Re: Aikido and being Christian

I second Jun's request. There is enough conflict and devisiveness in the world. We should all be trying to figure out how to get along and live together.

If you look at it from a strictly statistical standpoint, Christians only make up 1/3 of the worlds population. That is alot of other people out there that all don't necessarily think alike. You aren't going to convert them all over, and yet, we need to all get along somehow!

So, I find it much more constructive to discuss how aikido and Christianity can interact to help reconcile much of the conflict we have in the world.

If this is not your cup of tea, I don't understand why you would waste your time with an art such as aikido or with aikiweb that pretty much has as one of it's goals to create good/happy people that want to promote peace and harmony in the world.
