Nothing has changed as far as I can see. He’s still the same greedy, egotistical racist as he was in 1990. Oh, except that now he has the power to enrich himself and demonstrate just how little he cares for the rest of the people of this nation. Will we ever learn?
“Ray Buchanan founded Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) and retired in 2015. Comments made on this site are the sole expression of the author, are not made on behalf of the organization, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the organization.”
This is why I continue to be amazed, confused, and just totally dismayed by the huge numbers of those professing to follow Jesus that actually voted for the #BLOTUS and still support him. Anyone who is seeking to demonstrate the love of Christ, cannot possibly think that this man reflects anything other than the complete and total repudiation of all that Christ is and that He teaches.
The values of Drumpf are not Christian values. The #BLOTUS does not demonstrate any of the values taught by Jesus. Those ignoring these facts need to seriously reflect on just how shallow their spirituality must be to defend and support such a man.
i cannot find the author of this poem, but I want to thank the writer for these thoughts. As we finish out the last few days of this year I can think of no better reminder for us. This is also the perfect focal point for looking into the new year that looms ahead of us.
Love is the only thing that really matters. Nothing else comes close.
If we are able to integrate these thoughts into our resolutions for the upcoming year we can change more lives than we can imagine, starting with our own. Let’s focus on demonstrating more love this coming year.
Let’s love more, care more, and show more compassion for those around us in 2017. Love is the answer. Nothing else matters.
I have a real issue with this. We live in a world where over 20 of our family still die every day from hunger. This, therefore, strikes me as obscene.
I think of myself as a practicing Christian, and for me such inequality is a matter of both basic morality and faithfulness to the teaching of Christ. Allowing any to starve, or even go in want, is unacceptable when we have means to prevent it. It is wrong on every level.
Facts such as these serve as a reality check. Such disparity is a clear indication that we refuse to accept we are one family. Such statistics also demonstrate that calling ourselves followers of Jesus Christ is far different than living as one.
True success is far more than more power, prestige and money. True success must include significance. And to be significant we must live lives of active compassion. We must love others even as Christ has first loved us.
