#Poem of the Day: #315 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee ~ Church ~ A Blast from the Past

August 2019

I suspect in today’s United States that person will get her will… 😦

April 2015

Two weeks ago I read about a governor somewhere in the United States who wants to make going to church on a Sunday mandatory.

I thought that to be a little medieval besides the problem that surely there are lots of citizens of the States who are of a different religion. So what is she to do with those? Burn them? Force them into being Christian?

I told one of my colleagues, and she agreed with that governor. In her opinion, it would be good that people today get some more discipline. While I have to agree with her on that point, I doubt going to church would do the trick.

In my experience it all depends on the priest/pastor of the church: If that person is genuine and lives what he preaches than he or she can be very beneficial, and his/her sermons can be food for thought.

Often though this is not the case. Now, of course, the usual reply to that by Christians is: ” We are all sinners, and we are forgiven”. Well, nicely said but too often followers of the Christ do have a lot of problems with the forgiving for people who do not follow the Christian Church.

It all somehow does not add up when you look closely. In the end, I doubt that anything that is made mandatory will help to solve humankind’s problems. I believe the only way to change anything is to be the change yourself. To put your money where your mouth is. If you are genuine and if you are an example for a humble and a caring life others will follow your example without you having to make rules.

A little more understanding for each other and fewer rules might just do the trick.

On second thought though: If Church is mandatory I wouldn’t have to work on Sundays….. 🙂

 

 

Church

no matter what

take you to church

    • I think its more a power thing than solving anything. Some people seem to love it when they can make people do things they dont want to do. Religion is a good vehicle to do that. 🙋‍♀️🐝
