Aberrant Christianity


A real nice post about Christian life by Fletcher abbot at:


By John A. David

A student of theology, a bible teacher and a graphics designer. I ramble a lot about Christian faith, apologetics and atheism.

Hey there John,
I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t given up on our conversation. It’s just that our section of the city had a major blackout the other night, and since I always write at night, I was on the computer when the black-out occurred. To make a long story short, I lost all the material I had accumulated to keep my supply of written work, slightly ahead of the published work. I’ve been writing day and night for the last couple of days as I try to rebuild that cushion that I always like to have, but as soon as I do, you will be hearing from me as there is some ideas in your last letter that I would like to ask you about. Until then, stay safe, and in the Lord.

Thanks for the understanding (We’re all pretty sure we got hit by a lightning strike.

By the way, thank-you for the nice compliment, but my name, as you wrote it, should have the “i” and the “a” reversed. Now its my turn to Lol. : )

hey John, that masquerade thing is really something.

while the writer meant “christians though christianity is a mask to be put on” and that is absolutely right, I had a sudden ‘light bulb’ moment.

some people puts an imaginary mask on our face and expects us to be that mask. believers has been expected to be perfect, holy (their definition), sinless(their definition), kind, compassion, cannot get angry, cannot make mistake… etc.

and alas! that is why we are called hypocrites (their definition) because we don’t exactly play the role they stereotype us with.

glad you reposted it 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment. Thank you.
