Unless you are part of a functional local assembly of believers, I’m really not interested in your books and blogs telling everyone how to be or not be the church …

Unless you are out there doing actual evangelism and seeing people surrender their lives to Jesus and His Kingdom, I’m really not interested in hearing you tell everyone how they must or must not do evangelism …

Unless you are ministering redemption to actual people trapped in sin, I’m really not interested in your views on how Christians should or shouldn’t speak up about homosexuality or any other lifestyle of bondage …

Unless you are secure enough in your own gifts and motivations to honor God’s different callings in others, I’m really not interested in why you think He can’t send some to serve His Kingdom in academia, politics, the armed forces, government or the like …

Unless you are submitted to God’s plenary authority and truth of Scripture as His written Word, I’m really not interested in your “deeper life” revelations …

Unless you are an authentic disciple who has the integrity to sacrificially walk the walk and move beyond merely talking the talk, I’m really not interested in your attempts to transform Christ into an image of your own existential angst and narcissistic sensibilities …

Sorry if that offends …

But then again, maybe it’s time someone cared enough to offend and call you to repentance.
