My own personal stance against religious hypocrisy - both my own, and any others who seek to hurt people in the name of God.

Portion of Scripture - 1004

From today's reading.

Luke (chapter nine)

[46] And an argument arose among them as to which of them was the greatest.

[47] But when Jesus perceived the thought of their hearts, he took a child and put him by his side,

[48] and said to them, "Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me; for he who is least among you all is the one who is great."

[49] John answered, "Master, we saw a man casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he does not follow with us."

[50] But Jesus said to him, "Do not forbid him; for he that is not against you is for you."

[51] When the days drew near for him to be received up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.

[52] And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him;

[53] but the people would not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem.

[54] And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, "Lord, do you want us to bid fire come down from heaven and consume them?"

[55] But he turned and rebuked them.

[56] And they went on to another village.
