Are you AWOL?

Are you a 'good' Christian? Do you go to church, serve on committees, work the church dinners and other events? Do you have a Christian bumper sticker on your car? Do you continually post on Facebook all the catchy sayings about being a Christian? Those are all good things! BUT, if you are not acting according to the 'greatest commandments' (Jesus' name for them) of loving God, "with all your heart, all your mind, and all your strength," AND "love your neighbor as yourself," then you are AWOL.

AWOL military personnel go against their Prime Directive and forfeit the rights and privileges of their rank. AWOL Christians go against their Prime Directive listed above, and forfeit their rights and privileges under the Blessing of God.

They also turn more people away from Christ by their example. Brennan Manning has said, "The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny him with their life style. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable."

Are you judging others? Gossiping about others? Talking down to others? If so, you are AWOL, my friend.

To learn more please order AWOL (Acting WithOut Love) Christians today!
