WHY I HATE RELIGION BUT LOVE JESUS
The second one:
WHY I LOVE RELIGION AND LOVE JESUS
I listened to both poetic expressions and I am wondering...
Are we the OPPOSITION or are we on the same TEAM.
There are so many different expressions of faith in this world and in the body of Christ. Some would look in from the outside and see it as competition within the ranks. I don't know. I have been to a few team events in my life. Following are a couple of analogies to explain where I am going with this one.
|Rogers Center, Toronto, Ontario|
I used to like baseball. I would watch it over the season and I had my favourite team to cheer for: the Toronto Bluejays. I have been to Toronto and seen them in action four times against the New York Yankees. My second favourite team was The New York Yankees. So I sit up in the stands and I have to cheer for someone... right? I cheered for Toronto, because they were number one. But if I was at home watching New York playing someone else, I would cheer for them. When those two teams were together in the field. I noticed how nasty the fans got. There was no singing "Take me out to the ball game". They were loud in their rebukes for the opposite team. I came away from that game wondering if it is okay to like both sides.
