|My dog, Roscoe...aka Rocco|
Are you like me and there are times, for no apparent reason, a thought will pop into your head? I mean, the kind of thoughts that make you look bad in front of God…and all you can do is say, “God forgive me for those thoughts that I didn’t think through before thinking them.” (If you’re not confused, you are one of us…the melancholy temperaments folk. I am melancholy compulsive, if you happen to know much about temperaments.)
And then there’s my mouth. How many times I have to ask God to overlook my words. There are times I don’t even think about not saying those things, especially if someone has made me mad. Ashamedly, I admit there are times when a good thought sneaks in and says “Shut up!” I usually ignore such a thought.
I know God forgives, repeatedly, thankfully. Do you ever wonder if He gets really weary with our behavior? Surely He must! How many times can we ask forgiveness for the same thing before it gets on His holy nerve? And you know He’s got one, He’d have to! At some point He expects us to change. I don’t like to think about my being on God’s one good nerve because I don’t change my ways.
I have a really hard time with change. If I didn’t, I’d be skinny. And healthy. And I wouldn’t say things I shouldn’t nearly as much as I do. Speaking of being skinny…well, I’m not. But I did start a diet on Monday. It lasted until around 2 p.m. Eating is so much more fun than dieting.
I’d like to ask your opinion. There is a young woman who has a “ministry.” That is, she has a blog, a Facebook page with over 3,000 followers, and a book deal. She professes to be a Christian, but twists scripture to fit her agenda. She publicly chastises other Christian writers (specifically one who wrote about voting for Donald Trump), claims to be pro-life (while praising Hillary and Michelle Obama) but says Government shouldn't tell a woman "what to do with her body." She deletes the comments of those who disagree with her, and seems to particularly hate men, especially men in authority. Here’s my question: If I link her blog, post screen shots of her Facebook page, and write a rebuttal, would I be judging her, or would I be doing the right thing by exposing the deception (which is rampant and growing every day)? Feel free to comment after voting...I'd like to hear your opinion.
Don't worry, I can't tell who cast which vote.
