Be Conscious

There are other conscious Christians around. I am sure. They are on WordPress. Check them out. However, this particular one lives in Kuilsrivier, die Wes-Kaap, Suid-Afrika, and if there are any others around, it (this conscious Christian) would very much like to get to know them, reaffirm the connection if it already knows them, and then consolidate resources and start being super-conscious, subverting and transforming the structures that keep us from being all that we can be. We being everyone.

Structures include patriarchal, environmentally damaging attitudes and practices, social ills, hear-no-evil-see-no-evil-speak-no evil ostrich-like behaviour, downright stupidity, racism, fear of rocking the boat, closing ranks on power play…help me out here and list some more!

Yes, it will be opinionated and most probably make many people squirm. Those people must then go and read their favourite ego-stroking Christian magazine or whatever else floats their boat – no stress! The opinions expressed here will be based on extensive observation, wide-ranging knowledge of Christian issues and publications in the world, and the opinions expressed by Jesus in the Gospels as we have them. And other parts of the Bible.  They are open to challenge. If the challenge is also based on the opinions of Jesus in the Gospels as we have them, and knowledge of Christian teaching and practice before it got hijacked by the power needs of the western world as expressed by the Roman Empire and its successors.

The goal: a continually improving vision and definition of what the Kingdom of God on earth means and how we can contribute to it, instead of breaking down and stomping around in unawareness and letting things happen to us.

Creation, in the words of Paul, groans in anticipation of the revealing of the sons (including daughters…poor old Paul was a product of his time…) of God. Let it groan for not too much longer.
