Apostate’s Creed

June 28, 2017

The Apostate’s Creed
I often believe in god, the life-force friendly

observer of heaven and earth.
I believe in a Jesus Christ, our good example

who might have been conceived by the Holy Spirit, if you go for that sort of thing,

born of the Virgin Mary,

victimized by the government,

was crucified, died, and buried;

he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again, maybe just spiritually in the hearts of his followers, we’re not sure;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and he will come, but not to judge anybody, because judging is bad.
I believe in sending good thoughts,

the holy catholic pluralism,

the communion of mankind,

the redefinition of sins,

the supremacy of the body,

and that somehow everybody makes it (except Hitler and Donald Trump).

Amen.

Children

“If we could view all of their (our children)sinful behaviors as precious opportunities to teach them then we would be far more righteous in our training. We would be joyful and eager all the time rather than angry and frustrated.”
