For starters, I am not sure if I fully believe in a god, but I think it is always best to live as if there was one. Not to ensure heaven, screw heaven, but rather to ensure that you are living with human decency in mind, instead of only focusing on what is best for you personally.
To me, god, Jesus, the intent of Christianity, it's a metaphor, a well written story presenting guidelines of how life could be. It's just odd to me how those who believe in its actuality are the same ones who so often live in opposition of it.
Jesus, fictional or real, said to love thy neighbor, he said to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, protect the helpless. And here, in a nation with God on its money, in its anthem, in its courts, we are planning on building a wall to keep out everyone we were told to welcome.
Have we forgotten that God is the God of all people? Not just Americans. He is the god of refugees, he is the god of immigrants (illegal or not), he is the god of every religious (Christian, Jewish, Mormon, Buddhist, etc.) or nonreligious person in existence.
To me the message of God was pretty clear. It was plainly written: Love.
"But they'll take our jobs. They'll take our money. They'll take our food." When did we forget that none of these things are actually ours to keep? They are God's.
But hey, remember what God said, right? "Build walls. For America is yours, and no one else's."
Don't just worship God in privacy or on social media, worship God in your actions.
