My politcal view

February 13, 2011

Liberalism should not be a catch all any more than conservatism… it causes unnecessary division and confusion instead of Christ-like unity and reconciliation. It is like having two monkeys fighting over a banana only to mush it before it can be used. In Christ there is no liberal or conservative, no Jew or Gentile, no male or female, no slave or master… the wall of division came down with the Cross… the empowerment to give justice, mercy, life, freedom, forgiveness came at the Resurrection through the Life of Christ who lives in and through those who believe. To make such nonsense over who is right and who is wrong only proves the bible when it states “no one is right… not one” (paraphrased on purpose) and that all our rightness comes only through Jesus. If we believe this, compassion and love will never be confused as liberalism, but be seen as Christ in us our only hope.

That is my political view.

Philippians 2:4-5

March 24, 2010

Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.- Philippians 2:4-5

How does that verse fit into your political views?

New Constitutional Amendment

November 10, 2009
Proposed 28th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:
“Congress shall make no law that applies to any citizen of the United States that does not apply equally to all U.S. Senators and Representatives and Congress shall make no law that applies to any U.S. Senator or Representative that does not apply equally to all citizens of the United States. All existing laws and regulations that do not meet these criteria are herewith null and void.”
 Not sure who started this but I like it. Feel free to pass it along.

Maybe not a political joke… or is it?

October 24, 2009
I was walking past the mental hospital the other day, and all the patients were shouting, ’13….13….13.’

The fence was too high to see over, but I saw a little gap in the planks, so I looked through to see what was going on…..

Some idiot poked me in the eye with a stick!

Then they all started shouting ’14….14….14’…

Conversations between liberals and conservatives

October 2, 2009
This is how many conversations between liberals and conservatives seem to go. It seems also that often in discussion forums this is how it goes when discussing faith… or rather their doctrines. = )

What I think of Right Wing (and Left Wing) talk show hosts.

September 18, 2009
The issue to me about talk show hosts is when one bends the truth they bend their credibilty. So what if he is 95% right when the 5% is made up of lies? Does it make them less a liar. Most often they do not admit they lied or were mistaken. How refreshing it would be to hear Rush or Beck or someone say, “oops I made a mistake… I was wrong on this one.” It would get my attention. But most often the focus is how “right” they are… yet, the bible states clearly, “No one is righteous…” or as I say it, “no one is right.” The only Righteous (Right) one is Jesus… the rest of us are all flawed people who do and say stupid things. We need to seek out solutions and not continue in creating further polarization. Jesus called us to the ministry of reconciliation no the minsitry of division. Don’t get pulled into this worlds system… seek to find what God has for each of us to do and go out and love others as we are commanded to do.
