There was once this cult.

It was a scary cult, one that says one thing but does something way different.

In a macabre sort of ritual, they ask their new initiates to eat human flesh and drink human blood.

Their leader was given a lowly criminal death, but yet responded only in love. Yet this cult has, and continues to, perpetuate violence in his name.

Many members have the audacity to look down and ostracize those whom the founder spent his life talking to, teaching about, and walking with.

Yes, it's Christianity, and no, I don't think it's a cult. I just wondered what other people, outside of Christendom, might think of this interesting religion.

We live in a culture of bigger and better, as if jumping into the sea of consumerism will somehow cure us, and baptize us into the new life of lower prices and great deals.

It's not Jesus that saves in this so-called Christian-principled country, it's YOU that can save, if you just buy our $55,000 Lincoln Navigator that gets a killer 5 miles to the gallon, highway.

Somehow our poor savior born in a barn becomes the modern American, spending more now so we can pay more later, living in a 4-bedroom, 3-car garage for 2 people.

I'm just so tired of Christianity being hijacked as a religion FOR YOU. It's not about you, for God's sakes. We're all in this together.
