Understanding

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I don’t understand how an all loving, all forgiving God can get offended.

I don’t understand how anyone is offended by God, anymore than

I understand how those that do believe are offended by those that do not.

It took some time for me to come to this non-understanding, in doing so it

has brought me to a deeper understanding and love for all fellow human

beings despite their beliefs. This, which at first caused me anguish and distress

has led me to stronger faith and understanding. We gain strength by running into

that which causes us strife rather than attacking those that disagree and running away.
