"Esa violencia no es la de la espada,
la del odio.
Es la violencia del amor,
la de la fraternidad,
la que quiere convertir las armas
en hoces para el trabajo."
"This violence is not of the sword,
nor is it of hate.
It is the violence of love,
it is the love of brotherhood (community),
It's the love that wants to turn weapons
into sickles for work."

Then he said to them all:
“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross DAILY and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will LOSE it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it."
- Jesus, the Liberating King.
Jesus tells us that we have to die to ourselves to really be alive. Because the problem lies within humanity. But God loves humanity because he created humanity. He doesn't want us to do things for Him. He WANTS us. That is it. He wants to be loved. Just like we want to be loved. Each human being is an image bearer of God. We are able to do that if we die to everything we think we are, deserve, have, or don't have here on earth. Because of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection we are able to be pure and acceptable in God's sight and strive to love Him who loved us first.
I like this song. Great musicians created it. They bear the image of God. They may not believe in Jesus but this song speaks to me. I try not to limit God. If he can use donkeys and me as a messenger of His truth, why wouldn't He be able to reveal truth to me through this song?
if you want to want to be alive"
