to all you who have called me a heretic.
I voice my oppinion, call it oppinion, you insult me and call me a liar and a heretic. you use lies to prove that it is wrong for me to question that which cannot be proven. I call you on your lies, and you attack me with hatred and insults. when I write about facts, and question your hatred you call me a devil. when I speak out against your hatred you want to crucify me. If I am so bad and you are so good, then why is it that your words show the opposite. when you insult me and I fire back with insults, you call me childish. But Know this, it is devil’s who are the first to call others devils. If you take scripture out of context to try to prove your point you are ritcheous, if I use scriptures in their true context, I am out of line. Why is it that those who claim to have faith, are so fearful of any one who is not afraid to question the reasons why we believe. if you truly had faith, you would not be fearful of testing that faith. the problem with blind faith is that it is blind. Is it not Jesus who said that the blind could not lead the blind? Why is it that people who claim to follow the teachings of a man who said that the truth shall set you free, are fearfull of seeking the truth? let me ask you a question. do you worship god or do you worship a book? words in a book can easily be changed, god doesn’t change. so that is the choice that you must take. will you believe in that wich cann be corrupted, or that which is incorruptible? If you only believe in something only for fear of eternal damnation, do you truly believe it, or is fear the only thing you believe in? If fear is the oppossite of love and god is love, then what is fear? do you worship fear? so the next time you unfairly judge some one remember, by the measure which you judge, is the measure with wich you will be judged.

You may be baffled at the title of this article. I will explain. every one knows about the berlin wall. it was a wall that divided what was essentialy one people, and turned them into enemies. Religion also divides one people and divides them, and turns them against each other. Here I used the turn theology. This is because not only do the major religions separate us, but also different theologies within those religions. This is because of what I call the “I am right and you are wrong ” syndrome. Christians can’t get along with other christians, Muslims can’t get along with other muslims, hindu can’t get along with other Hindus. If we can’t get along with people with the same basic religious beliefs as us, How can we get along with people with different core beliefs?
Take christianity for example. If you put a bunch of preachers from different denominations together in the same room together, and have them discuss what it means to be a christian there would be a heated argument that would erupt into name calling, and possibly fist fights. You would essentially have christians acting very unChristian like. So of course they wouldnt get along with Hindus, Muslims or even Budhists for that matter. We let our preconceptions get in the way of our spirital growth, and in the way of building a global comunity (or al local one). We are so busy pointing out the differences in our beliefs , that we failt to see the similarities. Instead of seeking peace like our spiritual teachers, we march off to war. Will the crusades ever end, or ar we all doomed.
mister minister, tear down this wall.
peace to you all.
