I am a Christian at a Christian school. I transferred here from a secular school where if people weren’t your friends they didn’t care about you. I came to a Christian school because I wanted not only a Christian education, but to be in a place where people you didn’t even know loved you.
The column written in last Wednesday’s paper saddens me. Not only was it sad to see that our minds are focused on people instead of God during worship, but instead of privately confronting those who are distracting us we would feel it necessary to write an article about it and publicly humiliate them. How hurt these people must feel that they were slammed in every Optimist that went out that day. What a horrible message we sent out about Christians that we would bash one of our own. How much more ashamed should we feel that we would criticize and judge someone else’s worship of the Father. Who are we singing to in Chapel? God or men? We did not deal with this situation in love; we did it out of frustration and irritation.
I would like to just say to those who sing to God with all their hearts, that I admire you. So while some of us sit in Chapel, like the Pharisees, paying more attention to how we sound and appear, please continue to model for us a passionate and zealous desire to worship our magnificent God without hesitation and without fear of condemnation, and know that blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Him.
