It's always seemed really bizarre that the right-wing, ecumenical Christian folks speak the Scriptures but stand for everything Jesus was against. And nothing he preached. Go figure. Christianity gone wrong. I don't want to say "phony Christian" but yeah, that's how I see them. Christ would roll . . .
I think this is very true. It's certainly been true in my life. Consider the times when you've been asked...or even REQUIRED...to let go of something important. Maybe it's a job you loved and lost. Or a relationship in which you loved and lost. A family home. Maybe it's letting go of controlling . . .
Maybe, like me, you have had experiences that make you wonder where conscience has gone. Because it seems to have disappeared in this current world of ours. Two really good doctors we see brought this to mind recently. Our GI doctor tells us his findings after a colonoscopy, right then and there. . . .
