The Pivot Point



Priests should not use the pulpit to spread messages of hate and discrimination; especially, justifying hatred with scriptural texts written before the times of Jesus Christ, making no distinctions between the Old Testament, the Gospels and the New Testament, from an eye for an eye practices to loving thy neighbor as self commandments. 

The constant vacillation between old and new, the conflation of distinct teachings of Christ with Pharisees laws, the lack of discernment, constantly block or distort Jesus Christ's teachings of love, peace, kindness and empathy.  

This constant casting of stones and judgement of others, also without first cleaning up oneself from sin and hateful ways, is unchristian and unholy.  

Pompous self righteous hypocrisy must stop.  

Manipulation of scripture, in self importance, selfish desires, personal gain of power or absolution of sins in judgement and blame, is sacrilegious.  

Priests misleading their flocks away from or off the narrow path of salvation (into the mundane) will be held accountable on Judgement Day.  

Spiritual enlightenment is an evolutionary process and should be treated as a process.  

The pivot point is from that of Jesus Christ and any regressions are points of ignorance and distortions of the Truth.  

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