I accidentally posted a rant blog. Right here, Right in this space. I’d meant to save it as a draft, but hit publish instead.
Maybe it wasn’t an accident. Maybe – it was a subconscious passive aggressive way of saying what I really feel. Of saying that I’m tired of LCMS ripping itself apart.
rather than a page of my mindless ranting, why don’t I simply tell you the truth about what set me off.
Pictures like these on LCMS blogs.
With scripture like this to back it up. Malachi 4:1 (ESV) “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.”
That – is what set me off.
I search for other Ablaze bloggers and I find hate – and dissension. I find very few people on the blogosphere speaking positively about the Mission of LCMS today and it saddens me. My enough button got pushed. I got discouraged, for a day.
I woke up this morning, and I studied my new verse, like I do every morning, and I remembered God’s word’s to me this month:
Hebrews 10:35-36 – “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded, you need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.”
My confidence is not in politics, pastors, church boards or myself. My confidence is in Christ Alone.
