In the past six months I have struggled with church, sermons, Christians, and the Bible, all are so contradictory. I believe in God with all of my heart and soul, as well as, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Trinity is very uniform and uncontradictory but people are not.
Humans have interjected subjectively to create a world of religions and beliefs that have resulted in hate, racism, and that only certain people are good enough for God and heaven. These choices have pitted one against the other for centuries. Isn’t it time we all come together and realize God loves us all and is very capable of loving each of us no matter what. After all, we are His children and any loving parent must admit the love of a child is overwhelming. God’s love for His children is stronger than any mere mortal can conceive.
If one of my children said he were gay I would still love and cherish him and God will love and cherish him without judgement nor condemnation.
If my children turned to Buddhism or Judaism or whatever religion, I would still love and cherish them and God, with His omnipotent, will too. God did not create religion. God does not expect a herd of cattle here. He expects love, kindness, understanding, all that is good, for He is all about good, love and light.
God even loves the liars, cheats, racists, thieves, rapists, murderers, the evil that abounds is still loved by God. He, I’m sure, is very disappointed, as we would be if our child were evil. We may walk away from an evil child and disown him although deep in our heart we would still love and pray for him. God does not walk away from any of His children, He still loves them. We, as His children, are to compassionately care and guide each other to create a world of love without judgement. God will judge. I’m not saying that evil people should be free to joust their evilness upon us; they need to be incarcerated for the safety of all. What I am saying is God knows His children the good and the evil. God knows what is inside of each of us. I mean deep inside not the superficial face the world sees and God will judge in heaven, with His omniscience, each of us.
Imagine, if you will, the most pious Christian dies and goes to heaven. There entering the pearly gates he sees God for the first time and God resembles Buddha. This very well could be what God looks like and what a blow that would be to the most pious Christian. I, myself, do not care what God looks like because I know that He loves us all.
I pray for a world of love and understanding. Harm none!
