To Be or Not to Be – Which is Better?

Recent message board fodder takes aim at the debate over whether or not alums have higher standing as a fan…

I’m sure most schools have a similar debate…

Does someone who gave 4-5 years of their life, not to mention a good bit of money, mean more to the athletic department than someone who has never seen the inside of a classroom, but is a faithful donor, and may have given just as much money to the booster club…

Which group of people has more say? Should there be a separation?

The whole episode reminds of the debate about Jesus’ followers soon after his death…

There were some who claimed to have a higher standing among Christians because they saw Jesus and knew Jesus and maybe even hung out with him…

Jesus knew this would happen – we are all human – and this is what he said when talking with Thomas:

“Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

So, you tell me – which is better – to be have a love for a place where you have a history or to have the same love for a place you’ve never even visited?
