in response to reader comment: The cycle continues...

Isn't it interesting that hate begets hate? It's a cycle indeed. Thank you, Sarah for your wise words. When we use our religions to hate, hurt and kill do we even know the Creator at all? I don't believe we do. We are creating the Creator in our own image rather than being conformed to His image. The only power greater than hate is love. We need to remember to feel each other's pain. We need to treat each other the way we want to be treated. I believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life because He sets His people free to love the unlovely. He sets people free from their superstitions which lead them into a blood bath. Jesus loved across the lines of race, gender and age. Life is is precious. Human beings are treasures. Persecution exists everywhere. When human beings destroy human beings whether it's war, crime, terrorism or even abortion we are looking at the face of evil. I have lived in Africa, Europe and America. The cultures are different. But people are people and God is God. Evil is evil and love is love; they look the same in every land.
