The Christian Thing…

As an atheist, I don’t believe in any sort of super-natural entities, ghosts, or santa, but I do have faith in humanity. I would say it’s wavering constantly when I watch world news, but every once in a while it’s restored by a genuine act.

ah, where was I…. sorry.

 

Yea, so like an atheist, I’m actually reading parts of the bible and Luke 6:27-31 really stuck out.

27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

THAT’S AWESOME.. why can’t Christianity, and other Abrahamic religions,  just focus more on this!? Now I’m not saying do this to a T, even I highly doubt I would be able to. But seriously, the world would be a much better place. But NOOOOOOO, the rest of the bible just HAD to tell you who to enslave, how much to sell your children for, who to  hate, ect. I find that I follow the teachings of Jesus more than a lot of christians… really….. the atheist! I believe we all deserve equal rights and every should be free to express themselves and love who they want without the harming and oppression of others. I don’t need a god telling me what’s right and what’s wrong. In fact, I feel bad for anyone that can’t figure out that murdering your infant child is wrong without an authority telling them. We have a special cell and medication for people like that.

I don’t hate anyone for something they can’t help. Besides it being a total WASTE of energy, there’s absolutely NOTHING that can justify it.
