Philosophy of life
Looking briefly both at the philosophy of life but especially at the mentality practiced in today’s Christianity, we easily notice the large discrepancy between what is declared and what is practiced in the so-called life of faith.
What makes me question this statement? Well, that strange habit by which we cyclically transform our way of being according to our own interests, going through diametrically opposed spiritual states but which feed our pride abundantly.
Somehow, as time went on, I gradually learned the cynical dance of spiritual duplicitism through which we always step back and forth from weekend ‘piety’ and ‘humility’ (displayed by characteristic pompous outfits – both attire and attitude) to behaviors. liberals during the week; or rather ‘in trend’.
