"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." ~1 John 4:12

Jesus = God

I put this in the "About me" section of Facebook about a week ago after the InterVarsity video, but I'm taking it down because it does not do service to who Jesus is. I'm gonna go back to not trying to validate my actions to other people, it's better that way. God is the only one who needs to know the things I do and that I do it all for him. It should be sufficient that I finally decided to add my Religious Views as "Christian." And if that strikes anyone because I have been "Catholic" all my life and I still go to the Oratory and yet find the need to write Christian instead of Catholic, so be it. We are all one in Christ. And the Christians did something to me this weekend that I cannot explain and have never witnessed before, not even on the over-a-dozen other (Catholic) retreats I've been on. It could be that I just wasn't listening all those other times, but either way there is NO way all those people are just delusional. Jesus is God.

Jesus came to earth to teach us how to live. How to live an abundant, fulfilling life of humility, love, and service to others. Our time here on earth is a gift, and I try to make the most of every moment of it. I believe there are undoubtedly other ways of learning to live morally than by listening to the word of Jesus, but it is still all the word of Jesus. There are plenty of non-Christians who display this behavior and are in tune with the song of life of the living God who is alive in all of us. I just try to be in tune.
