From Eric Michael Bryant

Peppermint-Filled Pinatas - breaking through tolerance and embracing love

"More and more people seem to have the same attitude as the bumper sticker I see on cars around town: "Jesus, protect me from your followers." Who is to blame for this anti-Christian bias?....."

"We have created an environment where we are seen as judgmental, irrelevant, mean, and hypocritical."

"For far too long, the world has been made aware of what we as Christians hate rather than whom we love. When asked what Christians believe, most people would begin creating a "Don't Do" list. People are far more aware of what Christians are against than of what we support. Rather than hearing a call for true freedom, people feel unloved by Christians and therefore unloved by God because of our behavior."

Good thoughts and I am just starting the book.......always good to be reminded once in a while what this life really looks like to those who have not surrendered their lives to God as of yet.
