We Christian brothers and sisters need to shape up.
This article contains a very interesting debate between evolutionist and creationist beliefs and is meant as support and encouragement for Christians...
I don't know about you guys, but I'm really impressed with what Pope Francis has been doing. He's sifting dogma from reason, he's emphasized the importance of love and kindness over doctrinal technicalities, and he's trying to be give of good example of what Christian morality should be like. What are your thoughts on him?
He likes women. :)
Seriously, he's helped countless people, he certainly knows what compassion and misery really mean. He's been trying to change people's perspective, we should have a positive outlook on life, respect each other, and give a helping hand whenever we can.
To put in a nutshell, he talks about old-fashioned values that have somewhat vanished into thin air over the years, and that we should be compassionate. His campaign will be successful, for a while. People usually come together when there's a big disaster or a great festivity, then we all turn into selfish beings, who try to move on.
Good luck, Pope. Just because Italy worships him, it won't change this world one bit.
If someone truly believes in Christian core beliefs, he/she wouldn't need Pope's discourse to be selfless and helpful.
Let's face the music, Church loves money. I honestly believe this new Pope would love to spend all money to help poor people, but other holy people will never allow it. How can a good Pope change this marvelous world, while his 'minions' are greedy?
Priests all over the world await Pope's arrival. In my country they already prepare themselves for a great event. They clean, polish everything, build new monuments, collect money for this glorious occasion. Last time one Pope visited my country, some homeless people were removed from the streets, you know, they were told to go away, such things happened even when hungry people waited in front of the Church for some crappy money. Once an altar boy approached a homeless man and told him to go away, cos' he was dirty and repulsive.
Italy, other countries love talking about compassion, but do they put their teachings into effect/action, no.
I've seen people in Vatican, they tend to be happy when Pope shows up. They all seem to be filled with joy, inspired to perform good deeds, but when Pope disappears, their perspective changes and everything's normal again. I've seen them, I know what such people do. They wander around seeking holy spirit and enlightenment, almost as if they were in a different world, they sing and say prayers. When you look into their eyes, you don't see anything, total emptiness and a sense of utter obedience, completely ready to follow Pope's word. And then the charade ends and people are normal again.
Everything dies. In time, even stars burn out. This is why Jedi form no attachments: all things pass. To hold on to something or someone- beyond its time is to set your selfish desires against the Force. That is a path of misery; the Jedi do not walk it.
We dwell on the past, and we clearly feel attached to people that passed away, isn't this a bit selfish? I didn't study philosophy, but in this life we can go only forward and while we try to move on, we tend to look back and we get stuck in the sand. "I don't like sand." Youtube.com I know, it's the worst chat-up line ever, but women and men use stupid lines anyway. :D
