The Things We Do In The Name of God(or god)

Been doing a whole lot of thinking and studying and I am trying to comprehend the things that happen now in our society. I look at he WWJD? question and I am wondering if that is the situation with modern day Christians.

It's funny the things people do in God's name. People suffer, are maltreated.. people are even killed 'in the name of God'. CNN's Senior International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour had to do a documentary on the situation. I feel it is appalling to do harm to people in the name of God. I will speak from Christianity because I am a Christian and I don't think the God I serve will want me to cause pain on people.

I have seen thing happen to people by some religious leaders in the church. Most people forget to answer the WWJD question every time and just use the 'God' license to do whatever. Going through scriptures, we can clearly see that God is a God of mercy, slow to anger and is of great mercy. I see a God who loves the world so much that he sen his son to die for all the atrocities that the world will commit. I see a God who wants to have good fellowship with his children. Yes, he calls forth obedience and he wants every one to be loyal to him and obey every single command but the reward of doing this maketh rich and added NO SORROW with it.

So what are we talking about here? Before we do anything let us ask the WWJD? question. This way, we are doing all things to God's glory and doing the RIGHT things in the name of the One True God.

Till my next post...
