A couple weeks ago, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin expressed a controversial opinion in regards to the preservation of Christianity in light of Hillary Clinton’s potential presidency.
“Whose blood will be shed?” Bevin said. “It may be that of those in this room. It might be that of our children and grandchildren. I have nine children. It breaks my heart to think that it might be their blood that is needed to redeem something, to reclaim something, that we through our apathy and our indifference have given away.”
Despite his pompous assertion that redemption is something people are responsible (Christian blasphemy, for certain) for, he is stating a desire that many so-called “Christian” Conservative Republicans have been harboring in their hearts. Having little or no faith in the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the ONLY redeemer of sin noted in the Holy Bible, they want to nudge things along the path towards Hell on Earth and their Heavenly Ascension where they plan to be seated at the right hand of God.
Ummm, yeah…good luck with that.
Yes, things are looking pretty bleak around the US and elsewhere in the world. Yes, we may be heading towards the second civil war on American soil. But the “Christ Posers” are wrong about how and why the situation is getting so bad around here. If you look back in biblical history, you will find that mankind has always courted disasters of their own making, and has always felt empowered by a sense of religious zealotry. Time after time, their foolishness cost them everything. Why would now be any different?
I can almost hear “God” chewing them out,
“Why don’t you ever learn? I simplified it down to ONE SINGLE COMMANDMENT, to love me and your own humankind, and yet you STILL DON’T GET IT!”
I don’t believe it’s too late for our human race and in spite of the evil being spewed by false prophets, I will continue to faithfully work towards a better future for all. Unlike the haters, I have learned a thing or two about following The Way of Jesus:
God loves EVERYONE EQUALLY.
It’s better to convey a sense of caring rather than presenting a self-righteous attitude.
Sometimes, it IS important to express your opinion (respectfully).
Somebody is always going to be wrong, including me, so I’m not afraid to listen to alternative views, admit my mistakes and change my ways.
It all comes down to OUR MOTIVE.
God is the only one in control – deal with it!
