Just A Thought About Society & Religion . . .

Yesterday's events were awful. And while we cannot tar everyone of one religion with the same brush, it should raise a flag of caution through out the UK.

But i think society has shifted so much in regards to religion that it no longer distinguishing between the religions. When the events of yesterday unfolded my FB & Twitter timeline saw comments giving out about religious fanaticism and i saw people vent against religion in general. There is an upsurging opinion among society that religion (all of it) is to blame for atrocities, and that caution and/or avoidance should be made towards all who hold religious beliefs; because surely they must be nutt jobs believing fairy tales?

So when a terrible act is committed from one religion, people frown not only on it, but on christianity as well. People Forget, or perhaps have not experienced the words of Christ that His followers love their enemies and do good to those who spitefullest use us. Perhaps the only way to turn opinion is to show that Christianity is no mere religion and that love, genuine and true flows from Christ through us to them . . .
