  • One more thing Shep; I found it refreshing to read a political commentary by a Baptist Minister that was not a full bore shot at telling us how to vote. To come away from it with no certaintity as for whom you intended to cast your vote, was a rarity in these days of polarization, and almagamation of politics, and religion.

    Render unto Caesar has become a forgotten concept.

    You the man!

  • Thanks OKR -

    As I said Sunday from the Pulpit - I've come to believe that far too many believers equate patriotism with Christianity - they seem to think that the two aren't mutually distinct and separate.For me - the thought that you can't be patriotic unless you're a Christian - and the similar thought that you can't be a Christian unless you're patriotic - are just nonsense. Not that I've always felt that way - mind you.

    By the way - I also told the folks at church that voting - in and of itself - will never change the nation - although I always encourage everyone to get out and vote.

    I believe - and we will probably disagree on this - that the thing that will make the biggest difference in our nation is for Christians to start acting like Christians in their every day walk.

    Thanks again.

  • We disagee not so much on that point Shep. I agree that it would make a big difference. An even bigger difference would be made if the non-Christians would also emulate Jesus. I guess though that we are getting into Utopian territory with those wishes. Sure would be nice. :)

  • Glad to say our polling station was filled to capacity this morning at 7 a.m. Hope that's a good sign that folks are going to get out and vote.

  • Hope everyone made it to the polls - or is at least planning to go later today. Thanks!
