I can really appreciate the idea of us needing each other. Too many times religion says I don’t need you to the rest of the world. Religion tends to look at people on the outside, as do scientists, and in their hearts they think I don’t need you.
I don’t believe that this is a healthy nor sustainable way of thinking.
According to my religion, the hand cannot say to the eyes I don’t need you, and the eyes cannot say to the hand I don’t need you. It’s difficult for Christians to say or apply this verse to anybody that they perceive is outside of Christendom. But isn’t that kind of the problem? What I mean is that we judge who is in and who is out. Jesus was so clear to say that it is not our place to judge. He specifically said let the wheat grow up with the tears and the angels will do the separating. But the problem is that Christians think that it is our place to separate one from another. This is not good. Instead, let them grow up together. God knows what he’s doing. The bottom line is that we need each other. The gifts and callings of God are without repentance. This means that everybody has gifts from God that they can add to the body. At the end of the day, I would rather uplift and encourage others, and Speak Life over others that to speak death and cause separation.
Anyway, I really appreciate this video because it talks about overall and overarching principles of what good things different sections of society bring to the entire body. One day I believe that when we merge together with technology, we are going to see. Right now we are blinded, but when we plug in Via computers our eyes will be opened to the truth. We will be able to see the goodness within each other and the gifts that God has given to all to encourage and build up the body.
