Chuckling: “The failure to understand Genesis is literally “undermining the entire word of God,” Ken Ham, the founder of Answers in Genesis, says in a video. The collapse of Christianity believed to result from that failure is drawn out in a series of exhibits: school shootings, gay marriage, drugs, porn and pregnant teens.”
But what if it’s the other way round?
What if Christianity, as practiced, is a whopping failure?
That fails those in need because it has been the vehicle of men like Ken Ham, founder, who see profit and power, the toxic mix of money and ego, even in the body of the Christ.
Aw hell, Christ Himself would be bored to tears and not a little pissed with the video-taped crap of the Ken Hams of this world. Would throw their smarmy asses out of the temple—probably muttering to himself, Christ, again?—and hand the whole thing over to the women. Whom he admired, whom he was close to, and why not, would you give anything deep to men?
One feels sorry for people whose lives are run by their gonads, but you tell me, are they ever in their right mind? I think not.
Step back and for the moment ignore the fact that men have taken the role. Are they really fit ?
Or is it they who constitute the troubled, the baffled and bereft. Who bring eternal grief to the family, to the lives of women and children, to nations. Spiritually damned by that untruthful double life.
In the short time He was alive, Jesus invested in the women around him. Despite the fact they were as respected as sand fleas. Which no doubt aided the idea of his enemies that He was just some kind of nut.
But if you’re at all grown up, you know. The crazy are sane, the meek the strength of the earth, where Buddhists practice Christianity and a celibate Pope honks on and on about sex.
It would be nice to have a true church to turn to, but honey, as we know, Institutions are categorically fucked. I just got some ideas why.
