View of God

This was posted by a young friend of mine.  It shows what a poor job the church has done in sharing the good news. Considering what you tend to hear from tele-evangelists I loved the "he needs money" line.  Certainly what way too many people are hearing!   We need to do better!

Here is what my friend had to say:

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in
the sky who watches everything you do... And
the man has a list of ten things he doesn’t want you
to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special
place of torture and anguish for you to
...live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

Seems about the norm!

Funny, no mention of Jesus. That could be the problem.

Oh I agree Deborah. But I think until the "church" does a better job showing the world what we can be and who we really are and what God's love is all about, we can't get these young people in the church to mention Jesus.

Just about sums it up!
