I do not personally identify as Christian, or with any religion for that matter, but when I see the Truth I acknowledge it whether it comes from a Christian, Buddhist, Mormon, Atheist, Muslim, Hindu, whatever. In a way I think all people can be "Christian", or "like Christ", in a way regardless of what religion they do or do not belong to simply by following his compassionate example. The vein of truth is evident in nearly all religions and is accessible to all regardless of whether or not they ever encounter religion in their lives; it just has to be sought after by a mind that has accepted that we are more than our ego.
I absolutely agree that the conflict could very well be a device to keep us from this greater truth. What better way to keep people from acknowledging each other as a part of the divine than distracting them with petty squabbling instead of realizing and embracing their connectedness?
It was actually Dr. Paul that got me on the track to getting back in touch with my spirituality. For many years I felt spiritually dead and bitter, like I had to constantly be on the defensive for my personal beliefs. Then I heard his message of liberty and my entire world changed. I had a whole new understanding of life and I felt spiritually alive again. Amazing what the message of liberty can do, eh? :)
I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
