An Impolite Society

with one comment

There is actually much to be said for an Impolite Society.
I walk through town listening to people trying to hide their feelings and hiding behind a mask of a smile.
“No, of course not, You go first. you were only fifteen feet behind me when I got to the checkout stand – and you only have a few dozen items in your basket anyway”

What would happen though if we all said what we think?
Would God the Father suddenly strike us down? Would Hulk Hogan jump over the counter and put a choke hold on us? Nope don’t think so.

Granted it was only Christ who carried the mantle of sinlessness. He never had to say He was sorry, apologize for an inconsiderate remark, or ”clarify a postion”
Christ did on the other hand ALWAYS say what he believed, felt and knew to be right. He managed to chase the moneylenders out of the temple calling them every name they deserved and rebuking them for their crass behavior and didn’t have to feel bad about afterwards.
And with Christ as the model for us, where is the benefit in condoning boorish behavior?
