I remember another example; going to movies (again, that was on the “list” of things to stay away from) so what do you do as a good little Christian who wants to appear holy? Only go to movies when you are out of town… that way no one will know! I guess its like – if no one sees me do it, I didn’t do it?
To me this is an ultimate integrity breach! I talk to so many people who stay far away from God and Church for that very reason! For God knows all and sees all, and we should live to please God.
When I was in Bible College an instructor actually said and I quote, “familiarity breeds contempt”. That is one of the stupidist thing I've ever heard! Jesus was familiar with his people! Here is a quote to hang your hat on, “Familiarity only breeds contempt when you are doing something contemptible”... and hiding is contemptable... not only that YOU HIDE because you are doing something contemptable! I believe if you are REAL, AUTHENTIC and HONEST with your life then the more people know about the real you the more they love and appreciate you and your life before God!
