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 - 1006

From today's reading.

Luke (chapter twelve)

[22] And he said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on.

[23] For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.

[24] Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!

[25] And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life?

[26] If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?

[27] Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

[28] But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith!

[29] And do not seek what you are to eat and waht you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind.

[30] For all the nations of the world seek these things; and your Father knows that you need them.

[31] Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well.

[32] Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

[33] Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.

[34] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
