Imagine, if we truly listened to God.
« on: December 17, 2002, 11:58:57 AM »
Imagine if we actually listened to God.
Alright; I'm christian (mormon), and I was just trippin' off something. Imagine, if we actually took Christ's words in the bible, and loved our god, and loved our neighbor. That's all we'd have to do, and the world would be perfect.

Think about it. If I truly loved my neighbor, then I would love my parents, and follow their righteous advice. I'd never have any problems, because if everybody truly loved each other, nobody would do anything to hurt each other. Even misunderstandings would be forgotten about...

I'd find a woman, and truly loving her, would wait until we were married to have sex... then; I'd love her so much (and her me) that we'd never cheat on each other. we'd never get angry, we'd constantly strive to make the other's life better. We'd have as many kids as possible, loving to create life.

If I made 10 million dollars at my job, I'd keep 30,000 and give the rest to people that were sick or not as fortunate. If I truly loved people, I'd prefer to see them wealthy then me, and they'd want the same thing, so the whole earth would be on the same economic schedule. Nobody would take advantage of it, since they all truly loved people, and would never make someone work unfairly. They'd all pull their share. There'd be sick and blind people who couldn't work, but we'd all love them so much we'd support them.

I wouldn't have to worry about my wife getting raped. I wouldn't have to worry about my kids getting molested, or about people stealing my property. I wouldn't have to worry about people murdering people... Abortion wouldn't even exist, because there'd be no reason to not want a baby.

Just imagine what the world would be, if we actually LISTENED to god. Even if you're not christian, every faith I know of believes you should love your neighbor, and just IMAGINE if we did that!

Now, back to reality. Think about what we've done to the world, LOL. Man, we're like sewer rats. We kill, curse, maim, hurt, rape, pillage, steal, plunder, lie, cheat, swindle. It's pathetic.

Word man, i think about that all the time, if we truly followed those basics of religion, the world would be a LOT peaceful.  And it isnt suprising how Sikhism and other religions preach bout pretty much the same things, peace

Your arguement will never work because your assuming that a person can simply make themself will to love each other.  I can't simply force myself to love everyone I know and why should I have to?  Specifically, what is meant by love?

We all dislike certain things.  Is this wrong?  And even if it is.. can a person simply decide to love all things?  Perhaps they can, but how can u convince a whole society to follow these rules.  And if you are going to impose them where is the evidence of their successfulness and feasibility.

I prefer indifference to love.  We can all become indifferent to wrong doing, but as soon as you teach yourself to judge this is lost.  In criticizing people for not "loving each other" you took away your ability to even remain indifferent.  So how can you possibility love those you judge?  Indifference is a much more feasible goal than love.

I can't force myself to love another, but I also realize I gain very little by judging another person.

If the world would have truly loved you, from the beginning, you would WANT to love everybody.  If you wouldn't have been exposed to all the crap we've done in the world, you wouldn't have a problem withit.  Peace~

What's the use of love if you can't hate sometimes?
