Life can be lonely

Pastor Chris in FB Posts

I learned early on that, in general, people don't want to hear the truth. They want cotton candy promises and tootsie pop assurances. Even in my high school year book, people who signed it said they hoped I might 'tone it down' a bit as I aged (this was in regard to my love for Jesus). As you can imagine it's been a 'lonely' life. The bottom line is this: Whether it's spiritual things or government, etc., I 'see' things. I mention them and to this day, people still want me to shut up; they don't want to hear it, they don't want to see it. As a pastor I have a responsibility to 'say' things and I believe every Spirit-led Christian who 'sees' things has a similar responsibility. I believe it's part of 'loving my neighbor'. You may disagree, and that's OK. I will love you anyway.
