Hidden Rules by Raymond A. Foss

Hidden rules
secret handshakes
whether we say “debts”
or “trespasses”,
how we do this or that
whether you may participate
or remain a guest
all of these
the way it is done
closing others out,
whether we know it or not,
that they may not be friends
missing Christ’s point
his command
to love one another
that all may enter in

When Christians Get it Wrong trailer
by Adam Hamilton
my comment posted to this post:
“This is a very powerful message and one that needs repeating. We as Christian deny Christ when we do not live out the Great Commission by creating barriers, stumbling blocks to Christ. We must be sowing joy, not judgment, love not division, hope not condemnation, agape love not the values of the world. Only in this are we fulfilling our call, using our gifts for God's glory.”
Matthew 5-7
Sermon on the Mount
Matthew 25:31-46
the Judgment
