‘Be a good Christian’ – why can’t I just be a good person?

They say be a good Christian…. why can’t I just be a good person?

Is that not good enough for god? Why can’t my good morals be god enough?

Ever asked yourself; ‘what is my purpose?’

We spoke in our meeting on Friday 6th May about Purpose, which can be defined as:

– the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
or
– a person’s sense of resolve or determination.
Purpose is such a broad term which led to very different and personal experiences based on how each of us look at our purposes in life.

Do Christians over-spiritualise things?

WHAT IS OVER-SPIRITUALISING?

Simply put, the act of ‘over’-spiritualising is the placing a greater spiritual significance on something than you should.

Supernatural is something that can’t often be explained. For example, having such a powerful dream too difficult to put into words. Only the dreams and things that we have experienced can only truly be explained through our own words.

Should Christians listen to secular music?

This meeting was really energetic and engaging – it was based on a topic that every single person in the room encounters on a daily basis, has different views of, and definitely has an opinion, or two about!

“I play secular music depending on my mood, it just makes me feel good”

“As long as I’m careful not to let the words sink into my spirit, then there’s no harm listening to secular music”
