Wording of this Handout:
What interesting animals chameleons are. They can perch on a branch without moving, look in two different directions at the same time, and kill insects from a long distance away with their tongues.
What interesting creatures inconsistent Christians are. They can go through life without actually doing anything for Jesus immobile and useless. They can look at the worldly and the sacred with both eyes and never focus completely on either of the two things. And they can shoot out their tongue and say deadly things, bringing misery and division to fellowships.
Another thing chameleons do is blend in with their surroundings. You?d think they were just part of the furniture they change so effectively to fit in. And who respects them for it?
Christians don?t respect them because they have compromised the faith. Unbelievers don?t respect them because they are hypocrites. God certainly doesn?t respect them either. Jesus made it clear that people can be either FOR him, or NOT for him, so the chameleon Christian has nowhere to go but down.
Jesus said ?He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathers not with me scatters? Luke 11:23 (King James Version)
