One Man Versus the World

Exploring Daily Struggles of the Individual

Pure Religion

I find it very regrettable that Christianity has become nearly synonymous with hate. God hates fags. God hates war. God hates blacks. God hates money. God hates the rich. God hates the homeless.

All lies. Not just lies, all blasphemous.

What’s the last thing you heard about Christianity via social/popular media? What appears to be the character of various “popular” Christian leaders?

Just this morning (not even five minutes before writing this) I read an article titled something like “Christians declare Ebola a punishment from God.”

The world isn’t looking for a God who kills. The world is looking for love, purpose, meaning, strength, courage, and victory.

As Christians, we are here to be conduits of the love of God. Our God has called us to love and forgive. Let’s focus on sharing with the world, the love God has given us. Darkness is expelled by the presence of light. Let’s be a light in a dark place, not just another bruise on the face of Christianity.

If you don’t like, share, or re-post this, your neglect will cause the murder of an innocent frog in Indonesia. Do you really want to be responsible for the end of the world?

Stop it.

Cut it out.

Have you ever had a bowel movement? Urinated? Vomited? Passed gas? Stubbed a toe? Got angry? Wished something bad on someone? Lied?

A celebrity flashed a boob. John Smith gained weight. A cop shot someone. A new president was elected. He lied. A video game made a kid kill someone. A songwriter made someone commit suicide. A company is corrupt. There are wars going on. Innocent people are dying. We are the good guys.

I just farted.

I jammed my finger playing basketball.

I got mad at an old lady who was driving slow this morning.

The Kingdom of Heaven

From here to there
lie infinite spaces
one cannot navigate
till metamorphosis.

Zero to one’s
not a man-made conversion,
but a blessing received
from an unknown person.

This tunnel is narrow
and one of a kind,
cannot be replaced
by an alternate mind.

There at the end
you will find the unknown:
the Kingdom of Heaven,
the home of God’s own.
