Religion – 2seconds 30minutes later…..

It’s always better to have an open mind and be less judgemental about things we do not understand.

So yes, again I say it – I am a staunch catholic, but i ain’t stupid either.  Some things really do not make no sense.  What do we know about our existence?  Why do we worry so much about keepin gup appearances and impressing our peers and having everyone commend us ofr “doing the right thing” – “being religious”.
What’s most important is to live right as a person.  Repect should come first, because every religion places importance on some form of respect..so therefore we cannot go wrong.  If we respect the next person, there is no treating them bad, no judging them, no murder, theft, deceit, slander…u know the whole deal.  Respect and honour – I personally think a respecting person is better than the liar who go to “church” every single Sunday/Saturday or whatever day it is.
I was having a conversation with a colleague earlier and they mentioned something that interested me “Why are Christians so quick to send someone to hell”..reminded me of something Eddie Griffin said as well.  How do you know that this person is going to hell for whatever, for not “going to church”, for believing in Muhammad.  I say focus moe on your relationship with God, and not be so quick to judge others seeing as it ain’t none of your business, and you have no idea what their relationship with God.
I couldn’t care less what the rest of the world thinks of me.  Long as i know that at the end of the day, my relationship woth God is as strong as it can be.  Because irregardless of what – it boild down to that right – the reason i pray is not so my peers can commend my acts, but so that my relationship with my maker is stronger, my faith is stronger, andi can live life as a complete human being – respectfully and honourably.
See what you do every other day reveals the kind of person you are.  Your actions, thoughts, dress code, presentation – your body is a temple – treat it and present it accordingly – instead of worrying whether the rest of the world seen that i been in church and have said a prayer once a week.
Personally i respect more Muslims than Christians – i highly recommend reading on confucianism for a lot of my fellow Christians.  Hell, even the mafia had better code than most of my fellow christians.  I aint trying to play holy or nothing – i’m a sinner like veryone else.  Just saying what i think.
I have been ridiculed and attaked for supposedly “worshipping Mary”, worshipping “The Pope”, “not reading the Bible” – all by people who do not get it.  They see things from the outside and have no basic understanding of what lies beneath.  If i was to google somwthing – what would probably come up first is wikipedia, or some huffington post blog, or some perez hilton view – that don’t mean that is right or that is all there there is to know.  what about the link on page 15 of the search…check that one out.  Maybe we can learn something or else we’d rather shut the fuck up about shit we do not understand.  I do not know much about Bhuddism, so i do not say much – i say what i know about Islam (which aint much either), Confucianism, Taoism, Rasatfari movement  – as i read and learn.  That does not change me from my Catholic beliefs (which i will defend to the death) – it opens my eyes and helps me understand my God and His ways and tools of making us live better lives.   I can boldly say a lifestyle based on Taoism is at the moment better than what we most Christians are living – especially excuses we come up with for starting new churches so as to explain and defend our everyday living.  it’s sad but true – Christianity is not as it was – it is no longer what it was meant to be.  The Bible has been edited so many times a Harry Poter novel is easier to understand.
To quote Talib Kweli
“Every Sunday dressing up catching gossip at its worst
Couldn’t see the difference in the Baptist and the Catholic Church
Caught up in the rapture of the first chapter and second verse
If we all God’s children then what’s the word of the reverend worth
Taught early that faith is blind like justice when you facing time
If we all made in God’s image then that means his face is mine
Wait or it’s that blasphemy it’s logical it has to be
If I don’t look like my father then the way I live is bastardly
Naturally that’s confusion to a young’n trying to follow Christ
Taught that if you don’t know Jesus then you lead a hollow life
Never question the fact that Jesus was Jewish not a Christian
Or that Christianity was law according to politicians
Who was King James?
And why did he think it was so vital to remove chapters and make his own version of the Bible
They say Hell is underground and Heaven is in the sky
And they say that’s where you go when you die but how they know”
They say the Quran teach killing of the infidels.  My understanding and that of a few preachers and leaders i’ve read on is that the message is to fight those that attack you until you have driven them away so they are not in a positioin to attack you a anymore – shit that many murderes get away with according to the new worls constitution – self defence.  So the word is misquoted, to justify attacking a group who clearly hve a better and more religious lifestyle than ours – who show a better appreciation fo their culture and religion than us.
I am not a nice person.  I am not a righteous person.  But in all I do – in all the nastiness and unrighteousness of my deeds – my goal is to bring an ounce of righteousness to this world.
If by the time i die i have managed to make at least one person understand respect and honour as more important than “mass opinion” – i’m content.

I’m a staunch catholic – take all criticism as it comes and will still say the rosary often without any doubts.  That said though – it dont mean my eyes are closed to all the other religions of this world.  How can I – what if i’d been born in a muslim community and had been raised that way, what if i’d been raised differently – what gives me the right to dispute what someone else believes in – seeing esp they probably have as much faith in that as I have in mine.  And esp when some things dont add up but are just down to faith and open to discussioin.

For example – to quote Eddie Griffin – how did the deer from Brazil make it to the Noah’s Ark – went for a swim (or maybe that Atlantis thing aint just a myth…ummmm..food for thought huh)..or that only two people were created and multiplied (incest here huh?)

nah

I personally think the Bible is one big metaphor – esp the old testament – which is open to interpretation.  If God’s Son came and was teaching us in parables, why can’t Genesis be another parable too, or Job, Exodus – not to be taken literally but for the deeper meaning. So meaning we don’t really know what it is- think – as much faith as a Christian has in Jesus, so does a Muslim in Mohammed – so what makes one know that They are right? Faith right. So lets stop with the criticism,,,,..

And them ones who busy going to “church” every Sunday so as to criticise those who do not go to put the signature on the register – come on now.  If we paid more attention to our own life and less to those of others, then maybe this world wouldnt be such a bad place to be.  Like so what if you go to “church” on Sunday and Monday you busy plotting and scheming, living against the word and yet are quick to point out how X, Y, Z are not part of what seems to be the new fashionable thing – do wtf you want Monday to Saturday – long as you go to “church” in Sunday.  For crying out loud – though we all had the Bible and Jesus’ teachings on hypocricy. So what if they do not go to some building, get all dressed up to show off their new clothes, and try and clean their name to their peers – do you know the kind of conversations between them and their God? Do you know how often they down on their knees praying – how often they read the Bible?  And what makes you think they care for your criticism, when in some instances its clear that attending the Sunday meetings is just a facade.  How about for starters making this world a better place – build and not destroy.  THINK! God is watching.

and on that note – how about looking up the definition of church.

It all boils down to one thing – imao – There is one God – and how we get to him dosen’t matter.  Why would he make 6 roads of getting to him and only accept one – long as you get there right.  And to those who wanna be all about the devil and blah blah – the devil’s road does not teach the form of lifestyles presented by most religions – the road to Satan cannot teach humbleness, love, honour, respect and all things nice 🙂 – the road to hell cannot lead you to God.

Oh – I’m going to burn in hell? How the flip do you know??

Juss me and my mad thoughts..
