“Sadly, there is at least one Baptist minister that doesn’t think Jesus is the answer.”~priest

I just had a most confusing God Spot.  While hanging out at Starbucks during lunch, I overheard a guy next to me setting up sales appointments on his cell phone.  I thought what a great segway into asking, “Have you ever seen God do anything for you?”  So, I asked what he was selling.  Turns out it was insurance.  God bless him.
.
I listened respectfully to his pitch, but interrupted when he said that most marriages failed because of financial pressures.  I agreed, but questioned if both parties were focused on Christ wouldn’t you think the marriage would survive.  He was sure that was NOT the case.  He was firm that it was all about finances, so I asked if He had ever seen God do anything in his life.  He said he was a Baptist minister and could very definitely remember when he was saved at the age of nine.  I’m guessing that was 60 years, ago.
.
Now, I am not Baptist bashing.  I am a Baptist, but I am a follower of Christ first.  My confusion is a disbelief on his part that Christ was the answer to divorce and then advertising himself as a Baptist minister.  I really don’t get it.  Christ is always the answer.  If Christ is not the answer, you need to take down your shingle: “Baptist Minister Here”.

I am just saying and can’t type fast enough to share my astonishment.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. This is a struggle for people when they try to live life with a double mind. This is why people like us experience so much spiritual warfare.
    Jesus is the answer for everything . I have had huge money at my disposal, and not two nickles to call a dime, I could honestly say, that my family has only become stronger through adversity . I would never compromise giving Glory to God over a sale , if we rely on the worlds economy and not God’s, then we have to really take a close look at our faith.
    It is my opinion, that this was no Baptist Minister, rather just one wearing the hat for the day, armed with enough scripture to get a client to sign on the dotted line. I assure you, he will have his reward.

  2. It is telling that when you asked him about a God Spot, he could only respond with something that happened when he was a child. I can’t imagine the couples he may have helped along on the path to divorce by not believing the truth. Truly sad!
