Then article is written by a 17 year old who is really on the ball. It’s short and definitely worth reading the whole thing!
It’s no wonder people hate the topic of religion. people who know theology don’t usually try to just simply teach it to people, they try to shove their knowledge of it down other people’s throats. They make them swallow it like medicine, hoping it’ll cure them of whatever it is they’re going through. Theology is knowledge about God, but loving someone the way God wants us to is Wisdom. We are meant to be an example to those who don’t know any better, not the thing that drives them away from the most wonderful thing on Earth. The hard part is finding balance.
I think the people around us are kind of like puzzle pieces. some of them fit perfectly without even trying, and others don’t fit at all, so they move on without trying… But then there are those that we want to fit to us. that we desperately try to get them to be in our lives and fit to us perfectly. But they can’t because as close as they are, they just don’t fit to us. and those are the ones that hurt the worst because you know that they are good people, they just don’t go with our part of the puzzle.
