I believe many of us need cut loose the “Christian Bill of Rights” today. You may be thinking but “Pastor I did not know there was such a thing! What are they?” Well glad you asked here are the Christian Bill of Rights:

a. We Christians have the right to seek God and ask Him to tell us what we should do so that when He does tell us we can decide whether we want to do it or not.

i. We have freedom of choice.

b. We Christians have the right to treat Jesus as our vehicle to success rather than as our Lord since He wants us to prosper.

i. We have the right to success

c. We Christians have the right to pick and chose which Scriptures we can break because we live under grace.

i. We have the right to continually experience grace.

d. We Christians have the right to decide our own future employment and career since God loves us and wants us just to be happy.

i. We have the right to pursue happiness the word tells us!

e. We Christians have the right to choose to give out of our surplus and we don’t have to give if it hurts because God understands my special situation.

i. We have the right to decide when to give.

f. We Christians have the right to judge others especially the leadership of the church since we are as wise as God.

i. We have the right to be little gods.

g. We Christians have the right to pursue money since it all belongs to God anyway.

i. We have the right to our inheritance early.

h. We Christians have the right to a very entertaining church service since God is in the entertainment business.

i. We have the right to kept entertained at church.

i. We Christians have the right to never suffer because only Jesus did that.

i. We have a right to a perfect stress free life.

j. We Christians have the right to our own ministry and we get to pick where and when.

i. We have a right dictate how we will minister.


This list is hyperbolic and dramatic bit for some in the church this is their Christian Bill of Rights but the problem is it’s not Biblical!
