Have you ever noticed?

Have you ever noticed that recovering alcoholics and smokers are the one's who seem to notice smoke or alcohol when it's around? They can't stand to be around it because it reminds them of a bad habit that they have kicked. Maybe that is why it is so hard for me to see the hypocrisy of Pharisee's. I was one! I used to stick my foot in my mouth more often than not. I can't believe how I use to act. I'm still reading "THE GUTTER" by Craig Gross and it is very insightful. It also makes me angry. I don't know what makes me angrier, the Pharisees he exposes in his book or the unfortunate fact that 15 years ago, I was one of them! Gross and his partner Mike are missionaries to the Porn industry. You know who gives them the most grief? Who opposes them the most? You guessed it the church! Ouch! Who needs Christ more, the healthy or the sick? The sick. We need to remember that when we get in the "gutter" it is ugly. When we minister to lost people, they will act like lost people. Why should we think any differently? I will continue to expose Pharisees because I know how they think. I know the self-righteousness. I know the holier than thou attitudes. Why? Because I'm still a recovering Pharisee!

Neil,

Joe pointed out there was a virus or something with it. When I removed it the pop-ups went away. So I canned it! I start this Sunday!

The really wierd part about being a recovering Pharisee too is that sometimes I become judgmental toward Pharisees. Isn't that Pharisaical of me?
