Something that I’ve been mulling over for some time is the question of people, or groups of people, who claim to be what they are not. I’ll give credit where it’s due: the Reform and Conservative movements in Judaism admit that they have modified the original path set by Moses; although I’m sure they consider the intent to be the same. But what of the people who claim to be Christians, yet so obviously do not follow Jesus’ teachings? I do not recall Jesus teaching hate.
And then, it’s not like that’s strictly a Christian problem. I’ve seen it among Buddhists, Hindus, and even Pagans and Wiccans: claiming to be one thing, yet seemingly on a different path.
Until all of the Ancient Ones come and sit down with us and tell us where it’s really at, our project is to figure this out!
