Notional Christianity vs. radical conversion

2 thoughts on “Notional Christianity vs. radical conversion”

  1. I had no idea that Rwanda was mostly catholic. I always thought it was one form of islam vs another form of islam.

    Where did all this intolerance come from? Jesus was very tolerant of people’s differences, at least as I read the bible. I keep hearing that catholics hold grudges. Maybe we are not teaching forgiveness, tolerance, and mercy enough in our faith. Is this something we should be taught more of in our faith? Rose

  2. Rose, you are right. Jesus taught us to love everyone, even our enemies. There is no place for hatred in our lives if we are faithful to him.

    I am saddened to hear you say that Catholics have a reputation for holding grudges. We have to change that. If we don’t learn how to forgive, if we don’t learn how to love, we are not following Christ. Period.

    It’s hard to forgive. We all know that. It’s hard to give up rivalries and social patterns that contribute to fear and hatred, some of which were in place long before we were born. Yet that’s what conversion is all about. CHANGE.

    The Spirit gives us the power to change. And the community must embrace that change, or else — you guessed it — we slide right back into our old ways.

    Thank you for writing. Keep teaching mercy and love, as Jesus did. It really does matter.
