Don’t Be So Mean!!!!

I frequently watch videos or see a picture on Facebook, and want more information regarding what I’m watching, so I scroll through the comments. Though I hope for the best, I am almost ALWAYS disappointed by what I see – rude, mean, belligerent, comments by people who obviously think they are the supreme authority on whatever the topic may be, whether it’s a recipe, a craft project, or some kid or pet-related thing that was intended to be funny or heartwarming in some way.
 
I don’t know why people these days think they have the right to be so incredibly vicious in the expression of their opinions, but honestly, it’s HORRIBLE! Heavy use of profanity embedded in the worst name-calling I’ve ever seen, and very often, I see suggestions that the person posting should do something detrimental to themselves.
 
WHY?! Why do people feel they are justified in treating their fellow man this way?! It’s absolutely awful how people talk to and treat one another these days, and I for one, am SICK TO DEATH of it! Just because you have an opinion about something or someone, doesn’t mean you have the right to treat them badly. STOP THE HATE! Make the world a better place!!! It all starts with YOU and ME!

Liberal vs. Conservative

I don’t know what disappoints me more – the lies that people come up with, or the sheer number of people who believe those lies.

Also…. the practical application of the term “liberal” is an oxymoron in our society.

The actual definition of Liberal is – “open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values. Concerned mainly with broadening a person’s general knowledge and experience, rather than with technical or professional training.”

Some of the most self-proclaimed “liberals” I’ve ever met, are also some of the most unbelievably militant beings of the face of the earth, who will yell at me and anyone else who opposes them because we disagree with their supposedly open-minded points of view.

The worst is when a conservative who happens to be a Christian, attempts to “agree to disagree” in an effort to prevent undue discord, and preserve the friendship. THAT’S when Christianity itself is attacked by the “liberal” and we (Christians) are all grouped into one category of insufferable judgmental jerks who deserve whatever bad thing happens to us, while the “liberals” attempt to force their incredibly militant policies on us.

I’m sure I’ll catch some flack for this, but if you are a “liberal” and you attempt to force your policies and your beliefs on me, while forcing your opinion of who gets to use what bathroom, who said what to whom, who grabbed whom, and why that’s somehow worse than someone who makes it their life mission to cause mayhem, death, and destruction to anyone who stands in their way, then you and I must agree to disagree.

If that means we can’t be friends then so be it, but that’s clearly your choice, not mine. As a conservative Christian, one thing I’ve learned is that sometimes you just have to love someone from a distance. Happy Thursday, and may you be ever blessed.

You Have Decisions To Make 

James 1:19-25

“Know this, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger: for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. Keep being obedient to the word, and not merely being hearers who deceive themselves. For if anyone hears the word but is not obedient to it, he is like a man who looks at himself in a mirror and studies himself carefully, and then goes off and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the one who looks at the perfect law of freedom and remains committed to it—thereby demonstrating that he is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of what that law requires—will be blessed in what he does.”
