Disclaimer: About This Blog

THIS BLOG IS: my personal journey of how I am rethinking some of my spiritual beliefs.
THIS BLOG IS NOT: intended to point fingers at people who I think are wrong.
I do not believe the final judgement will be based on how many correct answers we get on a theology exam. I believe many people throughout history have had genuine relationships with our Lord and Saviour Jesus, despite holding questionable beliefs and practices. I make no claim to having it all figured out or being your judge. If we end up disagreeing over these topics I pray we can find a way to demonstrate grace.

Despise Titles of Honor

"They despise titles of honor and the purple robe of high government office..."

Who could this quote be speaking of?

No, it wasn't referring to the occupy movement. :)

Here is more of the quote:
Christians "form a rabble of profane conspiracy... They despise temples as if they were tombs... They despise titles of honor and the purple robe of high government office, though hardly able themselves to cover their nakedness. Just like a rank growth of weeds, the abominable haunts where this impious confederacy meet are multiplying all over the world. Root and branch, it should at all cost be exterminated and accursed. They love one another before being acquainted. They practice a cult of lust, calling one another brother and sister indiscriminately; under the cover of these hallowed names, fornication becomes incest." -Minucius Felix, a lawyer in Rome, before his conversion. AD 200

Interesting quote. Over the years things have changed. 

Would anyone say any of this about Christians today?

We have become one with the culture. Too comfortable with it.

When it comes to the things of God, the culture always gets it wrong.

Thanks, Jon.
