Klingon’s, Christians, and Critics!

Klingon Lifestyles

I am constantly blown away by the blind arrogance of critical people. I have actually witnessed a guy dressed up like a Klingon, tell me, “Christians are stupid, and only a complete moron would participate in that kind of stuff.”  I’ve also listened to the penniless literary snob, scoffing at the pitiful writing style of Stephenie Meyer’s.  Another time, I chuckled listening to a preacher behind the pulpit of a 15-person congregation expose Joel Osteen as a charlatan, shouting, “he doesn’t know how to preach the real gospel.” And lastly, I knew a homeless musician explain how “Madonna doesn’t know how to sing or entertain an audience.”


In the end, each of us has a pet peeve, or a person that agitates us, but what value is there in building yourself up through demeaning other people. Ultimately, what a person chooses to believe (or not believe), how he or she lives, will manifest a destiny. At the end of our lives, it’s not all about the money, the fame, or the glory, but it’s how we feel about our existence (No Jesus Juking allowed). I don’t dismiss the importance of responsibility, discipline, and goal setting, but doesn’t history teach us that some of the greatest icons in each of these areas failed miserably in finding true happiness?

Today I encourage you to get up off your tail, and go make the world a better place. Be a friend to someone who doesn’t have a friend, write something nice for a person who annoys you, help an underdog feel appreciated, or just be nice, because it is the right thing to do. Remember, it is never wrong to do right, and it is never right to do wrong. Even your criticism can have a purpose.

P.S.      Oh, I forgot one additional annoying person… I know this self-righteous blogger, who schemes up creative ways to get people to read. Geez, those kind of folks are the worst!
