There are two kind of hearts in this world
One is soft like clay
it lends itself to be molded by the hand of God
One is hard like rock
it lends itself to be molded by the hand of the world
There are two kinds of faith in this world
Some put their faith in mental and physical strengths
That come from with in themselves
Some put their faith in the wisdom and power
That comes from God above
There are two kinds of foundations that lives are built upon
Some are built upon a foundation of faith love , hope
Some are built upon a foundation of selfishness, pride and greed
There will come many great storms throughout life
they will test the foundations we have built upon
Some will stand strong and unmovable
like a sea wall holding back the ocean
some will be weak and be swept away
Like a sand castle is washed away by the tide of the sea

I love it, your metaphors are fantastic. I see how, because a sea wall is made of stone, something solid, of the earth, "hard as rock" and "molded by the hand" of tangible man and relies on that tangible physicality and strength to hold back the amorphous sea, that it is real power and real security. I love how you juxtaposed that with the intangible and amorphous faith in the wisdom of a divine being and other soft, ambiguous stuff like clay, suggesting that religion is selfish, prideful and greedy. That's awesome, and it has played out so true throughout history with all the bloodbaths and stuff in the name of the various gods, not to mention all the people who aren't saved from horrible "storms" and the high waters of disease and privation despite their piety and endless prayers, which in the end are weak and wash away like sand. Really good job capturing all that. I love it!!!

Does anyone else feel that organized religion is built on a foundation of making you feel guilty?I feel that in order for an organized religion to run successfully it must be predicated on the fact that you must feel guilty on a number of levels.
