We have treated our President with the utmost disgrace and then we have played the victim to every situation that arose. The hypocrisy of the riots on either side is appalling. I don't care if you like the President or don't like the President, We The People, have to set a better example.
And Christians! Where is your focus??? Honestly, I'm frustrated by your call to Christ and your easily distracted demeanor as you cut off the ear of everyone that doesn't believe as you do! Let's get back in the Word and see how we are supposed to behave as Christ followers. We are not called to fight against flesh and blood, so instead of fighting about the use of a mask, how about we pray for healing instead and allow people to choose their precautions without fear of condemnation.
I'm equally frustrated with our Social Media Big Tech giants who have determined they are the god's of the internet. With the exception of a few, I've dropped my social media platforms. I won't be conformed. I don't need followers, I need God. I also need to be an encourager, and I was called to do so without censorship. Now, if I break the law, then I do need to be held accountable by the Governmental laws that I'm under, but if I'm loosing my spirituality...then there's no point in any of this...eternity is a lot longer than this temporary life.
I am also censored by my employment. I am not to disclose my place of employment and my political affiliation. I'm not even certain I can share my employment and my faith in Christ, but again, I believe I'm called to respect my Government and honor Christ. So, that shall remain.
I also just want to touch on the cult like religions out there... yes, you are out there too, distorting the name of Christ. Christ is not a title to control. It doesn't give you a license to treat people with shame, hurt, control, biases, or give you some sort of badge of honor. A Christian is called to follow Christ. Make certain if you are going to be known by His name, you know how to discern the differences, because the Government is coming after you and religion is under scrutiny. Make sure your roots run deep and your faith runs deeper.
Let me make one more observation. Your race wars need to stop. You are all, and I mean ALL, creating an environment where your race believes it should be superior. I think we all recall from Hitler's failure that wasn't the answer. Can I give you a news flash? Just because we are created by God to be certain skin color doesn't mean we need to have pride or supremacy. Do better. We are equal, we need to maintain that in all regards. You matter, regardless of any race, religion, culture, creed, YOU MATTER. You were perfectly and wonderfully made by God to be the skin color and culture you are. YOU....MATTER!
I am certain my vent will not create my intention of reevaluating our thoughts on a whole. I am certain this particular post may never be read by anyone, ever. But what I am confident of, is that I stand for God's creation. You do too, represent HIM well.
