LGBT Not Let That Stop Us We Live In A World With More Hate Than Love But Will Not Shirt, hoodie, tank top
Lydia, Thank you so much for writing your wise words. Ever since Bush and Co. Came into power, I have been as perplexed as you are about my faith. George has made it very confusing to be a Christian…For what Christian would want to be associated with him and all of the death and destruction that he has brought about in the last 5 years. When I’m around my intellectual friends, I find myself apologizing for my beliefs, and when I’m around my Christian friends, I have to defend being a democrat and the very negative feelings that I have for Bush…Dare I say Hate? It’s pretty hard to separate hate for the actions of this man and his cohorts from hate for the people that have done so much to destroy this country and this planet. I can’t help but think that they are bringing about the end times by their very actions…And maybe this is their intention. Thanks again, and please keep writing on Brad Blog. Can’t wait to read your book.

It certainly sounds paradoxical that Jesus said He came to bring not peace but a sword, yet He also asked us to turn the other cheek when attacked.
For me, it’s another reason not to take the Bible literally. But may we not assume that Christianity would not have survived as long as it has, through all the wars fought in its name and all the non-Christian thoughts and deeds that occur daily, unless Jesus was above all else the ultimate hope of mankind? We just haven’t accepted His message of peace yet, and I seriously doubt that a literal interpretation of the Bible will be of much help; those that do interpret it literally seem the most unwilling or unable to follow Christ’s teachings.

There is another aspect of the message of Christ that may reveal why the jihad war mentality of fundamentalists who profess christianity seem so at odds with the message.
They have chosen not to get the message in the first place:
