I mentioned how I might write about my weekend when I got home from my trip, and take a little vacation from "religion" talk. But I just can't help myself and I'd like to talk about God. Besides, although this is one of the best weekends of my year and already can't wait 'til next year, I'm not so sure it would be all that interesting to you all? His "Lordship the gun-toting Atheist" would probably enjoy all the fire power we bring to our gathering, but the rest is just eating, drinking PBR, smoking Rocky Patels and praising Jesus. Oh, I almost forgot, we cap it all off by watching the movie "The Outlaw Josie Wales".
But when you watch this movie, or any war movie it's interesting to watch these noble people willing to die for a cause. Amazing courageous people laying their life down for strangers. Is there a cause you would die for? In the Old Testament Moses tells God he'd be willing to die for his beloved Israelites. I think he meant a physical death? And like Moses I think I'd lay my physical life down for the sake of others. But in the New Testament the Apostle Paul actually tries to make a deal with God and that he'd give his "spiritual" life for his Jewish Brothers. Now that's just crazy. I wouldn't even consider doing that for my Mama.
I guess what I'm saying is I'd give up my physical life to save an Atheists. But I wouldn't give up my spiritual life, even if it saved the whole worlds.
