Being a single Christian adult is important, powerful, and beautiful in the Kingdom of God.
I do not stand with Israel Folau, and it is neither helpful nor necessary, nor wise, nor Biblical, for other Christians to "stand" with him as has been recently proposed.
Why place the Bible, which the first Christians didn't have, as a higher authority than the Holy Spirit, which they did have?
Over the past two years I’ve been made aware of a culture of “Christian elitism” within more traditional church circles. Unfortunately, many people have bought into this culture – some without even realising. And sadly, it has not only been exacerbated by laypeople and students, but by ministers and teachers of the Word.
More and more Christians seem to be jumping on this bandwagon of (what I like to call) “context shaming” other Christians; and it’s not healthy.
