I’ve Got A Question For You…. (Christians Only Chat)

As Christians living in this millennium, there has always been this increasing discussion (sometimes debate) as to how a Christian (a follow of Christ) should act. What is ‘human nature’ and what is blatant sin.

I normally give my commentary, but today I want to read the honest opinions of what others think, feel, and believe. I know my own personal thoughts — and some weren’t easy to come to — but I want YOUR honest thoughts

Note that what this is NOT is a set up for a fight.

With this being said…. I have a few questions for you.

QUESTION A – Do you hold gospel/Christian music singers to the same moral standard as preachers/ministers?

QUESTION B – Would you attend (or stay at) a church where you know the pastor or ministerial staff dabbles in deviant activities or a lifestyle that is contrary to the teachings of Christ? What if they preach truth straight from the bible but are just not living as a Christian ought?

QUESTION C1-

Would you regularly attend or join a church where the pastor…

  1. Drank socially (this includes wine and coolers)
  2. Openly carried on a homosexual relationship
  3. “Discretely” carried on a homosexual lifestyle
  4. Smoke cigarettes or Black-and-Milds (no weed)
  5. Married or was married to someone who drank heavily and did drugs
  6. Gossiped or had a bad attitude at times
  7. Was not a “people person”

QUESTION C2-

Would you regular buy the music of, support, and listen to a gospel/Christian artist who….

  1. Drank socially (this includes wine and coolers)
  2. Openly carried on a homosexual relationship
  3. “Discretely” carried on a homosexual lifestyle
  4. Smoke cigarettes or Black-and-Milds (no weed)
  5. Married or was married to someone who drank heavily and did drugs
  6. Gossiped or had a bad attitude at times
  7. Was not a “people person”

Just open a blank word document or take out a scratch piece of paper and just write down your simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Comment on this post… I’m eager to see how your mind thinks!

– Be blessed, Joc

  1. WOW..YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN MY DEAR..THIS WAS THE GREATEST READ EVER!

  2. A – No. Most “christian artists” are in it for the money. Sad but true. I’ve seen a lot of interviews with a lot of retired artists and they always say that typically 90% of the industry is filled with “fakers” because its easier to get signed to a Christian label than a “real” label, as it were.

    B – No. How can you preach the truth without living the truth?

    C1 – 1. Yes, provided the drinking doesn’t lead to constant drunkenness.
    2. No.
    3. Absolutely not.
    4. Not a sin.
    5. It would be a sin to leave him/her for these things.
    6. Probably not if the pastor was a gossip. But a bad attitude? It happens to the best of us.
    7. I feel like the pastor needs to be a people person. Hard to share the Gospel if you aren’t.

    c2 – Irrelevant.

    Neat blog! I’m going to spend some time poking around.
