Legalism

We talk a lot about what it means to be a Christian around here.  How do we treat others, how we respond when things don't go our way, etc.  We also talk about the fact that some people/organizations make up rules that are extra biblical. 

For example, how you dress.  A common modesty 'rule' is that your skirt, shorts, bottoms need to be longer than your fingers when your arms are down at your side.  This explanation brings us to the conversation that happened at our house recently....

G and M went to walk on the treadmill and elliptical.  They were both wearing shorts that I bought last year for Gabrielle to sleep in. 

A asked G if her shorts were long enough and if they passed the "fingertip test'.  They didn't.   A pointed at her and said, "Oh no! You're a horrible Christian!"

And then we laughed.....really hard.
