Church Person

Today at Church was one pastors last sermon. Mrs. Bubba and I are glad this person is leaving, we don't care for this person. Does that make us bad Christians? I tend to disagree with this person's, shall we say, Biblical interpretations and I'm not too keen on this person's politics. But I also think I should have no clue about this person's politics by just listening to this person from the pulpit. I don't want to be preached to about political things. Just the Bible. I'm old fashioned.

I don't think disliking someone makes you a bad Christian. At least I hope not, or I'm in bad shape!

I don't think so, either. I don't necessarily think she's a bad person, I just don't care for her, her religious 'beliefs,' or her politics. And I don't think the last two should be mixed in any way. I resent being preached 'at,' and that's what happens when you bring your politics into the pulpit

I agree. Granted, I have not been to church in quite awhile but I've never heard any mention of politics. Well, other than the "let's pray for people in such and such war" or for soldiers or something like that. I don't mind that. If anyone needs prayers... And I'm ok with not liking everyone. I don't think you have to. You just maybe shouldn't do mean things to them. If I had a religion I guess it would be a pretty easy one.

I think it's way weird that your church congregation would applaud the sermon. It does not make you a bad Christian because you dislike someone. If you really just want to hear the Bible preached - you're in the wrong denomination. Baptists have it all over most denominations in that regard.
