A day to celebrate and awesome, righteous man. A day sadly where we are asked to remember a terrible, traumatic, nasty death. Good Friday.
Good for us. He have been forgiven.
I saw a post today of all days - something about religions fighting wars about ‘fictional characters’. It was a smart ass comment, the last thing I believe God wants - is his children killing each other. So that comment got me thinking...
Who is a fictional character, well in my mind when someone tells me we have a Prime Minister of Canada - My mind thinks (USE to), someone that cares for his country , the land and the people. A passionate man, Strong and true, to keep us Glorious and Free!! - Yes that is my fine Canadian mind at work. So then we have . S.T. who is nothing like that. To me he has become a fictional character. Just Like George Bush probably has become to many - not the Man they hoped would rise above, Stand beside her, and guide her. Through the night with a light from above. From the mountains, to the prairies,To the oceans, white with foam. NO, not G.W. Jr.
So you tell me, who is a fictional character? The men that lie to us?
That is fiction. They are NOT who they appear to be.
Jesus was a man, the perfect man. IMO.
Who was murdered for no reason. For doing, saying and being what he was. He was not hurtful, jealous, greedy, selfish.
It is a lesson of LOVE like no other.
So if you want to say it is fiction, that is fine. In my mind He is and always will be, the best example/role model of a human being I am aware of.
Fictional or real.
It is a sad day. Very unfair. Like life can feel.
I do not focus on the sad, I focus on the LOVE and HOPE that Easter brings.
