'Sometimes they contain their own truths.'
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
This is my #1 objection to the Christian bible. My belief system revolves around the one known, proven object of value in the universe. Planet earth,
Gaia, the source of all delicate and evolving life in the known universe. So I am an environmentalist, placing intrinsic value on nature, the process
of developing biodiversity, consciousness, and then intelligence.
If a book prevents people from becoming and environmentalist and loving their home, family, pets, and neighbors (as much as God and Heaven), we begin
to see why the Republican party is so destructive.
The question I ask people is:
Where do your loyalties lie, to this world... Or the next? Only one of them is agreed to exist.
