"It's obvious you have little to do but bash other religions."


Regarding "Should Christians Support the Salvation Army?" It is obvious that you have very little to do but bash other religions. Maybe I should do one about yours. No, that would make me just as un-Christian as you!


Quite a broad generalization based on one sermon outline.

My job as a preacher is described by Paul: "I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" (II Timothy 4:1-4).

Because you had no answer to why your religion does not teach and practice as God directs, you claim that it is somehow wrong to tell others that a religion is wrong. If such were true, how did the early church convict idolaters to leave their religion? Why are we commanded to stand against false teachings? "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world" (I John 4:1). And why did our own Lord not consider the feelings of his Jewish brethren when he took them to task (Matthew 23:1ff)?

My job isn't to make you happy with the way you are. My duty is to get you to heaven, and to do that I have to point out when you are off track.
