Why do we as Christians think that we are living a good Christian life as long as other Christians are unaware of our sin and shortcomings?
Why do we accept a "performance based" Christianity?
Why don’t we realize that we still sin and fall short of the glory of God?
Why do I feel like a good person of I think I haven’t done anything “really bad” today, when the Bible says that in my flesh even my good works are as filthy rags in God’s sight?
Why don’t we walk in the light and be honest about our mistakes, failures and sin?
Why do we want others to think we are someone who is holy and pious, when it is only by the righteousness of Jesus that we are blameless in the eyes of God?
Why do we get upset at our fellow believers when they ever so slightly sin against us?
Why can’t we see that it’s only by God’s grace that we didn’t do the same thing to them?
Why can’t we have a more honest Christianity in America, instead of the fake shell of flesh-produced psuedoholiness?
Why can’t we have a more Gospel-centered/cross-centered Christianity?
One that daily looks to the Gospel as a foundation for our lives, the hope of our salvation (past, present & future) and the answer to our sinfulness… and not the shifting sands of self-righteousness that produces a performance based, man-centered Christianity.
