Guilt – What Is It Good For?

~ R. U. Wacko

So many minister spend their time lecturing their members and making them feel guilty. I like to feel good about my religion. Who wants to listen to people not sing a tune because they don’t know it? I like to sing familiar songs. I like to hear a positive message. I like to read the paper at the same time.

There are a lot of sad faces in church on Sunday mornings. The minister should make these people feel happy to be there by proclaiming and teaching from the pulpit that “God loves you and so I”. He should not be making them feel guilty for being there.

I don’t like to hear guilt preaching. I also resent preaching about the Devil. The idea that the devil is waiting for me to weaken for a moment so he can then control my life is ludicrous. I have never experienced a breath of the devil. If he lives he has not tried to influence my life. There is no reason for me to blame faults or weaknesses or actions or inactions on a devil. If it makes me feel bad to take the blame for myself I can always blame my wife.

I know people that blame their spouse or boyfriend for everything no matter how ridiculous it is to do so.
