I still face rejection in the church today! How so, you might say? I’ve had many suggest that I should appear on the 700 Club or Sid Roth’s, It’s Supernatural and it’s not that I wouldn’t mind appearing on those shows. From the best I can figure from their response, my story is too supernatural for the 700 Club, who wants stories of redemption, but shy away from supernatural occurrences. On the other hand, It’s Supernatural is ready to share supernatural stories, so long as you overlook any of the supernatural occurrences by some of their guests that border on occultism. When it comes down to it, they want someone who will trample scorpions while uttering the key stereotypical words that will rally believers beside them. Amazingly, they have truth before their very eyes yet reject it if it does not fit what they have come to expect and are all too ready to settle for half-truths all due to entertainment value and ratings.
It doesn’t get to me like it used to as I’ve learned to “shake the dust off my feet” (See Matthew 10:14) and move on. And really, if there was anyone in the entire universe who understands rejection, Jesus does. He is God and yet faces the rejection of man each day and let’s be real, many Christian leaders today would be no different than the Pharisee of His day. In fact, they’d likely pass Him by because He had a hard message for the church that wouldn’t do so well for ratings.
When it comes to my testimony, I'll stick with non-fiction.
