Brother, Matt...I commend you for writing the things you're writing on this thread. They're totally, 100% true and orthodox. God bless you. Also...I have recently come to the conclusion myself that Christianity and Aikido are 2 very different things and belief systems...well...it's obvious with the religious aspect of it...but you know what I mean, lol. I still like Aikido...I still practice Aikido...but personally...I just don't believe it to be in accordance with orthodox Christianity. It's not a sin or anything...it's far from being bad...but...on the spiritual and theological levels...they're very different and do not compliment each other.
You totally contradicted your self here.
