I was reading back and this caught my eye.(...)
I have come to the conclusion that often those battles are nothing more than jockeying for a place in line to enter those pearly gates. After all...if someone is wrong and the other person is right...you might lose your place in line.(...)To be first...you have to knock a few out of the way...let the "true" Christian through.
At least that is the way it appears at times...IMO.
I've noticed something similar to what you speak of.
At times, I get the impression that there is an almost "jockeying for position" thought/goal process going on, almost as if there is a competition, and there will be special merit given, attention or favor for those who are a "Better Christian".
Whether it's by "souls brought to the lorrrrd" or by inspiring others to follow the "better method of believing"<(ain't that a hoot).
<Bob Average> "IS THAT A JONAH ROLEX YOU'RE WEARING?"
<Bob Spectacular> "Yep, waterproof to 660 ft, and it's signed on the back by Jonah"
<Bob Average> " Maaauun...I wish I could have gotten one of those. I KNEW I should have treated people better!"
Do any Christians here have a thought concerning this?
Do you think some Christians have that mindset?
Are you one of them?
