First of all, before I'm viewed as having a side in the political spectrum, I'd like to say that I have no side. I enjoy thinking that I'm on God's side. That I can give to Caesar what is Caesar's, but know that I give to God what is God's. That there is no "King" other then the one who harbors a burning heart for all God's children, Jews and Gentiles alike (also known as Humanity).
Any party that says it is O.K to perform acts of violence against another human being, to myself, is an immediate sign of a "non-believing" group, that shucks whatever God may have said about loving your enemy and non-violence, forgetting that God has the power to move hearts harder then mountains through love and compassion, and instead chooses the road of pain and suffering. Assuming, at best, the role of an archangel (and that's if they even truly believe in the purpose of their actions, violent or not). Regardless, God would not approve, and the most scholarly of scholars could not find a way to convince me otherwise. 1+1 will never equal 3.
That being said, it should be apparent I'm not against any one person or party. Instead, I'm someone who enjoys observing and reporting truths. And like humanity, I am not perfect, but I'm also not blind, and can see where I go wrong. Which may not be all that is required of me, but it's certainly the right path.
But this does not stop our politicians (or citizens) from from preaching the lamb, but playing the wolf. Which brings me to the subject matter of having the phrase "Right to Life" as being a talking point from our political pulpits. It seems to me, from my vantage point, that those who preach this phrase, don't agree that this goes for every human being, from fetus to old age. Let me try and put this in perspective, if I can.
Lets say there is a fetus, and the mother wants to end its life. Right to Life says, "No!, the fetus is an Innocent human being that can't decide on it's own if it wants to live or not. It would be a crime against God and humanity to do such a thing. And to think otherwise shows that you are not a true believer in God and Christ, but rather a Godless soul." Now, lets say this child was spared the hook, and the mother had a change of heart due to all the preachings of the baby having a right to live. We go further in time, and this child is now an adult. But something went wrong down the road of life, and the child developed into a criminal. Such a bad criminal, that the same people who begged for his life in the womb, now beg for his death in a chair. And in that chair, with the electricity charging, onlooking Right to Lifers say out loud, "This was a bad seed. Never was this human being Innocent. He was just born that way, and there's no way to change such a soul. It would have been better if they were never born.".
Does anyone else out there hear what I'm saying? Has anyone else heard or felt such contradictions of today's "true believer". Such true believers vote for politicians solely based on one or two of the politicians religious beliefs, but then forget that these same politicians could care less about what Christ really expressed in His life and death. Or does the voter not really care either? They probably care more about what their priest talks about in church (which certainly isn't going to be about loving enemies, and non-violence, or fidelity with the eyes for that matter, because then they would have no congregation to preach to. Everyone would probably leave, thinking that they weren't even hearing God's Word anymore.).
Any time I hear someone in politics talk about their religious beliefs, I'd rather not hear it. I'm not a vegetarian, but if I was, I certainly wouldn't make my living as a butcher.
Needless to say, I probably will exercise my right to not vote again in whatever election may come up, unless Jesus himself comes back and runs for office. And I look forward to those who may think that this is dumb, or whatnot, because this country and its politics are so much better then other places. And without all our wars, we wouldn't be free, and yada, yada, same 'ole talking points from the same 'ole empty mouths. Do you think Jesus would vote after all things being said? And would people tell Him he should just leave if he doesn't like how things have been done till now? And where then could He go if he wanted to truly vote for a real leader? If you know the answer to that last question, then I think we should all get up, move there, and go vote for that person, because until then, we will live in a land that does not speak truths, but bends some and omits others to thier own will and benefit, not Gods.
Thanks for your time, and I hope if you read this spot of writing, that it stirs something up inside, whether its agreeable or not.
