I’m reading a great book by Steve Brown called, “What Was I Thinking?: Things I’ve Learned Since I Knew It All.”

It’s a great book because it’s a great wake up call to those who think they’ve figured God and Jesus out. One of the things he talks about is the propensity many Christians have to try and choose God’s friends for Him. We’ve all seen various people who have either dressed differently or looked differently than we have and we’ve made comments either to those around us or to ourselves about those people. Christians often display one of the terrible gifts they have which is that of self-righteousness, yours truly included.

Amongst those people are drug addicts, criminals, pornographers, etc. He said there was also clergymen and other men of faith.
