Christians are so heavenly-minded they're no earthly good."
think that can be a reality in some cases, but the problem is usually religiosity.
People get caught up in all the externals of faith, like maintaining perfect
church attendance, putting on Christmas pageants (grrrr), generally going
through the motions, and completely losing focus of the real goal which
is to become a disciple of Christ and develop a Christ-like character.
of the most spiritually rewarding Sundays I had was when I turned around
after heading out to church and just came home. I realized I was going just
because it was Sunday. Where's the heart in that?? I instead read the Bible
a while, prayed, and thought a lot about what the motive for worship really
ought to be. That may or may not be an example of being heavenly-minded
in an appropriate way, but at least it was cognizant of what worship ought
who is truly heavenly-minded will be of great earthly good. You can never
meet enough of these people.
Are Christians judgmental?
What is "Christian"?
