I came to this silly conclusion: The teachings of Christ are one thing, the Christian Church is something else. I do my best to LIVE the way Christ recommended. I do my best to avoid churches. "By their fruits ye shall know them" and the churches have torn apart my family at the personal level, and been the impetus behind millennia of war at the macro level. I do not think Christ would be pleased with the Christian churches, and I refuse to describe myself as a "Christian." If I had a nickel for every time I was told by a Christian that I was going to hell for not being a Christian, I'd have enough tilapia to feed everyone on food stamps. (If any of you Christians want to donate a nickel with your insults, I'll use them to feed the poor! lol!)
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
