If you call yourself a Christian, here are some of the things you believe:
- Reject, even hate your family. You are a follower of Christ. Jesus exemplified this. Do so likewise.
- Matthew 12 46-50
- Luke 14:26
- Meaning if someone doesn't worship the proper way, or turn others to the one true way, curse them so they don't even try anymore.
- Matthew 21:19
- Numbers 31:18
- Ephesians 1:5
- Romans 10:13
- John 6:53-56
- Matthew 19:21, Mark 10:21, Luke 12:33
- Matthew 24:40
I could go on and on and on. It's easy to cherry-pick Bible verses to argue any point. Christians do it continually (that's what they do in church).
For me, I want no part in any religion or supernatural belief system. I read science fiction, but I don't believe every story is physically possible. Time will tell, however.
When I die, do not place a cross over my grave. Do not supplicate the Lord God to accept my soul into His bosom. Do not say that I'm now in a better place. I'm just plain dead - I no longer exist. Period. I will only go on living in the memories of the handful of people that I interacted with on this earth. My music, art, photography, written words, the things I said and did - they may survive for awhile. But few people will ever enjoy them as much as I did while creating them.
Live your life NOW! Love your family and friends now while they are near to you. They won't always be and neither will you be around to do anything about it.
"Do the things you want to if you can. Don't wait for circumstances to be just right. You'll find they never are." ~Rudyard Kipling
