The man we all know but will not say anything to, anything of and will not take to task even if it means losing our salvation.
It’s Friday afternoon as Mr. Christian slides behind the wheel of his Viper, oh yea a family man needs toys you know! Off he speeds to the motel to shower and change before hitting the pub to warm up for the club tonight. Later that evening with the dirty looking blond hanging on his arm he is waved into the club, hey they know Mr. Christian very well here being a regular and all.
The music is thumpin and the floor is jumpin when Mr. Christian and the skanky blond drop a Molly each because they need to sway to the rhythm tonight. It is lights and floor movement and more and hey Mr. Christian is rockin da house ya all! Later that morning he and the Jezebel Blond make it to the hotel room.
Mr. Christian realizes at some stage in his stupor that he has to go home sometime, and needs to call the motel reception to find out what day it is and what time. After learning that is Saturday evening and it is 9 pm he rushes to get dressed and head home but before he does he makes sure to pay his tithe to the wretched satanic wench that accompanied him to the house of pain.
Upon arriving home his emotionally drained wife asks why, Mr. Christian goes into full battle mode as he knocks her out cold and then screaming at the top of his lungs at the hysterical kids, that no deserving Christian wife will ever question the head of the house as he departs for the bedroom where in minutes he is sound asleep our Mr. Christian.
Sunday morning and Mr. Christian is up and ready for church while a battered and bruised Mrs. Christian serves him breakfast and the traumatized children hide till he leaves for church. Arriving at church Mr. Christian parks the Viper nearly in the entrance to the hall and when he alights from his middle aged crisis he greets one and all with an holier than thou expression. During the service Mr. Christian sits right in front of the congregation because Mr. Christian is a deacon you see!
Mr. Christian puts Pavarotti to shame during the singing of the hymns and he can’t keep his eyes off Miss Christian Neighbor. During the service he is already plotting his next great adventure until next Sunday when he once again he will put on his holy face while Mrs. Christian will put a raw steak on hers.
Do you recognize this man, he is in a position of power and everyone knows about is infidelity, his woman beating, his ungodliness and still no one will utter a word. Mr. Christian will vote on church matters and support the pastor, that knows about him but does nothing. It is time to stand up for God, it is time to serve the real body of Christ Jesus, it is time that we call those that live in willful sin to task and it is of the utmost importance that we call our preacher to task if he supports Mr. Christian.
Take the time to serve God for wide is the way that leads to destruction and narrow is the Gate that leads to everlasting life!
