To Err is Human…

Don’t think this about you.  It’s not; and  it is.

Largely I wish you’d keep your gospel insights to yourself.  So many opinions about something you really don’t understand.

I believe we are here to learn.  Learn and progress.  More specifically we are to become “more Christlike”; and thus more Godlike.  We are well on our way actually.  We have bodies like god.  We procreate like God. We are able to practice love like God. We are our own agents, free to make our own decisions like God. We are in a testing chamber practicing to become Godlike. If you think this is blasphemy; please just move along you cannot be helped.

There is at least this thing I can think of that we cannot yet begin to practice. This thing which God does so perfectly and so completely and we fail so miserably at.  Forgiveness.  We speak about it.  We only understand a small part of it.  It is the biggest thing that sets us apart.  Gods capacity to forgive is so beyond our human ability that we cannot comprehend it.  But when we do… When we do we will begin to see the world and universe the way God does.

I heard someone say on the radio the other day that a good marriage is the union of two great forgivers.
