A Religion of Inclusion

If religion,  particularly Christianity, encourages a person to question the fundamental worth of a fellow human.... if the pastor encourages parishioners to lean more toward exclusion rather than inclusion.... if churchgoers feel a sense of certainty about who is "in" and who is "out" as far as Church, God and Heaven are concerned,  then I'd suggest that it's time to take another look at the Christianity being followed. Christianity has a lot to atone for,  especially as humans have used the religion to further human interests for thousands of years.  Look for the paradoxes. It should be difficult to grasp and full of Mystery.  Prayer should ultimately lead to humility AND greater LOVE.... and I'm personally devastated repeatedly by the ways humans use Christianity to cause harm.  As a Christian, I say NO.
