I’ve been thinking about this City Harvest Church case and what I’ve heard about the continued support of their congregation – their “flock” still believing they did what is best for the church and for God. there is such a disconnect between that and what Christianity started off being about: a man who wanted to love and treat people right (not Bob Marley, I mean Jesus Christ, of course, but Bob generally had the right idea too. ;))

why do we revere people who are selfish and dishonest and continue to alienate the humble people who actually keep our societies functioning? we continue to allow people who practice prejudice to dictate what rights people have. we continue to exalt the ones who are taking everything away from us, instead of the ones who are giving us everything. 

here’s something to put things in perspective, in case you can’t already see this off the bat:

IF SHE IS A DOMESTIC HELPER, CHANCES ARE SHE IS RAISING YOUR CHILDREN. 

IF HE IS A CONSTRUCTION WORKER, CHANCES ARE HE IS BUILDING YOUR HOME. 

IF SHE IS A NURSE, CHANCES ARE SHE IS EXPOSING HERSELF TO DISEASE TO KEEP YOU SAFE. 

IF HE IS A BUS DRIVER, CHANCES ARE HE IS STRENGTHENING YOUR WORK FORCE. 

IF SHE IS A CARETAKER, CHANCES ARE SHE IS LOOKING AFTER YOUR PARENT OR GRANDPARENT. 

IF HE IS AN ELDERLY SERVICE STAFF, CHANCES ARE HE IS SOMEBODY’S GRANDPARENT. 

IF SHE IS A POLITICIAN, CHANCES ARE SHE IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT IS LYING TO YOU AND STEALING FROM YOU. 

IF HE IS A LANDLORD, CHANCES ARE HE IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT IS LYING TO YOU AND STEALING FROM YOU. 

IF SHE IS A JOURNALIST, CHANCES ARE SHE IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT IS LYING TO YOU AND STEALING FROM YOU. 

IF HE IS A CEO OF AN MNC, CHANCES ARE HE IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT IS LYING TO YOU AND STEALING FROM YOU. 

IF SHE IS A BANKER AT THE TOP OF THE CHAIN, CHANCES ARE SHE IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT IS LYING TO YOU AND STEALING FROM YOU. 

IF HE IS A PASTOR OF A MEGA-CHURCH, CHANCES ARE HE IS PART OF A SYSTEM THAT IS LYING TO YOU AND STEALING FROM YOU.

there are many honest people trying to make an honest living as bankers, lawyers, journalists etc. I’m just saying we have the whole thing backwards so it’s time we wake our minds up to this everyday. think about every choice you make that empowers a system that discriminates and exploits a person who serves. think about what you do everyday that promotes vanity instead of protects goodness. and change it.
