What can I say, i'm a protestant... rebel till the end I guess. Its not that im like 'that money could be used to help poor people starving in africa' or something. I hope its not a 'bottle of nard' type of thing. Just not a fan of tradition. It sometimes upholds bad moves that are now cemented in stone. Or in some cases wood. As more cultures join the group new traditions enter and paper over old ones. That's always gonna happen. But what about the roots though? Or who cares about the roots when the boughs are heavy with such golden fruits? Its a tough choice. Fruits are so much tastier than roots. Which one is better? Is it about your senses or something more evolved? How did it end up for old king shlomo with all the wives and all the diplomatic embassies/temples? Imagine if the church was a leaner more agile grassroots organization with no more than 3 levels of administration with smaller social outdoor venues of worship instead of a multi hierarchical imperium with castles and keeps worldwide? Against the current and coming threats I mean. Are we still fighting the good fight? Or are our generals fat corrupt old money elite leftist Zadocs and holier than thou new rich conservative Pharsees cought with their pants down one too many times without the ability to mount a proper strategy for the winning of hearts and minds to God because they have been too busy feeding themselves for far too long? Maybe. Maybe that was a way too huge of a sentence. I was dreaming when I wrote this. I know, i'm a dreamer. 'I'm not the only one' sounds like a menacing threat though. Probably the kind of idea that got what's his name with the horns kicked down out of you know where.
