Alright, here’s my official response, 124 words. And if there is a way to delete the comments I’d love to know because I posted some thinking that I could edit or remove them later and I can’t get red of them now.
I agree, and I am a great example of the Christian who is selfish. Sometimes the only reason I don’t just slam a brick into my brother’s nose is because I would get in huge trouble – obviously a very selfish reason. There’s another, much more subtle, example of selfish motives worth considering – have you ever been watching a TV show or movie about sharing? What is the motivation that media gives you for sharing? Is it “share because sharing is what God says is right,” or is it “share because it gives you such a nice, warm feeling – because it makes you feel good about yourself”? Unless you only watch Veggie Tales, it was probably the latter. Well that’s selfishness – it’s still about you.
