Note: TSOMDC = The state of modern-day Christianity
TSOMDC: Hey. I’m almost out of juice. Do you know where I can plug my laptop in?
Jesus: Yeah, there’s an outlet right there.
TSOMDC: So I plug it into you?
Jesus: No. You take your plug and stick it in the outlet. That’s the source for the electricity you are looking for for your laptop
TSOMDC: I think I see. You are not the source for the electricity but I can get electricity from you.
Jesus: I’m going to break this down so even a moron such as yourself can understand this. Follow the cord from your laptop, past the boxy thing, all the way down to the end to the plug shaped curiously like the openings on the outlet there. You take your little hands and you push that plug into the outlet without any intervention from me because you can do this yourself.
TSOMDC: Oh! Duh! Sorry. So you will put your fingers into the socket, channel the power and I can only get electricity with you as a proxy. Sheesh… now I understand.
Jesus: GODDAMN IT! Did I stutter? Did I mumble? Do you see a three-prong opening anywhere on me?
TSOMDC: So I have to have faith in the face of concrete evidence or you won’t give me any power for my laptop?
Jesus: You just fucking suck. Good luck ever finding power. Even with me pointing directly at the source you can’t even…..argh… you know what? I’m outta here. I seriously do NOT have time for your bullshit….. <exits in a huff through the front door>
TSOMDC: So, I’m still getting into heaven….. right?……………. Jesus?
Religion is spirituality by proxy. While it can be a step to fulfilling that inner part of you, only the spiritually lazy and ignorant never move past it.
Heaven is not a place nor an afterlife but a state of mind – Hell likewise.
Beyond words, even concrete ideas, there is a source. Find it.
