> Dear, dear Saint Bob,
> I was at a meeting last night and the comment was made (by an Atheist friend) that the only people in our community who did community "service" were those who believed in God. People who respect God seemed to have a different attitude toward their community and their world. He said they take more of an interest in community service, and show more love to their fellow-men.
> That got me thinking, and the thought I “created” was: A person who gets on the path with God will be led to take care of the world. Therefore, God’s love for the world is made manifest through those who are in tune with Him. But when I attempted to write it, the following came out, and as soon as it was written I doubted it was true, so I wanted to see if anyone else could pick it out, or re-write it to be right. Thus, the false statement, or perhaps if understood, it is still true----:
> “God's love for the world can only be manifest through people who are in tune with the cosmos.”
> So, Dr Bob! what’s with this, “don’t do it again” bit? Sorry, but I couldn’t see anything wrong with trying to draw out a discussion, and some opinions.
> After I wrote the preceding quote I wondered if it was right, but I wasn't sure how to change it so I left it alone. How would you change it? Perhaps - - God's love for the world is made manifest through his creations? Maybe you don’t think God loves the world? Or, heaven forbid, you don’t think He created it?
> I respect the opinions of those who don’t know how the world was created. I mean things of the spirit can only be understood by the spirit. Unless you have developed your spirituality, you’re not going to “get it” by reading “words” as merely words.
> However, I could say, “God created the world”. “God loves the world”. “God loves you” and you should be able to feel through the spirit that it is true.
> Written with a wink and a smile, and of course love to everyone - - - - - raywonderfulwoman
