Pocket Full of Quarters Trek 2010
By Cheryle M. Touchton
The Pocket Full of Quarters Lady
This is dedicated to the people all across America who shared with me their ďChristianĒ and ďChurchĒ horror stories.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13 NIV
To everyone who has been hurt by Christians who put legalism ahead of love, Iím sorry. Those same people crucified Jesus.
To everyone who has been hurt by a church who judged them instead of loving them, Iím sorry. Jesus told them that if they judged, He was going to judge them.
To everyone who has been devastated by a Christian who did not honor their vows, Iím sorry. Jesus said they honored Him with their lips but their hearts were far from him.
To everyone who has watched a Christian use Godís word to kill or destroy, Iím sorry. Jesus said to love your neighbor.
To everyone who has been puzzled by a Christian trembling in fear, Iím sorry. Jesus said, ďOh ye of little faith, why do you doubt?Ē
To everyone who has been abandoned by a Christian, Iím sorry. God said, ďI will never leave you nor will I forsake you. ď
To everyone who has been wounded by Christians while doing the work of Christ, Iím sorry. Jesus said, ďFather forgive them, they know not what they do.Ē
To everyone who has been reminded of their mistakes by Christians, Iím sorry. If you ask Jesus into your life, He wonít even remember your mistakes.
To everyone who has had Christians use the word of God to win an argument, Iím sorry. The Bible says they have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels.
To everyone who has watched Christians preach one thing while doing another, Iím sorry. The Savior called them hypocrites.
To anyone who has been criticized by a Christian, Iím sorry. Jesus said they should have first taken the plank out of their own eye.
To everyone who has rejected Christ because of Christians, Iím sorry. Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.
