Mission #1: A Message to Demoralized Conservatives
"In His great mercy He has given us new birth into A LIVING HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." 1 Peter 1:3, NIV
Last night sucked; I'm not going to sugarcoat it, last night really sucked.
There is hope, but only in Christ.
A year ago, during Occupy Wall St., I was exactly where you are today. Republicans were (are) ineffective, people were (are) hooked on Big Government, and idiot college kids were (are) only interested in having their alcohol consumption and sexual promiscuity subsidized. I felt despair, and it really, really, sucked.
Then I started reading the Bible.
The specifics of why I started reading scripture aren't important, but it started with a David Barton video; what's important is that I started with Genesis 1:1 and continued, five chapters per day, until I reached Revelation 22:21.
If you are politically conservative, understand this: God wants a relationship with you, and you already agree with 90-95% of what He thinks. We are in a spiritual war and taking it on by ourselves is insane. God is willing to be our clean-up hitter, but we first have to ask Him.
Buy a Bible, start reading it, and find a local Church this Sunday; trust me.
