About peeves

 As I was walking my dog this morning, I realized something: My main peeve with certain people calling themselves Christians is that they are hypocrites.

They tell you you will burn in hell, because you are a Pagan, worship Satan and other things like that (Every Pagan knows the drill)
They do what we do, exactly the same things, but they believe they are going to heaven, because they SAY they are "Christian".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but part of the Christian philosophy is that we, evil people, Pagans, non-Christian, get our reward here and how, by the satisfaction of being judgemental, intolerant, unkind, haughty and other such things, as when the Christians get their reward there and then, in Heaven, Paradise, afterlife, where they will be having lovely time, while we burn in the eternal darkness of hell.
If you do what we do, you too will get your reward here and now, by the satisfaction you get from arguing with people, lying about your opponent, scaring your fellow Christians from doing what YOU think is "wrong", managing to persuade people to leave the religion, faith and God of their people and join yours.

Is it not so that Jesus tells you to expand the 10 commandments, and in stead of not killing people, not hurting them either with your words. "Call your brother a fool, and you deserve to burn", he said. And we are all brothers... Might be that some of us have been adopted into other families, might be that some of us have left the family we were born in, but every human being on this earth was created by One God, so we are all brothers. Might be that you don't like this, might be that you think we are wrong, do wrong, are "bigger sinners" than you are, it doesn't matter one bit.

You are to turn other cheek, give away what is asked of you, you won't need it anyway, because God will provide for you. You are to love your enemies as yourself, because we, Pagans, love our kinsmen and loved ones, so that's what people do. You Christians should be different from all the others. You should shine because of Jesus' blood. If you don't shine, your sins have not been washed away with Jesus' blood. You're still as dirty as the rest of us.

You shine, when all you do expresses love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
You shine when nothing you do expresses hate, fear, greed, selfishness, injustice, falsehood, jealousy, envy, lamenting, worrying, anxiety, frustration, anger, violence, blame, cruelty, uncompassion, prejudice, cowardice, weakness, mercilessness, pride, unkindness, inconsideration, alienation, coldness, segregation, hostility, argumentativeness, bellicosity, ostracization, dishonesty, passion, immodesty, pretentiousness, excessiveness, criticism, condemnation; the opposites of the Fruits of the Spirit.
If you don't shine, you are just one of us Pagans.

"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye."

This one is a bit busy. The paper could be a bit more dull, give an impression of a Victorian wallpaper... perhaps. There is a wide ribbon on which two photos are attached, a couple of miniature of old Halloween cards, a silver cat pendant, and text is written on a black tag with a cat on top.
But I like it :-)

P.S. In addition to The Truth about The Truth About Halloween and Being Poisoned

P.P.S. Jesus said: "Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter." The one who shines will enter, totally in spite of what this person says or believes to believe... if a Pagan shines, then she/he is not Pagan... according to Jesus. Perhaps something to think about for some people calling themselves Christians, and writing condemning people right and left.
