Still learning


I continue to find it quite amazing that sects within faiths are often harder on each other than they are on other religions - myself included at times.  

The message of Jesus was so simple that it is difficult for "educated" people to comprehend.  I loved the biography of Joan of Arc: By Herself and Her Witnesses.  (Not the movie The Messenger - with little fact or truth.)  The story of an illiterate young woman so bent on her faith in god that not even 21 doctors of theology and the law could find one fault in her over several months of testimony.  They finally had to find one minor flaw in what she said in order to burn her at the stake at age 19.  It is that kind of simplicity, the simplicity that Jesus taught - without all the commentary and theologians hawking their books and DVDs, getting it all confused - that we need to get back to.

I believe we could all continue to learn to practice "therefore do unto others what you would have them do unto you, for that is the law and the prophets. (i.e. - the entire bible).

I'm still learning.
