What could have incited these readers to such fury?
The use of the word “sexy.”
Unfortunately when the publisher reposted my blog, they didn’t include the first line…
Sexy – generally attractive or interesting : appealing <a sexystock> Miriam Webster (M-W.com)
I don’t know why that was not included by the publisher, but I’m sure it would have given a lot more clarity and context to those who were reading it.
I stand by my choice to use the word “sexy” in the post. When used in the context as it was intended, I think it drives the point of the post…we should be “attractive and appealing” to those who are not yet in the Kingdom.
Why would someone attack my character because I used “sexy.”
I would not trust this pastor/author to be alone with children-perhaps he would teach them the importance of being “sexy” in the Sunday school class.
A complete departure of the message of the true gospel of Jesus Christ. And it gives me the impression, that the author is pre-occupied with obsessive sexual thinking in his own mind, and most probably has a private porn addiction
I see such attacks on me by people who know nothing about me as the very reason I wrote the post in the beginning. If a “christian” would be so judgmental and quick to slander someone just because they disagree with the use of a term, only proves they don’t have the right heart toward people.
If you are mean to those who are running with you to see the Kingdom of God expanded, you would certainly be cruel and unloving to someone outside the Kingdom who does something you disagree with.
If you act like a jerk…People will think Jesus is a jerk
