What? The article is about the cathedral. Are you really going to say that means they have no other fruits? Are you serious?
They may have other fruits, but this is the fruit they/you choose to talk about, not the One who is worshiped. Alex Murphy is good about "stirring the stuff" then watching the stink rise. He's done it this time too. You choose to talk about the treasures here on earth.
Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Matthew 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
I choose to lay up treasures in Heaven where the creator of your building is. Otherwise, I don't care to talk about your building anymore. If you choose to worship that, go ahead. I won't bother you anymore.
In Christ, Wiley
“OK, Fine Vladimir, If you want to talk about the building, go ahead. I’ll talk about Jesus. BTW, do you know him?”
Yes, I know and love Jesus Christ. I know Him well enough that I do not assume Christians do Him a disservice by publishing articles about new cathedrals. How about you?
“I’ll be glad to introduce you. We don’t even need a building.”
But we do need a building. We are men and men live in buildings. Jesus worshipped in the Temple. I don’t see why we can’t worship in buildings as well.
“They may have other fruits, but this is the fruit they/you choose to talk about, not the One who is worshiped.”
The article is about the cathedral. If you think it is morally wrong to write such an article should you best take that up with the article’s author?
“Alex Murphy is good about “stirring the stuff” then watching the stink rise. He’s done it this time too.”
You ARE THE ONE DOING IT. Alex just posted an article. You’re the one whining about the fact that anyone is talking about it. Why are you blaming Alex?
“You choose to talk about the treasures here on earth.”
So you NEVER discuss anything other than Christ? You never watch a baseball game or read a book and discuss it? You never play a game with your kids or work in the yard? Come on! Get real.
“I choose to lay up treasures in Heaven where the creator of your building is. Otherwise, I don’t care to talk about your building anymore. If you choose to worship that, go ahead. I won’t bother you anymore.”
I don’t worship the building. Listen, just because you have no rational argument for your view doesn’t mean you should now accuse me of worshipping a building. Again, I think you might know Christ as you claim.
Please ping me the next time you talk about me.
