  1. Even for those who don’t believe who Jesus said he is, there is a lot to admire. He always knew who he was, and what he was a part of, and always told the truth. He rarely if ever thought about how he felt, except in a prayer, asking if it was possible to take away what was about to happen to him. Even then, he said not what I want, but what you want be done. He was never in a hurry, and had time for the people he met. And, the vast majority of the people he met were better after meeting him. He never failed to call out the hypocrites, but was never mean when he did it, always calling those he confronted to come back to the truth. What he accomplished through selflessness changed the world, and continues to change people. Too bad portions of society look down upon those who say “I want to be like Jesus”, because they fail to truly understand what that means.

    Here are a couple of quotes I thought of while ready your essay. The first I admire for its truth & simplicity, the second for the honesty it took for the speaker to see himself in the light.

    “Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.“ ~ Confucius, “The Analects”

    “The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of “rich men” behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." ~ John Swinton, New York journalist, at a banquet

    Can’t tell you how much I appreciate the depth that you & Ben go to, to peel back the layers fiat life. Thank you.
