Stepping in dogma

Faith is ego

True, deep, abiding
exclusionary faith
is your ego run amok

Blind faith is
egomaniacal, contrary
to belief , less about
submission, more
simple self-absorption
cum-righteousness

Believing is good.

Absolute certainty,
unfortunately,
is all about you

    “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” ~~St. Francis of Assisi

    I find that I quite agree with you, Poet. I hardly think that two or more in agreement are exclusive or any more profound than the ones who don’t agree.
    1) If the Big Guy made the rules, He also gave us the right to question.

    2) If we made the rules, we better get off our blessed assurances and get busy!
