Re: Aikido and being Christian


"Judge not lest ye be judged..."

People sometimes misinterperate the message of Jesus to be doing away with the old testament when in fact he came to cross the T's and dot the lower case J's.

What he said though was that we will only be judged by the old testament if we ourselves judge by it. We will only be judged in the way that we ourselves judge. I mean, to me that makes perfect sense. What I refuse to believe is that a man who is born in asia who never hears about christ, but leads a good life not judging of others goes to hell for not "following jesus"

Maybe if we all just stopped passing judgement over eachother and what we do we could all get along. But why would anyone want that?
