So your mad at the world, made at your country, upset with the violence, discussed with the TV and radio media, disturbed with the politicians, and even angry with God. The church has let you down, your country is going to hell in a hand basket, you search for answers but all you hear are the issues. No answers can be found. When searching you only find reasons why every concept will not work leaving zero answers for a remedy. Pointing the finger is the first reaction of most and many times the only reaction. Every minority and majority wants their rights regardless of color, race, religion, way of life and could care less about anyone else as long as they get their way. Many times these different groups speak out against others just because they don’t agree with their point of view or beliefs even when they have never taken the time to understand each other. When a majority is made up of many minorities like the Christianity and Muslim religious beliefs, they don’t even agree with each other within each group. Everyone is out for themselves and strongly desire that the rest of the world believe their way of thinking but won’t give an inch towards comprehending the other side. All you see is hate and very little love. Kindness many times just doesn’t exist. One faith despises another – it’s their way or the highway in spite of the fact most of them preach “Love”. When will it all end????
Ok, I must stop myself. But does this feel like you on occasion or possible most everyday? So what are the answers?
1) Is it Gods fault that bad things happen?
2) Is it mans fault that bad things happen?
3) Is it money that drives everything?
4) What happened to: “Love your neighbor as yourself?”
5) What happened to: “Do onto others as you would like them to do to you?”
If we try to sum things up just a little we might recognize that if there is no God as some believe, than it must be man (man/women) that is messing with things and causing all the problems.
The other side of the coin is that there is a God (which many believe) that started everything. If He created everything and then added man (man/woman) then what we see is pretty good except for how man has turned out. So I would suggest that man again is the one that is causing all the problems. And remember that if you believe in God and follow the Bible or even the Koran, then it all started with just one man and one woman. Even science tells us that we all go back to one man/woman.
Suggestion: “If man (man/women) would use integrity as the model of how to live, would not this world be a better place?”
What a much needed post, Bill! If people would focus more on their inward, character building qualities (integrity) and less on their outward appearance we would live much more amicably!
Thanks for stopping by Crissy. Your comments are always encouraging and welcome. Thanks Bill
