Ive been quoted as saying one of the greatest of injustces is the doors of church. The refugees left on the inside of those doors and all the unspoken pain and hurt they feel. Outside standing those who have been hurt by those inside, those who don’t “fit”, those who just havent reached the standard yet. The doors are closing many in, and shutting many more out.
It is the questions that cloud the mind on both sides of this door, inside questions of faith, history and self are deemed heresy and hipocracy.
Questions outside of life choices, human rights, freedom and examples are declared rebellion and dangerous.
A questions is such an unassuming place to begin, we like to think in our society that there is a definte and absolute answer to every questions asked.
The idea of Spirituality in our modern contemporary world is to see what this means to me, at this moment, in this point in my life. It all starts with you and how this word, these gods, these faiths relate to where you are.
Imagine a group of fiver runners, would it be easier for them all to jump on one guys back; that way they can make sure they all run the same path, the same way, and if they stumble they all stumble together. Yes its community orrianted, but so many flaws lay in this type of thinking.
How much more unvarying would it be to each run next to the other, saying, “hey watch out for that hole coming up on the right. If we fall, one can stop and pick that other one up. We don’t run weary because we only have to figure out the best way for us. The other runners are capible of deciding the best trail for them to take, Because I don’t know where that person is.
The bible speaks of this as working out your own salvation (Phil-2-12) the hebrew word for salvation is bedded in a holistic meaning, it is a contiuious living expericance, not a one time thing. It is a process not a one time event, or destination. Maybe it’s time to rethink christianity.
