I'm doing it!

(Image courtesy
I shy away from politricks(tics) because I do believe that most politicians will say anything to get elected. It has however come to my realization that majority of the people protesting these healthcare reforms have no idea what socialism actually means. And even if they do, they refuse to acknowledge that some of our social institutions e.g public school system, roads etc are socialist ideals. What gets to me the most is the hypocritical behavior of certain Christians who claim they do not want the government to take their money to help the poor!!!
Wow, what happened to letting mercy rule over justice? It makes my heart heavy to see that some Christians take God's grace for granted. We pretend as if we are so deserving of God's grace and others are not. We act like it is by our doing and our efforts that we obtained God's grace which is free for ALL! Maybe I am not getting it but isn't our focus supposed to be on God's word and doesn't his word say "whatsoever you do to the least of these, you have done unto me"(Matthew 25:40) So why are people opposing healthcare for all?
I was so alarmed to hear that pastor claim that if someone took a gun and shot Obama, it would not be murder! I am gravely sorry for the people who attend his church. If a doctor gets in trouble for giving the wrong medication, then a preacher should be in a worst situation for putting anyone's soul in danger! We're talking eternal damnation here!
So yes I did, I went there. If Christians understood the grace which saved them while they were still in their filth, they should be acting better and being gracious to others too! Lord ha' mercy!

True Say!
But let's face facts... (some/most) christians are not very serious with their religion...they pick what suits them and leave the rest, conveniently forget (i'm also guilty ofcourse)...i mean come on, we make christianity seem more liberal than it really is...its almost like 'hey, if u want a religion dats gonna cut u mad slack, choose christianity, no need to pray 5 times, no need for any intense rituals...jus chill'. SMH!

Very true as well. I suppose it is because of the idea of free will;that God has given us the right to choose.We end up abusing that grace:(

I truly believe a lot of the people making noise about the free health care could care less if it was a white person making the pitch...

America and health care, isnt america the most powerful nation in the world; why cant they afford free health care for the people..

I think it's so sad the way the healthcare debate is going in America. People are so passionate, but (I believe) their passion is sooo misdirected!

I agree with your post, Maxine, how can the Christians be reacting like this? I think at times as Christians we do not understand fully what God did when he gave us his grace. If we did there is no way people could behave like this.

Maybe it's because I'm British, it's disgraceful!
