Dishonoring the Body

You ever have your dad tell you that you want to act in a way that does not besmirch the family name?  Psalm 69:6 pretty much says the same thing.  The notion is pretty clear we are to behave in such a way that we do not bring disgrace to the name of Christ or cause any of His followers dishonor through our actions.
Dishonoring the Body
There are some people who apparently have not read this verse.

Thinking through this passage I was reminded that Christ told us that we would not be well thought of as His followers, Luke 6:22, 26; Matthew 10:16 – 25.  Peter also tells us that we are going to suffer for doing what is right, 1 Peter 2:12, 20, 4:14.

We are to choose to behave in a way that does not bring disgrace to Christ or His Church, but we will suffer for doing so.

This Christian Life thing is not for cowards.
