We've seen so much personal, uncultivated opinion spewed all over every outlet of media, fueled by the ignorant and uneducated. Yes, you might have finished high school, or even college, but you can still prove yourself uneducated, simply by commenting on ANYTHING, you've never taken the time to research. There are a lot of things I choose not to comment on or even respond to, because I haven't taken time to do any research.......partly due to the fact that arguing with a fool would prove me a fool. Yet, I can and will always speak on my personal experiences, in this life, in this country. Today, I want to make a very plain and simple point. I hope this strikes a chord in the hearts of everyone who allows their eyes to see it, and this does not require a degree or any extensive level of learning to grasp.
The scripture above, comes from the Book of Matthew, chapter 22, verses 37 through 40. According to Jesus, our Lord and Savior, whom you all claim to Love, Serve, and Believe in, THESE TWO commandments sum up the whole duty of mankind. READ THEM NOW!! Read them at least three times, aloud to yourself. Now, close your eyes to imagine what that looks like; to love ALL as you love yourself; to love God with everything about you; to love unconditionally. Open your eyes and look at our country, the great America, also known as a world super power. Can you honestly say that this country, our government, and YOU live by the commands of our God?
Now, examine your hearts and minds. Scrutinize every opinion you've posted online, expressed in your break rooms, ranted about with your kinfolk, and grumbled over in your own chest. Does any of it line up with anything God has shared with us, and given to us, in Christ Jesus? BE HONEST WITH YOURSELVES! If one finds no value or conviction in the Word of God (Jesus Christ), then he/she neither knows Him, nor loves Him.
"If someone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?" -1 John 4:20-
