MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Bad Religion’ – And The Institution (Part 4) by AremuorinPosted: November 12, 2015
“Whether it’s politics or religion. It’s the same plot. They are just, simply, different characters “. – Anthony Everest
I know some Christian’s both young and old, who ought to know better, who get vehemently crossed with their; inner circle, friends, when they engage – those; they, consider to be, non xtainly – enough, for them. I’m like – seriously. Is that what Jesus taught? These calibre’s, remind me the types who denied kids access to Jesus. Far from it. Did Jesus not befriend a whore, and was his Nan, ‘Rahab’ – not a whore?
The joke is, that; they – are the worst. Worse, than the very, alleged unbelievers – they’ve condemned outright. For the unbelievers came in their loving truths. While they the wannabe – religious fanatics, came; with their hateful – intolerance and heresies. #HaveYouForgotten #BadReligion #WhoAmIToJudge.
I say to them – the same way; gays, are judged, and the harlots, are the ways – every one of those religious fanatics will be judged. Lets play this scenario out. If peradventure – God Is Real., and it transpires Hell is real and that the bible is legit; what you are actually saying is that -: If you eat pork – you are sinner and you are going to hell.
If you have sex out-of-wedlock – you are a sinner and going to hell. If you have tattoos – you are a sinner and you are going to hell. If you have sex with your spouse during her time of the month – you are a sinner, and you are going to hell. This is just a white wash!
Thank God for Jesus. We’d all be going to hell – in that case. So, why is Jesus’s Grace good enough for them; but not for the whores, or gays ..’ ? It was good enough for Lazarus (the leaper) and it was good enough for Mary Magdalene (the whore) – Jesus was! And if Jesus was good enough for them – Jesus is good enough for me and Jesus is good enough for you. You only have to believe. atone, and allow him in. He takes care of the rest. These ridiculous people need to go and read their bibles again and top up on the Holy Spirit.
Then, try again – before condemning; anyone in the name of God. I use gays and whores, as examples of the worst thing you could liken a sinner unto. There are lots of stereotyped, human behaviours; considered sin, to religious fanatics. Moses – who parted the red sea – was a murderer, himself, and that’s just one, of many character flawed, people, in the bible, who God used in mammoth ways. I think to be human is a sin – cuz humans aren’t perfect, and that’s the only crime to religion. Mercy!
This epidemic of self-professed – righteousness is a total delusion. Why do you think Jesus loved Mary Magdalene – (the outcast) above his disciples – and revealed the ‘Good News’ to her first – on resurrection day? Because – people like those wannabe religious fanatics, would keep it to themselves. Just as, they’ve tried to, write her out; of the gospels, even thou, she knew more about Jesus, than they. She was barely mentioned in the Bible. Neither credited with a full glorious, book of accounts, of her story.
Fishy – if you asked me? Bad Religion! It’s typical of how religious institutions treat, or see the world. If you have the light, reflect the light. Don’t dim the light. And, if they refuse the light – fair dues; move it on. If you don’t, who will?
The light is Love*. Loving your neighbour as yourself. The greatest of all the teachings of Jesus – which religious institutions flaw ridiculously. I see the wisdom in Jesus taking the Good news to her first. – #HaveYouForgotten #BadReligion #WhoAmIToJudge.
