excuse unedited cell phone grammar

jesus washed his diciples feet not only to illustrate his humility, but also to illustrate that we are here to ensure the greater good of our fellow human.

we are not here to ensure the greater good just for christians, but to all our fellow humans: jews, buddhist, hindus, blacks, gays, sinners(arent we all), conservatives, secularist, atheist and all others

it is interesting to note that the good samaritan didnt inquire to know the injured mans religious, socioeconomic or politcal status. he simply did this: the act of selflessly helping someone without seeking a recognition or monetary reward

the good samaritan's act was the love that jesus described as not being of the world


i dont convert or condemn as a christian; rather, i believe that making peace is a spiritual virtue



John 14:27 (KJV) Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Mark 12:31 (KJV) And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

i dont convert or condemn as a christian; rather, i believe in making peace with everybody.





John 13:5-9, 14 (KJV)
5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet

Romans 12:18
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

Romans 14:19
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

It speaks well of your Spirit that you do not need to consider yourself special in God's eyes because of what you believe.
