Have you ever wondered why the world is the way that it is? Why members of churches no longer attend?
Whatever happened to those so called Christian Compassionate Conservatives on the Republican side as they choose to rule with the iron fist. Do they believe they are God for casting judgement? Or, is that God’s job? How is it that Christians forgot so quickly about the gospel they promised to live by when it comes to the immigration issue?
These so-called Christian compassionate types are also anti-Muslim, anti-Gay, and anti-everything.
Are they really that miserable?
For instance, if God gave us free will, what gives us the right to force our will on others? When people try to force themselves or their beliefs on us, it backfires. When will RELIGIONS figure out that whoever “loves” the most through their compassionate actions … this will naturally cause more to attend their churches? Instead….it’s a place of competition through force or fear …. and I’m not sure that will work in a ‘religious’ setting.
I believe love is more powerful than evil destructive forces. I think love attracts more people to that? In any event, why can’t we just let it be? Why can’t we just let others do what they want so long as they do no harm? [Now keep in mind that the God in the Christian bible gave man free will, right?]
Don’t get me wrong…if I see a bully threatening and beating up others…the natural reaction is to defend the weak who is being dominated by the bully. We can’t turn a blind eye to bullies killing others either.
I think religions who preach love, are what’s really broken here. Religious leaders blame government, when it is the religious leaders who are supposed to be in charge of this so called “love department thing” and they are a big part of the problem themselves when we see love fading with regard to neighbors.
Government is worried about the ethics department, while organized religious are “supposed” to have higher moral standards, right?
So who is really to blame here?
The one with the lower standards? Or, the one religious leaders who are supposed to be of moral authority and who claim to have “higher” standards?
