Pope Francis defends atheists

USA TODAY - ‎14 hours ago‎
Atheists and other nonbelievers largely welcomed Wednesday's (May 22) remarks by Pope Francis that performing "good works" is not the exclusive domain of people of faith, but rather a place where they and atheists could and should meet.

"Loving, I feel like I just met the Savior In meeting you," said Erv Wagner, JUST WALKED FROM DETRIOT, at the end of our Joyful 15 minute exchange.. "We need one Erv, cuz otherwise, we're screwed now," Loving replied. (see Erv's links).

It was a most blessed 15 minute exchange.  Erv, probably my age, just walked, WALKED, from Detroit, FROM DETROIT! 

HE HAS PTSD AND ALZHEIMERS.

SUPPORT, ENCOURAGE HIM.

 A Christian is one who has the spirit of Christ. This is the only theology. (The Schweitzer Album, p. 37.)

05.21.13 Status: ARGH.  WE'LL NEVER KNOW WHO JESUS WAS, A RORSCHACH TEST.

From Wikipedia - ... there is no single portrait of the historical Jesus that satisfies most scholars.[14][15][16]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quest_for_the_historical_Jesus 

Day #3 of "Quest for the Historical Jesus," Albert Schweitzer.  Wow, agonizing.  It is agonizing, to realize, that in Truth, the man Jesus that has been so central to my Life, the only thing of which I can be Certain, in Truth, is that He is a product of my imagination, as would be my reaction to a Rorschach inkblot.

Schweitzer's book is a 200 year review of all the Biblical Scholars.  Arduous.  But I'm forcing myself through - firehose - but I owe it to you.

There is certainty beyond that, but extraordinary minds, and a few extraordinary spirits, like Schweitzer, have spent person-decades on the task in recent centuries and, again, From Wikipedia - ... there is no single portrait of the historical Jesus that satisfies most scholars.[14][15][16]

Quotes from Schwietzer:

The Quest of the Historical Jesus Quotes (showing 1-2 of 2)
“The demands of Jesus are difficult because they require us to do something extraordinary. At the same time He asks us to regard these [acts of goodness] as something usual, ordinary.”
Albert Schweitzer, The Quest of the Historical Jesus
“He comes to us as One unknown, without a name, as of old, by the lakeside,
He came to those men who knew Him not. He speaks to us the same words: "Follow thou me!" and sets us to the tasks which He has to fulfill for our time. He commands. And to those who obey Him, whether they be wise or simple, He will reveal himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings which they shall pass through in His fellowship, and, as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience Who He is.”
Albert Schweitzer, The Quest of the Historical Jesus
 
 The essential element in Christianity as it was preached by Jesus and as it is comprehended by thought, is this, that it is only through love that we can attain to communion with God. All living knowledge of God rests upon this foundation: that we experience Him in our lives as will-to-love. (Out of My Life and Thought, p. 277.)

Jesus as a concrete historical personality remains a stranger to our time, but His spirit, which lies hidden in His words, is known in its simplicity, and its influence is direct. (Quest of the Historical Jesus, p. 399.)

A Christian is one who has the spirit of Christ. This is the only theology. (The Schweitzer Album, p. 37.)

What would the Lord Jesus have answered when someone came to Him in pain? Quick, waste no time. Get him to the operating room. “Whatever you do unto the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.” [Gospel of Matthew 25:40] This is my image of the Kingdom of God -- not the Apocalypse -- only this is the right meaning. (The Schweitzer Album, p. 38)

He comes to us as One unknown, without a name, as of old, by the lake side, He came to those men who knew Him not. He speaks to us the same word: “Follow thou me!” and sets us to the tasks which He has to fulfill for our time. He commands. And to those who obey Him, whether they be wise or simple, He will reveal Himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings which they shall pass through in His fellowship, and, as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience Who He is. (Concluding paragraph, Quest of the Historical Jesus.)

How is Jesus alive for us? Do not attempt to prove his presence by formulations, even if they are sanctified by the ages. Of late I have very nearly lost my temper when some pious soul has come to me saying that no-one can believe in the living presence of Jesus if they do not believe in his physical resurrection and the eternal existence of his glorified body. Jesus lives for everyone whom he directs, in matters great and small, as if he were here among us. He tells them ''Do this or that.'' And they answer, quite simply, ''Yes!" and go about their job, humble and busy… The fact that the Lord still, in our days, gives his orders, proves to me - and for me it is the only proof - that he is neither a ghost nor dead, but that he lives. 

If you will let me explain in my way this living presence, I will say to you: ''The eternal body of Jesus is simply his words; for it was about them that he said 'Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away!’ ” (Sermon preached on November 19, 1905; cited in Albert Schweitzer: Essential Writings. )

Marta brought me a beautiful chicken dinner tonight. This is the MARTA that has been cooking all afternoon as she does every weekend for we homeless throughout the DC area. But she was so overjoyed that I terminated the death fast that weeks ago she said she could hardly wait to bring me a special dinner. And she did so tonight, bless her heart. Oh, and I got to the delicious rice and steak bits that she brought for everyone else too. That will be tomorrow's delicious lunch, if I can keep it away from the rats as I sleep.

45 ish brother Tyrone tonight, ' loving, I don't want you to die. I need you and your example every day. You for found a change to me in the last 6 months that I've known you.' in all the time we've spoken it probably hasn't accumulated to more than 15 minutes.' but, they say, I walk the walk. I reminded him that if I leave him it's because he made that choice. Or he could make the choice to keep me in his heart. He was adamant that he'd make the latter choice, without any prompting for me.
