Barney Fife “the Christian Po-Po”

You know you can fake many things in life, I mean its hard to tell what is real anymore.
Is it live or is it memorex was the commercial in the 70's. Could you really tell that it wasn't Ella Fitzgerald singing ? I couldn't. Now, we are dealing with people who say they are Christians, they are working in all parts of the ministry, singing in the choir, (great voices I might add) teaching scriptures, doing great things in the community. Smiling and kissing babies. Helping little old ladies across the street. I mean, I can't tell anymore.

So, I just treat them as christians. I'm not the Christian (Po-Po) police. At one time people use to say, you can tell by how the person dress. You know the long dresses, no makeup, no earring etc… Brothers, short hair, not playing football or basketball or not wearing shorts. Carrying those giant print bible. Not going to movies at the theater. Well, we found that to be more about preference and fear in some cases.

So, I think I will just keep on watching, praying and loving people. And let the Lord sort it out. My days of being has been over for years. Turn in my fake badge.

Now, where their's clear present danger, I will speak out. I don't know everything, but I do know HIM!

The Bible says, "Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'" Matthew 13:30
