You know, I agree with the main gist of what he is saying. But one thing jumps out at me that I have a 'problem' with---why does he not say 'the
attitude of forgiveness given by Christ?' Or some such more applicable, less exclusive, non-divisionary statement?
Forgiveness is not the domain of 'christians' alone--calling one's self after Christ does not make one Christ-like or walking in those particular
footsteps. Many buddhists are far more Christ-like than many christians. Some people can forgive and some don't--unrelated to what they do
otherwise and what they believe.
Christ is not divided. The world isn't divided except for the divisions man makes. And to say that christians are the forgivers only adds to the
things that cause us to need to forgive. If there were no division, then there would be no war. And then no forgiveness needed for the things done
The very same envy regarding God that caused Cain to kill his brother is the same kind that we kill our brothers with, this very day.
Envy is the opposite of love.
