We all like to be in control…

We all like to be in control, as evidenced by Jesus’ disciples trying to stop an exorcist who does not belong to the inner Christian circle.  Well, just as we have to be little children to stand with Jesus, we also do not have a say about who is in and who is out.  Speaking well and believing in Jesus constitutes membership.  Making ourselves the gatekeepers to the kingdom may just be a sin, according to St. James.  It is not a moral evil but wanting control all the time is not a noble act, and a sin of what “I failed to do.”
