    I tried to get to know this man.. what his life really meant..
    They say that he was black.. they say he was heaven sent...

    With wooly hair.. the kind I like
    The kind I can't get my fingers thru.. the kind I braid up really tight...

    They say that Jesus hung with prostitutes..
    Mary Magdolynn...

    They say he walked with the sinners..
    To try to make them turn from the life of sin..

    They say when I pass by the hungry and help..
    How do I know I'm not helping him..

    In other words... when I help another..
    I'm showing the love I have within...

    What good is it to give me a fish..
    You can teach me how to fish...

    Ya, I'm scared of devil's too..
    I mean Judas betrayed with a kiss...

    Cain he slew his brother.... even tho he was his blood...
    Even family can be the enemy and act out of something other than love..

    Eve was Adam's wife... sometimes chicks can be a disease...
    But remember Adam had the ability to not take the Apple from she..

    Delila... was the Superhead of the biblical year..
    Cause Sampson thought she loved him.. but she really didn't care...

    Ponchas knew.. to lynch Jesus was wrong yet he only washed his hands..
    He had the power to stop it... but it was more important he remain "the man"

    Satin was most beautiful... but that was never enough...
    From the beginning of time... all I'm saying is they try to divide all of us...

    So whom should I fear...
    So whom should I trust...

    I can really say I don't know.....
    All I know is that if there is a heaven... that's where I wanna go.

    Hey Lady
    I was reading your scribe
    and I've read it several times
    trying to feel your point.

    He die for our sins.
    Born from the womb of woman
    in order to walk this earth in the shell
    of a man. We are only shells.
    He gave US as a people a visual form
    of the spirit, so we (the confuse people) could better
    understand what it is Our Heavenly Father
    expects of his children.
    When the prostitute and other walked with him
    And he didn't turn them away
    It is because he was teaching US how to LOVE
    And forgive.
    And when he gave US the fish he was teaching US
    about the LOVE of Our Father for his children.
    So none should ever be hungry. I could really go on on
    his LOVE of US was and still is
    uncondtional LOVE
    He LOVED US so much that he die for the
    sins of US the children.
    We are only shells here on borrow time trying to get it right,
    the soul is eternal.

    Some gets it and some don't

    What I meant was that... Jesus who was righteous.. spent his time trying to help those who needed him...

    he walked with them everyday...

    then some of the points just lil things i think about..

    adam and eve.. free will power to choose...
    sampson and delilia... good man not so good woman
    cain and able... manye, family can hurt you sometimes

    give me a fish.. teach me to fish.. Jesus taught... by example... by being there... by being bout it... not just saying it... he could snapped his finger and made the meal.. but it means so much more to sit and share the meal...

    ponchas pilot.... and i can't quote the scripture but i can sum it up.. i know ur a righteous man but they wanna kill you.. i wash my hands of the responsibility... a.k.a. accountability.....

    they say if i feed you.. i am helping him... just meant any good act done in the name of good does not go unblessed regardless .. like when the woman.. (again summarizes).. that gave a penny and ever'bdy clown'd her... but that was all she had which is what made in itself blessed...

    My mind .. I just question everything.... years of Sunday School....

    Years of Sunday school, years of programming, years of conditioning...maybe you need to ask yourself the question of "WHY" to that instead?

    I do... and then they say i'm blashpeming.... but I'm not... just tryin to make sense otta things when what is being said and what i c is not the same....

    then the answer always is ... "it's inside of you".......

    what makes sense to me.. this is only my opinion...

    really spirituality vs. religion...

    spirituality I think is what makes u a good person....

    religion is a set of laws.. man made laws.. that u choice to follow in ur quest to be a good person.......

    yes, spiritual I want to be.. to have a pure heart and mind.. religious I'm not that certain.......

    cause i ain't turning the otha cheek.. so i can be smack'd in the otha..

    i'm not givin 10% to the preacher because he ain't using it for charity.. but i do beleive in charity...

    religion is big business, and that's too bad....

    spirituality tho.. good thing... I think...

    again these are just things that I think about.... not a criticizm or anything... I also beleive that religion is a matter of choice, and i ain't knocking anyone that feels they are doin something to be the best possible person that they can be........

    Many were taught that questioning is wrong. But of course we'll have questions about someone we have never seen, about events we haven't witnessed. That's where faith come in. Keep those flows coming.

    I like the word "choice"...cause as children we were never given that, simply the conditioning that we as adults were somehow magically suppose to break.

    and i ain't knocking anyone that feels they are doin something to be the best possible person that they can be........

    And I ain't knocking anyone who feels, but I can respect those who "think" much better.
