It's amazing to see the differences so-called Christians have when it comes to a matter of faith in what we believe when dealing with matters of God and the direction of the United States.
As Christian believers we associate ourselves with a basic understanding
of Jesus Christ as we attempt to live our lives as closely as possible
to the Holy Bible. Yet within Christianity there is so much hate and
misunderstanding about the different type of Christian denominations and
their associated traditions. This type of misunderstanding is an
undermining of everything we are trying to accomplish in a movement in
order to correct the mistakes of our government and leaders to put
America on the right path that is based on the principals of our
This type of behavior extends beyond the Christian faith and is active
and alive on a wide variety of social economic levels. Black, brown,
yellow, red, inner city, corporations, Middle East, Asian, Jewish,
Buddhist, etc. I think you get the point.
Today it seems so many of us are caught up in the latest hype of what
our political commentators and/or leaders are trying to convince an
entire population to believe on what is right and what is wrong versus
making decisions for ourselves based on the principals we say we want to
believe. But at the core of these so-called "good intentions" are a
large number of people living far from the moral principals they should,
and in many cases so am I.
American's are great at classifying people, especially people who are
different. For example, the entire Middle East society might be deemed
"evil" or "terrorists" because a certain percentage of the population is
radical. This type of classification is dangerous and is no different
than evangelical Christians calling Catholic's evil or non-Christians
because of whatever miscommunication they may have received and/or lack
of any type of education about being Catholic. This is hatred at its
finest yet it seems a large majority of American’s justify this type of
Do we really understand the problems and issues we face as a nation? Or
are we running around saying whatever it is that we have heard on the
nightly Fox News report without actually researching what is being
discussed on the tube without taking any action to learn more about the
subject on our own?
One day we might have a world leader show up on the global scene and
tell us all exactly what we want to hear as an era of peace is
proclaimed around the world. Yet, until a personal transformation
happens within us all there can never be long lasting peace. People
need to change themselves first versus always thinking someone else is
going to solve their problems and the issues of the world. The hardest
12 inches mankind will ever have to travel is from his mind into his
So ask yourself, what type of person of faith are you or not? Do you
label and judge others without ever knowing the facts about what you are
judging, criticizing, labeling, or saying? The world doesn't need any
more people on the sidelines barking out of their mouths their disgusts
at the world without taking any action.
Whether you are a believer or not in Jesus Christ, the commandment that
He told the world still holds true in a world of unbelievers which is,
"Love one another", and "Love thy neighbor".
How are you doing with this in your life? Perhaps instead of making Fox
News or whatever your source of religion that is sparking the
conviction of change you feel we all need to have right now to put
America back on track, why don't you start taking inventory of your life
and ask yourself, "How do I love myself" and better yet, "How do I love
my neighbor"? It’s time to become accountable as individuals.
The time is now to make the changes in our own individual lives. Only
when we do, if ever, will any meaningful change take place in the United
States, even as great as the Tea Party or third party movement may seem
to others as the real change needs to take place in our hearts and
If you are a Christian, no matter what denomination, perhaps today is
the day you start showing more tolerance and understanding to those who
also believe in Jesus Christ. The Muslim’s are pretty good at being one
voice, so when do the Christians finally start doing the same and get
If not now, then when?
