"R" Rated Faith
Last Wednesday I talked about having "R" Rated Faith. I Googled the MPAA movie ratings sytem and reworded the descriptions to describe a person's faith. Here's a brief synopsis:
G = General Audience. Contains nothing in theme, language or lifestyle that would offend the status quo. There may be some snippets of talk about God, but they are common everyday expressions. Depictions of self-sacrifice are minimal.
PG = Partial Guidance. Some talk about Jesus as Savior and some depictions of self-sacrifice, but these are not deemed so intense as to require following the Biblical standard of living out your faith other than when at church or with the "Church Crowd."
R = Resticted. Depictions of activities related to a more mature nature. It is both realistic and extreme realizing there is a war going on in the spiritual realm for the souls of man. Their relationship with Jesus is taken very seriously. There are not the same, but have been transformed. "There's more to them than meets the eye." According to sceptics, this type of faith does not exist, "but when all else fails, they don't." This type of faith accelerates the possessor beyond normal human parameters by the power of the Holy Spirit. Parents and peers are strongly urged to find out more about how this "Restricted" faith can change everything!
