I feel relatively sure this post will offend some folks, but I post this truth without apology. If this offering offends you to the point of never reading my posts again, well "The Naked Pastor" and I hope you soon find what part of the body you are. Perhaps this may hit a little to close to home.
The following cartoon is taken from a blog I subscribe to called "The Naked Pastor". He is very blunt and to the point with his observations and statements about his perceptions, and I like it.
We talk about being part of the body of Christ but if it appends to be one of those "uncomely" parts we don't want to discuss or even mention. Can you even try to imagine what the physical body would be like without this important part of it's make up. Wait we would then be like vultures who, I'm told, have no anal orifice, (cleaned that up for those of you who may be a vulture). But how do they relieve themselves of the waste one might ask. Through their mouths, they vomit or spew the waste instead of depositing it the way most of God's creations do.
Seems maybe we have more vultures in our midst than we thought. Vultures in the pulpits, vultures in the pew, vultures have invaded and are not just waiting for death to occur. They have become vicious and are even attacking followers of Christ and spewing their waste at us to try and devour or least discourage us with their message of death. They appear to try to make the life we've been given dirty and ugly as opposed to "THE LIFE" we've been given to live for God.
So my bottom line is this Asshole's of Christ let's stand together and create a stink for Him and His Kingdom. Some been silent far too long. A stink has a drawing or a repelling affect, if you make a stink and it repels people it ain't God you're just an asshole...but if it draws you may be an asshole in he body of Christ.
A big thanks to "The Naked Pastor " for his cartoon ministry and allowing those of us with no artistic ability to use his work.
