love and heretics

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness

To serve…

 “My country is the world, and my religion is to do good,” and that “our duty is to display justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy.” ~Thomas Paine

 

I was asked recently by a christian, how I would define “serving others” .  The above quote was my answer as a humanist.

 

The Christian replied, “that is my Jesus!”

 

I appreciate that particular interpretation of Jesus …though it seems there are so many differing interpretations of Jesus.
