The Search for Truth

I received a text and a few messages on Facebook yesterday asking me if I was okay because I am “awfully quiet.” Since I am known as a transparent person, I am going to be transparent. I remain in shock about what I see and read on Facebook. My main issue is the hatefulness and willingness to spread whatever we want to believe whether it is true or fair. I’ve spent a lot of time in prayer and talking with very wise friends. I am ready to share my observations:

Someone said to me the other day that I judge people. Let me make one thing perfectly clear, I don’t judge people. I do examine their fruit (Matthew 7:14-18) – what does their life say about them?

In Texas, we don’t want the government in our gun cabinets, but we do want the government in a woman’s uterus.

The people who gripe the most about the “Liberal media” are more than willing to take a head-first dive into the “angry-channel-with-an-angry-agenda” media.

We form our opinion of Hillary Clinton based on what the news or our friends tell us, but we don’t assess Donald Trump by the things coming from his own mouth.

Most of us complaining about Black Lives Matter have absolutely 0 black friends as Facebook friends or as friends in real life.

When it comes to politics, most of us do not believe in moderation, tolerance or an independent voice. We look at cooperation as a sign of weakness.

The majority of people lamenting over the Millennials leaving the church are the very reason the Millennials want nothing to do with church.

We relate spiritual condition with church membership and church attendance. God doesn’t.

You are allowed free speech. You get to say what you want to say, pray how you want to pray, and post what you want to post.  Guess what? Every American has the same right.

If the next generation favors Socialism, we are going to have to let them speak and live with their decision.

It’s okay to get off of Facebook until the election is over, but I guarantee ½ of all Americans are still not going to be happy the day after the election is held. Facebook will prove me right.

Your feedback is encouraged and welcomed. However, if you reply, I may or may not respond back. I’ve learned from Donald Trump that keeping my mouth shut is often the best answer.

Nobody’s perfect, but we could at least try to be nice. Thank you.
