A Delicate Balance
Realizing that I held nothing but resent and hate towards government and control was especially difficult because of my Christian faith. Christians are raised to believe that being such requires following the rules, as though God Himself instated them. I've come to realize that this is so opposite from true. I follow God's rules and nobody else's. If this mean breaking human laws, then so be it, because what is right is right and in God's eyes the laws of the land mean absolutely nothing. Furthermore, I've come to realize that the Christian message is, or should be, one primarily of love and peace - the government and all its military actions are acting directly against God, whether they will admit it or not. I am hopeful that some day all these "Christians" in political office will wake up and realize that everything they do is in direct defiance of their Lord.
Come to think of it, who was a bigger radical than Jesus himself?
