MADPRIEST’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

When Christians pretend to be different from or superior to or more righteous than or more moral than everybody else (and as a priest I can tell you that it is most usually pretence) then they make God (who is actually very close to us and, in Christ, one of us) appear aloof. And nobody likes a snob.

I am very ordinary. My blog is very ordinary. It is like a pub on a Friday evening. It's reality with people speaking how they speak when they are not trying to prove they are more refined than everyone else. This is good because it means that when we talk about God we show God to be part of the ordinariness of life. Believe me, a mundane God is far more attractive than a pompous God and, in the case of true Christianity, a lot closer to the truth.
