And there's also a song that goes with it. It's a song about a smooth-talking, long-tall, slow-walking, dollar-store made-up dude, who's all dressed up looking like the Marlboro Man. Starched shirt, starched jeans, big trophy buckle and an empty Copenhagen can. You see him standing there blabbing his mouth....all with a fake Texan drawl........talkin' cowboy this and cowboy that........but the closest he's been to a cow is watching an old John Wayne movie. He's all hat and no cattle, the guy just ain't real.
It's incredible to see many a hat with no cattle in the household of faith....sounding brass, tinkling cymbal......all.
Tongue talking, prophecy spewing, mountain moving, prayer warrior.........but blind to the need of mere mortals all around.
"If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. 1 Corithians 13: 1-3"
Oh yes he's careful to tithe even the tiniest income........the rue, the mint, and all.........but ignores justice and the love of God......
When a needy brother comes along asking for help, he tells him,‘.....Sorry, I can’t help you. For I have vowed to give to God......Corban..........what I would have given to you....."
Of course he loves the Lord..........yet
"If a man says, “I love God,” but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar...1 John 4:20"
He goes to church, virtually lives in the church. He prays every single day, many times a day. He's the first at church programs, his voice the loudest, and his hands raised the highest, during praise and worship. What a piety to the deity.
"....if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? 1 John 4:20"
All hat, no cattle. What a shame to God's Name.
