Imagine there was no bible, no koran, no sacred texts at all. Imagine there was no “church” – no institution of religion and faith. Imagine there was no cross or Christmas. Imagine there were only vague memories of such a time. Imagine there was nothing “solid” anymore. Nothing that was evidence.
Then imagine someone said –
Please put the bible back together again. But there can only be 100 words. And what you write will be how we start again. What you write will be what used to be before it was not. What you write will be how we do not make war again.
I would write this.
“There was love without condition. Wherein each was at peace. None were better. None were worse. Each was sacred of each. This was named Love of Uncondition. Love never proven nor evidenced or bagged. Love within each – outflowing of all connected and healing. Then some claimed this God of Condition and made it like them and rules wrote – buildings built – tithes took – creeds created – duty demanded – correct now a condition of kindness. They made God of Condition. Not Love without. We sent them away. Love of condition is no love at all. Just a god.”
What would you write?
