Define, "Hypocrisy."

Over the years, I have been blessed to work with a variety of ages in faith-based settings.  From preschoolers to senior adults and everything in between, I am an experienced Bible teacher. I am not sharing this information to brag. I believe knowing this information may help you understand the leap of faith I am about to take.

I believe I’ve been good (for the most part) this political season. I haven’t been great. I’ve let my mouth run a few times, but all in all I’ve done okay.

With that said, please allow me to clarify something: If you are African American and choose to boycott the Academy Awards feeling there isn’t fair representation of your art, you are called a “whiney baby.”  However, if you are a rich, white guy who owns a powerful empire and choose to boycott a debate believing a woman will be unfair and bias in her questions for you – that’s called “standing on principles?” You are kidding, right? 

Is that how it works? Really? Just checking because I think that’s probably the most UNChristian thing I have ever been exposed to in all my years of mixing and mingling with the young and old; timid and bold; heavy or thin; rich and poor.

“All in all,” I like that statement. Here it is used in Biblical terms:

Colossian 3:11, “Here <in Christ> there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian or Scythian <founded a rich, powerful empire>, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.”

Feel free to boycott me.
