The Way Of Ignorance…By Wendell Berry

imagesA quote from Wendell Berry, from the book…”The Way Of Ignorance” Wendell is a scholar, Leading Ecologists, Poet, author of 2 novels, countless Essays, and many books on ecological, political and cultural sciences, and a farmer from Kentucky for 6 decades now, and a Christian of deep faith, But, he does however see the forest thru the trees in my view. This critique and overview certainly dosent reflect a stereotyping of all of Christendom by any means what so ever. Like I said, he is a man of great faith in God and the Gospels, and has dedicated his 80 plus years to making our land and the creatures in it a better place we can all live in. But he does however hone in on a very serious problem we here in the US and Europe have cultivated in our arrogants towards others outside our faith over the years…

Berry states,
“Anybody half awake these days will be aware that their are many Christians who are exceedingly confident their understanding of the Gospels, and who are exceedingly self confident in their understanding of themselves in their faith. They appear to know precisely the purposes of God, and they appear to be perfectly assured that they are now doing, and in every circumstance will continue to do, precisely God’s will as it applies specifically to themselves. They are confident, moreover, that God hates people whose faith differs from their own, and they are happy to concur in that hatred”… End of Quote,

I believe, some people realize this, unless, of-course they are a part of the dominant movement of shadows and cold winds that interact within this unloving, and in my view, un-Christian paradigm of judgment, discourse, and total perversion of the Gospels in the name of Ego, Greed, and the passion to own everything in sight, and to control all that can be controlled at any cost, that Wendell speaks of in all his writings. And this goes both for the Christian Community and the secular in my view. I’m hoping a like minded,(in terms of saving our planet and our children), interweaving of people from all faiths, and secular communities begin to come together to bring in a change from this polarization that has been the life blood of the very parasites that are killing our planet and our loved ones for years now, and begin to bring change…Thanks again for the ray of light Wendell…Peace
