18. How about small c consistently compassionate.

 

Within every human heart is compassion, joy, love, peace,
wisdom, tolerance -- all of that.

We also have a built in brain-heart connection called
conscience -- to alert us when we are going in the wrong
direction.

This is the divinity inside of us, and it doesn't matter if you
call it God, or if you call it christ, or evolution, or Carol, or
Energy, or Mz, or Allah or allah or Oprah or science or magic.

It is what it is and it doesn't need a name. There is an
ocean of it. If Jesus lived, that's what he was into --
helping people of his time to discover the infinite compassion
within themselves.. NOT to become religious, dogmatic
or submissive; but to become free. Mohammed did
the same thing and so have others. Buddha et al.

The poster speaks of her own heart, and her own
understanding, and calls it small c christian -- and also
that it describes people who may be of any religious or not-
religious persuasion.

Your objection is just about semantics.. what she wrote
was not ridiculous at all.
small c consistently compassionate.
Or big C Caring.
