::Isn’t spirituality supposed to be about humility and not feeling superior?::

It would explain a lot why in stories of past mystics, they tend to sideline the religious lot and spend more time mingling with the common man.
To be fair, i think the truly humble ones have lost a sense of discrimination (even the meaning of humility), and how hard would that be considering it is a human condition?!
what a paradox, too, that we are at the 'top of the creation' because of our ability to discriminate.

-ben.

You know what these type of Christians will be saying when The Big One hits San Francisco!

very very useful massages

I find massages useful, too. Especially after sitting at the computer all day. ;P

Isn’t spirituality supposed to be about humility and not feeling superior? I’ve always thought so, but maybe I missed a memo from God.


I have always wondered why the head of the RSSB faith allows some things to remain in print. He teaches humility, and I would consider him to be quite humble, but the books he publishes encourage RSSB disciple to consider themselves to be the elite and special chosen ones of God. I have personally heard him talk about how all are equal in the sight of God, and that God could care less what our belief system might be. I have read other passages besides what you quoted in the children's book that bother me. I have no explanation why they are there unless the book publishing department likes to believe these things about themselves. Nothing like having editorial power over holy books.
