As It Was In The Beginning?

To be brutally honest, after 2000 years of being handed down through human hands, I think Christianity has picked up some baggage along the way. But what's so surprising? Christianity, after all, is made up of humans. I think too, and I hate to say it, but I think it has also lost some of the glory of its message. I think that's to be expected also.
- And most regrettably, Christianity, like other religions, has been used for politics. And even now, within its group, there are all sorts, just like there are in all other sorts of groups of people. Some are nice, some may not seem as nice, some are good thinkers and some may seem to others not to be! And to top it all off, any ole christian can be having a bad day, and might come off differently than they like. It's all human. But I think the message intended is separate from it all, and is very important, and is also just as pure, good and needed as it ever was and will be.
- I also however, have great respect for all the indigenous beliefs of the peoples and nations. Surely each great religion and faith began upon a great truth someone discovered. And then, like Christianity, some other good things were built upon it, and some not always so good. It's up to us to separate the true threads of a thing, from the threads not true.
