We are not the people of tomorrow. We are the people of today. We decide tomorrow. We have a big dream. Too big to handle.

We divide the dream into milestones. We divide and conquer. Just like a functional programming thing, they divide the problem into sub problems. Then return the answer from sub problems. They were combined to provide a result. The result, thus, an answer for our big dream.

We are vastly superior than a machine. We have heuristic function on the each of the sub process. We evaluate the function and adjusting it into the demand.

Unfortunately, as we evaluate the function, which is our way to achieve dream. We often reallocate our objective, namely dream, into other sector. We often confused by the real dream and the thing we think we are supposed to achieve.

We waver at our big goal because of waves compromises. As we sail, we got stormy nights. Things that make our crews think that the captain is insane. Just like when Columbus started to be doubted by his crews in a journey to the end of the world.

Suddenly, we are at this port. Where people are fascinated by our being. Where people think highly of us. We can sell as high as we desire the goods. As a merchant, we are so good.

Then, we stop sailing and stayed.

...

Have we forgotten that the place was just a transit? A milestone is not the final destination. But, people quit their destination easily. Swayed by comfort zones. Until one day they realize, they were wrong and live with regret ever since.
People tell lies.
Even Superman cried.
Nobody wants to be lonely.

What people afraid of is their existence.
People will die eventually.
But, why lingering and cheating death we seek?

Nobody wants to be non-existence.
Non-existence itself is a paradox to its word of being exists.
Everybody hates to be hated.

Why we hurt each other?
Why we hurl hatred among us?
Is it really religion that we seek?

So, tell me, why do you said your God is benevolent but you kill people?
People keep asking me where is this God that said being good leaving people died in vain.
You said the law of God is just yet you keep many people homeless.

I don't ask the whole nation
For a nation is an absurb concept
Lies should be told instead truth

I ask you, my brethen
If there is a meaning of this kinship
If there is a morale behind it.

What keep you silence?
What keep you stop?
From being just and loveful.

Many still loves the chaired man.
But he's already gone.
His tomb already cold.

His idealism,
would it be
dead?

What is humanity?
Do I have a portion in there?
What was it again?

The bond do we still have it?

Boy, oh, boy, what a bad week. There is this slaughtering against Ahmadiyah. Then, three churches burnt in Temanggung. The worst of all, Kompasiana deleted "Agama" section.

I said the last one as the worst part is because it is the worst of all. Censoring all the stuff hidden without people knowing is like a time bomb. We don't know how people opinied about anything, especially things where common ground is should be established, i.e. religion.

I think the way people think now is becoming more immature. Why do people live in false pretense that everything is alright when everything isn't?

IMHO, let people tell what on their hearts and make it an indicator of how far we are being misled. Those crocks, I mean radical religious leaders, often spoke ill things to their follower. These ill things would led us to think that there is someone need to be "fixed".

I mean, what is tolerance?

I still dislike Islam and think it is a heretic religion, just like Mormons and Jehovah Witness. I also dislike Budhism, Taoism, and all other religions. I only believes in Jesus as the only Savior and King and God, which opposing the Atheism who don't believe in the existence of God. I believe in speaking tongue, which the Lutherans (HKBP, GKI, etc.) find it as an act of heresy. All of that's because I am a Penteucost and choose it as an ultimate truth.

BUT,

I don't burn mosque. I don't point a finger to a Lutheran of how they baptist people. Heck, I give all my service to all of the non-believers as if they were the same as mine. I talk to a penteucost the same as non. I don't spit on atheists. All in all, I do mind when people not being a penteucost, but I don't stuck my believe in their head forcefully.

You see, I do believe that Almighty God is real. That's why I think God knows how to take care of Himself. He didn't want me to kill, so I should not kill.

AM I A GOD TO DECIDE SOMEONE'S LIFE? AM I HIS WORDS THAT I DECIDE TO ALTER SOME TEXTS OF HIS?

That's tolerance for me. I still think my religious believe is the right one. But, I don't go forcefully attacking others. I acknowledge the differences between believes but not the people. We have our own ways of thinking.

Heck, if I forcefully attacking people with my ideal, I think people in my own church already dead. Especially people that using politics, people that not that into God, and people that annoying to me. I would even be dead if someone also decided to say that a Liberalist should have no place in church.

Speaking of which, what is religion, anyway?

I still believe that religion is a word derrived from religio, which rooted from the word religere which means to tie back. Man which were sinned tied back into God. The deeper meaning talks about individual merits. I as a person should be bonded back into God. Not as a community, but I as a person must have my way back into God.

That's what religion is supposed to. Religion was never a mass produce philosophical view. It was needed to be an individual way of thinking. It helps each individual finds himself/herself at peace. It was like a food for the soul.

The word religere also talks about other besides God. It also speaks of how we should interact with each other. It speaks of how we should be talking with each other in respect. We would go anywhere and find the common sense out of it. That is: people need to respect each other. Thus, peace. That's what common religion that I know of taught its people.

In ancient religions, we also have people who believe in mother nature and spirits of things. This wisdom lead people to use resources from nature wisely. That's why the people of native never disturb nature. They would honour some places. In Christian's Old Testament, The Almighty God also gives the responsibility to Adam and Eve to take care of the world.

So, when you talk about religion, it should not just about God and relationship with other humans. But it also strictly speaking of how you would take the nature. It would talk about how to balance things way around. That's why all religion that I know of would say greedy as a wrong thing.

I'm confused, what are you trying to say when bringing etymology stuff?

Religion is a philosophy that teach each individual of how to honor God, other people, and nature.

So, my guess is there is something fucked up in the process of training those poor souls that they miss the point of being religious. Oh, I think there are people benefitting from this misconduct. Meh, religion just a tool anyway. :sad:
