You want to know what I think? (probably not, but you're going to hear it anyway)
We don't need the government running anything else. We don't need more taxes, we don't need more healthcare, or most of the other things they've been arguing about; We need to remember that this nation was brought into existence because some people were tired of being told what they could and could not believe, and they were tired of being punished for not seeing things the way the government wanted them to. Hmmm...does this sound familiar? It seems to me that Americans are doing the very things the Pilgrims came over to get away from!
As we near Thankgiving, let's go back and remember what our nation was founded on! It's not about politics, or who is the next president of the United States (and believe me, if you care anything about our nation, there is only ONE choice, and it's NOT [the democratic candidate]), it's not about the economy and whose fault it is, it's not about the war, and if it is right or wrong; no, it's not any of those things - Our focus should be, as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:2, "Jesus Christ, and him crucified." It's all about the Cross!
I was listening to a song this evening that pretty much sums it up for me:
That cleanses sin and sets the captive free
It's still the name - the name of Jesus that has power to save the lost
It's still the Cross!
