I can barely stand scrolling through news media feeds and reading the hundreds and hundreds of comments validating someone's belief about who the best is.... To me, it's not only debilitating, but wrong. And I'm not the only one who thinks so.
Why do we spend so much time determining who is right among people? Sometimes it is certain agenda's such as whether we believe killing a fetus is taking a life. People are very passionate about this topic, as well as many others. and we fight for the outcome we believe is best suited for our children and our upcoming generations.
When we find hot topics, such as this...we need to be certain that we don't fuel the fire of our own agendas. We are not to lean on our own understanding, but are to search the scriptures and seek out God's direction on the matter. Instead, however, we have a belief system that we know what is best for our towns and communities.
It's also my understanding that this type of conflict will never cease until we each make a decision to follow Christ, or where we want to spend eternity. Even then, it becomes a daily sacrifice to make God choices. It has been this way since day one, throughout Noah, throughout Sodom and Gomorrah, throughout the history of the Bible, you will continually see a race, creed, religion, or gender fight for their own agendas. Satan knows as well as our flesh, that a house divided against itself can not stand. But Standing on God's Promises will always prevail.
I'm reminded of the scripture
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:28 NIV
If we could remember this scripture, we'd solve half of the worlds issues...
