Today I was reading the Parade Magazine, which comes in our Sunday Press. It had Miley Cyrus (oh excuse me Miley Ray) on the cover. I read the article and was taken back first of all by how rude this young lady is, but second and most importantly how her "christianity" is that of the world. Here is the whole article if you care to read it.
Is it hard being openly Christian in Hollywood?
“People are always looking for you to do something that is non-Christian,” she answers. “But it’s like, ‘Dude, Christians don’t live in the dark.’ I have to participate in life. If I wear something revealing, they go, ‘Well, that’s not Christian.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m going to go to hell because I’m wearing a pair of really short white shorts.’ Suddenly I’m a slut. That’s so old-school.” (This is still part of the quote, I don't know why it's not green)
How sad it is that people will read this and agree. "Let those people believe the way they want to believe. Sure I wish that they believed like I did, but who am I to tell them they are wrong?"
- Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost (Luke 19:10)
- He has called us to make disciples (Matthew 28:19)
- He has called us to preach the gospel (Mark 16:15)
I am about to type something that will shock some, but it is the TRUTH, and it needs to be said. If anyone, ANYONE believes there are other ways to heaven except through JESUS CHRIST, AND HIM CRUCIFIED, then they CANNOT (I cannot stress this enough) be a true follower of Christ. Christ himself says "I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, NO ONE comes to the Father EXCEPT THROUGH ME. John 14:6.
His words, not mine. Miley you need to take a good hard look at THE BOOK. Stop falling for this fallen worlds philosophies! The potential you have to do great things for Christ are being ruined (that is if you truly are a follower of THE CHRIST).
And girl don't even get me started on: Yeah, I’m going to go to hell because I’m wearing a pair of really short white shorts.’ Suddenly I’m a slut. That’s so old-school. Oh if I were your mother, first of all you wouldn't be wearing those really short white shorts, and I'd tan your hide for calling me dude so much!!!! Now that my friend is old-school, and I'm proud of it!
