Amazing Grace

Last week, Wednesday, 26th November 2008, I and some of my bible study friends watched together the Amazing Grace movie. Actually we took the bible study time and counted it as another form of studying πŸ™‚ After returning back to the flat, I found the Amazing Grace song by Il Divo below. This version of Amazing Grace is pretty good in my opinion.

Il Divo – Amazing Grace (click here to watch it directly from Youtube)

The Amazing Grace movie is based on a real story of Mr. Wilberforce struggling to end the slave trade in the British Empire. The movie shows how religious beliefs can be instantiated in real life inΒ  the form of real actions for the good sake of humankind.

In my opinion, religions are present and meant to be instantiated in real actions in the world for the good sake of humankind, not only as rituals. And this is the hardest part I guess. Doing rituals are much easier than doing good πŸ™‚ In my opinion religions are just guidelines for doing good. And it’s a bit too selfish for any religion to claim the only way to reach eternity (for those who believe). Don’t forget humans existed long time before today’s religions were introduced πŸ™‚

    @Adhiguna Mahendra:

    Halo mas Adhi,

    Iya Greece bagus, terutama situs2 arkeologinya (terutama temple2-nya).
    Public transport jauh lebih murah dibanding di Jerman, penginapan di hostel di tengah kota relatif mirip2 sama di Jerman & Italia.
    Cuma untuk masuk situs2 arkeologi, kalau ada student card yang masih berlaku (universitas di EU), gratis πŸ™‚

    Btw, postingan ttg Greece yg sebelum ini mas πŸ˜€ Tp ga masalah kok.. hehe…. Thanks udah berkunjung.

    all the best,
