is a dangerous creature, according to Lisa Kleypas. I couldn’t agree more. George Orwell once said, “If people cannot write well, they cannot think well, and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.” The media has been trying to do just that for years and I’ve finally had enough. In fact, I’ve decided I am going to be as UNpolitically correct as I can possibly be. When a NY mayor tells me my body belongs to him, I’m gonna beg to differ – mine belongs to God. Period. Always has, always will.
At many pivotal points in history the church was silent, including Roe vs Wade, and look what we have now. Society-sanctioned murder of babies. A British statesman once said, “evil prospers when good men do nothing,” so I refuse to back up or shut up – I’d rather light up – because I am nothing if not well-read and I refuse to passively allow evil to prosper. To not act IS to act. Philippians 2 verse 3 starts off telling us to do ‘nothing’ from selfish ambition or vain conceit. Well, there’s a novel idea. If I’m addressing the issue from a place of love, as far as I am concerned that ‘freedom of speech’ thing goes both ways. If people choose to push the Muslim agenda in the land of the free and the home of the brave, then I choose to remind people they are have an eternal soul and to choose wisely where they will live.
A friend once told me when he worshiped God that he was “having rapture practice”, because he was “going in the first load.” I realize personality comes into play here and there are introverts as well as extroverts, but a heart change should produce a life change on some level. I give you the freedom to be you but please do the same for me. I choose to believe America is not going to hell because there are God-lovers praying for the country they love. As long as I’m praying God is moving, and I’m believing for a turn-around. Are you?
