It intrigues me.
People profess themselves to be moral, loving, upright, Christians and then they go about denying every possible precept and shouting down those who speak up to say that the world could be more loving, accepting, caring and just.
I do not judge these people. They are quite welcome on the road to peace. They are worthy, excellent human beings.
One just wonders where the problem lies, exactly.
I am often told to live in the "real" world.
Yet, even science has yet to find this place. The world, as far as logic and science can take us, is just about as unreal and fanciful as it could possibly be.
This "real" world is also filled with people saying "Be true to yourself!", "Love one another!", "do the RIGHT thing".
We do not seek riches, we seek the "real" world. Many of us share what we have with others when we can.
We are not perfect people. Far from it. But many are open to all possibilities of life, and open to all different kinds of people; Fat, thin, rich, poor, injured, blind, ugly, pretty. Doesn't matter.
Stand up for these people! Stand for inclusion! Welcome all comers! Preach the gospel of PEACE!
And you're shouted at. Stolen from. Made fun of. Belittled.
Of course that's what the bible says would happen.
It's just weird seeing it come from people who claim to base their life on the book you got these ideas from in the first place.
Do any Christians agree? Disagree? How about other faiths? or Non-faiths?
