True Christian discipleship means faithfulness in living like the one we follow. I do not remember anywhere in the Gospels where Jesus berates, castigates, or condemns anyone for their race or sexual orientation.
I do remember him saying multiple times that we are to love each other more than we love ourselves. Maybe our spirituality should be determined more by how much we love rather than all the things we condemn…just a thought
Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. He did, on the other hand, have plenty to say about feeding the hungry, loving the poor, the danger of greed, the love of wealth, and religious leaders being hypocrites.
Maybe it’s time right-wing evangelicals paid more attention to what Jesus actually taught than their fear of those that are different,,,just a thought…
These wise words from the founder of the Methodist movement are perfect for the way I feel this morning. Each of us have our own thoughts and opinions about the outcome of the Presidential election. And none of us have the right to condemn someone for not agreeing with us.
The will of the majority has been made known. Now it is time for all of us to do our best to support the new President in every possible way. Time will show whose opinions about the choice of our leader was more correct.
As Wesley stated, everyone of us must give an account of themselves to God. Until then, I will pray for our new leaders, pray for the safety of our nation and our planet, and pray for all those that might not agree with opinions.
