    It'd be Rev Wright all over again. However, since it's at a Republican rally, it's all cool! :clap2:

    Christians, somewhere along the way we have to take our eyes off of what is going on in the country and around the world. Our focus needs to be on our personal relationship woth God in Christ. When we seek Him, and walk with Him, we will be doing what He has called us to do, and nothing happening in the world should prevent that from happening.

    Yes, sometimes we will be doing God's will, and someone pulls the plug, and stops us. However, that is not a problem if we remain in the faith. God will either pick up the pieces and move on, or He will override what the world is doing and you will walk with Him into an awesome work of God.

    When we focus on what is happening in the world and around us, we will not be focused on God and His will for us. Whatever it takes, lets keep our eyes on Him, and walk on the waters of faith. If that means taking a stand that will cause you hard times, go for it, and praise God through it. Paul did that, and He discovered the truth, "God dwells in the praises of His people." Shadack, Misheck, and Abednigo (spelling?) experienced it, and walked through the fire, and came out unburned. Daniel lived through the lion's den experience. Gideon, Joshua, Moses, and more all walked in hard places, but came out on the other side to see the awesome work of God.

    So, Christians, FOCUS on Him, not the world. Be His. Walk where He walks, and in that path awesome things are happening.

    Because America is a choice land of prosperity and freedom for those who serve God. And there are still people who serve him.

    Hey, morons


    you're not even supposed to be a part of this world


    so shut the fuck up, stay out of politics, and stay in your homes where you belong


    We who ARE a part of this world and have a vested interest in it will handle things

    They wouldn't. The lyrics to their song would include "GOD DAMN AMERICA!" and "ABORTIONS SAVE THE PLANET!"
