Liberal Christians Are Not Exempt From Being Kind

Christians are supposed to be kind to others. Everyone! I teach my children what I believe. I want them to believe: It is OK to put your foot down when someone tries to take advantage of you. Still, treat everyone with dignity and respect. This is the art of diplomacy. I don’t expect my children to be masterful, but I do insist they practice it.

Does a Wife Have to Obey Her Husband?

Before obeying, read with discernment
Before obeying, read with discernment

Nope! As a Liberal Christian I believe that the Bible is subject to historical and contextual interpretations. I like the explanation that Wikipedia provides of Liberal Christianity. And it is a good thing I am a liberal because this is what the Bible says on obedient wives:

 

Wives submit to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now  as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Have You Heard Methodists Don’t ‘Believe In’ Drinking?

Have you heard that Methodists don’t “believe in drinking?” I heard that, but not during a sermon. In the ten years that I have been attending a Methodist church I never heard a talk about alcohol.

Being liberal means, for one thing, that I support same gender marriages. When my daughter was four she asked me if girls can get married to each other.

Saying Goodbye to a Beloved Pet

Maybe Heaven for cats is an eternal nap in a cozy spot.

My sweet cat has reached the end of her life. I found myself having to explain everything to my children. I just wanted to curl up and cry, but Moms don’t have such luxuries. I have to think first of how to help my children cope.

What Does It Mean To Be Liberal and Christian?

There are as many ways to be Christian as there are people in the world. I do not believe that there is only one path to Salvation.
