Jes My idea of fulfillment is to find something that I am passionate about, that is important, and that makes me useful.
...I am still seeking fulfillment.

B.C. Dudney | 18 comments Loving others means not supporting sexism, racism, or other negative forms of inequality.
Religious, economic, and political control remains in the hands of males, partly because, in translating scripture into patriarchal languages such as English, the original Hebrew word of “side” (pronounced “TSELA”) "rib" was used instead of “equal side” or the "other half", creating a false male image of God for many, "Idolatry", and by using nouns such as “Father” with pronouns of “He” or “His”.
Also with a "parable story", of "Adam and Eve", to blame women, when the first and third Priestly official stories both say, male and female are created in God's Image.*
*Genesis 1:27 & 5:1.
God as Creator, includes the Mother as well as Father.
Jesus used the word “ABBA”, meaning literally our “Heavenly Parent”. AB=Dad, and BA=Mom, in the people’s language of Biblical times. With the exception of the womb, we each have the same number of ribs, bones, other organs, some outside, others inside! Both have male and female hormones, varying in amounts and with age.
The first human created in God’s Image, divided into two halves to physical reproduce, complement, and balance each other. Ideally as a family, where the The Holy Spirit is the Head, not just a human male or female! I John 4:16 speaks of God as being The Holy Spirit of Love, and when we love, we live in God and God lives in us.
Negative emotions such as anger, hate, revenge, can take us away from that kind of Love, hurting ourselves as well as others. When only one half of the whole rules over the other half, neither are likely to be satisfied or happy in that kind of a unfair, unequal relationship! Equal partners can confirm with each other and when not in agreement seek the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit within them, to find the best way to live in harmony and peace.
When we as a People, Community, or Nation, can get to that Equalitarian frame of mind, we will be able to live with one another in peace and prosperity, until then we face costly wars, one after another!
Jesus message was to Love One Another, even your enemies; to do good, not evil.
A God worthy of worship is a God of Love, in “Equality”. The only Word God gave me at my Spiritual “Rebirth”. I write because of seeing God’s Hand, after Hitler had been elected President to begin the second world war. Now, that same feeling of dread in our world is felt here again!

Do not financially support sexism, racism or other negative inequalities?
