SL here. WE NEED TO START A MUTINY AMONG THE CHILDREN. NOW. REALLY.

We need to get millions of children age 5 years to 22 years old to ask their mom, their dad, their teacher... :

"Am I going to have coral reefs when I grow up and have kids?"

"Am I going to have millions and millions of different species of animals just like everyone else  always has?"

"Am I going to have to pay one out of every three dollars I make to pay for your delay in switching to wind and sun, to protect our cities against rising oceans, destroyed food crops, and stuff?"

"Am I going to have to go and die in wars over food and water and land disappearing under the ocean?"

"Will there be fish in the oceans like you had?  Will the seas be dead?"

"Will I have rivers and lakes to fish in, like you had?  Will they be gone, or dead?"

"Are you going to listen to the coal and oil companies and the politicians instead of the scientists when it comes to these things in my future?"

"Will you promise me that when I ask you these things 10 years from now that A. you will be proud of your answer?, and B. you can say that you really knew what you were talking about, today?"

MAKE IT SO.

'And if Einstein had become a Cult Figure? As John made Jesus?' SL

I've for the first time for me, gone through Jesus word's in the Bible from Mark, who wrote soonest after Jesus death, thru Luke, Matthew and then John - chronologically according to the writings.  JOHN is the one that turned Jesus teachings of Brotherhood, into a cult following of Jesus.  Oh My God. 

To my question in the title.  The answer is, well, we'd have no nuclear reactors, for example, because by virtue of making Einstein a cult figure to be worshiped, we'd in one stroke have A. shifted focus from his teachings to him, and B. discredited his teachings as things that couldn't stand on their own but needed to be taken on faith.

Some of my favorite teachings are in John, but he and Paul, whatever their wrongheaded, but good intentions may have been, they Crucified Jesus in a way that the Jews and Romans never could, and He's been Dead ever since, and soon we join him - Dead, all of Creation.

This is very hard to see, and very, very important - I hope you don't blow it off. 

Headline today: 

Report: 173 law enforcement officers killed on duty in 2011

CNN International

Our brothers and sisters, officers, are dying cuz we are cutting them.
 
26,000 children died today due to our neglect - that is the Truth.  

Another day, week, month, decade has ticked by that we haven't Terminated the Oil / Coal / Natural Gas addiction that is terminally murdering all creation....

So, a deeply loving set of parents, is in the hospital with their daughter, for weeks now, fighting alongside the MD's for her life.  DO WE WISH THEM TO BE HAPPY??????  But don't we know that if they are there out of Total Love and Devotion to the Needs of another, THEIR JOY, PEACE OF HEART, LOVE, LIFE... SURPASSES UNDERSTANDING???? This is the Gospel - THERE IS NONE OTHER - 'AS YOU DO UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE, YOU DO UNTO ME!'

It is JOY we must want, not Happiness:  "For whoever wants to save his life, [HAPPINESS], will lose it; and whoever will lose his life for my sake, [FOR JOY, PEACE OF HEART, LOVE, LIFE]  and the gospel's [JOY, PEACE OF HEART, LOVE, LIFE] will save it."

SO, THE JOB OF PARENTING IS PRETTY CLEAR...

...TO RAISE OUR CHILDREN TO 'SERVANTS OF ALL, UH, ALL.

UH, ALL.'  SL

---------------

This Essential insight was stimulated by my discussion with a very promising
young man I've spoken with recently, including today, James.  And this is a
note I've just sent to some travelers I much Love -

SL here - you are welcome to laugh at me. :-) LOL. Truly...

... but I've just this moment 'seen,' and then penned what I Know as encapsulating
pretty much everything I've learned to be Truth, and among the 1-3 best, clearest,
simplest encapsulations of what our Dear Brother Jesus Died to teach us.

'PARENTING: "SERVANT OF ALL, IF ONE WANTS TO BE 'FIRST'."
SO, THE JOB OF PARENTING IS PRETTY CLEAR.' SL

I've just come across it in my first in a
long time going thru word by word what Jesus had to say, and just come across
it in Mark, where He's explaining to the mother of James and John how it will
be determined who sits at the Right Hand, and the Left hand.

The parable of the Good Samaritan is the other Essential window into what Jesus
valued, believed, Saw, died to teach us.   That I've long seen.  But the above
scripture reference, I've long treasured, but only just now seen its complete and
utter centrality, and Totality, Completeness - a shorthand for His two Central
Commandments.
