My Christian Rights

I have seen this quote in a couple of different places. But I am not sure who was the one who first said it. And this may be more of a paraphrase than a true quote but it will get the original point across.

"My Christian rights are to be treated exactly and precisely as the world treated my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ ... and nothing else." - Unknown

It makes you think, doesn't it?

Reminds me of a saying i have heard for just about as long as i can remember....."We (christians) aren't supposed to be doormats, we have RIGHTS!"
That has always bothered me. Exactly what "right" does a slave have? The answer is "to serve and obey his Master". Doesn't Scripture tell us that if we desire to live Godly we will suffer persecution, and that if we do not forsake ALL we CANNOT be His disciple....so again i ask....what rights?

Amen Pastor John, you are right, it does get you thinking! I'm so easy to get offended, I need to remember this.

Pastor John,
The only people who demand their rights, are those who feel deprived of them. Interesting that a "Christian" would demand THEIR rights.

ladiocea= rights of the people.
As Christians we belong to Christ, we are at His disposal.
