Queerty is better as a member
I met Desmond Tutu when he came to my city, I can honestly say he’s the only man of faith I have ever met who I felt genuinely knows he is working for the common good.
A truly great man, I really hope that he will make a difference.
What an incredible shame it is that Christianity has so many manifestations of hatred, cynicism and contempt towards those that are disliked.
These manifestations occur because unknowing leaders in churches and other faith communities don’t experience that the spirit and the spirit alone is all that really matters.
Bruce Barton of “The Man Nobody Knows” fame said that.
And Paul, in one of his best comments, wrote, “The Kingdom of God is not in “word” (that means scripture verse), but “power” (that means the ever renewing and leading work of the Holy Spirit in us and other spirit led movements in the world)…….it’s not food and drink but “righteousness” (that means doing good works and deeds) and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”.
As time moves on, scripture verse like that will mean more and more.
Thanks to voices such as Mr. Tutu, that will happen sooner.
