San Sebastian Church and What's Real

san sebastian churchI do not frequent churches, as I am not really religious, but I do appreciate fine architecture and artistic creations. And for some reason, churches and places of worship are usually beautified and extremely well-kept. The Basilica of San Sebastian, or better known as the San Sebastian Church, is no exception.

Why is it that churches and places of worship are oftentimes cleaner and kept in far better condition than our own Mother Earth? I have no idea. We do not live in churches, so why does it deserve special treatment? We do not even know for sure whether the icons, deities, and religions they are built for even exist or are valid.

But our Earth is real--the land, plants, rivers, oceans, and streams are all real. These necessities for life are very real. So, if you can devote the time, money, and effort to erect such immaculate churches and to worship things and ideas that may not be valid or even exist, then I suggest you spend as much time, money, and effort (or even more) on something that is unquestionably real--our environment and home.

the purpose for this one is to preserve not only the spirituality of the people but also keeping the place clean. You know Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
