I don’t think we should ever tire of justice. We should never stop doing what is right. Yes, sometimes it might become mainstream, or annoying, or twisted and perverted, but thank God it’s on our radar.
"... The kids I see and teach won’t remember the Women’s March, they will remember the election. And that has already started a chain reaction that I know will take a long time to stop."
Let me be clear. I am a Christian. I love and serve my Savior. I love my church. I am pro-life. I did not agree with everything that was said or every sign carried during the march. So why did I choose to take part in the Women’s March on Washington?
Making yourself the political party of an entire faith, even just a large subset of that faith, guarantees a lot of votes every year. And it makes it easy for Christians too. Just slide down the ballot and check everything with an “R” next to it.
I’m not going to carry on such divisiveness in my generation. I can’t change the world overnight by myself. But…sometimes all it takes is one person.
am thankful to those friends who challenged me, as I so often am. I am thankful to those who encouraged me to vote, even if it was only for the local elections, because those still matters and we still have a say. I am more thankful than words can express for a church and a pastor who did not tell me who to vote for or how to vote, but simply spoke truth where it mattered most.
In just a few short months, I believe we will witness history. Over the past year, we thought some candidates were joking about running for president. Then, a couple months went by and they were still there. Another couple of months, same story. Then, other candidates were dropping out of the race. All leading up to the publication of this post, when we have two people who have a shot at the White House who we previously thought couldn’t make it in through a security clearing for a simple tour.
"You might have heard the “love your neighbor” phrase a lot these days being tossed around, so much so that you might even be tired of hearing it proclaimed so shallow from your religious friends. You question their intentions and their true character when they say phrases such as this."
"John 3:16 is just as true for someone who is biologically male identifying as a woman as it is for the porn addict, the atheist, the child molester, the gossip, and the glutton. Jesus loves all and accepts all as is. On the other hand... Jesus loves His children too much to leave them as they are."
