I am bothered. Last night I went to the Youth Alive Praise Night, a gathering of Christians for the worship of God. I'm not Christian, or what you would normally call a Christian, because I'm a Mormon. And Mormon or not, I went to see what it's all about. For the last year I have attended some Christian Youth Groups, namely HOC3 and Agape Vineyard (Sam Chen's and Angela Ha's church), so I went (curious) to see the rest of the Christian Community here at MSJ.

There were about 300 people there, (I approximate because I really don't know) and some, man, I can't believe are Christian, or that they call themselves Christian. Before I go any further, let's decide how we should define a Christian.

1.) s/he believes in Christ
2.) s/he attempts to live in the way of the Lord (WWJD?)
3.) s/he goes to church, whichever church it may be
4.) s/he is generally a nice person, a good citizen, and loves everyone and treats everyone with respect
5.) s/he lives modestly, and understands there are 6 billion other people in the world who don't live nearly as lavishly as s/he does
6.) s/he

Last night i attended the Youth Alive Praise Night. I stayed for forty-five minutes. I arrived at 8:02PM and I was impressed to see 300 people there. (That's big, man. Props to Jen Chiu.) They were finishing their last worship song, and the lights were off. When the lights came on I saw the faces of numerous Mission students, people I see everday in a day of the life of Alex Cheung.
