Being a Christian

The dominant Christian voice today in this country does not reflect the majority of Christians or Christian beliefs in this country.  They simply are the loudest voice and get the air time.  For the majority of Christians in this country today they seek to follow the ways of Jesus by being a welcoming church to all people.  The actions of these churches reach out to the poor in a variety of ways as well as those who in this society are looked upon with suspicion because of class, race, economic status and sexual identity. 

It is fairly simple if one looks at the teaching so Jesus in the Gospels and his actions.  Jesus reached out to those the dominant powers of his day rejected, women, the blind, the lame and those from a different religious background or country of origin. 

The dominant powers that be in a number of countries today and in history and sadly in this country are acting the same as they always have, be dominant and oppressive to someone, somewhere so the rulers may have their way.  A portion of the Christian church today has latched onto the coat strings of power in this country and in the end they will face the consequences of that action.  Jesus did not align himself with the powers that be.  He looked at the heart of the person.

Mayflower Church and the United Church of Christ try to follow Jesus’ teachings and are far from the dominant legalistic church of today.  We attempt not only to follow in the ways of Jesus, not rejecting anyone and striving for a just world for all but also to learn from the teachings of Jesus how we are to live out our lives in service to God by loving God and one another.

If you are tired of the rantings of the conservative religious voice in America today, know that you have a choice and it is not just this denomination, although we would love to have you worship with us, but several mainline denominations today live out the Gospel as it was meant to be in the world.
