We're supposed to love our neighbors, but nobody ever said we have to like them.

Chaz, I've never been able to figure that out. A teacher told me that once. But I can't get my brain around loving someone but not liking them. It seems like eventually the two would merge. lynnie

Hypocrites all. You subdue & destroy And THEN say "Live & let Live".
If I hate anything, it's Christendom.
Eff yer Grace, bitches. Tell it to the Dead.I remain unrepentant.

Lol. Yes many religions contain lot's of hypocrites. And were started by hypocrites that wanted to control the stupid. Lots of people that go to churches are dishonest pieces of sh#t. Some people who work in churches are there only to gain access to children so they could molest them. Some priests ride in 1000000$ cars, and ask regular church goers for donations to the church. There are lot's of sick people out there who pretend to be Christians/Muslims/or whatever, who do not live by anything they CLAIM to believe. However, there are some individuals out there that got important lessons out of reading the Bible/Koran/etc, were able to transform their life, and do their best to be a decent human. My understanding of decent human does not involve hatred, murder, child molesting, or beliefs that my religion is superior to what other people believe. And I don't claim to be a saint neither haha. Just saying Christianity could help lot's of people, teach us to be better, but it depends on us, how we use it...teaching your children good lessons and spending time with them (like micronut) over Easter is not a bad thing. I do not see a reason to spray hate into this thread...

Hey Jimmy, nice post!

I'm a cynical observer about the great salvation that allows many to hold up their hands and exclaim how saved they are. Regardless of what it was...

Grace is something else though.

Graceful behavior has a power that accepts crudity and non criminal anti social behavior for the frustration it is.

Misspelling, poor expression of an idea or just plain anger at what one would like to understand, can be resolved and given merit with a simple, graceful reply.

This is not like having to agree unconditionally, it's more like having some respect for other walks of life.


I'm kinda a Jesus-dude, but it sounds like you have the same vibe.

God bless.

Lynne, this means we should 'respect' our neighbors and be nice and 'civil' to them. Doesn't mean they aren't as#@&%es.

Had a chat with an 88yr-old chick at 7-11 today, registered Democrat she later told me. She was spouting off at the clerk about culture decay. I decided to chat with her.

Cool lady. Just very concerned about the future. I tried to reassure her and wish her happy Easter.

She has me and John for the future. And many like us.

I guess I'm crazy, but I think if you practice loving someone, eventually (has taken quite some time with a few people) you end up liking them. It has much to do with the American Indian philosophy that if you walk in their moccasins you understand why they are and who they are. Happy Monday, lynnie

I just saw "The 10 Commandments" over the weekend. To me, it's kinda like "The Wizard of Oz", you never get tired of watching it again. My favorite line is "So shall it be written, so shall it be done"! Yule Brenner and Charleton Heston were both bad asses in that one!

Happy Monday to you, Lynne, and to Micronut, bluering, Ron, the Captain, and to everyone else. I was too busy celebrating Easter to visit ST yesterday, so I just now read your beautiful post on grace. About all I know about grace, other than its definition (unmerited favor) is that I've received way more grace than I've given, or will ever be able to give, and yet I still keep stumbling and need (and receive) more grace to cover it. In that I remain joyously grateful.

One of the best Easter Sundays ever. Coffee and a newspaper. Killer Eggs Benedict. Aimed the guitar amp towards the neighbor houses and gave them a show they did not necessarily want. Took orchids over to our 93 year old neighbor Ken. 2 hour power nap. 90 minute rod bike ride. Steak chimichangas and the latest episode of Shameless on Showtime. Thank you Lord for another blessing of a day!!

As Christians let's remember that going to church, [...] does not make us Christians.

Is there any possibility that you could convince my wife that this was true? It's affecting my climbing schedule...

I'm not gonna be a naysayer though...the Grace thing hits the mark with me.

Damn, those eggs look tasty!

Dave, I think the standard reply to that is "Going to church does not make one a Christian any more than staying in the garage makes one a car."

Really fun hanging at the Easter party in the Park with many old friends. Many great jams over two days with Rick and Annie Cashner, Matt Chapman,Sonagere and many more. Even McTwisted backed us up on the five gallon plastic bucket.
