What Are we Doing?

I hate Obama, I hate Romney, I hate political commercials! Not all of this is true. I believe that both Obama and Romney are good people. As a Christian, I have to stand behind Romney. The reason for that is because President Obama has crossed the line and signed things into law that I do not believe are moral.

I believe that the only way to serve God is to serve others. I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. I stand by the tenant that sex should between a man and a woman in the holy bonds of matrimony. You may think I am being simplistic in my beliefs, but that is not it.

I had a loving, sweet brother who was one of the first homosexuals in this country to succumb to AIDS. I was 11 years old when he was born and I felt like he was my little boy for a long time. I practiced my parenting skills on him. I took care of him and my little sister who came along two years later. I would like to think that I will see him in heaven because he accepted Christ when he was around 11 years old. But, if that were so, how could he follow the gay lifestyle? I am not letting this eat me up because Paul was responsible for his own future and made his own choices.

I believe that living together without the benefit of marriage is wrong. I did it, knowing that it was wrong. I justified it because of so many excuses,  but when we got married, the feelings that we share were so much more intense than they had been in the four years of "living together." The big word then was "Commitment" and that made our commitment to Christ and the Church even stronger. We both longed to go to church during our time of living together, but did not feel that we should go to church and be hypocrites. Now, we are committed Christians because we know that God has forgiven our sin, because we came to him with a clear heart and confessed our sin and asked for forgiveness.

I believe that we should not speak ill of others and try to always be kind and use Christ as the model for our lives. I believe that we should not harm others by word or deed. Christ would not cast a stone at the prostitute who was about to be stoned. He said: "Let you who are without sin, cast the first stone." So, I will not cast stones at those who I feel are morally wrong. What they do is between them and God. As long as it does not hurt others. If I feel that they are morally wrong, I will not support them.

I believe that we become human at the moment of conception. How could we be anything else? God created us in his image. He says that we should not kill. Why then do people think that it is alright to kill a being that God created in his image? You should not blame a baby for the sins of their fathers. A baby is a precious gift from God no matter how conceived.

I think I really dislike Atheists because of their self-serving belief that there is no God. I have experienced some very nasty comments from Atheist on the Internet. They seem to look down their noses at those of us who believe in God. They tend to treat us as if we are idiots. If there is no God, they do not have to worry about who they hurt. Why should they care about what goes on in this world? Why not murder the innocent? What difference does it make to them if the earth is kept clean for the future. They will not be around. Personally, I feel sorry for them that they do not have faith in someone more than themselves. There is a dictum from Blaise Pascal, called Pascal's Wager, that is put into more modern simplified language by Albert Camus:

·          I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is. Albert Camus  

I think this is true to a certain extent, except if you do not truly believe there is a God and just say there is because you want to be on the good side if there is. God can see your heart and it would mean giving your life over to him completely, not just in case there is.


You may not agree with what I have said, but I hope you believe in my right to say it. I don't care to hear about dissenting opinions, I avoid them when possible. I do not argue and will not argue with your opinions. If you leave hateful, obscene comments, they will be deleted.



  1. Feelings are not right or wrong, it is how you act on them that gives them that value. Be called to God 1st. Honor His Truth, His Way, His Life. God has already with great Kingdom purpose decided on the man He will put into office. He has a plan. What He asks of us individually is to look at the platform we are standing with, make sure it is Holy Aligned with His truth.
