Practice ToleranceI identify my self as a Christian.. I rarely go to church or study the bible.. soooo maybe, just maybe I'm not grasping why it's so important to some people to argue, defend, push, punch and kill other's in the name of religion. I don't have any investment in your choice of religious practices.. Not my business, hey, feel free to believe what you want, I will do the same. Doesn't make sense to KILL someone for any reason.. but to kill someone because they have different religious beliefs.. well let just say the irony does not escape me. Also..so, this morning I was flipping through the channels and came across the 700 club, I paused to hear what he was talking about and as it turns out he was about to start a prayer for those who want to spend eternity in heaven. I thought.. well, I wanna go to heaven and I said the prayer with him. After we completed the prayer and with tears in my eyes lifted my head to the t.v. to see the preacher holding up and item in his hand. Was it a bible..? No, it was his CD he was trying to sell. That irritates me no end! I find it so distasteful! I don't like the divisiveness, the manipulation used so he can make a buck. I mean, there I was.. humbled, vulnerable, spiritually yearning. The perfect time to go over the teachings of the bible.. but no. In his estimation, this was the perfect time to hock his cheesy wares. Sad..and disheartening.
