Is the religion of Christianity really any different than the other world religions that Christianity is so quick to condemn as dead and destructive because they don't contain truth? I actually wonder if Christianity is even more problematic to people because it does contain more of the Truth than the others and yet often ends up being a wall that keeps many from the reality of the transformed life? It just seems to me that religion is religion and a religion that contains a lot of language about the Truth (or should I say the story of the One who is true) and yet is still an adventure in missing the point like religion has always been, might just be causing much confusion as to what the incarnation, the cross, resurrection and ascension was all about?
And it's possible that these thoughts might just be due to the fact that I have been suffering with extreme pain in my lower back now for 36 hours and on top of that, while at work today, heard countless stories of abusive controlling manipulative behavior coming from people who claim to be "defending" God's truth. Maybe?.......but I tend to lean to something more on the lines of this...."Houston, there seems to be a problem."
