Church folk are scary sometimes

 I have talked about my faith on here a few times and I have also discussed some of the struggles I have had with my faith.  Today I really began to think about how some "church folk" scare me. Now what do I mean by that?  Well...if as Christians we are supposed to be representatives of Christ then why when I watch television or even people watch at church the most zealous people scare me?

I am not talking about the people who are passionate about their faith, but the people who are just plan crazy. I might be wrong for saying some of the things that I am saying, but just my thoughts and I am putting them out there. A while ago I wrote a post about an encounter I had with a lady at my church and honestly....she might be a really nice lady, but her demeanor and the way she looks and approaches you is a huge turn off. There is this other lady at church who goes around and just stares at you and then she shakes your hand then goes and sits down.  She just weirds me out. 

When I watch some of the religious folks on television I question how did you get a show and is this a good representative of Christ? Everyone has a past and everyone has a testimony, but if the way you present it or the way you look distracts from people hearing about it then what is the point?

I don't want to offer to many specific examples. I know people are still growing and people are different, but some things just don't make sense to me.

Just some more of my random thoughts....OH! On twitter I mentioned a bog post inspired by my best friend, this is not it. That one is still formulating in my mind...just can't grasp my thoughts yet. But is about if black men should defend and take up for black women.
