So how to respond without making oneself stoop to the level of a non-believer? This is the hardest thing to do. Very rarely do I seem to get it right. My mind races and my tongue spews before rationale can intercede. Anger is a dangerous thing. For a Christian it can be the worst because you taint your witness when you speak before tempering the tongue.
We will run across Pharisees and other religious types as well as authentic Christians and non-Christians throughout our life. Chances are good that professing Christians will not receive a gentle rebuke humbly. They will reject it. Isn’t this what the Pharisees did routinely when Jesus pointed out the truth to them? The truth was always objectionable for them to hear.
For me, I’m taking stock of my life today and I have come to the unfortunate realization that yes, there are individuals that I simply feel no kinship toward. Okay, I’ll say it. I can’t stand them for one reason or another. That’s a bit embarrassing.
As we go through life, we need to be aware of the fact that while God wants us to avoid evil, the best way to do that is by actively meeting needs of people who have real needs! We cannot do this with an “I have to do this even though I don’t want to” attitude. It must be done because we truly care about people. We care that they are lost. We care that they have needs that they honestly cannot meet. We care enough to do something for them because their need is right in front of us!
Dayna Morales Claims Anti-Lesbian Bigots Left Her No Tip But They Say They Left $18 So Who is Right?
Ultimately though, if Morales is lying – and the evidence seems to more than suggest it – what she has done is fraudulent. There are legal ramifications for her course of actions. She lied and defamed someone (even though we don’t know who they are), and she involved herself in fraud by accepting money based on a lie. She may not have gone out and solicited funds. People may have simply wanted to offer donations to her. The fact that she accepted those funds could land her in some trouble.
It is easy to remain uninitiated when it comes to world affairs, especially as they involve the U.S. and China. The reason for that is simply due to the fact that the mainstream news bureaus in the United States are not telling us anything. They are deliberately keeping us in the dark and since most Americans do not do their own research, their “news” and information is what is presented on these mainstream news channels. If the situation involving China as related to the U.S. is not presented, then Americans know nothing of it. In reality, news bureaus have become disinformation bureaus.
In a 2008 interview on CSPAN with Former Senator Tom Daschle, Reid said that the “nuclear option” would make the Senate a “unicameral legislature” like the House of Representatives, meaning that the Senate would have a single legislative chamber. He also went on to say that the Senate “was set up to be different. That was the genius of our Founding Fathers. That’s why you have the ability to filibuster and terminate filibuster.”
