Lifestyle Choice April 16, 2015

Lifestyle choice,

In our day and age many Christians, including very prominent ones, have chosen a lifestyle that is fundamentally at odds with their claim to be Christians. This is a lifestyle choice I am talking about – it is not something genetic, something innate, something inevitable. It is a sin that is so abominable that it is condemned uncategorically in both Testaments. I am speaking, of course, of the tendency in particular among American Christians, and particularly among our leaders, to live in luxury while our brothers and sisters are starving, cold, and oppressed.

The quote comes from an old post of mine from back in 2007, also with the title “Lifestyle Choice.” I thought it might be worth sharing again. The verse from Ezekiel is borrowed from an image on the Redefine Sodomy website.

"I shall try to live up to that expectation!"
