Exemplify


Kindred,

Do you know someone who has totally lost touch?

Lost touch with who they were meant to be (as determined by the Lord);

Lost touch with their conscience;

Lost touch with the Truth and the Lord’s playground;

Lost.

To them, belief and religion become for them an intellectual ideal, a practice of mind.  

Talk the talk, but never walk the walk.
  
Hide behind strict rhetoric, fool others and ultimately oneself.
 
Never look too closely at conscience and grasp desperately to the promise of heaven, but in wishful thinking, idealized perfection, and grandiose labels of right and wrong that lend more toward power trips and hatred,
than love and peace.  

Remove these labels and what are you left with? 

Again, when you die, you cannot take material wealth or power with you, nor can you take your skin or skin color, your race or gender, your political affiliation or even your religion or church. 

What are you left with? 

        ______________________________________________

If you are left with fear, sins or grandiosity, then you are probably in trouble. 

If you are left with love and peace, kindness and charity, then you probably are on a good path, religion or no religion. 


P.s.
Jesus would not have uplifted the Good Samaritan, if he did not exemplify what it means to be saved.  

  “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”        ...
