COUNTDOWN: Our collective penance today is the recognition that 1,071 more days are still left in this massive liar President’s term in office…
Today is Valentine’s Day for all you young-at-heart romantics out there. It is a day dedicated to the celebration of love. It is also Ash Wednesday, for those of you who are Christian, which means the start of Lent – a period of introspection and self-denial for believers – and also a celebration of God’s love for all of us.
I myself am a Christian, but not a conservative, fire-and-brimstone type. That is, I do NOT practice a form of Christianity that believes God is an angry, authoritarian figure whose aim is to cast us all into hell and whose teachings must be followed at all costs, without question or mercy. That viewpoint is far too “Old Testament” for me. Rather, I believe in the “New Testament” Christianity as proclaimed by Jesus Christ Himself, quoted by His disciple Matthew, especially in the book Matthew 25. Here we see God as a loving and merciful being, who is happy to forgive and forget our misdeeds, provided that we try to follow Him, heed His law, and ask His forgiveness. Matthew 25, especially Matthew 25: 26-41, gives us a fabulous roadmap for each of us to follow, advising us to be charitable and not self-centered, and to always look out for the welfare of our fellow human beings.
I look at it as a sort of Golden Rule personified, as I believe it provides for the best and most civilized existence we can achieve here on Earth. I hope each of you will read this book and/or reacquaint yourselves with it. I am confident you will find it to be revealing and also inspirational.
All the best to all of you! 🙂
