A Writer's Journey of a Secluded Mind

bible

Having read John 9:1-5; let us think. Is something really a “choice”, a “sin”, a “punishment” ? Or is it mearly  a way for us to see God’s works. Yes we have free will. But persecuting others because of their religion, sex, race, sexual preference, perseverance (the US’s one percent), their social standing, their IQ, EQ. All that we point and say “Attack! I am afraid because they are different!” And we do. 

No question, we hide behind our religious beliefs, misquoting, misguiding. Twisting words because for sure that translation was a mistake and it couldn’t mean me. 

We are told throughout the New Testament to LOVE. Love as God loves us. Love as a child, as a Father, as a brother…

Love thy neighbor as thyself. 

And if this is how the Religious love. I see why so many struggle with the Bible. I say Religious and not Christians. For to be a Christian is to be Christlike; and I in my sinful, judgmental mind. I say that for I suffer that human weakness, striving not to and therefore in my own paradox. I have not seen what I would deem a “true” Christlike person. Though I have met some who are close, until they spout hurtful religious hate and bigotry because they don’t understand how someone could “choose” to be that way. 

How then do we rectify this? Not us.

I realize that this blog has gone on a spiritual bent. For some reason left field is  calling. Do not fear, but please be patient for I am building something. Either love in my mind. Strength for what is to come. Mana for thought. I have not forgotten my stories. But some are hitting too close to home and require some inner-work so that my characters can grow and become three dimensional and not one.  I thank you for sticking with methrough  this.

The blog is not changing. Frank’s story will still be written. Still one of my favorite genres. I have not forgotten. The navigation will be cleaned up. The archive created. I will be adding more biblical based thoughts. But that is just it, they are thoughts. I fully intend in time to pull the more contreversal ones out and attempt to disect them from their origination. Because some of them just piss me off. I do not trust the translation. And yes it is time. Time, before I post too many more posts and archiving under correct labels is made difficult. Hmm… I may have to make a directory. No, nothing is being deleted. Merely relabled. If I were to delete some of my work then my title would no longer stand

I find that I often do not have good names for my heros and villians. Reading the Bible this morning I realized something…  there’s some good names in there!

Just thought I’d share 😉
