So, if we believe that Christ and God and the Spirit are one, then we need to pay attention to His words to us. We must look at His words as the extension of God the Fathers, personal words, to us. What was one of the most important things, Christ imparted upon us? That Charity and Love are one and the same and in my opinion, these words are probably the foundation for our well being. It starts at the root of all things. We may disagree with others, their habits, how they worship and so on but we must try to love them, we must try to look at them through Christ's eyes. How would he see them and what would He have me do? Would he want me to pick apart His words and use them to piously prove that I know the true Doctrine and all the answers? I do not think he would and I must embrace those that see and feel differently or have a different perception.
That is not easy, as we all tend to translate things as we see fit. The Catholics have their way, the Baptists, Lutheran, Methodist, Protestant, Muslim, all have their beliefs. Many would die for those believes and may even kill. Why must we spend so much time, being right?
We must be careful and mindful of man's teaching and go back to the source for our salvation. Simply put...Pray for what you do not understand. Pray for wisdom and tolerance. Pray for the truth. Do not allow yourself to be led by the nose, by any man. We are responsible for our own salvation and must always seek and embrace the truth.
If our perception of God is in question, we need only to go to the Son for our answers.
I must also pray for those who do not believe. I do understand, that they feel they are smarter, than the population and body of believers. I must pray for them and their salvation, rather than even questioning it. Directing my energy, to trying to figure them out, is futile, it is better spent in prayer, is it not?
