American Corinthians:



Don't confuse Patriotism with your Christianity...
The two don't mix, although the Baptists often forget
"Render unto Caeser what is Caeser's..." did not mean,
Support your country and fight for your flag.

John the Baptist was no soldier, fled the City and became
Jesus' mentor, made meals of locusts and honey
without touching market bread.

Jesus never raised an army, never picked up a weapon,
while Allah said Peace Be Upon You, and
yet we argue their differences and start wars instead

of living the better example we were given as template.
Think before it's too late... as the dead bury their dead
aren't they un-Christlike in these practices?

Your flag is not your Bible. Your God is not your President.
You're becoming instead the Philistines, laughing at small boys
poised to throw their rocks, taunting them "David is Dead!"

Is it any wonder your windows keep getting broken?

  I like this darling. I was just commenting to a friend on Facebook that I feel saddened that people claim Jesus as they are rejoicing in death and suffering. The Jesus that I know and love would never have allowed his followers to act that way while he walked here with them. I love that you point out the common vein of peace in the message of John the Baptist and the muslim faith. I find it interesting that people choose to ignore that all of the 3 major religions worship the same central deity. Whether we call Him YWH, Allah, or God, should we be unkind to one another? God never asked us to be unkind to a neighbor or enemy. He taught us to Love one another and turn the other cheek when wronged. It's sad that people mix patriotism with faith for justification of their feelings. Kudos to you for putting your opinion put there and not resorting to following the other lemmings! Thanks for posting, i did enjoy it.

  Which Jesus are we worshiping, the suffering humble servant who died for our sins 2000 years ago or the warrior high priest yet to come who will lead a vast army of avenging angels across the whole of Earth? Ironically all worshipers of the God of Abraham inclusive of the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims profess to believe in this conquering Messiah who will lead us into a new era. Yes, there will be a lot of explaining to do and shuffling of feet when that happens.

  it is sad that we start wars over religion...and that we kill in the name of Allah or Jesus...but we do...

and violence only begets more violence...

and the demonstrations in the street after Bin Laden has been killed border on tragic...a display like after a team has won the NBA title or a Football team the Super Bowl...
it is sad....

there might be a quiet celebration...but to show what many are showing is to promote more violence...

i see that in this piece...well done..

only problem "aren't they are un-like" that "are" is awkward there..

but i like the analogies very much in this..and the john the baptist stuff...no market bread.
