I have to believe that libs of all ages are doing the Hokey Pokey, the Hully Gully, Achy Breaky Heart, the Electric Slide, the Right Foot/Left Foot, the Cupid Shuffle, the Biker’s Shuffle, the Curly Shuffle, the Happy Line Dance, and a whole bunch more dancing over this. I’m talking about the huge division on the 'right’ and the poisonous rhetoric, childish, and often vitriolic name calling of late, which is not only appalling, it helps the left.
I have many friends that share my world viewpoint as a follower of Christ and I can safely say that while none of us are prepared to watch our nation fall without a fight, we will not and should not be forced to compromise on our core values while we are waiting on what we believe, in light of current accelerated prophetic events, to be the imminent return of our Lord, much less be shunned for it. Especially not by fellow conservative people who for the most part we agree with.
I’m not even asking our detractors in the blogosphere to come along side and agree with us, but it would sure be nice of them to show us the same common courtesy and respect that we exhibit when we don’t line up with their platform of "…we can’t win if we concentrate on issues and values.” I for one don’t understand what any of us are winning if we don’t stand up for what we believe, and if that gets me or any of the rest of us labelled as "holy rollers" or anything else, I guess I can live with it because my mission and ministry is to sound the alarm, not only of what ails America and the world, but also how it ties into the bigger picture of the spiritual warfare that is going on all around us.
I am reminded of the story in Daniel 3:16-21 when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow to the graven image Nebuchadnezzar had made and decreed all subjects to worship and they were tossed into a blazing furnace for their faith. Not only did they survive, Nebuchadnezzar realized the truth they revealed and changed his ways. And just as they would not bow to a graven image, many of my friends and I are willing to face the furnace of the taunts, innuendos, and veiled demands of those willing to believe the empty words of power hungry men to ‘win.’Add a comment
