I still can’t accept what I see in the mirror. Will I ever be able to? It remains to be seen. Pun intended.

Religion is made by man. Do not miss the forest for the trees.
———–

Instead, we looked at the human defects of these people, and sometimes used their shortcomings as a basis of wholesale condemnation.  We talked of intolerance, while we were intolerant ourselves.  We missed the reality and the beauty of the forest because we were diverted by the ugliness of some of its trees.  We never gave the spiritual side of life a fair hearing.

There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.

    I still can’t accept what I see in the mirror either. More even than a sobriety issue, this is going to be a life issue. I don’t know how I decided to hate myself … OK, sounds kind of weird, but that’s where I am. The fundamental step for my sobriety is letting God be God, and simply accepting who I am as I am for now – no more fighting with myself!
