The paper "The Gospels on Our Everyday Life " is a brilliant example of an essay on religion and theology. Every story in the gospels has a moral point that could help us evaluate our own actions. Individuals need to be encouraged to look for those morals instead of being made dependent upon theological interpretations that often serve the interest of the Church over the interest of Almighty God. The gospels were written by people who were inspired by God. These people were followers and disciples of Jesus himself, who taught them and moved them to proclaim the Word to the rest of the world.
These gospels were meant to guide us, teach us, rebuke us, and comfort us whenever we need such. The Word of God is often misunderstood and taken out of context, but it was made to help and change the hearts of men and bring them back to God. The gospels of Jesus Christ can be summed up in his one glorious command; that is, TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS HE LOVED US. It is a simple command that the average human can understand much more than a complicated and gruesome blood sacrifice which is rooted in a complex theology that even the most brilliant of theologians cannot agree upon.
The message of God as delivered in the inspiration given in the gospel of Jesus is not complicated and was never meant to be. Jesus kingdom of God is not a complex church; it is the kingdom of responsible love which the pages of the gospels proclaim so loudly. This needs to be the central focus of a responsible religion which can enhance our world in the 21st Century.
A responsible theology will keep its focus in the simplicity of the infant Jesus, for that is the true basis for a human relationship with the Divine.
