Matthew 19: 21-23
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
I wonder what Jesus would think about someone who is rich & not the least bit Christian in behavior with his 2 Corinthians self entering into the kingdom of President of the US. I want Jesus to help me not have hatred & disgust in my heart for white people who “voted their white consequence” for Trump. How do they not realize your bigoted vote is not much off from siding with white nationalist groups and KKK? To not shake my head in disbelief of a pop star with a pastor daddy and momma who love the money their daughter probably puts in the church and some of the fame rubbed off on them because of it. Yet even she as a Clinton supporter couldn’t convinced her hypocritical, hate in their heart, fake Christian parents on how horrible a person Donald J Trump is and not vote for him. Apparently to me they not that much of a Christian in their beliefs if they put them to the side to vote for this anti-Christian individual. #Eyeroll
I want Jesus to help me understand the ignorant 53% of white women who voted for him . In spite of this fool’s notorious sexist & sexual inappropiate history that is ok and given a pass with this white man. But not so much of bad sexist behavior or sexual inappropriate mess when it is the likes of BLACK Bill Cosby or Nate Parker . For that I say God Bless Racial Hypocrisy in America with the double standards given on when white men & black men are sexually inappropriate. #Eyeroll
I want God to help my understand how in this age of information easily available even with two unlikable candidates why was common sense & apathy
resulting in low voter turn out.
I need for Ephesians 6:10-18 to give me comfort at this time!
Ephesians 6:10-18New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
As an Imperfect Christian I am not ready to make nice with those who want us to unify. Especially as these individuals calling for unity weren’t soo wishing to do the same the last 8 years. Even as I reluctantly dealt with the 8 years of Bush. These Trump supporters who are oblivious to the backlash from hateful Trump supporters terrorizing people of color. Who don’t know of young kids fearful of being sent back to homelands if not from the US. I will fight with folks who are like minded. I have no tolerance for those who aren’t willing to understand. My hatred in my heart for the majority who voted for this as President who are mostly not of my hue and share the same gender as myself I will not be able to get rid of AT ALL!
