Damn Those Churchy People

You just can’t trust those churchy people. That’s what I was told in a conversation I had a while back, the person who said it shall remain anonymous. I asked what exactly was meant by “churchy people.” He said, “You know, those people that go to church and are always trying to do good when they really aren’t.”

“So someone who is churchy and does good can’t be trusted because they do good?” 

“No, it’s because they preach about things but they don’t always practice what they preach.”

“So they don’t do good?”

“No, no, no, they do good but they also don’t do what they say others should do.”

“Like?”

“Well some of them go to church but will cheat on their spouses.”

“So that means they are all bad because some of them cheat on their wives? Does this mean that because some German guy named Hitler killed a bunch of innocent people that all Germans are bad?”

“That’s not the same thing. End of discussion”

Now what is even more interesting is that same person and I were talking about a married couple who are also co-workers of ours, and how they were always the first ones to do for others. I was going to remind him that they were what he called “churchy” people but then I thought better of it.

Evidently, this person doesn’t see the correlation between people who follow Jesus and good works.

  1. And then there was this one churchy guy, his employee came up to him and asked for an advance so that he could take care of a relative’s medical expenses. His answer? “Get off of my land.” The employee quit being a Christian and the boss went to church and praised God for giving him so much.

    1. Which shows me he wasn’t a true Christian. As we read in Luke 18:19 – 24:

      He then addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else.
      “Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.
      The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—greedy, dishonest, adulterous—or even like this tax collector.
      I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
