what can we as christians do to wake people up.

This was one of the google searches that brought someone to my blog.

Unless the person is wondering about alarm clocks that pay hymns, I find the question offensive. What I find offensive is the basic assumption that this "christian" is the one that is awake and everyone else is asleep. And also the offensive assumption that everyone else needs to be awaken.

I think this is one of the things that will always cause a rift between the liberal folks and the more conservative folks; the conservatives seem to think that they have nothing to learn from their adversaries. Some may say that the same is true for the liberals, but it seems that the liberals are willing to entertain other possibilities. I find most fundamentalists to be cocksure and unable to entertain the thought that they may just possibly be wrong.

Nick and I were watching "Jesus Camp" last night on the Bio Channel. I was disgusted! The brainwashing these poor children were going through. In my opinion, that was child abuse.

I think (I fear) it is many Christians who need waking up! Religious abuse is rampant.

just about anything is now justified as being part of 'my religious views'
so I wouldn't be surprised to hear nasty things going on at camp.
