Hello Friends, Neighbors, NSA auditors - how bored you must be - and other friendly psychotics.... ;)
I noticed this on a surf, thought it interesting. The belief in God is not hand in hand with giving disrespect and abuse to His creations, but it sure seems that way sometimes. I do believe in God, I do believe that He is real - in some fashion I'll likely never understand, and that's ok. I believe He doesn't need me to cast judgement. He's a big boy, and can handle His own business. I believe that all He really needs from me is to love what He loves, to respect Him enough to care for His creations, and to be as good a person as I can manage. And, if in the end, I find that there is no God, there is no Heaven, then if I have made a "heaven" about me, I've lead a good life, I've helped all I could and made no-one feel less than important, then it's been a good life. On the other hand, if I am judgemental, mean, etc.... would I want to follow a God that finds such pleasing?
