I don't think I'd blame the state of things on the Christians! Although I believe a lot of things that are not recognized by mainstream Christians, I think the core Christian religion as taught by Jesus is very on the mark. And true Christianity would not promote or cause any problems of any kind in the world. That's the part that people don't get....the Christian Religion, as Jesus actually taught it, is a bit different than what is actually practiced by anyone!As in yesterday, today there are few if any people who understand the real meaning of Christianity the way that Jesus did! Plus its not any one group of people messing the world up...be they Christian, Mulsum, Native Americans etc etc etc etc....Collectively, its a bit of everyone messing it up! My problem with Christianity from a historical perspective is the brutal spreading and converting that went on. Worship Jesus or die! Maybe that's not what is taught, but it is what was practiced. And today Catholics are still against abortion and birth control, which is just simply an anitquated social perspective that makes no sense with today's knowledge and social and environmental awareness.At the root, it is people that are the cause of the problems, I agree, but religion fuels the problems.BTW, I only pick on Christians (and Catholics in particular) because I know the most about them. Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists have their hangups too I'm sure.To me spirituality is important, not religion.Chris
