Living Spiritual Rhythms–October 14

A constant meme in some Christian circles is that without belief in God you’re not fully human. Not only is this arrogant, it’s also degrading. Perhaps, such a view is what tends to give license to Christians to treat others so poorly. We can be grateful, however, that images of God are images of God and therefore fully human, regardless of what they believe. This radical perspective calls us to “recognize” the other in due respect, worth, and dignity, and should have a profound influence on how we relate to God, ourselves, and humanity.
