Can't we all agree to disagree

Why does it or should it matter, Black, White, Mexican or Russian for that matter any ethnic group, humanity is what matters not ethnicity. Why can’t we be more into humanity, and less into where someone is from and what color or religion they are. I for one am a white Christian. But what does that matter, what does it say about who I am, or what I am as a person? I have met many people over my life some who claim to be Christians, and some who claim to be involved practicing Wicca, or Atheist, to me it is what kind of human being are you that matters, not your religious faith, or your color, or where you are from. What should matter is how we treat others. All people regardless of ethnicity and religion should be treated with dignity and respect . While yes, I do believe in one God and One Son! I do also believe God gave us all free will to choose to accept or not accept him. I do believe we are to share our beliefs but not cram them down others throats. If we are not living as Christian yet we preach God with out showing Christ love, we not do more damage than good, than if we show them Christ love rather than cram him down there throats.

I believe the best way to share those beliefs is in the way we live our lives daily and by showing Gods love more so than by preaching it. I feel the best way to share our faith is by the love and respect we afford each and every person we meet in our daily lives and in how we live our lives. To describe someone as good or bad based on skin color, or religion, I find disgusting. And in my belief there was only one Adam and one Eve. Thus making us all brothers and sisters in Christ. The difference only comes in to play as to whether we choose to act as brothers and sisters, and accept one anothers right to choose there own religious beliefs.

As far as color goes I do not believe God sees people in colors but rather as his children. God gave man a right to choose him or not, so how is it for me or no man or woman to judge those who decide to live differently. Not all Christians are judgmental and not all are hypocrites. Just as not all blacks or Hispanics or middle Eastern, or any other race are bad or good. We need to look at the person not what they look like on the outside but rather on the inside how do they treat others. Can’t we just all agree to disagree and become one with the universe and one with God.

To me being a Christian is being as Christ like as humanly possible. Christ did not sit in a church demanding those who wanted to know him come to him, Christ went out in love and taught them through actions and how he lived his life with love and compassion.he did not sit in the church and wait on the sinner to come to him, he went to them in love and showed them compassion. He accepted them and ministered to them in love not in disdain. We are all sinners and none of us have earned nor are we capable of earning our way into heaven and God knows I have done my share of sinning and I do not lead the perfect life I am not one to look to as a role model. But I am one to say he has brought me through many perils I could not have endured had he not lifted me up. The thing I ask is that we all respect each other though our religions and our colors may be different we are all of the same origin. After all is it not how we treat others that defines who we are as individuals.

Artist's Description

I write this due to an e mail I recently received about prejudice both having to do with hatred of Jews and blacks. I was appalled by this email and had to speak out, this was my reply to them.

One thing I do want to clear up: I do not believe all religion is heading to the same ends, nor am saying we all go to heaven no matter our religion, I am saying we need to respect other despite there religious views and accept and treat them with love and respect. No matter their religion or ethnicity all people deserve that we treat them with kindness and respect.
