SO MANY GODS

December 23, 2010

In my local paper, I was dismayed to read an advice columnists letter from a woman who attended one church for the 30 years of their marriage and her husband attended another. Her husband died but her pastor refused to ask the congregation to pray for him because their churches were  fundamentally different.
Oh, woe is humanity in the hands of men.

Its Christmas Time. A time of peace and good will toward others. We are at war. Its a religious war with people killing themselves and other people in the name of God.  Banish religion and keep God.
I’m reminded of Ela Wheeler Wilcox’s simple words.

So many gods, so many creeds

so many paths that wind and wind.
While just the art of being kind
is all this sad world needs.
(Ela Wheeler Wilcox)

    AMEN!! Yes – Banish religion & keep God. He hates religion — which is man’s futile efforts to please God.
