"(NOT AN) Accidental Christian"
Preached at: South Wedge Mission
Rochester, New York
Third Sunday in Easter
14 April 2013
Day Texts: Acts 9.1-20
-This is one of those week’s I’m really thankful that the Bible is not just a rule book, or a formula for being “a good person.” Because just think of the absurdities that would come of it! “If you want a really good fish fry with Jesus, then do the following:
- Stay up all night fishing and utterly fail to catch anything.
- Perform A) while naked with your friends.
- Get dressed before swimming to shore when Jesus shows up.”
- Utterly fail.
- Be completely unworthy.
- Be called again by Jesus to feed His sheep.
-That’s far more offensive than a little nudity on the sea. As offensive as our other star today, St. Paul, being called as the apostle to the Gentiles. In spite of being a mass murdering jihadist for the Jewish authorities. In spite of being, well, kind of an asshole, even after he is blinded and restored to sight.
