Wasting Time

I don't know if there is a Query like, "Do I use my time wisely?" But I spend way too much time reading political sites on the 'net, and very little time actually doing anything to change the political situation.

Since you didn't put your email address in your profile, I'm using this as a way to address you specifically about your Islamic quote on RichardM's blog. (So feel free to remove this!)

The Sufi strain in Islam has a lot to recommend it, in terms of recognizing the common inspiration behind various religions.

But that notion (common to a lot of Christians as well) that we're here undergoing some sort of moral quality-control for an afterlife; I think it's a misunderstanding. Jesus says God gives sun and rain for the just and the unjust--not "He loves everybody for awhile but when He finally gets ticked, watch out!" And that's not a side issue, that's a core message! We are supposed to love each other without blame or condemnation _because God does_!

Yes, I'd like to be less of a jerk more of the time. But in trying to be better, I'm not working to prove anything, because I already know how this comes out, and it's "Me '0,' God 'infinity.' "

Drop by over at my ravingsroost, whenever!
