Christians Tired of Being Misrepresented took a chance this last week and launched another Facebook Page dedicated to inspiring our Members. It's called "Inspiration - for those outside the "BOX".
There are 100's of inspirational Facebook Pages out there. That's why this is a "chance". It may flop and that's okay. Yet, we saw a gap that needed to be filled.
That gap is where many of our members live in. You're living in the Gap if you call yourself a Christian, but don't want to associate yourself with the Christians you see in the media or on other Christian Facebook Pages. You're not into the Kumbaya group, where life is all wonderful because of its exclusivity and everyone out there is going to hell because they don't look like you or act like you.
Maybe you grew up in "the church", but found it hypocritical or you were rejected there because you questioned something. You now choose to identify yourself as an Atheist, Pagan, Theist, Agnostic, but deep within still find inspiration through thoughtful introspection.
A “BOX” is the limitation of conventionality. You are living outside the limitations of Christian conventionality if;
- You question whether there is a “Hell”
- You don’t accept the idea that there is only one way to God
- You understand that diversity is a strength, not a weakness
- You accept that God created Evolution
- You understand that the Bible isn’t inerrant
- You have come to realize that Homosexuality isn’t a sin as taught in the Christian church
- You don't believe that owning a gun is a God given right
- You acknowledge that America isn’t God’s chosen country
- You now realize that non-Christians won’t burn for eternity
- You consider everyone to be your brothers and sisters, not just those within the Christian faith
