Are You a Ned Flanders?

When you see Jesus. be sure to call him Mr. Christ!
- Ned Flanders, the Simpsons

Ned Flanders, you know that guy from The Simpsons in tacky mustache, thick glasses, pink shirt and extra green pullover?

Yeah. That guy.

A lot of people today see Christians as the Ned Flanders of the world. That Christians are people who generally suck at social life, who don't drink or smoke, or watch Rated R movies. People who are corny because they choose not to have sex before marriage. People who are trapped in a bottle of mystical beliefs and whatnot.

That all we need to do is to dress like him to complete the part.

But Christianity isn't like Ned Flanders at all.

When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, it means that he accepts everything that we are and forgets everything that we were. It means that there is no condemnation. In Romans 8:1-2, it says, "1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death".

If we set in our hearts the faith of what Jesus did for you and me, and if we die to sin and start living for God, that is what we mean by being his disciples. By being a true follower of Christ.

Not being some guy with a mustache.
