First, I would like to say that I am not a highly political man.  All I know is that the politicians tend to make things a lot more difficult than they should be.  Whether you are a conservative, moderate, liberal, or just do not even care to get involved, I want to make this blog entry beneficial to everyone.  The 2012 Presidential elections have finally come to an end and the majority of the people have chosen Barack Obama to lead the nation for the next four years.  The U.S. Constitution gives every American citizen over the age of 18 the right to vote.  I have to admit that the weeks that led up to election day, the day itself, and for the next four years, a lot of voters have, are, and will act like immature children.  Why?  Because they did not get what they wanted, who they wanted, and when they wanted it.  People will complain about certain laws and policies and how things are being done.  They should be fortunate that they have the right to complain, however, what is the point?  If you have a complaint of any kind, I feel that you should either take some action to correct the issue and if that is not possible, just forget about it and move on.  If you complain and want to do something but do not know what, then find out.  We are living in an information age, where the World Wide Web is at your fingertips.  Do some research, get involved in the community, and be the change that you want to see in this world.

As for my fellow Christian brothers and sisters; THINK AND PRAY BEFORE YOU SPEAK AND ACT!  Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 22:21, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.”  I truly believe that this verse is referring to more than just money.  We have the Church, CORRECTION, we ARE the Church!  I am not suggesting that all Christians should stay out of politics, by no means.  We do not have the role, we have the COMMANDMENT to be living witnesses of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  It is our duty to live according to what the Scriptures say.  It is our duty to accept EVERYONE just as they are and LOVE them.  It is NOT our duty to save them or convert them, that job belongs to God alone!  It would be fantastic if the American laws and policies were completely Biblically based, nothing more and nothing less.  When we expect that, then we are making the same mistake the Jews made when Jesus was living among them over 2,000 years ago.  Our true home is not in this world, it is in heaven, so do not get too comfortable here.
