Non-Fiction: Life Goal

[Key Word: CROWD]

“What do you want to be when you grow up, Angela?“

“I want to be a criminal.“

*cue record screeching cringe*

Wait- What?

Perhaps you think I’m joking. After all, who would write something like this?

But what if I told you that it wasn’t written in jest?

2 Timothy 3:1-5 + Isaiah 5:20 + Amos 5:7 + [2 Peter 2:1] + Malachi 3:15 + Romans 7:21

There may come a time in our lifetime, when good is viewed as bad, and bad as good. Moral relativism is a thing.

In fact- It’s already happening, as you will see if you so much as turn on the news or glance at the news page.

What do I want to be when I grow up?

I don’t want to be a passive Christian who goes along with the ways of the world and simply does the bad along with the good.

I don’t want to be a Christian who when others hear of my beliefs they’ll think- “Really? I didn’t know she was any different than us.“

I don’t want to be a Christian who idly sits by the fight and refuses to join in because they might lose something. Or the person who sits by the sidelines and doesn’t cheer.

What do I want to be when I grow up?

Well if following Christ is a crime in the world I’m growing up in-

If trying to stand out from the crowd of *bad* and be a *light* is a crime-

And if wanting to actively be trying to accomplish objective “good“ and fight against the objective “bad“ that has been flipped around is a crime-

Well then.

What do I want to be?

I want to be a criminal.

Romans 1:16

What about you? What do you want to be when you grow up?
