Revolutionaries 3 of 4 by spicemaster Revolutionaries 3 of 4 by spicemaster
Revolutionary- A fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something : a change of paradigm.

Mahatma Gandhi-

Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most respected leaders of modern history. A Hindu, Gandhi nevertheless admired Jesus and often quoted from the Sermon on the Mount. Once when the missionary E. Stanley Jones met with Gandhi he asked him, Mr. Gandhi, though you quote the words of Christ often, why is that you appear to so adamantly reject becoming his follower?

Gandhi replied, Oh, I dont reject your Christ. I love your Christ. Its just that so many of you Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Gandhi may truly be said to be the prophetic voice of the twentieth century. Violence inflicts upon its practitioners physical and spiritual wounds; the way of non-violence, said Gandhi, "blesses him who uses it and him against whom it is used. "Again, "non-violence is the law of our species as violence is the law of the brute. The spirit lies dormant in the brute and he knows no law but that of physical might. The dignity of man requires obedience to a higher law -- to the strength of the spirit

A practitioner of the non-violent way of life, far from being passive, is the most active person in the world. He is ready to join the fray -non-violently -- wherever and whenever there is injustice or wrong. He neither tolerates nor compromises with injustice, wrong, tyranny, authoritarianism, totalitarianism, dictatorship. His task in life is not to destroy the evildoer but to redeem and to convert the evildoer by love. " 'With malice toward none, with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right," he is ever ready to "bind up" humanity's "wounds," to minister to the underprivileged and to the misguided.

Use truth as your anvil, nonviolence as your hammer and anything that does not stand the test when it is brought to the anvil of truth and hammered with nonviolence, reject it.

I also noticed that you have "love" in red and in reverse in respect to the word "Revolutionary". That's quite clever! :D

In regards to Christ, Gandhi almost got it, and sadly he almost got it more than most "Christians" do.

I don't know what was in his heart, especially toward the end of his life. I only know what happens between God and me. :)

If I'm right that Gandhi did not view Jesus as his savior, then I'm certainly worried about his destination.
