Reader comment on item: Christianity Dying in Its Birthplace

Submitted by Shazia Khanum (Canada), Sep 28, 2005 at 12:41

It's been an enlightening experience for me here as I have learned a few positive things from many of the postings on this website and through my virtual interactions with some of the posters. Every situation has both aspects: positive and negative. It is up to us to find the positive even in a situation that seems utterly negative.

There is not much more to say without becoming repetitive and engaging in futile polemics, which usually cater to the lower aspects of the self and create a wedge between hearts.

So I will end my activities on this website with an excerpt from a spiritually uplifting article on Fethullah Gulen's website:

"... true godliness, in an individual and in a nation, comes from inner transformation not from external force or imposition of law."

and will add that the light is already within us. We just need to find our own unique way to let it reflect and shine.

Thank you all,

Goodby!
