You there. You seem angry. Not you snowflake liberal. You, that angry christian conservative. Everything is so dire and everyone is out to get you. You are mad at everyone. Why?
I suspect it may come from religion. That belief that we are sinners. Okay. That’s true, why is that the baseline for how God and ourselves look at human. It is simple so pessimistic.
It does not have to be that way. Many churches and religious leaders and community members have a powerful, positive message. One that I beleive in. Each day is a gift so make the most of it and enjoy it. These churches focus on God’s love and people leave them feeling good.
The text is the same, but they get a different message than you. Not God, but you focuses on how much evil is in everyone and how human’s default mode is bad. It is not necessary. It does not pay to measure how much we sin. Why not just focus on being better?
I suspect that it that you are invested in your anger and your righteousness.
That’s a good angry ending. I was going to stop. But then it occurred to me that is not the whole answer for everyone. You are also worried that bad things happen and more and more worse things happen and you want it to stop. You are afraid that we as a people will start allowing anything to happen.
Valid fear.We should have standards and encourage people to do better. But as jesus taught us. First love.
