Ahh, quoting yourself. Is there a surer sign it’s time to swallow a bug bomb?
But the point is that I’m exhausted with conservative Christians thinking that liberal Christians wouldn’t know God’s will from a venti soy caramel latte with extra foam, and with liberal Christians thinking conservative Christians are inbred morons.
Christians should have a national Reverse Your Views Day. On that day, conservative Christians would appreciate the righteousness of God’s unconditional love universally applied to virtually everyone. They would feel for themselves the Spirit-smothering oppression of too many rules, too much judgment too fervently applied. They would take the time to appreciate the important differences between The Good News and Fox News.
Likewise, on Reverse Your Views Day liberal Christians would appreciate what it’s like to actually have a conviction. They’d experience the liberating clarity of knowing exactly who God is and what He wants, the release that comes with full obedience. On that day, liberals would understand the Bible as God’s word, instead of history’s toy. They’d stop guessing the vintage of the communal wine.
The day after Reverse Your Views Day, conservatives could again take up their signs and bullhorns, and liberals could again resignedly shake their heads and turn up the volume in their Volvos as they drive by.
And God could go back to wondering whether creating people was such a good idea after all.
