Nothing Worse Than Lukewarmness

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
-Revelation 3:15,16

Interesting discussion I had with a coworker today related to the 2nd amendment. This guy claims to be conservative. He claims to be pro-2nd amendment. Yet talking to him is like talking to an anti-gunner.

Idiots ruin it for everybody.

I don't like the NRA, they are bullies.

The liberal media jump anything they can.

These are some of the things he said. Most of it was in reaction to an incident that occurred recently here in Michigan where a CCW holder shot another man during a road rage incident.

He immediately assumes the CCW holder was an idiot. Never mind that the other guy was tailgating, and the other guy got out of his car at a stoplight to confront the CCW holder. Sure, the CCW holder should not have been aggressive and should have just let this other guy, the real idiot, go. But the liberal media is painting the other guy as an innocent victim.

So my coworker jumps to the conclusion that the CCW holder was an idiot that never should have had a CCW. Maybe that is true. But don't,out of one side of your mouth, talk about the liberal media, then out of the other take everything they say as gospel.

So for the record, this coworker:

Claims to be pro-2nd amendment, but doesn't like the NRA, the main organization that fights to preserver the 2nd amendment.

Claims that the media is too liberal, but then falls for everything the media reports.

On top of it, he claims to be a Christian, but curses like sailor (okay he is ex-Navy but still).

To me that is the very definition of lukewarmness. Christ disliked lukewarmness, and said so in Revelation chapter 3. I understand why.

Here is the Free Press article related to this story. Notice how one-sided it is:

Note: This coworker sent this to a couple of us with the following subject line in the email: "Idiots with a CCW give program a bad name!"
