Not Ashamed

One of the biblical writers, Paul, wrote in his Roman letters that he was not ashamed of the gospel.

I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Romans 1:16 – New International Version (NIV) Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

Paul couldn’t have anticipated this “Sonseed” moment.

There are tons of embarrassing moments in Christianity. The Crusades and the Inquisition come to mind… While I didn’t have anything to do with the methodical torture and killing of Jews, nor a holy war against our Muslim neighbors, I do play bass in the band at church.

I would like apologize in advance for 30 years from now when someone looks back at what we do and mocks. I’m sure we’ll deserve it.

– Thanks to my sweet Sister in-law Michele for passing this one along to me all those years ago.
