I am a Republican and there are people on this thread that have lost their minds and their way. I’m an December girl my lips are the gun my smile is the trigger shirt and I am not really mainstream in my faith. Many times I keep it to myself. But somethings happening here what is ain’t exactly clear. I’ve heard some pretty crappy things recently. I don’t remember the excerpt in the bible where it states God’s children are reserved for America? As a matter of fact very contrary throughout the Bible the message is that all children are a gift from God. Black, white, brown, red, yellow, purple, blue, and rainbow. Jesus said to the effect. Let the children come to him for the kingdom of heaven is theirs. Some people would serve themselves better by looking very closely at their relationship in spirituality based on the teachings of Christ. Before they comment. That looking at things before you aren’t cookie cutter. Yet somehow judgemental of a child is ok today because if Origin? We have strayed so far so quickly. Generally, without exact quotes from scripture. It has been a long time. I remember that Christ believed in the laws of the land and of his religion. Give unto Caesar that is Caesar’s. Give unto God what is God’s.

But for example one of my favourite excerpts was in the book of John. I’m an December girl my lips are the gun my smile is the trigger shirt and I believe chapter 8 with Mary Magdalen. When he came across her being stoned for ” crimes” he was presented with the law or even things as a man who believed in religious law and thought actions like this may be right. Christ the son of man. In that human moment. Jesus Christ allowed his compassion and humanity to reign. They said to him this woman has broken the law and the law of Moses. She needed to be stoned. In this, he was also presented with the opportunity to do what his heart said was right. He stopped the stoning and presented to the mob. That if they do not have sins to cast the next stone. They reflected and did not. When they walked away Jesus was the last remaining. He asked where did they go? Did they stay and accuse you? She said no. Jesus said neither will I. ( she was with him until the very end) Jesus acted out of humanity because he was in a human moment. Because the opportunity of humanity over law was front and centre. Such valuable lessons in this teaching.
