What Are We Weighting For?
At the beginning of the Holy Bible, when God created heaven and earth for six days and rested on the seventh day, “ even now, my friends read this section with some confusion and dismay.”
After years of being a Roman Catholic, discussing the issue of Sabbath Day among Roman Catholics remain to make conflicting choices about whether and how to follow the commandment, weight the consequences for the choice, and often provide little or no rationale for the choice. In private discussions with laissez-faire friends, they admit to own up to confusion or declare faulty reasons for their weighting choices.
Just how do we weigh or estimate our religiosity? It seems that some things are as confusing as the act of weighing our roles as Catholics. Maybe, I am confounded myself – and I have to be clarified with issues surrounding weighting. I am sure, most of our confusion stems from a lack of clarity about which among our potential motives for making choices matter most.
If I specify that my reason for not attending church masses is that I do not believe in public display nor some priests’ lifestyles has ceased to inspire me – this becomes a straightforward justification whether my purpose for weighting “salvation” does apply. Or, is weighing necessary at all? Or shall weighing make Catholics more “religious” than others? Now, I am getting more bewildered and in these cases, the weighting issue becomes more nuanced. Do not forget though, that “faith is a gift.”
