Convinced or Conviction

What is evidence?
Is there not a difference
between what convinces
each of us
regarding truth?

Why should a dimensionless God
constrain himself
to dimensions which I can observe
which I can comprehend?
Would I really be convinced?
Would I really be forever changed?
Would my faith grow
or would I require more

Acts 2

The flaming Holy Spirit
is but a glowing ember
in my soul today...
but not extinguished.
It awaits a breeze
a blowing wind
my own internal Pentecost
my own collision
with ignition
my own collision
of dark soul carbon
pure God-breathed oxygen
and spiritually passionate heat.
From somewhere far within
I hear a faint sound
that maybe, just maybe
is God taking in
a long, deep breath.

Why is it that so many of my fellow Christians want the government to stay out of the religious realm of charity and caring for the poor (because big government is anti-God...), YET want the government to be dominant in denying equal rights based on our religious views?

Seems like hypocrisy to me. Thoughts?
