World View

There is a problem with the premise
that the original sin is passed
to everyone who ever lived.
Even though millennia have passed,
an angry god seeks retribution
and still holds a young earth grudge.

The problem of the premise
is that that blood is required
to appease this feuding god.
The worst of ancient religion's practice,
shunned by civilization,
is worshiped by faith communities.

The problem is in the premise
that genocide is the answer
to build utopian societies.
Yet billions hold out for the end of days
and god's torturous massacre to
bring a new heaven and earth.

The problem throughout this premise,
is that this god is not better
than the best of us.
the worst of mankind breeds
blood-lust, torture and genocide.
a god should be greater than, not less than.

There is a promise with a new premise,
not about bloody retribution,
but individual and societal recalibration
to align with ancient future ideals
of peace that compounds
and love that surrounds.

The promise of this premise
is that peace is not waiting,
but active in the actions of those who
live out justice by leveraging peace
and work out this premise by mentoring love
as their legacy for this world's future.

The promise in this premise,
is that together we can
reclaim the world to what it could be and
recalibrate society to how it should be;
reclaiming peace, restoring justice
and redeeming everything through love.

The promise through this premise
is that as others have,
I can live in self changing peace
and live out world changing love,
nurturing justice through my commitment
to walk this path and redeem this world.
