Now to be fair, “Occupiers”

with one comment

It is fair that this group does not represent your cause as a whole.

However, when you see this short video.

 

You will see the clowns on parade.

Now write this one down and play it back next time you feel high and mighty.

Won’t be standing so tall now, Mr. or Ms. Progressive, will you?

 

 

Love,

Are your politics your witness?

I think we all like to feel somehow as righteous. I think we, as humans, like to feel we win.  Christians, we  push people away with politics.

My opinion of the real reason is that there is no right answer. None.

Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism it’s just the opposite.- John Kenneth Galbraith

The politics of man are so polluted with envy, despair, pride, anger, and negative emotion. Our smug feeling of

  •  I’m right, you are wrong.
  • You must not be a Christian if you are a ___________ .
  • You must not understand scripture if you think ___________.
  • You must be stupid or evil if you think _____________ .

These feelings and statements do NOT bring persons to Christ.

They are not Christ like.  Your politics are not Christ’s teachings.

Because, they are not true. There is always grey in your black and white. They are of man. Not of God. And why do you think I say this?

Because they cause strife and separation within the children of God.

The souls we miss and the lives not touched by Christ through our pride. We will answer. I will answer.

Can we answer for less? Do the lost deserve more? Do we?

@Selaniest Jeff. You should unfollow me now if that post offends you or you’re taking it personal.

@JesusNeedsNewPR Nope, it’s me calling you out for crapping on other christians.

This is the short story of how I, the mere little @selenist  a person to the point of being ( I believe ) BLOCKED

Ok Some my buddy up there wanted to make a crack about some rather eccentric fellows.  “Goofy little production, ”  I say to myself.  Until I look further… Just a couple clicks and I find this!

Ok so I don’t have over 39,000 followers and probably never will.  And I bet the world will end in May before I ever have a book (  Hey!  There’s a chance! ) But, is this kind of cutesy ridicule how we treat our Christian brothers?  And if you are an author, would you not take that extra 10 seconds to say ” Oh snap!  these guys are spreading the word! ”

Here’s what you get.  Dismissed and ignored.  So I ask you, is this how we should be?  I think not.  As a matter of fact, I think far from it.

And let me say, I want no blog war.  I will surely lose.  But my thoughts.
