What's Going On?
We've just ended a week that has had more changes happen to our nation than any other single week in American history. I'm not one to normally discuss these topics but I'm flabbergasted here.
First the Confederate Flag was banned.
Okay, really, this should have happened at the end of the Civil War to show that we were actually the United States. The fact that it was allowed for exactly 150 years is beyond me.
I'll admit, I'm a white Yankee chick. The Confederate Flag was never offensive in my eyes. It didn't signify anything degrading to blacks, I always saw it as a white-trash redneck symbol. So do what you will with that.
There's now talk about banning the movie Gone with the Wind. Now, I never particularly liked that film, but to ban a movie about an era in history that happened? What's next? Banning every movie that had a Mammie in it? Or black servants?
Grow up, people. Get over yourselves. Be happy that you live now and make the most of today.
Second, Obamacare was upheld. So now I pay more for insurance so that the people down the street who don't and won't work can get the same type of care that I do.
Can I please have a picture of this family that I support by working hard, I'd like to hang it on my fridge.
Third, well, we all know what was third. And if you dare say anything against it you are judgmental, and hateful, and a hypocrite.
My friend shared these words on Facebook and I agree with her:
"Next time someone accuses me of being narrow-minded, judgmental, or bigoted, here's my answer: I'm not judging you, I'm warning you (or our nation) that you have already been judged. I'm warning you because I care enough to let you know what God's word has to say. If you don't care what God thinks, that is your right as a free-willed human being (by the way, God granted you that free will, not the Constitution!) You are free to choose, but you aren't free of the consequences of your choice. I simply care enough to make you aware.
John 3:18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God." - PWJ
But you know what? Though this is happening at warp-speed, we shouldn't be alarmed or afraid. It is happening the way the Bible said it would.
