Status Update from a high school senior:
"since Jesus took the time to clean my heart, I think I'll take the time to clean my room."
Really? WTF does that mean?

To get back to the OP, I no longer have any Fundy friends in fb. But then, no one from here is my friend there either. Mainly family and high school reunion friends.

. . . Really?? I have no words.
RE: Fundybook - bean - 04-11-2012 10:50 PM
My reply to that would be I don't know many people who say tebow praying is not ok. Tim can pray and I think hes genuine and its fine. Some are hyper critical of everything. That's life....
RE: Fundybook - Tchaiko - 04-12-2012 10:45 AM
My criticism of him would be that (1) Jesus already addressed this whole issue in Matt. 6:5-6 and that (2) he's not the best quarterback, but using the fact that he's "Christian" (whether he's actually doing it or the media/people around him are doing it) to get famous. That being said, I have no idea whether or not he's genuine. I think, though, that he is rather naive and has put himself in a position where he's personally gaining from his "spirituality."
And it may be because I'm still a little skittish about public displays of religion. . . I'm fine with it as long as it's in private or in church. It scares me when it's in public (it's a hangover from coming out of fundamentalism). In reference to the picture, both images scare me a little. The one on the left only scares me as much as a picture of a fundy church would, and possibly not even that much. The Bible has just as much dirt in it that is currently ignored by most people as the Koran does. We can't use a few verses to prove that Islam is "a religion of violence and hate."
But more than all of that, what I can't stand is the mentality portrayed in this picture, of "Why are we criticizing a Christian when there are Muslims alive anywhere on the earth? Let's wipe them out or convert them and then we can deal with our petty problems which really aren't problems because making a show of your religion is a good thing, right? But only if it's our religion."

I would add to this that Tebow is not being persecuted for his faith when people are uncomfortable with Tebowing, at least in any meaningful sense of the word "persecuted". We've discussed the overuse of that word on this forum before. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Also, I find (found, I guess) Tebowing mildly troubling because people's reactions to it showed that this public display of prayer, in what they perceive to be an increasingly secularized state is what they expect faith to look like. Faith is not listening to other people with consideration; it's not treating those who disagree with love and respect; it's not living a quiet and honourable life. Nope, that's not faith. Faith is a public display in a Christianized country; his prayers became, at least in part, a symbol of the Republican political drive. I know that Tebow himself probably wouldn't give that as his reason for public prayer. I see this in the enthusiastic reaction of FB friends who are aligned with the political Christian right.

Lady Julian, spot on. Yep. They are the cheerleaders of the right. One of the reasons I left the conservative evangelical/fundamentalist mindset/church.

lol. I just now saw this... and I´m not even sure for what I was supposed to be making fun of Clarksburg. But I´d be happy to take a stab if you were to point me in the general direction.
