Matthew 16:18 (The Message)

"And now I'm going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.

Somtimes I think of the park as "the gates of hell" - a fortress of evil impervious to light. Someone pointed out to me tonight that gates are stationary. We have to go to the gates and kick the shit out of them. Jesus already said they won't prevail.

I wonder who Jesus would say that I am?

At the extreme risk of being hypocritical; "Go to the gates and kick the shit out of them"? "Smoking for Jesus"?
WHAT does the Bible say about "Blessings and cursings out of the same mouth..." ?

Maybe, I'm just bothered by this...but, if you are "Holy and "Blameless" does that mean doing whatever you want, and saying whatever you want in any context--even as it relates to ministry?
ie: "You're a piece of shit, filthy sinner, but, hey, i love you-in the name of Jesus!"???
