Boring Christianity? – Wordless Wednesday

2021-09-15 WW - Is It Boring Being a Christian

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)

“For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)

  1. Often Christianity seems boring droll, and ordinary in the short term because it’s the legitimate understanding of human nature, which is often boring droll, and ordinary. Mankind always has to deal with the mundane but it can also be quite interesting

    1. But the only reason for following Jesus to seem dull is if we are not really following Him, but just going through religious motions. I never found much joy or excitement in religion, but following Jesus challenges me every day to discover more of The God Who Is and what He is doing in the world. Thanx, Larry, for visiting. I love your photo’s quote! 😉

  2. Yaaah, when I was young I used to think Christianity is boring. I discovered that I was taking it as a religion, but when I discovered that’s its more than religion, it’s about the Kingdom of God . . . I’m now enjoying my relationship with God. And indeed there are weapons and instruments yet to be exploited by us.

    Let’s enjoy serving God!

    1. Just be sure the “weapons are not carnal,” i.e., physical! 😄 We must pray FOR our enemies, like Jesus. And we will find in our hearts the same joy He had as He celebrated His last supper with His disciples. (John 15:11)

      1. Yes, I know, Just that I no longer spend more time and resources looking for enemies. What I know is my main enemy is the devil. As for people, it’s now too much negative energy 😂

    1. Had to find IMHO in the Urban dictionary. 😀
      This is true just as it is in philosophy. However, in practice many Christians seem to live “boring” lives without involvement in prayer and God intervening. This is less true among Pentecostals and Charismatics, but even there, many live as “practical atheists.” God is okay for Sunday meetings, but most of their decisions are made day-to-day without any consultation to Scripture or prayer to The God Who Is.
      And He knows who belong to Him.
      Thanx so much for your thoughtful comment.

    1. And it’s likely to get a LOT more interesting as governments overreach to “protect us” and set in motion the mechanisms for the antichrist. Keep faithful, my young friend, and you will be among those who “endure to the end.” Hallelujah! Maranatha.

    1. “For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18.
      Yes, we live in two worlds, one that is visible and the Kingdom of our Lord that is not yet seen. ❤️&🙏, c.a.
