And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” Tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, “Teacher, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Collect no more than you are authorized to do.” Soldiers also asked him, “And we, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages.”
Be fair and be content
‘We have the use of the a sailboat and find joy in seeing how the wishes of men and winds have to work together. it is good to bow before the forces of nature as well as to conquer them. the spirit of our time lays such strong emphasis on the conquering, the activity; I find that we also learn from listening, waiting, helpless expectancy. ‘
actually quoted from Thomas R Kelly, A Testament of Devotion.
I have been going through my books and thinning the herd. At 51, I don’t envision having time to read 6 huge boxes worth of theology, bible studies, christian living.
I’m full up to here with theology, denominations against denominations, Calvin VS arminian. The power verses. Romans 8. Which sins are the greatest. Creation Vs evolution. Whose god is a better god.
I think I am just fed up with religion and mans attempt at wrangling it for his own use.
Tired of religion and politics intermingling.
Tired of being told I am a heretic if my view differs from someone else.
Tired of having to struggle with Christianity and biology.
I just want to love others, help others and do the right thing. Not for the fear of hell, but just because I should and I do. To have my existence make a difference in the world.
