Why I Post…
At times, I make posts that deal with politics. In the past, I did it more frequently but, I backed off some. Now, I try not to post unless something happens that really concerns me.
There was a time when I was pretty conservative in my political views. But, I admit, I’ve changed over time. I see things a little differently today than I did in the past. I am more moderate today.
Someone may ask, “why did you change?”
I think I’ve always believed as I do now but I was young and wanted to please everyone so I didn’t always express my views.
I am a Christian…
I am a political moderate…
I believe that with the internet and social media, most anything can be “spun” in a manner to make it say what a person or an organization wants it to say. I don’t buy all the spin. I definitely don’t buy all the political intent on the web. I read some of it but I discard most of it.
I am pro-life with the exception of the mother’s life being in danger, rape or incest.
I believe God loves us all and I want to minister to everyone… whites, blacks, gays, lesbians, transgender…. I will love and try to minister to anyone.
I don’t agree with everything in our world but I’m going to try to love people just like I think Jesus would.
I see lots of information about politics today. And honestly, the hatred in our society really, really bothers me. I cease to believe that we can’t all try to get along. Your views may be different from mine, but that doesn’t mean we can’t agree to disagree and love one another.
I have honestly not posted as much recently as I had. But, when something happens that really troubles me, I post. And when I post it’s because, honestly, I feel I must speak up.
Years ago, Edward Everett Hale said, “I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything; but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
I try to deal with facts not hearsay… I don’t agree with everything either political party says or does. I’m not a Republican or a blue-dog Democrat. I’m a Christian and I try (although I definitely fail) to follow the teachings of Jesus.
That is why I post. I am only one… but when something troubles me and I feel led, I post…
