Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing with you something I wrote a long, long time ago, and forgot to share with you.
What is it about? I'll be discussing something that relates to people in general.
Some people don't believe in mixing politics and religion.
In fact, our legal rights in Canada and in USA allow us freedom of religion.
I praise God for this! After all, there are many countries in this world, that are dominated by groups who kill others, in order to maintain their dominance in religion.
On the surface, it sounds like a good thing to not mix politics and religion.
However, the reality of such a statement is, at least in my mind, impossible. Why? Well, look at the reality of the statement and the situation that surrounds it.
Each of us have been brought up in one of many religious or non-religious environments.
Some don't believe in God at all. Where they get their opinions on right and wrong, are anyone's guess.
Those considered to be religious in nature, get their opinions on right and wrong from their varied religious backgrounds.
True? Hopefully, you agree.
As for me, I do not consider myself religious. Although, I do believe in God. And, in my Saviour, my Lord, Jesus Christ, who has saved me from an eternity in Hell, by providing a way of escape for me. Yes, I will be spending eternity in heaven with God, forever. For...e...v...e...r.
That's a long time!
Because I trust in Jesus, I also believe God's Word, the Bible. It teaches those who believe, not just what to believe upon, but also how to live their lives.
Okay, I'm not perfect. I've had times in my life when I know God would be ashamed of me. I've been ashamed of myself.
But, Jesus said in Luke 5:32, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
So, okay. We agree. I'm not perfect. But, neither are you. In fact, no one is perfect.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
What I am leading up to, is the fact that because I believe in Jesus Christ, and have repented, plus because I believe God's Word, the Bible, I believe in what has been taught, concerning right from wrong.
In my opinion, this is the basis for political agenda.
Hopefully, it's your opinion, as well.
Until next time...
