Today, let me show you what discernment is, and why Christian leaders must teach their followers to use discernment instead of real critical thinking skills.
Almost all Christians believe that they possess the power to do magical things. Of course, this isn’t ickie, off-limits magic. This is magic powered by their faith in their god. It’s more like a superpower he grants them just for being such powerfully faithful Christians. I nicknamed it Jesus Power.
the first place, they tend to fail utterly at any accuracy. And evangelicals can’t help but make endless specific predictions. Today, I want to show you a whole bunch of evangelical prophecies–and then, let’s see how they actually turned out.
Christians love callings that represent a complete reversal of expectations. They enjoy stories about unexpected, inverted expectations. However, these stories must end the correct way.
In Christianese, a calling represents Jesus’ orders for what his followers are meant to be doing with their lives. But in reality, finding one’s calling works in a very prosaic–and earthly–way. Even then, it doesn’t work at all the way that Christians think it does.
