Questions on Christ & Mission…

Some random questions I’m sure plenty of you have interesting responses to…

What’s the difference between a Christian and a humanitarian?

What do you love more? Christ or the Cause of Christ?

What would you be doing if you couldn’t be the hands and feet of Christ? ie. you were just a head being pulled around on a skateboard?

    wow, lon. you have a way of making me think more than my average blog subscription.

    okay here goes:

    difference between a christian and a humanitarian – i guess motive….although i have to say that in many cases the humanitarian motive is more purely christ-like than the typical christian motive. generally speaking, a humanitarian isn’t giving something in order to get something. wheras the christian a lot of times is giving in order to convert. then again, i think christians and humanitarians alike are at least subconciously trying to get points from God.

    do i love christ more, or the cause of christ? wow, i guess honestly i’d have to say the cause of christ. i’ve never “met” christ like i meet people in the real world. as i’m living out the cause of christ (which i would simply define as loving people) it puts me in contact with people. i was made for this. but it’s hard for me to complete the circle and realize that i have a love for people because of my love for christ. it’s not as tangible…

    head on a skateboard? i guess i’d be yelling out directional instructions….NO! turn left! YOUR OTHER LEFT!!

    thanks for the questions lon……skc

    great thoughts Stephen! thanks for being so honest about it all. i asked the skateboard question because i think that helps differentiate a bit of the humanitarian thing… i mean, who are you when there’s nothing left to do, or when you go to bed at night?

    i struggle with loving christ personally, because being a part of what he’s doing is so much a part of it, but can sometimes replace it. ie. sometimes i feel like just another humanitarian…

    Aaron – i guess the cause of christ, is whatever purposes he has for us on this earth…
