Here is what I don’t understand: How can you think that I would be disrespectful to Alex? It amazes me how everyone just loves to jump to the worst conclusion!
Yesterday morning I was groggy. I came downstairs and read Alex’ comment about God being an intellectual exercise. And, I thought, “No! He’s going about it from the wrong direction! He needs hands on!”
And I immediately reminded myself of the different points one can enter a circle. For example, Jews have told me that love of Law leads to love of God–and it does. Christians take it the opposite direction–Love of God leads to love of His Law.
And something came to mind I hadn’t thought of for a long time–my dad’s college books. I hadn’t understood them any better than Alex understands the Bible. However, love of those books–even though I did not understand them in the least–led to an appreciation and use of that material AT THE PROPER TIME. Alex will be–and is–just fine.
Why is everyone so sure everyone is always trying to be insulting? I did not grow up in such a culture, I don’t think that way, and today’s culture, today’s attitude toward a President disturbs me and leaves me aghast. And no wonder. It’s leaven that is spreading throughout the country. Beware of the Pharisees, indeed! And yes, I am angry. Not with you so much, and certainly not with Alex. I have known from the day I joined Alex, print, no facial expressions, not truly knowing each other, misunderstandings occur. It’s just the attitude in this country in general. I’ve been seriously thinking of turning off both the news and Hannity for Lent this year and see where it leads.
Wishing you well…
