Christians: Keep election debate civil!

Wow, the debate is getting intense!
Emotions run high.
They are even using terms like traitor and anti-christ.

My suggestion: Step back a second and think about what you are doing.
Are you spreading the Good News of the loving kindness of an all powerful God?
Or, perhaps you are spreading fear and hatred, generating chaos and suspicion?
Isn’t the latter playing right into the hands of any real or imagined anti-Christ?

One filled with hate is like an old garbage truck.
They stink, and you can hear the clatter from blocks away.
You don’t want to spread fear and loathing.
This type of fear monger can be found hunkered down in
a bunker somewhere counting his ammo, and wracked with fear.

One filled with the Grace of God knows the almighty power of faith
in the protective and loving nature of our Creator.
These messengers stand on the hilltop, in the sunshine, proclaiming
the Power of God, the brotherhood of man, and the fatherhood of
God.

So which army do you want to join?

  2. Amen! That is perfectly correct, I agree wholeheartedly! Thank you, for being someone civil, for once! – Wesley Wallace
