Are We the Lions or the Lambs?

A mega church preacher in Atlanta gave a message recently in which he used a video of a lion hunt to help explain his sermon.  In this video, the lions were ravenously devouring their prey while the jackals waited for the scraps.  Once the jackals had their fill of the scraps then the buzzards picked through the remaining fragments.  Usually the buzzards and the jackals do not get enough to eat from the remnants of meat left by the lions.

The preacher then used this video as an example that nature doesn’t share.  Animals don’t share.  Humans are not only unique in their compassion, but Americans and Christians are especially unique in their generosity.  If Americans and Christians were the lion then the lion would step back and let the jackals and the buzzards eat with them.

I respect the approach of the preacher to say that humans are divinely imparted with the ability for service and compassion, but his limiting this attitude of compassion and justice to only Americans and Christians is arrogant, misinformed and near-sighted.

I find two problems with this idea:

1.     Does this mean that if you are not American or Christian that you are an “animal?”

2.     Have Christians and Americans always been the generous, loving, justice-centered people on the planet?

I’m not sure the preacher really wanted to compare other people groups who are not Christian or American to “animals.” Yet, the implication that only Americans and Christians would respond with charity and love is rather shallow.  All humans are created by God and contain a spark of the Creator.  At least, that is what my bible says.  Every single human is a distinct and loved creation by God and is imbued with a divine spirit.  I think by limiting good traits and characteristics to Americans and Christians while saying other people are not like that (thus like animals), recalls memories of racism and religious/cultural hatred.

Also, I agree America does a lot of good in the world and overall has a people that love to respond to the world in charity and love.  However, America is also responsible for countless acts of terrorism, hate, injustice, death, and torture.  It is not beyond the realm of reason to consider America as a devouring lion that takes what it wants and does not think of others.  It seems to me that it has been only recently that white American men have treated women, children, and different races with respect and equality.  It seems to me that it has only been recently that the disestablishment of religion has really meant to include those are not WASP.  It seems to me that Christians were recently the perpetrators of the Crusades, Nazism, and slavery.  And it also seems to me that Christians still treat those of different sexual orientations like jackals or buzzards.

I think the better sermon would say that Jesus wasn’t the lion; he was actually the lamb.  He chose to be the buzzard or jackal, not the lion.  He chose not simply to share resources but to actually live the life of the weak and disenfranchised.  He chose to dwell with us and walk among us.  If we are to be truly like Jesus, it isn’t only about sharing our resources, it is about being like the lamb, Jesus.  It is not simply sharing justice, love, and mercy but embodying them as well.  Christians and Americans are the cause of a lot of hurt, hate, and hell in the world.  Let’s not forget that as we chow down on our most recent prey.  Instead, let us figure out how to be like Jesus, the Lamb of God.

Swami, the Swimmer: An Email Exchange

This is my email exchange with a Hindu gentleman who thinks yoga is strictly a Hindu practice.  He was upset with me because we teach yoga at my church.  It gets really creative and amusing when he talks about being a Certified Baptism Instructor. :-)

———————————————————————


What you are doing in the name of Yoga is extremely ignorant and insulting. Your analogy citing that Hindus own Yoga is like saying Hindus own prayer is fatally flawed. Like so many you confuse generalities and specifics. Prayer is a general term while Yoga is not. Is there Hindu Christmas and Easter? According to your “logic,” of course. Your mean Christians own Dec. 25th?

Real Yoga is Hinduism; taught by Hindus and never for a fee. You are insulting Hindus and Christians.

Swami XXXXX

PraiseMoves » Why A Christian ALTERNATIVE to Yoga?

——————————————-————————-

Swami XXXX,With respect I am not forwarding your email to our leadership.  Your words seem hateful and angry.  I think you might have valuable information and much to teach Christians that practice yoga, but your judgmentalism leaves no room for dialogue or education.  In fact, I feel your email is not in the spirit of what you would consider Hinduism or yoga.Quotes are never exact on news articles.  Our description and explanation on CNN was much more than what you are referring to in your email and we have done some studying in this and tried to give an educated response.  I apologize if what we said was hurtful and I would’ve hoped for respectful dialogue.  But I assume that won’t be the case.
Be well.Rev. Mike Gregg


———————————————-

Sir,There is nothing hateful in the above. It is simply a fact that you, like so many, are completely ignorant of the facts of Yoga and thus insulting to all involved. I am always to have a mature discussion—it is inconsiderate of you to think otherwise. It appears you are looking for an excuse to not communicate. To put the whole phony yoga problem into perspective, think for a moment if a Hindu were to hold classes in Baptism. One could boldly claim: “I am a certified Baptism teacher and therapist. Baptism is, of course, an underwater exercise business. Now, some Christians claim to own Baptism but that is like saying that Christians have a hold on taking a therapeutic bath. We also offer Power Baptism, Pre-natal Baptism, etc., etc. and whole line of Baptism clothing that proudly shows off your bodily curves.”  As a Hindu, I would be very disappointed if devout Christians did not stand against such ignorant and insulting non-sense. As ridiculous as the above seems, so, too, does the modern certified yoga therapist teacher seem to the devout Hindu. Again, please consider the facts of Yoga and the inseparable Hindu connection. If you are Christian, why not focus on your religion and leave Hinduism to Hindus and those interested in studying Hinduism/Yoga? Regards,Swami XXXXX


