I Am Great

Yes, you "heard" me. I'm great.What's more, God knows I'm great. Wondering how I know these things? Well, Saddleback Church told me so today on Twitter!

YouMatter2God: Sit with God today. He knows how great you are, so tell him how great He is by giving Him your worries and your best! (Online Source)
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go tell God how fantastic I am. I told Him yesterday but He may have forgotten.

Seriously, do people buy this junk? This is what passes for "Christian" these days? Unbelievable. It almost makes me think that God didn't really need to save any of us from our sins. After all, if we're so great, we probably "aren't that bad" and don't sin too badly. So maybe we don't really need a Savior, we just need a buddy and a friend. Nothing beats the buddy-Jesus. Except maybe the Jesus who is Lord and Savior of all who believe in Him. But then, the Lord and Savior Jesus tends to be a little offensive. That must be why the buddy-Jesus is so much more popular.

Lord, forgive us of our conceit and our apostasy and open our eyes to the Truth!

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
