    To be human is to be forever striving to be something more than human.

    I’m probably in the realm of the “Rational Saint.” I am motivated by a feeling of obligation or duty. Whether it is from a sense of guilt or inherent in my genetic pattern, I really don’t know nor am I curious to know the source.

    I agree that Christianity produces hypocrisy. I also firmly believe that *all* belief systems equally foster their own share of hypocrites. Once a particular belief system becomes dominant, it perpetuates the position of omnipotence and encourages followers to believe in their own superiority. It creates and endless cycle of hypocrisy.

    Have a great weekend my Kenyan brother. Naked hugs!

  5. You need keywords on your page that are relevant to that
    on the search term. Last notes: Don’t generate too many links in the time via the
    same Machine. First be aware that SEO is really a
    long term thing. http://www.imprentalasvegas.com/how-to-make-big-bucks-by-playing-free-online-casino/

    There are good and questionable people in all religious denominations – not only Christians.
