It is no secret that mainstream Christianity and I parted ways years ago. I really couldn't put my faith behind a system that advertised inconsistency, and mixed messages. Seriously, when you listen to some of the most vocal fundamentalists, you have to wonder if they even read the bible.
It's Easter today. Christians all got gussied up and went to church, then came home to eat chocolate eggs left by a bunny. They are celebrating rebirth, the rebirth of their faith. It's spring, the time of year when the earth renews itself. Why don't we renew our religion? Why don't we listen and read and approach people with compassion?
Why don't we follow the advice that Jesus gave us during the Sermon on the mount? Let's not judge, lest we be judged, and let's treat others as we'd want to be treated.
There isn't enough of that from the the most vocal people, but it's how I strive live my life. (I need to work on the judging part.. I like gossip too much)
I'm not perfect. I'm not Christian. Does that make me bad?
I saw this. I don't find it offensive. What would a complete outsider (like from outer space) describe religion
"The belief that a cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because of a rib-woman who was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree."
How will people view you?