———————————————-


I appreciate your point of view and apologize for my comments about your words being hateful. My opinion is that the word “ignorant” is used in hate.  It is usually used by folks that don’t understand the background of someone else.  I and our yoga teacher are not ignorant.  Out teacher has had education in the history of yoga, sanskrit and is a certified yoga instructor.  We might not be as educated in your point of view, but we are not ignorant.  We are always willing to learn.
On your baptism thought, I guess I’m not a good Christian in your mind.  Your thoughts on baptism don’t really bother me.  I believe all religions have their unique ways of understanding the divine based on culture.  Most religions have ritual washings and spiritual cleansing notions that use water.  For me to latch on to baptism as uniquely Christian would be near-sighted and not accurate.
As far as communication is concerned, you might be right about my desire to not communicate. I’ll do my best to check my motives.  However, I would really like to learn more about your beliefs about yoga and would welcome information.  If you would send me the names of some books which explain your views I will pass them along to our yoga instructor so that we can be better educated on what you believe.
Again, thanks for your time.
Mike

THE BAPTISM STUDIO & T.C.S. What is Baptism? Baptism is a universal underwater exercise/therapy. Baptism is not a religion but a way of life. Baptism is a science. Anyone of any religion can benefit from Baptism. Teacher Bio: Swami XXXXX, a Hindu, is a certified Baptism teacher. Swami belongs to the Baptism Alliance and is a Registered Baptism Therapist with 500 hrs of training. Swami is also a certified Communion Teacher (see below). Fees: Group Baptism $15. Private Baptism classes $50/hr. (Same for T.C.S.) Baptism Teacher Training: We are fully qualified to offer Baptism Teacher Training. Train today to be a certified Baptism Teacher. (Ditto for T.C.S.) THE COMMUNION STUDIO What is Communion? Communion is universal wine-tasting experience. Communion has nothing to do with religion and certainly not Christianity. Hallelujah, Maranatha,Swami XXXXXXCertified Baptism and Communion Teacher; RBT; RCT; 500 hr. EBT; ECT.


—————————————————-
Wow. Looks like you spent a lot of time on that.Again, do you recommend any books that explain your point of view?

Sent from my iPhone

———————————-

Not really. We go through this all the time. But, to continue, Since you are in the business of Baptism, I would like to come for a beginners Baptism class. How much? What do I need to wear? Unfortunately, your teacher who is claiming to be the “yoga teacher” does not communicate on this issue. As far as research: Simply look, in a dictionary and encyclopedia, the words “Sanskrit,” “Yoga,” “Atman” and “Brahman.” Get any book on comparative religions and find out where is the word “Yoga.” You could, then, refer to, basically, any book on Hinduism. For example, look in the Hindu texts the Hatha Yoga Pradapika, Yoga Sutras and the Gita, to name a few. It is important to note that the understanding of the Hindu/Yoga connection is not my view but the facts. Again, you should know all of this. I will send you a few pamphlets. Regards,Swami XXXXXX

The Spong Song by Josh Davis

Ooh dat theology so scandalous And ya know a conservative nigga couldn’t handle it See ya preachin that librul thang like who’s da ish With a look in ya eye so progressive-ish

……Uh

Ya like to preach at all the Spiritual But Not Religious spots And ya eschew to the crews all literalism like connect da dots Not just religion he likes the politics Cuz he was livin la socialist loca

[BRIDGE]

He think all the stories in the Bible are fake fake fake But he can still cynically use them like what what what so secular liberals will still let him move his butt butt butt

Let me hear that SPOOOOOOOOONG.

Fantasy Baseball Crushes My Spirit

FB is such a fun game. It is like a freaking roller coaster. If you don’t participate in FB or watch baseball, you will not know on what I’m about to bitch. So feel free not to read on.

For all you fantasy freaks, I had a bad injury day today. Don’t you hate those? A-Rod, Stephen Strasburg, and Ricky Nolasco. I also have Morneau already on the DL. I can live without A-Rod for a couple of weeks but my power and RBI take a hit. But I still have Holiday, Zimmerman and Votto to see me through. Pitching? Nope. I lose my two highest strikeout guys in Strasburg and Nolasco. Strasburg is probably done for the season because of a “twinge” in his elbow. That elbow is worth $15 million. I would be safe with him if I were J Wriggle and shut him down. Nolasco has a torn meniscus. Crap. That can’t be good. He’s probably done for the year too. Damn crappy NL last place teams. I don’t have any inning eating strikeout machines to take their places. I guess I’ll be streaming into the playoffs. Good news is I’m in first place, I’ve already clinched and I’m 20 games ahead of the third place team. I guess I’ll pick up some SS help in Ian Desmond or pick up Jordan Zimmermann to pitch. Maybe Homer Bailey? Kuo wouldn’t be a bad RP option. Oh well, I can always let the game crush my will tomorrow.
