I have actually decided that I have exceptional facebook friends because I was unaware that -- other than teenagers -- this behavior was common on facebook.
This is also a church-going woman talking about another church-going person .. not unlike GCB's .. the new series *rolls eyes*
I'm a Christian and I found this public display incredibly distasteful for another professing Christian -- or adult human of any kind .. lol .. .. (but also why I find the show GCB kinda funny .. you just KNOW people JUST LIKE THAT!) .. lol
I have a FB account but never go there. I just cannot be bothered with all the bickering and bitching that goes on all around.
As for 'Christians' sorry, but most church goers are the biggest hypocrites you can come across.
I consider myself a Christian, I rarely go to church, pointless, when I sit for more than 2 minutes I fall asleep. Sitting equals snoring so I never get away with it!
Both my parents could be classed as good Christian people yet they rarely went to church, they looked after others and lived by the commandments more than most.
A woman who was widowed lived in the bungalow adjoining my parents house. When she found living on her own to much parents converted their sitting room onto a bed sitting room for her. Mum cooked and did all her washing and generally cared for her. \Mill was a Methodist and cleaned and did the flowers in the church, she also cared for the hall, opening and closing it when needed and keeping it clean.
Mill developed dementia and went to live in a nursing home. Her pastor never once visited her there.
One Sunday a neighbour told Dad that mill was wandering in the centre of the road. Mum immediately grabbed her jacket and went to find her. It wasn't far up the road, 5 minutes at the most. Mill only had on a pair of slippers, skirt and blouse and the weather was bitter with a wind cutting through everything. Mill was shivering so mum took her jacket off. (Mum was in her 80's) Mill couldn't walk very fast and they had just got to the corner when mum saw the pastor coming out of a shop and called to him for help. He just looked at them, got in his car and drove off.
A young lad was doing something to his car and asked what help was needed. Mum told him that they were both freezing, Mill had 'escaped' and she wanted a lift. He immediately started his car, loaded them both and drove to the nursing home - only a few minutes away. Mum took Mill in, had a word with the staff to say she was wandering (a visitor had let her out!) and set off to walk home. The young lad was waiting for her and took her home refusing any payment.
It takes an earthquake to rile mother but she was so angry over this and later, still seething she went down to the church whilst the service was on and gave the minister a piece of her mind.
He actually had the audacity to say that he didn't recognise her or Mill, which was a downright lie, and he was told so.
One woman made a comment on what Mum had said and Mum turned and told her that if she considered herself a Christian then she could make the effort to visit Mill as they had been 'friends' for years.
My church is at the top of the hill, I can and do sit at the top of the hill, often on a horse, and do my humming to the good Lord. I haven't found a preacher that I have liked in years.
