Masks Down - Question #1 revisited

Okay, okay. Everybody has been fussing because I took the first question off the blog, so I'm gonna put it back on! I was just worried that you may think I was having problems with my church, which is not the case at all.....but, it was a point that at times I do feel that people in the secular workplace are more honest and real to deal with than the Christians we have in our churches. I always know where my co-workers are coming from in our association with each other, however, the same is not always true with our church family. They get caught up in the whole "God Loves You" mindset while they are painting a target on your back. It's like a little girl I taught in church kindergarten years ago who stood there singing "Jesus Loves Me" which she was pinching the tar out of the kid standing next to her.

At least we can expect that behaviour from our work environment at times. Are masks more acceptable in the secular world than in the Christian world? We know how to play the politics and games there. However, we get caught off guard when it comes from a Christian brother or sister. So, continue discussing amongst yourselves, just don't try to figure out to whom I may be referring.....if I am referring to someone.....and I might be.....but, then again, I might not.

Be God's,

So, that's why you won't sing a duet with me. You're afraid I might pinch the tar out of you while we sing!

blah blah blah. I did sing one duet and that should have been convincing that I should stick with other outlets of expression.
