mechanic and a “Christian” auto mechanic? Between a florist and a “Christian” florist. What qualification does the adjective “Christian” bring to a noun?

What’s a “Christian” supposed to be like anyway? If you walked up to 10 people at church and asked them to define “Christian” to you, do you think any two would agree on what one is?

To me, “Christian” as a modifier is ambiguous. Whether you call someone a “Christian” something, or you call yourself a “Christian” whatever, to me we have much more adequate adjectives we can use other than “Christian”.

What do you think? Do you agree? Let me know in a comment. I’d be very interested in your response.
Here’s a link to my current post, “Christian is a lousy adjective”

Managing Depression

One in five Americans suffers from some form of mental illness, according to the National Alliance for Mental Illness, NAMI.
My blogging friend Secret Angel, herself an abuse survivor, included this video in here blog post, This cloak of darkness; a message to the depressed, this week, It’s about a 20–year-0ld’s battle with crippling depression and her courage to perform her song of overcoming before an audience of millions of people on America’s Got Talent. Her courage brought me to tears.

We have a new generation — the Crybaby Generation

We have a new generation — the Crybaby Generation

First it was the the World War II men and women (my folks’ generation).
Tom Brokaw wrote a book about them and called them The Greatest Generation.
Then cane their kids’ generation (my generation). They call us Baby Boomers
Then along came the GenX generation (our kids).
Then came the Millinnials (their kids).
Now we have the Crybaby Generation, also known as Whiners. These are teenagers and disinfranchised Millenniels who go to school, hang out, spend their parents’ money, play video games, drink, smoke dope, hook up, abuse cell phones, get their morals and world view from each other, abandon church and family values, protest en mass about anything they don’t like, seek cry zones when they get upset about llife, reject anything they don’t understand, and prefer picketing over going to class or taking tests. They can’t tell you what they believes or what their moral compass is. They borrow beliefs from peers or posters or persuasive professors. They don’t know history, nor care to. They don’t have original thoughts. They don’t understand politics or govrnment or much of anything relevant to real life. They have no goals and don’t think past the next “happening”.
Some of them will be running our country some day. That ought to scare the cr_p out of all of us.

Has anyone seen my groove?…

Has anyone seen my groove?

I need to get it back.

The blue funk I’m in has taken its toll on my writing. I’m not reading my Bible every day, I’m disinterested in many of the things I otherwise enjoy doing. I’ve let emails and comments pile up. I’m experiencing signs of my PTSD again with some mild depression as well.

What do you think about…

What do you think about mental illness?

This is Mental Illness Awareness Week. We have experienced severe mental illness in our family. I belong to NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness. In fact, I’m an instructor for a NAMI Family-to-Family Education course and a facilitator for a support group for family members of those with a mental illness diagnosis.
I wrote about mental illness today on my For His Glofy blog.
I’d really be interested in your feedback.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone

I’m okay. You’re okay. It’s…

I’m okay. You’re okay. It’s all okay. Okay?

We live in a day when offending anyone about anything anytime anywhere can potentially cause angry, hateful, sometimes-violent retribution. Or become fodder for a lawsuit.
How did we allow this to happen?
I wrote about it all today on For His Glory. Why not check it out and see what you think.
Leave me some likes and comments if you will.

Enjoy.

Have a Marvelous Monday everyone
