Some people find it difficult to accept that each one of them is, indeed, a different thing from the others. It leads to a lot of confusion and unnecessary assumptions. In my humble opinion.
I suspect we share similar opinions on the reality of religion in the world today.
A lot of people think that, till they get to know me.
I kinda agree with everyone .. but then ??? there's always something that I'm always a little off track with.
I think it is the Vatican's work that has clouded people's understanding of Scripture. Indeed, I think the former bigwigs at the Vatican are guilty of the very last thing it says NOT to do in the Bible.
Indeed, I think Revelation has quite a bit to say about the Vatican and Papacy.
I sometimes wonder "if" the whole truth could be understood and delivered to the masses; would it be considered to be a good thing? Or are things better left alone? Maybe things are the way that they are suposed to be??
While we are on this subject... What helps me feel better .. sometimes when I am feeling a bit sorry for my self all I gotta do is to think of about a dozen other places that I'd rather not be than more than the place that I am; and I'm going things that I'd rather not be doing more than the thing that I am doin. That usually puts the smile back on my face.
Yea it can... suposed to think posative. It Could be a lot better too. Why isn't it better ? OH yea I did some stuff that slowed me down a lot in gettin to where I just recently figured out that I wanted to be. I bet that's it.
