An apple has three layers.
The skin, the flesh and the seed.
Christian faith likens this to God.
Where the skin encompasses the whole.
The flesh is the main part representing the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the seed where faith sprouts from.
I do not know if I believe in the Christian God anymore
for I find myself being pushed away
by the extreme fanatics who claim
every one is the devil’s pawn
if they don’t conform to their social group’s lifestyle.
If so much hate is in this world
I do not wonder why Jesus weeps.
For loving one another means accepting everyone
for who they truly are.
I still have problems with this concept
but I know that just because they believe something different
does not mean they should be demonized.
