” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed”
” I have set before you life and death****therefore choose life”
Thought of the day:
As the first church was created, the world was upside down. the imprisonments, deaths and ugliness were overwhelming, Jesus Christ hoped to change our world? but how can we really change when, we are deeply afraid to take a stand or even, to stand out?
There are many bridges and cross roads throughout this journey of life, the thing is, the bridges break down over time, the cross roads with so much traffic, become riddled with ruts and grooves, that can get us all twisted and bruised. We all want everything handed to us today, nobody wants to work for anything anymore, which makes for the bridges not being attended to, or the cross roads not being groomed as well. Back about 2,000 years ago as the Catholic Church was created, that society back then was just as bad as this society today, the big difference is, the technology we have today. Now with technology, it was suppose to make life easier for us all? but in a lot of ways it has complicated life in so many ways, and in ways we truly do not understand.
We the people are what’s wrong in this society and we the people can fix it moving forward. In a lot of ways we all think we are better and smarter than each other, which leads to much head butting, and we as a society not coming together in unity. For instance, when something gets invented you go through a series of experiments, you go through multiple think tanks with many others, you just can’t invent something thinking this is the change all, without getting out all the bugs and issues. Nothing is perfect, not even we the people, as much as some may think they are?
When Jesus came to us and walked this journey through life with us, he taught us many things, he showed us of how not to just be a fishermen, but to be a Fisher of Men. he showed us how to treat each other with respect, so we than can show our love and empathy to each other. He protected us from the evil, while showing us how to resist temptation, as he himself resisted the temptation from Satan. We in this society and because many of us have forgotten what the inside of the house of God looks like, and in many ways given into the temptation of evil and Satan, we have buried our true feelings of love and empathy, as to try to protect ourselves from all evils, which does nothing except, makes our hearts go cold, and stops the heart from letting the blood of Jesus Christ flow freely throughout our bodies. We of this society today, think very strongly that, we know more than all others, which because of this mindset, has lead all into the path and destruction that Satan wants, as we all have gone in the other direction of what Jesus wants for us all.
Change is good, change can be difficult and bring much pain, but if we do not adapt to the change, then we as a society will never see the light at the end, as we all stay within the darkness of Satan and all it’s ugliness it brings. Satan wants us all to be hateful of each other, as this is what divides us moving forward, hate is a learned thing and we have learned it from somewhere? We need to find where we learned it, so we can unlearn it and get back to true love. Everything around us will change constantly, even we ourselves will go through many changes as we walk our paths, we will go through many changes throughout this journey, but if we never adapt to the change, then we will never fully walk any path we choose, along this journey of life.
The Catholic Church was created to give us a place to worship, a place to go listen to the words of God, so we can implement them within our lives? But as time passes and we change and in some ways for the worse, then everything around us becomes diluted with we not being true to ourselves or even true to Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church is a place we go to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so when there is faith, there will always be hope moving forward. When we keep the faith in Jesus and ourselves, no matter what this journey may throw at us, we will always walk our paths with confidence, as we never lose site of the light from the path of righteousness, which keeps those dark days to a minimum, like the night giving way to the daytime.
The Catholic church is no different than anything else along this journey, it has gone through many changes from when it was created, which is what makes it successible like we ourselves, to the changes of life. The church in a lot of ways has given into the temptations of Satan, with all the power, control and greed, which has had it lose sight of the true words of Jesus Christ and then interpreting them to you and I as they see fit. Yes they have had some scandels in the past, and some of these scandels has led us away from the church, maybe if these scandels were handled better and in a way like Jesus handled the temptations from Satan, then our faith would be alot better, leaving us with better hope moving forward.
Sometimes through change things become frazzled and out of focus, when this happens, sometimes it is best to go back to basics, to move forward even stronger. Some in this society want to take away all the history, to give you nothing to glance back at, so you can fix what you need to fix, they want you to become so dependent on them, that you then do not walk a path through this journey for yourself anymore, and now you have become the sheep within the herd, for the small majority of shepards in this world. When we all come together in unity, when we all get back to truly being of who we are, when we all get back to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, this is how we get back to truly feeling the love and empathy within us, as the hate and the ugliness find they can not affect us anymore, when we then as Jesus did many times, resist the temptations of evil, so we all then can see the true hope in front of us, as we walk our paths in peace, and find much joy throughout this journey of life.
” The Philosophy of life is really very simple, just that we the people have twisted in so many ways that we have become out of focus from it”
” The bridge over troubles waters have become frazzled and in need of a fixing to keep all moving forward without falling to the peril below”
